Sony has been dead-set for years now on building its own Marvel universe centered around its library of Spider-Man heroes, and it’s finally achieving that with movies based on Venom, Morbius, Kraven the Hunter, El Muerto, and Madame Web fleshing out this world. But the one thing this interconnected world continues to lack is its own wall-crawler.
With Tom Holland firmly placed in the MCU and the future uncertain for Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, many have been wondering which iteration of the hero will eventually face off against these famous foes – especially as Sony’s place in the Marvel Multiverse remains unclear.
The Multiverse has always been integral to Spider-Man, with the wall-crawler famous for having many varied iterations. This concept will soon be further explored in Madame Web, which stars Dakota Johnson, Sydney Sweeney, Emma Roberts, and Adam Scott.
As Sony expands the cast of Madame Web, it has continued to be mysterious about which Marvel characters each of its cast will be playing. Now, a report has revealed much of the cast of characters, and it may reveal the imminent arrival of Spider-Man, in a sense.
Madame Web to Include Baby Spider-Man
According to an exclusive report from The Cosmic Circus, American Horror Story star Emma Roberts will play Mary Parker in Sony’s Spider-Man Universe’s Madame Web.
Mary Parker – who is the mother of Peter Parker – will also be pregnant in Madame Web, indicating a baby Peter Parker may be on the way.
Roberts will reportedly play alongside Dakota Johnson’s Cassandra Webb, Sydney Sweeney’s Julia Carpenter, and Adam Scott’s Uncle Ben.
Then again, Sony has long proven its willingness to generate mass confusion and create nonsensical plot points, so anything is possible. Fans will have to wait and see what the studio has in store when Madame Web hits theaters on October 6, 2023.
