Beyond the Venom and Morbius tales, Sony’s Spider-Man Universe has continued to grow, most notably with S.J. Clarkson’s upcoming 2023 picture Madame Web. With the addition of a clairvoyant character in this new solo film, the SSMU will take on a new dimension. Sony has chosen an all-star cast to bring a sense of drama.
Taking her experiences from the frequently talked about Fifty Shades trilogy into something quite different from the world of superhero movies, Dakota Johnson was cast as the titular Madame Web.
Sony’s new solo film is still in the early phases of production, but Madame Web is still far from finished assembling the cast and crew that will bring the project to life. This is continued with a recent casting-related announcement that adds an actor with a strong track record of high-profile storylines in recent years.
Adam Scott Joins Spider-Man Spin-Off
Adam Scott has reportedly joined the cast of Sony Pictures’ Madame Web, which is scheduled for release in July 2023 as part of Sony’s Spider-Man Universe. Sony declined to comment on the casting to Deadline, and it is uncertain what his involvement entails.
The Parks and Recreation actor will be appearing in his first superhero film in this capacity. He most recently appeared in the critically acclaimed second season of the Apple TV series Severance.
Who will Adam Scott Play in Spider Film?
Although Sony’s Spider-Man spin-off series will be Adam Scott’s first foray into the superhero film genre, he is undoubtedly no stranger to ventures with millions of fans. His role is certain to have an impact among the cast of such famous actors joining this universe, even though it is yet unknown, as are the roles of his other castmates outside Dakota Johnson.
Even while filming is progressing, this movie’s release date is still over 11 months away, so it will probably be some time before any particular roles are disclosed for Scott or his co-stars. Only a few minor plot pieces have been revealed, which leaves many story specifics in the dark. This should start to change in the following months as Sony expands its universe.
Whatever happens to Madame Web, having an actor of Adam Scott’s stature on board should only serve to elevate the caliber and potential of this film as the Spidey spin-off attempts to write its own chapter in the narrative.
