Despite the rash of COVID-19 (coronavirus) related delays in both production and release for movies around the world, the minds behind your favorite franchises are continuing to ramp up their plans. Variety has reported that Sony has pegged TV director S.J. Clarkson (Jessica Jones, The Defenders) for a new film project in Sony’s Marvel universe.
Though details about the project remain mysterious, it has been noted that Clarkson will work on Sony’s first female-focused project, making it possible that she’ll be taking on the Madame Web movie announced late last year. In Marvel Comics, Madame Web is an elderly, telepathic, precognitive mutant confined to a hospital bed surrounded by life support machines that resemble a spider web. Her mutant abilities make her a strong ally for Peter Parker, though she never actually fights villains herself for obvious reasons.
