The Spider-Man “Spin”-off film “Madame Web” is getting ready to start production in Boston, MA in July of 2022. But don’t let Cassandra Webb AKA Madame Web’s name fool you. She is not a web swinger like your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. According to comic lore, Cassandra Webb, who suffered from a lifetime of blindness and many years of neurological deterioration due to myasthenia gravis. She compensated for her ailment with her profound psychic abilities, establishing herself as a medium.
Using these powers, Madame Web discovered Peter Parker’s secret identity when Spider-Man rescued one of her students who had been kidnapped during a scam at the Daily Globe newspaper. Later, Madame Web helped Spider-Man prevent an assassination attempt against a political candidate. When supervillain Black Tom Cassidy sent the Juggernaut to kidnap Web so he could use her powers for his criminal activities, she foresaw the attack and called Spider-Man for help. He could not stop the Juggernaut, who left Madame Web in a state of severe shock after he unknowingly removed her from her chair, which provided her vital life functions.
“Madame Web” is expected to hit theaters with a scheduled July 7, 2023 release date.
“Madame Web” Cast and Crew
Dakota Johnson has been tapped for the lead role of Madame Web. The “Fifty Shades of Grey” actress has remained silent about being cast in the role, with the exception of her low-key posting of a web on her Instagram story to confirm her participation in the Marvel movie. Euphoria star Sydney Sweeney will be joining Johnson, but her role has yet to be confirmed.
Marvel has hired three writers to create the script for “Madame Web”: Matt Sazama, Burk Sharpless, and Kerem Sanga. The choice of writers is somewhat strange, as Sanga has no prior experience writing for the MCU, and Sazama and Sharpless have only the 2022 Marvel movie “Morbius” to their names, but it was a critical failure. In spite of that, it seems that Marvel is willing to let these writers play in Marvel’s sandbox one more time.
