While they point out that a Madame Web is possible, they could not confirm that is the project.

Sony has contacted prolific television director S.J. Clarkson will direct an untitled Marvel movie. I've heard rumors of Sony growing a Spider-Lady film about Jessica Drew, so it's all the time potential that Clarkson might be bringing that character to the large display.

Although it has not been confirmed at the moment who will be the central character, it is suggested that this could be the project that Sony Pictures was developing on Madame Web. S.J. Clarkson has been working in TV for almost two decades, with directing credits on Orange is the New Black, Jessica Jones, Succession, and more. Additionally, Clarkson directed the pilot episode for an unaired Game of Thrones prequel series led by Naomi Watts.

Both Morbius and a sequel to Venom had been confirmed prior to the pandemic, but on Wednesday, a Variety report revealed that another movie is now in the works, and TV director S.J. Clarkson has been chosen to develop the secret project. However, Variety reports that a writer isn't yet on board to pen the screenplay, despite the report that Morbius writers Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless had been hired. While she's always been more of a supporting character (she's bound to a life-support system), the clairvoyant has been at the heart of some of my favorite Spider-Man stories.

Sony is pretty much squeezing what they can from the Spider-Man IP and we've been getting news that there are plans to develop a woman-centric Spider-Verse spinoff. Known as Cassandra Webb, she is usually depicted as an elderly blind woman suffering from a chronic neuromuscular disease that makes it hard to move and breathe, and as such, she's connected to a life support system that looks like a spider web.
