Sony Pictures has just released the official trailer for the upcoming film “Madame Web”, the Spider-Man spinoff which stars Dakota Johnson as the title character, along with Sydney Sweeney playing Julia Carpenter/Spider-Woman.
Although it is described as a standalone origin film, it is connected to the Spider-Man cinematic universe. Here, Johnson plays Cassandra Webb, a paramedic in Manhattan and clairvoyant with psychic abilities that let her tap into the spider world.
S. J. Clarkson helms “Madame Web”, which is Sony’s first female-led Marvel movie. Also in the film are Celeste O’Connor, Isabela Merced, Tahar Rahim, Mike Epps, Emma Roberts, and Adam Scott.
Here’s the film’s official synopsis:
“Meanwhile, in another universe…” In a switch from the typical genre, Madame Web tells the standalone origin story of one of Marvel publishing’s most enigmatic heroines. The suspense-driven thriller stars Dakota Johnson as Cassandra Webb, a paramedic in Manhattan who may have clairvoyant abilities. Forced to confront revelations about her past, she forges a relationship with three young women destined for powerful futures…if they can all survive a deadly present.
“Madame Web” is set for release on February 14, 2024.
