First Female Superhero in Spider-Verse; Dwayne Johnson as ‘Madame Web’
Hollywood star Dakota Johnson appears to be playing the character of ‘Madam Web,’ in this new film. Finally, her arrival as a superhero has been verified.
It’s great that these projects are coming from Sony Pictures, which is planning a slew of other Spider-Man-related projects. It’s being referred to as the Sony Marvel Universe.
It has been reported by The Hollywood Reporter that Dakota Johnson is now in discussions with the production team about the project.
SJ Clarkson will direct the film. Burk Sharpless and Matt Sajama wrote the script. If everything goes according to plan, Dakota will become the first female superhero in the Sony Spider Verse.
Actress Dakota Johnson Has Been Cast in the Role of “Madame Web”
For the most part, Madame Web is a mutant who can prophesy the future of Spider-Man-themed heroes. Peter Parker and a slew of other multi-generational heroes serve as advisors to the film.
According to Deadline, Dakota Johnson’s character may appear like Sony’s version of Doctor Strange. Her most common character in Marvel Comics, on the other hand, is that of an elderly woman suffering from myasthenia gravis.
This led to her being placed on life support, which looked exactly like the “Spider Web” system. It’s unlikely she’s ever faced a villain like an elderly woman with myasthenia gravis.
Dakota Johnson was originally shown as an elderly woman with Myasthenia Gravis, according to an update. As a result, she had a functioning life support system that resembled a web of spiders.
Because of her advanced age and a variety of health issues, she no longer actively pursued the position of villain. As a result, the actress relied on her psychic abilities to make sense of what she was seeing.
The above-mentioned character first appeared in the 1980s. It was created in the ‘The Amazing Spider-Man No. 210’ comics of the 1980s, specifically page 210 of that issue.
Now that Sony has taken over as the only network airing Sony Universe of Marvel Characters, the competition is dwindling. It has recently released a number of films, most notably ‘Let There Be Carnage (2020).
Sharpless and Sajama have also written the script for the film ‘Mobius.’ In April, the film will be released in theatres around the world. Beyond that, Sony is currently in talks with ‘Craven the Hunter’ star Aaron Taylor-Johnson about the project as a whole.
Dakota Johnson last appeared in Maggie Gyllenhaal’s film ‘The Lost Daughter,’ which was directed by the actress.
