Dakota Johnson takes on the lead role as a mutant endowed with psychic sensory powers, enabling her to foresee the futures of fellow superheroes in the universe. Her character in the film serves as the apprentice to the original Madame Web, who, in the comic books, is known as Cassandra Webb.

"It was a wild experience," Johnson told Variety of filming Madame Web. "I don't think you can be prepped to go into anything like that, but I learned so much. It is a completely different way of making films."

Marvel : le personnage de Madame Web a été complètement changé pour son film

In the comic book narrative, Cassandra Webb functions as a professional medium, utilizing her clairvoyance. However, this unique ability is not of occult origin; rather, it stems from her mutant powers. This extrasensory awareness becomes a crucial aspect of her life, compensating for various disabilities.

Madame Web is depicted as blind elderly woman, paralyzed, and afflicted with the neuromuscular disease myasthenia gravis. To sustain her, she remains connected to a life support machine crafted by her husband, distinctively resembling a spider's web.

As revealed in the first trailer for Sony's upcoming movie Madame Web, the iconic heroine is undergoing a substantial revamp in the Sony Spider-Man Universe. Dakota Johnson takes on the role, portraying a version of Madame Web who is noticeably younger than the character depicted in the comics. This fresh portrayal promises a unique and contemporary take on the beloved Marvel character.

In the narrative of the Madame Web film, Webb starts as a paramedic and undergoes a transformation when she gains clairvoyant abilities. These extraordinary powers open a gateway to a hidden "spider world," propelling her and a group of fellow young women towards an impending collision with danger.

The trailer provides a captivating glimpse into the futures of the women connected to Cassandra, including Julia Carpenter (Sydney Sweeney), Mattie Franklin (Celeste O’Connor), and Anya Corazon (Isabela Merced). It suggests that each of them is on the path to adopting different spider-themed hero identities, mirroring the evolution seen in Marvel's comics. This choice, similar to Sony's Venom movies, brings an interesting twist by exploring Spider-Man's world without featuring Spider-Man directly in the story.

Madame Web is slated to premiere on Valentine's Day, swinging into theaters on Feb. 14, 2024.
