Sony’s upcoming Marvel movie, Madame Web, starring Dakota Johnson, has had its release date moved up slightly on the release calendar. The film, centered around the Spider-Man character of the same name, was originally set to release on February 16, 2024, but has now been moved to February 14, 2024.
The delays and release date change for Madame Web were outlined by The Hollywood Reporter. Alongside the announcement, the star-studded cast was also revealed. Dakota Johnson leads the film as Madame Web, with Sydney Sweeney, Celeste O’Connor, Isabela Merced, and Emma Roberts joining her. The cast also includes Tahar Rahim, Mike Epps, and Adam Scott.
Madame Web, created by writer Denny O’Neil and artist John Romita Jr. in 1980, is a blind psychic character who has gained prominence in the Spider-Man universe due to her connection to “The Great Web,” a multiversal link that ties all “Spider” characters together across different dimensions.
The film is helmed by S.J. Clarkson, known for her work on Jessica Jones, and the screenplay is written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, who previously worked on the screenplay for Morbius.
Madame Web’s character has appeared in various Spider-Man comic books and adaptations over the years, but this film will mark her first solo outing on the big screen. Fans of the Marvel franchise are excited to see how the character’s unique psychic abilities and connection to the multiverse will be portrayed.
The slight release date change indicates that the film is progressing smoothly in its production and is on track for its scheduled release. Moving the release date up by two days shows Sony’s confidence in the project and their desire to meet audience demand.
With a star-studded cast, an intriguing character, and a talented director and screenwriting team behind it, Madame Web is shaping up to be an exciting addition to the Marvel cinematic universe. Fans can look forward to seeing Dakota Johnson bring the enigmatic and captivating Madame Web to life on the silver screen in February 2024.
