Giant Freakin Robot: Maisie Williams In Talks For Major Marvel Role As Vision’s Daughter

With the poor performance of 2020’s The New Mutants plus Disney’s acquisition of Fox, Maisie Williams may have understandably assumed her chance to play any kind of Marvel superhero had come and gone. But according to our trusted and proven source, the Game of Thrones alum has received a welcome surprise. Maisie Williams is talking to Marvel about playing Vivian, the daughter of Paul Bettany’s Vision.

As for what film and/or show Williams is negotiating to appear in, our source wasn’t able to tell us. However one of the most obvious guesses would be the unofficial but almost certainly planned Young Avengers project. As Marvel Comics fans have been quick to point out in every instance, characters who have either appeared in the Young Avengers comic or who — as teen superheroes — would be a perfect fit have been popping up all over the Marvel Cinematic Universe; particularly in the related Disney+ series like WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, Hawkeye, and most recently Ms. Marvel. You can add to that list America Chavez from Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Cassie Lang from the Ant-Man films. Maisie Williams as the daughter of Vision would be a natural addition.

Vivian, or Viv as she’s usually called, was introduced along with her brother Vin and her mother Virginia in 2016’s Vision #1 by Tom King and Gabriel Hernandez Walta. The series — often credited as one of the inspirations for WandaVision — follows the eponymous synthezoid as he builds his own family of synthezoids and tries to live a “normal” suburban life. Something like the Vision comic could be what Marvel has in mind to introduce Maisie Williams as the daughter of Vision.

The last time we saw the “real” reactivated Vision, it was in the WandaVision finale when he had broken free from S.W.O.R.D.’s control and left Westview behind. After his confrontation with the Wanda-created Vision, the revived synthezoid seemed unsure about exactly what/who he was. Confused and without his old Avengers buddies for help, might not the bone-white Vision consider building his own family like his counterpart in the 2016 comic? It’s only speculation, but you have to admit — it would be a decent way to introduce Maisie Williams as Vision’s daughter.

In the comics, Viv has never been an official member of the Young Avengers, she was one of the young heroes to join Marvel’s revived Champions series. Originally a gathering of Marvel heroes in the seventies seemingly thrown together by having names pulled out of a hat — e.g. Hercules, Iceman, Ghost Rider, Black Widow — the team was resuscitated in 2016 as a teen team. with members like Ms. Marvel, the Miles Morales Spider-Man, the Amadeus Cho Hulk, etc. Maisie Williams’ future character of Viv, daughter of Vision, was there from the beginning as well.

Most recently, Williams played model and punk rock fashion pioneer Jordan Mooney in FX on Hulu’s biopic mini-series Pistols. Before Maisie Williams plays the daughter of Vision, she has a couple of other projects lined up. Per Variety, in the upcoming Apple TV+ series The New Look she’ll play World War II French Resistance fighter Catherine Dior. She’ll also be joining Freddie Highmore in the comedy Sinners V. Saints based on the real-life “Manacled Mormon” sex scandal.

People: Maisie Williams Is Excited There’s ‘So Much Story to Tell’ in a Games of Thrones Jon Snow Spin-Off

HBO is reportedly in the early stages of developing a live-action Game of Thrones spin-off series based on Kit Harington’s Jon Snow

Maisie Williams is just as hyped as Game of Thrones fans are that Kit Harington’s Jon Snow may soon be back on screen in his own series.

“Everything surrounding the story [of GOT] is very exciting,” Williams told PEOPLE exclusively this week while attending the Cannes Lions Festival with Spotify.

“We had such a rich show, and there’s still so much story to tell,” continued the 25-year-old actress, who played Snow’s sibling Arya Stark throughout all eight seasons of the series.

“I think it’s really exciting, and I think that Kit is such a phenomenal actor. Him playing Jon Snow was just like a cultural reset,” added Williams, who recently launched the podcast Frank Film Club with Maisie Williams, which is available on Spotify. “I think everything that he touches is magic, and I’m excited to see what it’s going to be.”

Since Thrones concluded, Harington has appeared in a slew of screen projects, including the Marvel Cinematic Universe film Eternals and Amazon Studios’ Modern Love. He also appeared on stage in the National Theater’s live production of Henry V.

Earlier this month, The Hollywood Reporter shared that HBO is in the early stages of developing the live-action GOT spin-off based on Snow.

Harington, 35, is attached to reprise the iconic role — which earned him two Emmy nominations — if the project move forward to a series, per THR.

In GOT’s final season, Snow learned he was a potential heir to the Iron Throne before he was exiled from Westeros and began a new journey elsewhere.

Should a Snow-centered series come to fruition, Williams could technically reprise her role of Arya — but would she be open to starring in her own sequel series?

“It’s obviously a very exciting prospect,” Williams told PEOPLE, “so never say never.”

As far as potential storylines that an Arya-focused spin-off could mine, Williams said she has yet “to really discover” what she’d like to see next — but diehard viewers are giving her plenty of ideas.

“I’m still learning so much from fans that I meet … and they’re always recounting the parts of the show that they love, the parts of the show that were meaningful for them and the parts of Arya’s journey that were meaningful for them,” Williams shared. “I feel like I’m learning it all for the first time in a way right now.”

“So I’m still kind of piecing together what I think it should be, what I think would make people happy, and what I think would be fulfilling as well, as an actor, to do some kind of transition,” she added. “We can’t just do the same thing that we did — it’s got to be new. But what are the parts that we would want to take with us and what are the parts that we would do differently? So I think I’m still kind of discovering that.”

