“Fifty Shades of Grey” star Dakota Johnson has officially joined Sony's Spider-Man universe as Madame Web, who has psychic abilities.
Johnson will be playing this titular role in Madame Web's standalone movie set in the same universe as Venom, Morbius, and Kraven. She has also become the first female superhero in Sony Pictures’ Universe Of Marvel Characters among the rumors of other female-led projects that include Black Cat and Spider-Gwen.
Netflix Jessica Jones and The Defenders director S.J. Clarkson is on board to direct “Madame Web” from a script written by the upcoming Marvel movie Morbius writers Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless.
Cassandra Webb, often known as Madame Web, grew up in Salem, Oregon. She was born blind and suffering from myasthenia gravis, a neurological condition. However, this had an unintended consequence: she developed strong psychic talents and used them to become a medium.
In Spider-Man comics, Debra Whitman gave Peter Parker Madame Web's ad, and he dismissed her as a fraud. During an attack on the Daily Globe, however, Peter as Spider-Man discovered a clue that only Madame Web could help with. He went to see her, and she utilized her talents to assist him in locating the culprits. When she came to Peter's apartment and revealed that she knew he was Spider-Man, he immediately began to believe in her abilities.
Along with Spider-Man, Madame Web has a connection with many superheroes in Marvel Comics, which include Jessica Jones, Spider-Women, Juggernaut, Kraven, and more. She possesses psychic abilities including telepathy, clairvoyance, and prescience. She can also perpetrate astral projection and appear to others in spirit form.
Sony and Marvel Studios' last release Spider-Man: No Way Home has broken many box office records by earning more than $1.7 billion worldwide. Sony's Venom: Let there be Carnage also made more than $500 million during the pandemic, which led the studio to confirm Venom 3. Sony’s upcoming Marvel Project, Morbius is set to hit the theaters on April 1, 2022.
