In addition to upcoming spin-off films such as Kraven the Hunter, Sony has a variety of other projects featuring different Spider-Man characters in the works. For example, we have a film based on the character Madame Web coming in 2023. Although details for the film are scarce, there have been an exciting number of cast members announced for the project. One such cast member is none other than Emma Roberts – and the first image of her on the set of Madame Web has reportedly arrived.
As you can see below, a pair of set photos from the production of Madame Web have been released online.
Although the images aren’t exactly the clearest depictions of what’s to come in the upcoming film, it seems as though both star Dakota Johnson and the aforementioned Emma Roberts are visible on the Madame Web set.
Here are the images:
Furthermore, it appears that the character Emma Roberts is allegedly playing is pregnant. This seems to suggest that she might actually be playing none other than Jessica Drew. Fans of the Spider-Man franchise will know that Jessica Drew is none other than Spider-Woman. This particular superhero has often been illustrated as being pregnant in her comic book appearances, so with this set photo, it seems as though they might be carrying that element over into the film. Of course, we’ll just have to continue keeping a close eye on the project to know for certain.
The film is being directed by S.J. Clarkson from a screenplay by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless. Kerem Sanga wrote an earlier draft of the script.
The surprisingly massive cast of Madame Web includes Dakota Johnson, Sydney Sweeney, Celeste O’Connor, Isabela Merced, Emma Roberts, Adam Scott, and Tahar Rahim. Fans can stay tuned to ScreenGeek for additional cast updates as we have them. At this rate, it’ll be exciting to see who else could be added to the growing ensemble.
Fans will be able to see Madame Web when it hits theaters next year on July 7, 2023.
