Olivia Wilde has been tapped to direct an untitled female-centered Marvel film for Sony which may be a Spider-Woman film.
Following the success of Marvel’s 2012 megahit, The Avengers, studios have been trying left and right to replicate the success of the cinematic universe which includes Sony. Sony has heald on the Spider-Man film rights for decades and likewise has tried to put together its own cinematic universe out of the franchise. The first major attempt was with the 2014 film, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 which crashed and burned. Since then Sony has put forth new efforts in its own Spider-Man cinematic universe with films like Venom and Morbius. But now it looks like they may be taking a shot at Spider-Woman.
According to new reports, actress turned director Oliva Wilde has been tapped to direct a female-centered Marvel film for Sony. The actress, who is perhaps best known for her work on the 2010 film, Tron: Legacy and the television series, House, garnered critical acclaim for her work on 2019 Booksmart. Now it seems that Sony wants her to bring her talent to a superhero film.
While nothing has been confirmed, the Marvel/Sony film that Olivia Wilde will be directing is expected to be a Spider-Woman film. Olivia Wilde herself and Katie Silberman will write the currently untitled movie with Amy Pascal producing the upcoming film. Sony had no comment when asked about the project.
