We may still know very little about Sony's Madame Web – dig through the comics all you like, but beyond the basic concept, we still don't know what the filmmaking team will decide to use (or invent). But we're learning plenty about who will be in front of the camera. The latest recruit for the movie is Emma Roberts.

Originally created by writer Denny O’Neil and artist John Romita Jr., Madame Web first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #210, which was published in November 1980. Known as Cassandra Webb, she is usually depicted as an elderly blind woman suffering from a chronic neuromuscular disease that makes it difficult to move and breathe, and as such, she’s connected to a life support system that looks like a spider web. The clairvoyant character has precognitive abilities and once helped Spider-Man find a kidnap victim.

Dakota Johnson is starring in the movie, alongside Euphoria's Sydney Sweeney plus Celeste O’Connor, Isabela Merced and Tahar Rahim.

SJ Clarkson's in the director's chair, while Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless wrote the most recent draft of the script. Madame Web is currently scheduled to arrive in July next year.
