There might be a Spice Girls animated superhero movie

All five members are said to be "fired up about the idea"

Spice Girls have signed on for an upcoming animated superhero movie, according to reports.

The long-rumoured Spice Girls reunion has been on and off for months, with speculation of a possible tour making headlines.

Variety now reports that a “superhero-themed movie working off of the ‘girl power’ message” is currently “being shopped to potential production partners”.

All five members will voice a different character that has “a ‘girl power’ unique to that group member that reflects each girl’s personality”.

Victoria Beckham, Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton, Mel B and Mel C are all said to be “fired up about the idea”, with a source adding: “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.”

It was recently reported that the group were considering performing as a fourpiece after the prospect of a reunion tour was dismissed by Posh Spice.

However, Mel C later stated that the group wouldn’t reform without Victoria Beckham.

“Victoria has been quite vocal, it’s really not something she wants to do at this time,” Mel C said. “I think it has to be all five, so it’s tricky.”
