The latest Marvel picture in Sony’s Spider-Man Universe, starring Dakota Johnson as Madame Web, has begun filming, according to the first set photos to leak online. Dakota johnson will make her screen debut in Madame Web as the blind mystic from Marvel who frequently serves as an enigmatic mentor to Spider-Man. In Sony’s Spider-Man spinoff universe, the movie will stand alongside works like Tom Hardy’s Venom, Jared Leto’s Morbius, and Aaron Taylor-upcoming Johnson’s Kraven the Hunter.
The movie Madame Web has finally begun production after months of casting announcements, and fresh set photographs show that at least some of the action will occur in the early 2000s.
20 Years Ago, Madame Web Arrived In NYC
The first set of images from the filming of Madame Web shows Boston neighborhoods being decked with billboards for Beyoncé’s album “Dangerously In Love” and advertisements for Palm Pilots with “3G speed,” putting the movie in 2003.
It’s unclear at this point whether Madame Web will entirely take place about 20 years ago or if the sequences presently being shot are a part of a flashback sequence. Although the Marvel movie’s specifics have been kept closely under wraps, it is thought that the main character’s origin tale will be told.
The plot summary for Sony’s most recent Spider-Man Universe release, Morbius, is given below:
With Oscar® winner Jared Leto assuming the identity of the mysterious antihero Michael Morbius, one of Marvel’s most captivating and complex characters makes his big-screen debut. Dr. Morbius makes a desperate wager in an effort to help others who are also afflicted with a rare blood condition and are in grave danger. What at first seems to be a spectacular success is actually the unleashing of darkness within him that turns this healer into a hunter.
The movie, which was directed by Daniel Espinosa and features Jared Leto as the main anti-hero along with Adria Arjona, Matt Smith, Jared Harris, and Tyrese Gibson, was written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless. The project is being produced by Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, and Lucas Foster, with Palak Patel serving as the project manager for Sony.
