Dakota Johnson to star in Spider-Man spinoff Madame Web

Sony’s latest “Spider-Man” spin-off nabs “Lost Daughter” and “Fifty Shades of Grey” star

“Fifty Shades” star Dakota Johnson is in talks with Sony to star as Madame Webb in a spinoff centered on the Spider-Man character. S.J. Clarkson is attached to direct the feature.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, Madame Web is a clairvoyant mutant who specialises in predicting the future of Spider-themed superheroes, having mentored not only Peter Parker’s alter ego, but also multiple generations of heroes calling themselves Spider-Woman. Traditionally depicted as a blind, paralysed old woman, she is surrounded by a web-like machine necessary to keep her alive, meaning that she stays away from direct conflict, and rather sends others on missions.

Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless are set to write the script, the duo also behind “Morbius”, which is due out this April.
