The “Madame Web” comics center around a precognitive mutant and clairvoyant named Cassandra Webb. The film will dive into the backstory of the now-elderly Webb, connected to a life support system that takes the shape of a spider’s web, and how she came to develop the psychic abilities that grant her access to the spider world.

In joining “Morbius” and “Venom,” “Madame Web” becomes the Sony Pictures Marvel Universe’s first franchise led by a female character. Before the film hits theaters next fall, the studio will release “Kraven the Hunter” starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson in January 2023. The Bad Bunny–starring “El Muerto” is set for January of the following year.
