Madame Web is the fifth film adaptation in Sony’s Spider-Man Universe. The plot details are kept under wraps, and the film is directed by S.J. Clarkson from the script written by Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama.
In the comics, Madame Web is depicted as an elderly woman with myasthenia gravis and thus was connected to a life-support system that looked like a spider web. Madame Web is a mutant who possesses psychic sensory powers including telepathy, clairvoyance, prescience, and the ability to sense the presence of psionic powers in others. She can also perform psychic surgery and appear to others in spirit (astral) form. She has a gifted intellect.
Emma Roberts is known for her roles in the FX anthology horror series American Horror Story (2013–present) and for the lead role of Chanel Oberlin on the Fox comedy horror series Scream Queens (2015–2016). Madame Web will mark her first superhero debut.
‘Madame Web’ release date is slated for July 7, 2023.
