Madame Web Has Morbius Writers

The Spider-Man spinoff tells the standalone origin story of one of Marvel publishing's most enigmatic heroines.

Madame Web Has Morbius Writers

The writers of the Morbius movie have been added to the writing credits of the upcoming Madame Web film, both a part of Sony’s Spider-Man spin-off universe.

The Madame Web trailer was released last month which credits the screenplay by “Claire Parker & SJ Clarkson.”

However, the official website for the flick lists the screenplay by “Matt Sazama & Burk Sharpless and Claire Parker & SJ Clarkson.”

Morbius was written by Matt Sazama & Burk Sharpless.

What could be going on is that Matt Sazama & Burk Sharpless may have worked on an earlier draft of Madame Web and then Claire Parker & SJ Clarkson came on board for rewrites.

IMDb also lists Matt Sazama & Burk Sharpless on Madame Web with “screenplay by” and “story by” credits.

Typically what happens is if a writer worked on a movie and contributed a certain percentage of ideas used in the completion of the film, they will get a writing credit, so that could be what’s happening here.

Hopefully, it’s not Madame Webbin’ time?

As we all know, Morbius didn’t perform all that well at the box office. It only made $167 million and was recently passed by The Marvels for the largest drop in superhero cinema history, so at least it doesn’t have that going for it anymore.

Sony also did a re-release and basically mocked the movie with that “Morbin’ time” marketing campaign.

Hopefully, Madame Web is a lot better.

Madame Web will be released sometime in 2024. S.J. Clarkson is also the director and Kerem Sanga is listed as also part of the story by credits. The cast includes Dakota Johnson, Sydney Sweeney, Isabela Merced, Celeste O’Connor, Tahar Rahim, Mike Epps, Emma Roberts, and Adam Scott.

Here is the synopsis:

“Meanwhile, in another universe…” In a switch from the typical genre, Madame Web tells the standalone origin story of one of Marvel publishing’s most enigmatic heroines. The suspense-driven thriller stars Dakota Johnson as Cassandra Webb, a paramedic in Manhattan who may have clairvoyant abilities. Forced to confront revelations about her past, she forges a relationship with three young women destined for powerful futures…if they can all survive a deadly present.
