Olivia Wilde continues to be connected to direct a secret Marvel mission so don’t be concerned darling
Olivia Wilde has spent most of 2022 embroiled in controversy round her film Don’t Worry Darling, which generated an inordinate quantity of controversy referring to departed star Shia LaBeouf, supposed rifts between star Florence Pugh and Wilde, and an entire bunch of salacious gossip about unprofessional habits on set.
But, Wilde is now trying ahead to a hopefully much less tabloid-friendly stint within the Marvel universe. She’s lined as much as direct a Marvel function for Sony, presumably happening within the spinoff universe centered round Spider-Man characters. We haven’t heard a lot about this for some time, however THR has noted that she’s “still attached to direct a Marvel feature for Sony.”
Wilde has been cagey about what characters she’d be working with, although in an interview with Variety some time again, she stated she preferred the Marvel strategy of giving new filmmakers an opportunity to direct a big-budget blockbuster:
“I will say that I think the Marvel approach of allowing newer filmmakers to come into the fold and have access to those tools of the Marvel universe is incredibly exciting. I am a big fan of what they’re doing over there… but, yeah, I can’t confirm whether that is what that is.”
The rumor mill says that Wilde’s mission could also be function on Jessica Drew, aka Spider-Woman. Sony are already arduous at work on Madame Web, which can function a number of Spider-Women, though Drew (arguably probably the most well-known hero to bear that title) isn’t anticipated to be making an look.
If Wilde is engaged on Spider-Woman, we’d count on it to be influenced by the occasions of Madame Web, which is prone to contact on the mystic Spider-Totem storylines from the comics that specify why so many Marvel heroes find yourself clinging to partitions and swinging from webs.
Let’s hope we get some firmer particulars quickly. In the meantime, Madame Web is presently in manufacturing and scheduled for launch on Feb 16, 2024.
