Warner Bros. might soon be adding a touch of celestial flair to their roster, as they’re currently in the preliminary discussions to snag the rights to the recently spotlighted comic book series Avengelyne. This move could see the heavenly saga brought to life under the directorial gaze of Olivia Wilde, known for her captivating work on Don’t Worry Darling.

The film is expected to be a style spectacle, with none other than Margot Robbie potentially leading the charge. Robbie, fresh from her iconic role in Barbie, along with her LuckyChap partners Tom Ackerley and Josey McNamara, is set to produce. Their collaboration with Warner Bros. comes naturally, thanks to a strategic first-look deal, positioning the studio as a prime candidate for such an electrifying package. Adding to the creative ensemble is Tony McNamara (Poor Things), who will be lending his screenwriting prowess to the script, and Simon Kinberg, a veteran producer known for his work on the X-Men series.

Avengelyne itself debuted in 1995 and presents a riveting narrative centered around a fallen angel tasked with a monumental mission on Earth—to find and protect “The One,” a pivotal figure in humanity’s battle against demons and otherworldly threats. The comic was a brainchild of creators Rob Liefeld, Cathy Christian, and Tony Lobito, with Liefeld also gearing up for the release of Deadpool & Wolverine this July from Marvel Studios.

This potential adaptation is just one of several projects derived from Liefeld’s creations that have caught Hollywood’s eye, marking a continuing trend of comic book to silver screen transformations. Although the Prophet project, previously connected to Sam Hargrave and Jake Gyllenhaal, has seen some setbacks, the buzz around Avengelyne suggests a promising blend of high stakes and high style.

As Warner Bros. continues to expand its cinematic horizons—recently securing Ryan Coogler’s latest project in a fiercely competitive bid—the addition of Avengelyne could further enhance their portfolio with a mix of divine intervention and blockbuster charm, all wrapped in the inimitable style of Margot Robbie and Olivia Wilde’s visionary aesthetics. Margot Robbie is also working on the Monopoly movie (announced at CinemaCon), which is in the works at Lionsgate.
