Emma Roberts is on board to star in the upcoming Spider-Man spin-off Madame Web in an undisclosed role. The film also stars Dakota Johnson and Euphoria’s Sydney Sweeney.
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
Emma Roberts previously starred in TV shows like Scream Queens and American Horror Story. Her movie credits also include We’re The Millers, Nerve, and Scream 4. Emma Roberts’ addition to Madame Web marks her first superhero movie role.
S.J. Clarkson will direct the film from a script written by Morbius scribes Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless. A previous draft of the film was also written by Kerem Sanga.
