Madame Web Trailer Brings Us Sony’s First Female-Led Super Team
Sony Pictures has just unveiled the Madame Web trailer. Despite its connection to the Spider-Man universe, Madame Web is described as a standalone origin story. The story revolves around Cassandra Webb, better known as Madame Web, a mutant endowed with extraordinary clairvoyant abilities.
Directed by S.J. Clarkson, known for her work on Jessica Jones based on a script written by Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama, Madame Web marks Sony’s first female-led Marvel film. The lead role is portrayed by Dakota Johnson, while Sydney Sweeney brings the character of Julia Carpenter, also known as Spider-Woman, to life. The cast also boasts Celeste O’Connor, Isabela Merced, Tahar Rahim, Mike Epps, Emma Roberts, and Adam Scott, among others.
The trailer unveils a thrilling four-women team-up, giving audiences a taste of the strong bonds that will develop throughout the story. Additionally, it introduces the formidable villain, Ezekiel “Zeke” Sims, portrayed by Rahim, who possesses Spider-Man-like powers himself. One captivating scene hints at Madame Web’s clairvoyant abilities, as she revisits and reimagines a fight after foreseeing her initial defeat.
Although this film won’t give us a classic look at Madame Web, the character is a mutant with telepath and psychic abilities that can predict the future. We see a notion of this in the trailer as mentioned above. This is another step towards Sony’s attempt to build their cinematic universe which so far includes the films Venom, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Morbius, and Kraven the Hunter.
There was also a crossover in the MCU’s No Way Home that saw Tom Hardy’s Venom symbiote make its way to the world of Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man. We might get more on that in the upcoming Venom 3.
Madame Web will be released in theaters on February 14, 2024. Check out the trailer below:
