While not much is known about Madame Web, the upcoming Marvel movie centers around a clairvoyant older woman who becomes one of Peter Parker/Spider-Man’s closest adversaries as she helps him discover which actions could lead to the worst results.

Dakota Fanning, Sydney Sweeney, Emma Roberts, Celeste O’Connor, Isabela Merced, Tahar Rahim, and Adam Scott star in the film in unknown roles.

Though Madame Web — who gets her name due to Cassandra Webb being suspended in a permanently attached web — has incredibly close ties with Spider-Man in the Marvel comics, Sony Pictures continues to detach all of their recent motion pictures from anything related to the web-slinger. Recent reports suggest that Madame Web has virtually nothing to do with their Spider-Man, continuing the cutting of all ties from Andrew Garfield’s iconic character.

Following the footsteps of Tom Hardy’s Venom franchise, Morbius (2022), Sony’s upcoming Kraven the Hunter (2023) and El Muerto (2023) Madame Web will act as a solo film — the first female-led Marvel movie — within Sony’s Marvel Universe.

The Marvel Universe is becoming much more than iconic characters/Earth’s Mightiest Heroes like Star-Lord/Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Hawkeye/Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner), Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson), Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), and Thanos (Josh Brolin).

Tom Holland’s Avenger is leading the way for Marvel Cinematic Universe newcomers Kate BishopMs. Marvel/Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani), Moon Knight (Oscar Isaac), Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn), She-Hulk (Tatiana Maslany), Eternals’ Thena (Angelina Jolie), and more — especially with his next Spider-Man trilogy that’s currently in the works.
