Dakota Johnson might be entering the Spider-Verse. According to “The Hollywood Reporter,” the 32-year-old actor is in talks to star as the titular character in the upcoming Spider-Man spinoff “Madame Web,” which would make her the first woman superhero to appear in Sony’s Marvel universe.

While no other details have been released, Madame Web appears in the comics as an elderly woman with myasthenia gravis, who is connected to a life-support system that resembles a web. Due to her medical condition, she never actively fights any villains. It’s unclear if this will change for Johnson’s character.

The Sony movie will be directed by S.J. Clarkson, with Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless writing the screenplay. A release date has yet to be announced.
