Sony continues to develop its own Spider-Man characters' universe, despite the misfortunes of 'Morbius'.

'Madame Web ', Sony's next Spider-Man-related movie endeavor, will hit theatres in July 2023, telling the story of a clairvoyant connected to the multiverse. However, despite already securing stars like Dacota Johnson and Sydney Sweeney to be a part of the movie, the studio does not enjoy a lot of support from fans, who have legitimate concerns about the film's prospects.

One of the main arguments is that Madame Web is a character tightly connected and dependent on Spider-Man, with many fans suggesting that there is little to develop in the story if Peter Parker is not the part of it.

Sony has not announced Spider-Man as part of the movie, with people concluding that the film will be somewhat similar to 'Morbius ' in this sense. And it's not necessarily a good thing.

According to Sony's first description of the movie, "the film will be an origin story of the clairvoyant [Madame Web], whose psychic abilities allow her to see within the spider world." This could mean an actual connection to the Spider-Verse – something that was a success for Sony.

However, there are still very few details known about 'Madame-Web'. While Dakota Johnson plays the titular role, 'Euphoria ' star Sydney Sweeney's character remains unknown. Recently, Celeste O'Connor has also beeen announced as part of the cast.

'Madame Web' is expected to hit theatres on July 7, 2023.
