I think I a superheroine movie could work, but the margin for error is much smaller. You are already putting 80% of your customer base on guard (Straight males with no wish fufillment investment in the characters) so the end product has to be that much more above reproach it to have a shot. That is a huge risk to take when there is a 100+ million dollars on the line and less riskier properties available.
Anyway rights issues aside, this character has more than enough of a good back story to create a decent film. And I think just the name alone would create enough buzz/curiosity to bring in a good chunk of people who perhaps never even knew she existed.

The visual is just about the last reason any character should be turned into a movie. It always changes radically once you bring real human beings (as opposed to drawings) into the mix. The first thing that goes away is the spandex, afterall. Real human beings look pretty silly in the spandex bodysuits. You can't make a movie on the basis of, "She's hot." That turns it into objectification instead of characterization... and good characterization is a pretty key component to a good movie.
But you are right. She does have an interesting story. That's really the only part that matters.
i'd rather a story about jessica as an espionage agent who just happens to have creepy spider powers.

Personally, I would want to see Ms. Marvel before Spider-Woman. You can do some high speed crazy flying action sequences.

Hey, that tiger is flying a spaceship.
If there would be a film, who would be the antagonist? What justifies her wearing her costume in fighting them?
Would you like her to have a British accent?
