Following the great success of “Spider-Man: No Way Home”, Sony is keen to expand its universe, which already includes Venom (2018), Venom: Let There Be Carnage (2021), and Morbius, starring Jared Leto in the titular role. The upcoming Kraven the Hunter film, starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, is also in the works at Sony. Besides Kraven, a Spider-Man spin-off, El Muerto, starring Bad Bunny, was also announced. All of this points to a new entry in the Sony Universe of Marvel Characters.

The Origin of Madame Web

Madame Web, a.k.a. “Cassandra Webb”, was originally depicted as an elderly lady with vast knowledge of the spider-verse, which connects variants of Spider-Man across the multiverse. She initially debuted in The Amazing Spider-Man #210 as an ally who assisted Spider-Man in locating a kidnapped victim. Her powers include telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, and gifted intellect. She has the ability to astral project just like Doctor Strange.

Cassandra is cybernetically linked to a life support system resembling a spider web, which stands to benefit her body. The system also includes a robotic arm, which was designed by her husband. Although the original Madame Web was quite old, when she died in the comics, she passed her abilities to Julia Carpenter, who was the second Spider-Woman and then became the second Madame Web, debuting in “Secret Wars #6”.

So, it would be rather suitable if the original Madame Web passes her authority on to the younger version of Madame Web, which will be played by Dakota Johnson.

Adam recently earned critical acclaim for his Apple TV+ series “Severance”, which received 14 Emmy nominations. In addition, the Hollywood star scored a nomination for best actor.
