While the Marvel Cinematic Universe is expanding at an exponential rate, the Sony Universe of Marvel Characters has also been working on increasing its roster of Spider-Man characters. The latest rumours suggest that Spider-Woman may be introduced and that Daisy Ridley is being lined up to take on the role.
The Spider-Woman rumours have been around for a while but we have as yet received no confirmation that this is in fact happening. We have heard that Olivia Wilde is lined up to direct the project and the only clues were a tweet from the director herself. Wilde stated that she was going to direct an all-female superhero movie with a spider emoji. The latest rumours are that Daisy Ridley is being eyed for the headline role.
On her Twitter account, Author Sariah Wilson asked Ridley if she had heard these rumours and what truth there was to them. Ridley explained that not only had she NOT been cast, she had not even been approached. But she did speak out about her opinion on the matter.
While Ridley has denied the claims, she seems very excited about the prospect and went on to say how much she loved Spider-Man into the Spider-Verse and is currently keeping up with the Disney+ series, WandaVision.
