Synopsis: “Meanwhile, in another universe…” In a switch from the typical genre, Madame Web tells the standalone origin story of one of Marvel publishing’s most enigmatic heroines. The suspense-driven thriller stars Dakota Johnson as Cassandra Webb, a paramedic in Manhattan who may have clairvoyant abilities. Forced to confront revelations about her past, she forges a relationship with three young women destined for powerful futures…if they can all survive a deadly present.
UPDATE: Sony Pictures is set to release Madame Web in theaters on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2024.
Starring alongside Dakota Johnson are Sydney Sweeney (Euphoria), Isabella Merced (Dora and the Lost City of Gold), Caleste O’Connor (Ghostbusters: Afterlife) and Emma Roberts (American Horror Story).
Sony Pictures has found its leading lady in Dakota Johnson (Fifty Shades of Grey) for the Spider-Man spinoff Madame Web.
S.J. Clarkson (The Defenders) is set to direct the film from a screenplay by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless.
For those unfamiliar with the character, Madame Web is an elderly woman with myasthenia gravis and thus was connected to a life support system that looked like a spider web. Due to her psychic sensory powers, reports says she may essentially be Sony’s version of Doctor Strange.
