We know that following the success of Spider-Man: No Way Home (which spent $1.7 billion in revenue worldwide!), Sony is considering direct sequels (a new trilogy is being talked about, even if Tom Holland hasn’t confirmed anything yet). The studio also plans to continue its spin-offs. After Venom and Morbius, Deadline thus announces the start of construction of Madame Web, the first blockbuster in the saga to be dedicated to a heroine. It is also the screenwriters behind the vampire film with Jared Leto who have been hired to write this new adaptation, Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless. On the staging side, it’s SJ Clarkson, known for having directed several episodes of Jessica Jones, Netflix’s Marvel series, which has been hired. And to interpret this heroine little known to the general public, Amy Pascal would like to hire the ex-star of Fifty Shades of grey, dakota johnson. But there is a twist…

The article clarifies that while Dakota Johnson is indeed in talks for this role of Madame Web, she has not signed anything yet, and that if she does, the character is likely to be very different from that portrayed in the comics in the comics. 1980s.

It looks like a spider’s web. Due to her age and poor health, Madame Web has never actively fought against villains. For this reason, sources familiar with the matter assume that this project will offer something else. They also specify that thanks to her psychic powers, she is essentially Sony’s Doctor Strange.”
