MADAME WEB Movie In The Works From MORBIUS Writers; Could A Live-Action SPIDER-VERSE Be On The Way?

In a very unexpected development, it appears that Sony has tasked Morbius writers Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless to pen the script for a Madame Web movie set in the burgeoning Spider-Man film universe.

It appears as though Sony Pictures is moving forward with expanding their Spider-Man film universe in new and unique ways, as Collider is now reporting that the studio has enlisted Morbius scribes Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless to pen a Madame Web film set in this burgeoning live-action Spider-Verse.

While the potential project is still in its scripting stage, the introduction of a character like Cassandra Webb, a.k.a. Madame Web, who possesses a wide variety of psychic abilities including telepathy, clairvoyance and prescience; may inadvertantly reveal where Sony hopes to head next with their Spider-Verse - especially considering that one of the character's more popular and well-known appearances was in Spider-Man: The Animated Series, where she brought together multiple Spider-Men from alternate realities and sent them on a mission to save the multiverse. 

With Spidey (Tom Holland) currently out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it's not exactly a secret that Sony is working on creating a live-action multiverse of their own and with the immense popularity of the Spider-Verse, their best bet may be to bring every Spider they have in their arsenal to the big-screen, including ones previously played by Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, if possible. 

Another possibility, if the studio were to go in a vastly different direction with this movie, would be to bypass the original Cassandra Webb version of Madame Web and instead shift the focus to Julia Carpenter, who was the second character to adopt the Madame Web mantle after serving spells as the second Spider-Woman and the second Arachne. This version was also seen in Ultimate Spider-Man vs. Sinister 6.

As for the rest of the Spider-Verse, the upcoming slate has already been confirmed to feature Morbius, with Daniel Espinosa (Life) directing and Jared Leto (Blade Runner 2049) starring, and Venom 2, with Andy Serkis (Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle) directing and Tom Hardy (Venom) returning to star.

Sequels to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, with Joaquim Dos Santos directing and David Callaham writing the script, and Spider-Man: Far From Home, with Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers penning the script, are also in the works as is a female-centered animated Spider-Verse spinoff, with Lauren Montgomery expected to direct and Bek Smith writing the screenplay. Films involving Kraven the Hunter, Black Cat and Silver Sable are also rumored to be in various stages of development.
