Hi everyone, this is Angelina, isnewstime.com writer. Our whole team writes articles for this website and we follow international media trends. Today, I want to talk about the new Madame Web movie in Sony’s Spider-Man universe. If you’re a spidey fan, you’re in for a treat.
Web of Possibilities
First, let’s clear up any confusion – Madame Web is not part of the MCU. It’s firmly set in Sony’s Spider-Man universe (SSU). This movie is shaping up to be a game changer for the franchise, exploring the character of Cassandra Web, played by Dakota Johnson.
Cassandra is a mutant clairvoyant with extrasensory powers tied to the multiverse. This promises a mind-bending cinematic adventure! Mark your calendars, spidey fans – Madame Web hits theaters on February 14, 2024. Yes, they’re going for that Valentine’s Day slot, like Deadpool did successfully back in 2016.
“With her remarkable ability to switch between universes, this 2024 movie could seamlessly tie everything together in a more coherent and satisfying way.”
Casting a Wide Web
In the cast, Dakota Johnson takes the lead role, bringing her flair to Madame Web. Joining her are Sydney Sweeney as Julia Carpenter and Celeste O’Connor as Mattie Franklin, introducing two live-action Spider-Women. Isabela Merced is also on board as Ana Corazon, expanding the spider-verse.
The cast doesn’t stop there. It includes:
- Sydney Sweeney

All in undisclosed roles. Tahar Rahim plays intriguing villain Ezekiel Sims.
Origins and Nemeses
The recently released trailer gives us a 3-minute glimpse into the plot. Madame Web is not just another hero – she’s a psychic whose origin story will showcase her powers and establish her pivotal role in the SSU.
The main nemesis is Ezekiel Sims, portrayed by Tahar Rahim. He seems to be hunting Madame Web and other “spider-people.” Speculation is that the movie will explore the Web of Life and Destiny concept from comics, which is tied to Madame Web powers.
Sony has struggled with crossovers between the MCU and SSU, but Madame Web could fix that! With her remarkable ability to switch between universes, this 2024 movie could seamlessly tie everything together in a more coherent and satisfying way.
There’s even speculation that “Madame Web” might be set before other films in the SSU, adding another layer of complexity to the timeline.
The Madame Web movie is shaping up to be a crucial and intriguing entry in Sony’s Spider-Man universe – exploring the multiverse, introducing new characters, and potentially connecting the dots between the SSU and MCU.
