Sony Hire Olivia Wilde To Direct Female Fronted Marvel Movie Rumoured To Be ‘Spider-Woman’



Olivia Wilde (Booksmart) has been hired by Sony to direct a female lead Spider-Man spin-off movie.

Per Deadline, Wilde has signed a deal to direct and develop a secret Marvel film, thought to be Spider-Woman, although not confirmed.

A few characters have held the mantle of Spider-Woman over the years, so it will be interesting to see who will be under the mask. It will most likely be Jessica Drew, but with the success of Spider-Gwen in Spider-Man into the Spider-Verse they could also go down route.

Wilde teams up again with screenwriter Katie Silberman, who will pen the film’s script. The two previously worked together on Booksmart.

Whilst Wilde hasn’t revealed which Sony Marvel film she will helm, she did take to Twitter last night to tease the announcement with a little spider emoji.

Amy Pascal, who is synonymous with the Spider-Man franchise will produce again.
