Sony Pictures is currently hard at work on expanding its Spider-Man Universe with filming for the mysterious Madame Web movie, which is set for release in October 2023. The film boasts an all-star cast of characters in largely unknown roles, including Dakota Johnson in the leading role with Euphoria’s Sydney Sweeney, Parks & Recreation’s Adam Scott, and We’re The Millers’ Emma Roberts as supporting characters.
Now, thanks to a new round of set photos, fans may have some insight regarding a potentially huge addition to the Spider-Man Universe coming in this solo outing.
Emma Roberts Shines in Madame Web Set Photos
Twitter user @dakotaj_updates shared a pair of set photos from Sony Pictures’ Madame Web, which is currently filming in Boston, Massachusetts.
The photos largely focus on Dakota Johnson’s Madame Web, although one of them also seems to show Emma Roberts as well. However, it’s difficult to be absolutely certain that this is Roberts in the second photo with her hand blocking her face.
Outside of the web-slinger himself, there aren’t many heroes under Sony’s umbrella bigger than Jessica Drew, who could be utilized as a key hero in her own right if given the opportunity. Madame Web and Spider-Woman even have some notable ties in the comics, which could lend more credence to her making an appearance in this movie with Emma Roberts in the role.
With Madame Web reportedly being set in the early 2000s, Roberts’ potential Spider-Woman could be set up with plenty of history if the character does end up making her big screen debut alongside Dakota Johnson. Madame Web is set to premiere in theaters on October 6, 2023.
