Madame Web: Dakota Johnson reportedly in talks to join Sony’s Spider-Man universe


Dakota Johnson may soon be gearing up for her first superhero role as she’s in talks to play Madame Web in Sony’s upcoming Spider-Man spin-off.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 32-year-old actor could play the titular character in Madame Web, Sony’s spin-off centered around the Spider-Man character. SJ Clarkson is set to direct the feature, which is part of Sony’s growing lineup of films based on Marvel characters.

The film centers on Madame Web, a mutant with psychic sensory powers allowing her to predict the future of other superheroes in the universe.

Web will be the first female superhero in Sony’s Spider-Man universe.

In the comics, Web is a blind elderly woman who suffers from myasthenia gravis, an autoimmune disease that requires her to use a life support system. She guides others rather than risking her own life in conflict.

Clarkson, writer and director of Jessica Jones and The Defenders, is set to helm the project with Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless penning the screenplay.

Sony is developing the film following the success of Spider-Man: No Way Home.

In addition to Madame Web, Sony is expanding the Spider-Verse to include films featuring Venom, Morbius, and Kraven. Madame Web would also mark Johnson’s first major franchise since Fifty Shades of Grey.

Most recently, Johnson starred in the critically acclaimed film The Lost Daughter and Sundance Film Festival Audience Award winner Cha Cha Real Smooth.
