When is the Madam Web release date? It’s been a long time coming, but a Madame Web movie is finally on the way. Just when you thought the Spider-Verse was crowded enough…
No, it isn’t set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (the film is made by Sony) but in the era of multiverses, that isn’t enough anymore. As the lines between these various cinematic universes become more and more crossed, we’re updating our Marvel movies in order every week to keep up. But what do we know about Madame Web? Well, that’s an excellent question, and don’t worry, we’ve scoured the web (pun unintended) to bring you everything we know about the upcoming Marvel movie.
What’s the Madame Web release date?
Madame Web will be released on February 14, 2024. What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day?
The action movie was originally set for a July 2023 release date, then moved to October 2023, before changing again. Hopefully, this new date will stick like a spider’s web.
Who’s in the Madame Web cast?
The Madam Web cast will be fronted by Dakota Johnson, who’s set to play the titular hero, and Sydney Sweeney as Julia Carpenter (aka: Spider-Woman).
Madame Web is a clairvoyant mutant. In the comics, she’s blind and paralyzed, but the new movie seems to ditch that for now and instead presents Dakota Johnson’s Madame Web as a paramedic who can see into the future. Sydney Sweeney, in the meantime, is paying Julia Carpenter, a version of Spider-Woman.
Adam Scott is playing Ben Parker — the man killed off more times than anyone deserves. So, you know…good luck to him.
Here’s the Madame Web confirmed cast:
- Dakota Johnson as Cassandra Webb/Madame Web
- Sydney Sweeney as Julia Carpenter/Spider-Woman
- Emma Roberts as Mary Parker
- Adam Scott as Ben Parker
- Isabela Merced as Anya Corazon
- Celeste O’Connor as Mattie Franklin
- Zosia Mamet in an unspecified role
- Tahar Rahim in as Ezekiel Sims
What is Madame Web about?
Madame Web “will be an origin story of the clairvoyant, whose psychic abilities allow her to see within the spider world.”
Madame Web first appeared in Issue #210 of The Amazing Spider-Man comic book series in 1980. An elderly mutant with blindness and an autoimmune disease, Cassandra Webb carried the mantle of Madame Web up until 2010.
This take is quite a bit different, since it follows Cassandra, who’s a young paramedic. After a near-death experience, she develops psychic powers and starts to see into the future.
With this power comes the knowledge that a figure from her family’s past is seemingly on the hunt for a group of young girls. The connection between Cassandra and the girls is tangled, and we already can’t wait to see more.
So, the movie will deviate from the comics entirely by exploring a younger Cassandra Webb. Because Madame Web is meant to be a mutant, it is also an opportunity for Sony to try and implement a little bit of X-Men in their own cinematic universe (if they can find a way to do it without Disney suing them).
Does Madame Web have a trailer?
The first trailer for Madame Web dropped on November 15, 2023, and gave us plenty of Spidey fare.
The trailer gives a look at Cassandra and her life as a paramedic, before we get a glimpse of the accident that changed her life and caused her to gain her powers.
There’s also an introduction to Adam Scott’s Ben Parker, and we meet the group of teenage girls, including Julia Carpenter, who Cassandra now must protect. Watch the trailer for yourself below:
