The release date of Sony’s Madame Web movie is being delayed. The movie is now set to premiere in theaters on October 6, 2023.
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.
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.
