Scary, Baby, Ginger, Sporty, Posh – and everything tosh? While reunion rumours seemingly vary from day to day, news comes that the Spice Girls are right behind an animated superhero movie bearing their likenesses.
The project is apparently being shopped around the places that you shop these things around, according to Variety.
Set to revolve around the very valid “girl power” message that the quintet spruiked so well, each member will have their own specific power based upon their image. Sporty? Sure. Scary? OK. Ginger? Bloodnut positivity! Baby? Uh, maybe. But Posh? We’re not sure how positive Vic Beckham’s contribution can be. “Shopping powers activate!”? (Of course, to be fair, in real life Posh has done a heap of great charity work, but we’re not sure that her Spice Girls persona offers much positivity to work on.)
Apparently “a source” said of the plans: “The Spice Girls are thinking big in terms of a franchise on a global scale. They’re the most successful girl group on the planet. It’s just what Marvel or Disney needs.”
Look out Wonder Woman, Black Panther et al.
Meanwhile, have some Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup…
