Earlier tonight, we found out that actress turned director Olivia Wilde (Booksmart) had signed on to helm a mysterious female-centric Marvel movie for Sony Pictures. Though unconfirmed, the untitled project was believed to be Spider-Woman, and Wilde now appears to have made it official.
The Tron: Legacy star sent out the following Tweet shortly after the news broke. She doesn't mention the character by name, but that Spider emoji should leave little doubt.
Several different characters have assumed the identity of Spider-Woman over the years, and despite the initial report indicating that Wilde - who will also co-write the film with Katie Silberman - may introduce a brand new hero to take up the mantle, our money is on Jessica Drew.
Previous rumors have suggested that Sony may be looking into developing a spinoff focusing on the original (and best?) incarnation of Spider-Woman, which makes her the most likely candidate.
Plus, Marvel just sent out this Tweet! Coincidence? Maybe...