WWF UK: Maisie Williams global ambassador

April 27, 2021

We’re proud to announce actress Maisie Williams as our new global ambassador for climate and nature! The world is our shared home and together, we can help protect it and put nature on the road to recovery.

Entertainment Weekly: Maisie Williams, Toby Wallace among cast for Danny Boyle’s Sex Pistols FX series

Wallace will take the lead as guitarist Steve Jones.

Since playing with the music of The Beatles in his 2019 movie Yesterday, director Danny Boyle has set his sights on bringing another English band to the screen: the Sex Pistols.

Boyle will executive produce and direct Pistol, an upcoming six-episode limited series for FX about Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones, based on Jones’ 2018 memoir Lonely Boy: Tales from a Sex Pistol.

FX has already found actors for the Sex Pistols. Toby Wallace (Babyteeth) will portray Jones; Anson Boon (Blackbird) will play singer John Lydon; Louis Patridge (Enola Holmes) will play bassist Sid Vicious; Jacob Slater will play drummer Paul Cook; Fabien Frankel (The Serpent) will play bass guitarist Glen Matlock; and Dylan Llewellyn (Derry Girls) will play Wally Nightingale, who founded the band The Strand with Cook and Jones that would eventually become the Sex Pistols.

Game of Thrones and The New Mutants star Maisie Williams will play Pamela Rooke, a.k.a. punk icon Jordan. The main cast will also include Sydney Chandler (Don’t Worry Darling) as Chrissie Hynde and Emma Appleton (The Witcher) as Nancy Spungen.

Pistol promises to take viewers through West London’s council estates and Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren’s notorious Kings Road SEX shop, while tackling the international controversy that came with the release of the album Never Mind the Bollocks.

“Imagine breaking into the world of The Crown and Downton Abbey with your mates and screaming your songs and your fury at all they represent,” Boyle said in a statement. “This is the moment that British society and culture changed forever. It is the detonation point for British street culture…where ordinary young people had the stage and vented their fury and their fashion…and everyone had to watch & listen…and everyone feared them or followed them. The Sex Pistols. At its center was a young charming illiterate kleptomaniac—a hero for the times—Steve Jones, who became in his own words, the 94th greatest guitarist of all time. This is how he got there.”

The series was created by executive producer Craig Pearce and is written Pearce and Frank Cottrell Boyce.

Dazed: Watch Maisie Williams recite an excerpt from the Green New Deal

As part of our Dazed Texts series, the actor delivers a passionate plea to save the climate, using the words of the 2019 bill put forward by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

“I want children of my own in the future, but it scares me that the world they will live in could be unsafe,” Maisie Williams told Dazed last year. “I don’t want to be denied the right to have a child because the world is burning.”

Known to many as Arya Stark in Game of Thrones, and for her roles in the recent TV series, Two Weeks to Live, and upcoming film, The New Mutants, Williams is also a keen climate activist; part of a generation that’s mobilising for action. As well as being an ambassador for WaterAid and a spokesperson for Greenpeace and the Dolphin Project, the actor is currently working on a documentary about salmon fishing and protecting endangered whales, titled Searching for Chinook.

Having first learned about the climate crisis at school, Williams has since expressed her dismay at those in “really powerful places who still seem to refuse the science”. Now, in the latest episode of Dazed Texts, the actor addresses this inaction, and makes a passionate plea about the urgency of change. Reciting the Green New Deal – put forward by New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in 2019 – Williams reflects on the damage caused by the crisis and outlines the steps we need to take to protect the planet and young people’s future.

“This is a resolution,” she cries, “recognising the duty of governments (and all of us little people) to create a Green New Deal.”

Williams goes on to list the aims of the deal, including achieving “net-zero greenhouse gas emissions”, creating “millions of good, high-wage jobs”, and securing “clean air and water, healthy food, and a sustainable environment” for all. “I mean, yeah,” she adds, “we want all those things.”

“The duty is to promote justice and equity,” concludes Williams, “by stopping current, preventing future, and repairing historic oppression of indigenous peoples, communities of colour, migrant communities, deindustrialised communities, depopulated rural communities, the poor, low-income workers, women, the elderly, the unhoused, people with disabilities, and youth.”

The Green New Deal is a package of US legislation which aims to address climate change and economic equality. As explained in a 2019 Dazed op-ed, the plan was first proposed in 2007, but the idea saw an enormous surge in support last year, after AOC unveiled her radical vision for a just transition. It’s an ambitious ten-year national action plan to tackle climate breakdown in a way that improves peoples’ lives and builds a fairer, more democratic society and economy.

Williams’ rendition is part of Dazed’s partnership with #TOGETHERBAND, a campaign raising awareness for the UN’s crucial global goals, 17 targets that range from promoting gender equality to working toward greater sustainability, with the aim to make the world a better place by 2030. This edition of Dazed Texts focuses on ‘affordable and clean energy’, an aim which will encourage growth and help the environment by ensuring universal access to affordable electricity by 2030.

Previous Dazed Texts have featured Simran Randhawa considering love and consumerism as she recites an extract from bell hooks’ seminal book, All About Love, and Rose McGowan, who took on the behemoth that is Facebook by offering her magnetic take on Mark Zuckerberg’s congress testimony.
