The ever-growing Spider-Verse expands further, making room for Sony’s first female-led Marvel superhero film that reveals the origins of one of its most mysterious heroines, Madame Web.

Taking the action and mystery to an all-new universe set away from Venom, Morbius, and the Spider-Man films we’ve seen so far, Madame Web’s powers open up exciting opportunities and unleash an all-new dimension of madness from this much-loved multiverse.

Cassandra Webb is an ordinary paramedic until she discovers that she has extraordinary telepathic and extrasensory powers. Talk about Spidey-Senses… this Spider-Woman is a mutant clairvoyant!

Not only that, but her life is being inexplicably spun together with three young women with remarkable abilities of their own. Together, these Spider-Women must work together to stop an enigmatic villain who appears to be this universe’s not-so-friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man.

Dakota Johnson swings into her very first superhero role as Cassandra, where she’s joined by up-and-coming stars Sydney Sweeney as Julia Carpenter, Isabela Merced as Anya Corazon, and Celeste O’Connor’s Mattie Franklin. Emma Roberts, Adam Scott, and Tahar Rahim also feature amongst this exciting web of cast members.

Look out, here come the Spider-Women!

The Marvels
