Secret Marvel Movie In the Works at Sony Pictures. According to an exclusive report from Variety, Sony Pictures is working on a new Marvel Film and has tapped S.J. Clarkson to direct. Sony has yet to comment on the scoop, but signs point heavily to Sony’s interest in developing a Madame Web led film, potentially starring Charlize Theron or Amy Adams, whom are reported to be the top interests for the lead role of Cassandra Webb/Madame Web.
The character is unlike any we have seen in Marvel movies and is frequently characterized along with her chair connected to vital life functioning tubes that take the form of a spiderweb due to her life long battle with Myasthenia Gravis. Myasthenia Gravis is a neuromuscular disorder that causes weakness in the skeletal muscles, which are the muscles your body uses for movement. It occurs when communication between nerve cells and muscles becomes impaired.
In a synopsis of the character, Marvel shares, “Though Cassandra Webb suffered from a lifetime of blindness and many years of neurological deterioration due to Myasthenia Gravis, she compensated with her profound psychic abilities, establishing herself as a medium.”
Other than Clarkson, no other production team members, such as producers, writers, etc., have been announced at this time and it was confirmed by Variety that even the potential stars for the film have yet to meet with the Studio at the time of writing.
Should Sony decide to bring Madame Web into the Spider-Man film franchise it is unknown if the character would be considered canon with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, despite possibly appearing with Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man/Peter Parker.
