The role of Madame Web in Sony ‘s film of the same name directed by SJ Clarkson ( Anatomy of a Scandal, Succession ).

Sony executives have met with major actresses for the lead role and in the past couple of months, the list has been narrowed down. Johnson gained front-runner status right before the holidays.

In the comics and possible adaptation

Created by writer Denny O’Neil and artist John Romita Jr. , She first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man # 210.

In the comics, Madame Web is usually portrayed as a supporting character, appearing as an old woman suffering from myasthenia gravis, a neuromuscular disease characterized by muscle weakness. For this reason it is connected to a life support system that resembles a spider’s web.

Due to her age and medical condition, Madame Web has never actively fought any villains.

For this reason, the sources pointed out that it is possible for the project to turn into something else.

The screenplay is the work of Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless .
