Since the concept is being completely revamped by Wilde, it’s unknown the direction the studio will go with her.
This marks the second film based around a female character in Sony’s universe of Marvel characters to land a director after S.J. Clarkson was tapped to direct a Madame Webb movie.
Sony is also developing Black Cat and Silver Sable movies and is clearly making the effort to diversify the universe.
Wilde is repped by CAA, Untitled Entertainment and Ziffren Brittenham. »
