Sony, after all, had no remark.
The mission is separate from Sony’s all-female Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse spin-off, although it is going to possible embody new takes on the identical characters. Spider-Lady as a personality presents a variety of prospects, because the title has been held by a number of characters together with Gwen Stacy, Mary Jane Watson and Jessica Drew. Jessica Drew is the preferred iteration of this character, turning into the primary to don the costume within the late 1970s, with a revamp in the 2000s that turned her into certainly one of Marvel’s hottest Spider characters. Nonetheless, Wilde is engaged on her personal “revamp” of the character, and it’s unknown what course she’ll take for the movie. Contemplating Wilde’s expertise for creating nuanced feminine relationships and ornery, strong-willed girls, it’s possible she’ll lean into later characterizations of Jessica Drew, who shed her pin-up status to be a assured, succesful chief in 2005’s The New Avengers. Maybe Wilde will even toss a couple of different widespread feminine Spider characters in there, like Silk or Spider-Gwen.
Coming off her broadly acclaimed directorial debut Booksmart, Wilde has change into one of the crucial in-demand feminine administrators in Hollywood.
