Emma Roberts joins the cast of Spider-Man spinoff Madame Web

Emma Roberts has joined the cast of Madame Web, the Sony spinoff movie centered on a character in Spider-Man’s world.

Madame Web is believed to be an origin story for one of Spider-Man’s mentors who, at least in the comics and in the cartoon, never actively fights anyone herself. Throughout her depictions, she’s shown as an elderly woman suffering from myasthenia gravis, leaving her hooked up to a “web” of life support machines. However, her years of experience and clairvoyant abilities were a boon to Spider-Man. For this reason, the film is expected to make some adjustments for a more entertaining story, either showing her beginnings or changing the character altogether.

The actor is joining a star-studded ensemble, which includes Dakota Johnson as the title hero and “Euphoria” breakout Sydney Sweeney in an undisclosed role. As previously announced, Celeste O’Connor (“Ghostbusters: Afterlife”), Isabela Merced (“Dora and the Lost City of Gold”) and Tahar Rahim (“The Mauritanian”) are rounding out the call sheet.

Details about Madame Web are relatively limited, with a previous report claiming the film “will be an origin story of the clairvoyant, whose psychic abilities allow her to see within the spider world.”

Other spinoffs from the Spider-Man franchise include two Venom films and this year’s Morbius. Aaron Taylor-Johnson will star in the upcoming spinoff Kraven the Hunter, so as the roster of stars joining Spider-Man spinoffs grows, fans wonder what that could mean for the series’ future.
