Dublin’s Gaiety School of Acting alum Olivia Wilde has reportedly signed on to direct and develop a Spider-Woman movie.
While Sony hasn’t confirmed exactly what the project is, Wilde did hint at a spider-related character with a simple tweeted emoji.
…Deadline also has it that this is a “completely revamped” version of Spider-Woman, which means it probably won’t be a Gwen Stacy spin-off from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Of course, it could still be a live-action version of the Spider-Gwen iteration, or it could be about Jessica Drew, or Julia Carpenter, or heck even Mary Jane Watson. All these characters have used the Spider-Woman moniker at one point, so it’s hard to know which one will be under Wilde’s guidance.
