Olivia Wilde had a simple way of teasing Marvel fans after news she might be directing a Spider-Woman movie for Sony arrived online.
After the surprising news that Booksmart director Olivia Wilde has signed on to develop a female hero solo movie for Sony, she briefly teased who she could be bringing to the big screen. Reports circulated saying her film was believed to be Spider-Woman, although that remains unconfirmed. Other possible candidates could be a hero like Spider-Gwen or Silk. Sony is clearly charging forward with their own universe, with 2021 also delivering Jared Leto’s Morbius and Tom Hardy’s Venom sequel.
Olivia Wilde’s as-of-yet untitled Sony movie isn’t the only female Spider-Man character getting a solo film, with S.J. Clarkson recently signing on to help Sony’s Madame Web movie. But the director took to Twitter following the announcement, quoting Deadline’s report with a simple spider emoji. While Sony has the rights to most characters and villains related to Spider-Man, most fans assumed this means Olivia Wilde will be taking on Spider-Woman for Sony. The director also expressed her excitement to work with Kate Silberman on the film with a post on her Instagram story. The pair previously teamed up for Booksmart. Take a look at the director teasing her potential Spider-Woman film below.
