Sony’s Spider-Man Cinematic Universe continues to have problems. Yesterday, in fact, Variety announced that Kraven the Hunter e Madame Web, two spinoffs focusing on comic book characters very close to Spider-Man have been officially postponed. The second has even been moved to 2024.

Spinoffs on Kraven and Madame Web have been postponed

These are the new dates: Kraven the Hunter, initially scheduled for January 13, 2023, will be released in theaters on October 6, 2023, while Madame Web has been moved from October 6 to February 15, 2024.. The first film will see Aron Taylor-Johnson (now in theaters with Bullet Train) as one of Spider-Man’s most notorious nemeses although it’s not yet clear if Spiderman will appear in any way. The villain of the spinoff will be the Foreigner, played by Christopher Abbott.

First appeared on the pages of comics in 1986, the Stranger is a master assassin and former husband of Silver Sableanother character well known to Spider-Man fans. Christopher Abbott, star of the Catch-22 series and nominated for a Golden Globe, will play him. In the Marvel Comics the Stranger was also involved in the killing of Ned Leedsthe Daily Bugle reporter who later morphed into the Hobgoblin, as well as clashing with Spider-Man on several occasions.

Madame Web will instead focus on another famous character from the Spider-Man comics, or Cassandra Webb, a mutant with the powers of telepathy and clairvoyance. On the printed pages she is portrayed as an old woman, while in the Sony spinoff she will be played by Dakota Johnson. For this reason, many have speculated that the film may not be centered on the original Madame Web. The cast also includes Sydney Sweeney, known for playing Cassie Howard in Euphoriaan acclaimed HBO series starring another Spider-related actress, Zendaya, the MJ of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
