Madame Web hits theaters on February 14, 2024 as the next installment in Sony’s Spider-Man Universe. The film is the first Marvel movie to debut this year.
Madame Web tells the standalone origin story of one of Marvel publishing’s most enigmatic heroines, who made her debut in The Amazing Spider-Man #210. The suspense-driven thriller stars Dakota Johnson as Cassandra Webb, a paramedic in Manhattan who develops the power to see the future… and realizes she can use that insight to change it. Forced to confront revelations about her past, she forges a relationship with three young women bound for powerful destinies… if they can all survive a deadly present.
The film was directed by S.J. Clarkson, who co-wrote the screenplay with Claire Parker, Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, from a story by Kerem Sanga, Sazama, and Sharpless. Madame Web is the fourth film in the SSU following Venom, Venom: Let There Be Carnage and Morbius.
Madame Web stars Johnson as the titular character, alongside Sydney Sweeney as Julia Cornwall / Spider-Woman, Celeste O’Connor as Mattie Franklin / Spider-Woman, Isabela Merced as Anya Corazon / Araña, and Tahar Rahim as Ezekiel Sims. Additionally, Mike Epps, Emma Roberts, Adam Scott, and Zosia Mamet have been cast in undisclosed roles.
According to Box Office Pro, Madame Web is tracking to open domestically with $25-35 million in its opening weekend. The projected opening weekend would break a major negative record for Sony’s Spider-Man movies, making it the lowest-grossing Sony Spider-Man film debut.
