Here’s a rather curious detail, as The Direct has noticed that actress Dakota Johnson, who was recently confirmed that she’ll tackle the role of Madame Web in her own solo outing, has shared a curious piece from Deadline on the project. That alone continues to confirm that she is past the “in talks” stage but what stands out is that she also tagged Sony alongside Marvel Studios in her post.
Of course, this doesn’t confirm that Marvel Studios have any direct involvement with the project, but it’s not the first time that there have been hints they are starting to co-develop some of the projects currently over at Sony. We had a similar reveal from Olivia Wilde, who is currently working on a Spider-Woman project. She revealed that she was actively consulting Kevin Feige, the CEO of Marvel Studios, who also works with sony on the recent Spider-Man trilogy.
There’s a good chance that these projects continue to take place throughout different parts of the multiverse while Marvel can focus on their own projects. Yet, as Madame Web is known for her ties to Spider-Man’s own web of the multiverse, they may want to be involved as much as possible to ensure that it connects perfectly into their own plans. Plus, who knows how they might continue to explore the multiverse after the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home.
