Sony’s Spider-Verse is expanding by adding Madame Webb to its cinematic universe. While Sony’s efforts to create a Spider-Man character-driven cinematic universe have been met with mixed reactions, the Tom Holland Spider-Man movies linked to the MCU have been well-received. The latest installment, No Way Home, set to release in 2021, is expected to be a hit. The success of Tom Hardy’s Venom movie in 2018, especially in China, laid the foundation for Sony’s universe. Despite the pandemic, 2021’s Venom: Let There Be Carnage continued the momentum. However, Jared Leto’s Morbius could have been more successful. Sony is determined to keep expanding its universe. She has a new Kraven, the Hunter movie with Aaron Taylor Johnson coming out this year, and Venom 3 and El Muerto in development. Madame Web will be a refreshing addition to Sony’s Spider-Man movies as she is not a villain. In the comics, she is a mutant with telepathic and future-predicting abilities bound to a spider-web-like chair due to her health problems. Fans are excited about the talented cast, including Dakota Johnson and Sydney Sweeney in lead roles. Here’s what we know so far about this upcoming Spider-Verse movie.

When is The Madame Web Release Date?
The release date for Madame Web was initially set for July 7, 2023, but Sony has pushed it back twice. The latest scheduled release date is February 16, 2024, which coincides with Valentine’s weekend – a prosperous time for comic book movies in the past. With a strong cast, This film can be a great option for a girls’ night out.
Is There a Trailer for Madame Web?
Madame Web isn’t coming out for a while, and Sony hasn’t even started promoting it yet. There’s no official trailer out yet, either. So far, we have only seen set photos that got out while the movie was made in New York City. The photos show us the movie’s main cast, including Dakota Johnson in what looks like her Madame Web costume. In the comics, Julia Carpenter wears the same costume. The set photos also show that the movie occurred in the early 2000s. In the background, you can see billboards for the 3G network and Beyoncé’s first album.
Who is the Director of Madame Web?
British director S.J. Clarkson, who has worked on many popular T.V. shows like Succession, Jessica Jones, Heroes, House, and Dexter, will be in charge of the film, which will be her first time directing a full-length movie. The movie’s script was written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, who also wrote Morbius. Karem Sanga (First Girl I Loved) wrote the first draft. Leigh Folsom Boyd, the editor of No Way Home, and Mauro Fiore, a cinematographer, are also working on Madame Web. Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Bumblebee) is in charge of making the movie. Adam Merims (King Richard) is the film’s Executive Producer, and Palak Patel (The Gray Man) is responsible for the film’s development.
What’s the Plot of Madame Web?
Much of the plot of Madame Web is still a secret, but producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura has given us some information. In an interview with ComicBook.com, di Bonaventura said that the movie would use the character’s mysterious past in the comics to tell a new story about how she became who she is. In Marvel Comics, the first Madam Web is a woman from Salem, Oregon, named Cassandra Webb. She was born blind with a disease called myasthenia gravis, which made her very weak but also helped her develop psychic and clairvoyant abilities. In the comics, she is known for being close to Jessica Drew and Julia Carpenter, both Spider-Women. She often helps them out with her powers. What di Bonaventura said is as follows:
“So, in that respect, if you’re a Spider-Man fan, you’re gonna love the character because you know it from the comic books, which she doesn’t really have that big a character in the comic books, we’re doing the origin story of Madame Web. And so you meet her before she’s actually the person that you know in the comic book, and you come to understand how she becomes that person. So, I think that’ll be a fresh new terrain for the fans.”
From the set photos that have been leaked, it looks like Dakota Johnson is wearing Julia Carpenter’s classic Madame Web costume. After Cassandra died, Julia Carpenter took over the role of Madame Web and the psychic powers that came with it. This change will also make sense since Dakota Johnson is still in her 30s, and the original Madame Web is usually a very old woman in the comics. But some rumors also say that Julia Carpenter will be played in the movie by Sydney Sweeney. Based on what Di Bonaventura noted, Johnson may play Cassandra as a younger version of the older, more powerful psychic we know from the comics. We can only wait to see how the writers weave the plot lines together.
Will Madame Web Be Released in Theaters or on Streaming?
Sony is one of the few studios that doesn’t have a streaming service. Thanks to a deal made in early 2021, their movies usually go to Netflix after their time in theaters and on digital platforms, so Madame Web will also go there at an undetermined time later next year.
When and Where Was Madame Web Filmed?
The main filming for Madame Web began on July 11, 2022, and was done for good in January 2023. The movie was shot in Chinatown and Grand Central Station in New York City and Boston, Massachusetts.
Who will play Madame Web in MCU?
Dakota Johnson will play Madame Web in the upcoming superhero film, while Isabela Merced and Celeste O’Connor have been cast as Anya Corazon and Mattie Franklin. I am excited to reunite with my previous co-stars, Dakota, Isabela, and Celeste, as we work together again.
Is Madame Web a hero or Villain?
Madame Web is a fictional hero featured in Marvel Comics. The initial version of the character, Cassandra Webb, utilized her powers to assist Spider-Man in rescuing a kidnap victim while also reminding Peter of his identity as Spider-Man when he was uncertain.
What is Madame Web’s Weakness?
Fans were surprised when Johnson was chosen to play Madame Web since the character is usually an older woman with myasthenia gravis, a disease that weakens bones and muscles.
