Sony’s Next Spider-Man Universe Movie Madame Web now has a release date as it is slated for a theatrical release in 2023.
Madame Web Release Date
Sony Pictures announced that Madame Web will be released on July 7, 2023. That is one month after the new release date of Spider-Man: Through the Spider-Verse (Part One), so Sony is betting on a busy summer season next year.
The film is expected to star Dakota Johnson as the title character alongside Sydney Sweeney in a role that has yet to be revealed.
Although not the most common Spider-Man character, Madame Web first appeared in the pages of The Amazing Spider-Man #210 in 1980 by writer Denny O’Neil and artist John Romita Jr. The character is a blind psychic who has become a major player in the world of Spider-Man due to his ties to “The Great Web”, a multiversal construct that connects all “Spider” characters across the multiverse.
See how Spider-Man: No Coming Home introduced the concept of the multiverse, we could see this continue in the movie Madame Web.
It has also been confirmed that SJ Clarkson will direct the film. Clarkson is no stranger to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Clarkson has worked on both Jessica Jones and The Defenders for Netflix. The screenplay will be written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, who wrote Morbius with Jared Leto.
