According to insiders who spoke to Deadline, Dakota Johnson is in talks to feature in the studio’s upcoming Madame Web film. This comes after the huge success of Spider-Man: No Way Home and Sony is aiming to grow their world of Marvel characters. S.J. Clarkson has agreed to helm the film. The screenplay was written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, with Kerem Sanga also contributing to an earlier draught.
According to the comics, Madame Web was an elderly person with myasthenia gravis who was attached to a life support system that resembled a spider web. Madame Web never actively pursued any villains because of her advanced age and health issues. According to insiders, she is essentially Sony’s Doctor Strange because of her psychic sensory abilities. In any case, the studio execs have always made getting a female-driven property in Sony’s Marvel universe a major priority given the abundance of strong female characters who have appeared in these comics over the years. Sony executives have spoken with several A-list actors as they deliberated about who would play the titular role. The list has been narrowed down over the past two months, with Johnson moving into the lead just before Christmas.
In recent weeks, Boston and the surrounding areas have been busy with filming for Sony’s Spider-Verse film, Madame Web. Photographers and other spectators have spotted Dakota Johnson and Adam Scott filming, and a few fascinating actresses have joined the cast. The casting of Emma Roberts and Sydney Sweeney, as well as other members of the Madame Webcast, including actress Dakota Johnson, led to intense speculation about the characters they would be playing in the movie. Which Madame Web is she portraying?
In Madame Web, who is who
Although Dakota Johnson is playing Madame Web, it hasn’t been made entirely clear which Madame Web she is playing. People assumed that Johnson must be Julia Carpenter based on early set images of her wearing a red jacket, but it turns out that she is simply borrowing that look. Julia may subsequently adopt Cassandra’s appearance.
Celeste O’Connor, who is portraying Mattie Franklin, comes next. Although Mike Epps’ part in the movie is unknown, it would not be shocking if he played Mattie’s father Jerry Franklin. Since Julia Carpenter and Mattie have both previously used the aliases Spider-Woman and Madame Web, it is also currently unknown what superhero names some of these characters may employ.
Yes, Isabela Merced is playing Anya Corazon, a.k.a. Spider-Girl, as has already been surmised. It was revealed exclusively by Fandomwire in July that a live-action project starring Anya Corazon as Spider-Girl was in development. Yes. Yes, Adam Scott will be playing Uncle Ben. It’s wonderful to have such a talented actor join the cast of real-life Uncle Ben. But of course, the fact that Uncle Ben is a young man and that it’s not obvious whether his devoted wife May is even present means that this movie, or at least a portion of it, is unquestionably set very early in the Spider-Verse.
Plot of Madame Web
Cassandra Webb overcame her myasthenia gravis-related blindness for her whole life and years of neurological degeneration by using her extraordinary psychic powers to establish herself as a medium. When Spider-Man saved one of her students who had been abducted during a scam at the Daily Globe newspaper, Madame Web used these abilities to learn Peter Parker’s true identity. Later, Madame Web assisted Spider-Man in thwarting a political candidate’s assassination attempt. We anticipated the attack and phoned Spider-Man for assistance when Black Tom Cassidy sent the Juggernaut to abduct her so he could use her abilities for his criminal enterprises. He could not stop the Juggernaut from leaving Madame Web.
She had short-term memory loss from the coma and seemed to have forgotten who Spider-Man was for a moment. She sought his assistance once more after seeing her own death coming through her precognitive abilities. She begged Spider-Man to find one of the five necessary artifact fragments, believing that if she joined Norman Osborn in the esoteric rite known as the Gathering of the Five, it would save her life. The five contestants would each gain one of the following: knowledge, power, immortality, madness, or death. Spider-Man was successful, and Madame Web appears to have died during the ceremony. She actually gained immortality and discovered that she was much younger and healthier than before.
