It appears as though Sony Pictures is still in the midst of expanding their sect of Marvel movies. While we’re still a ways to go till the delayed release of Venom: Let There Be Carnage and Morbius in 2021, word is out that a new female-centric Marvel film is in the works.
Variety reports that this new project is helmed by Jessica Jones and The Defenders director S.J. Clarkson. The new film could focus on Madame Web, an elderly clairvoyant mutant with telepathic abilities who serves as an ally to Spider-Man in the comics.
How exactly she might tie in to the rest of the Spider-Man films including the mainline ones starring Tom Holland, as well as the likes of Venom and Morbius, remains to be seen. The same report also indicates that Sony Pictures might be “looking for an A-list actor” to portray Madame Web, though the studio made no comment about their current plans for the movie.
Aside from Venom and Morbius, the third Spider-Man film has also been delayed to November 2021, while the second Into the Spider-Verse animated movie is slated to release in theatres sometime in 2022.
