With production now underway on Sony’s latest Spider-Man spinoff, Madame Web, Adam Scott has been confirmed to be joining the cast.

Sony’s Spider-Man Universe began with Tom Hardy’s Venom franchise and more recently saw the release of Jared Leto’s Morbius. The next Spider-Man spinoff from Sony will be Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s Kraven the Hunter, before Dakota Johnson’s Madame Web, which is scheduled for release next year.

Filming recently started on Madame Web and now Parks and Recreation star Adam Scott has been announced to be joining the project.

The Growing Cast Of ‘Madame Web’

The last few months have been filled with casting announcements for Sony’s upcoming Spidey spinoff, with Adam Scott joining stars such as Mike Epps, Sydney Sweeney and Emma Roberts.

Adam Scott is probably best known for his role as Ben Wyatt, the husband of Leslie Knope, in the sitcom Parks and Recreation. He has also recently received an Emmy nomination for his role in the critically acclaimed series Severance.

As with other casting announcements for Madame Web, no details have been revealed of Adam Scott’s role in the film.

Previous reports have suggested that the project may be larger than its title lets on, either serving as an introduction to another of Sony’s Spider-Man characters or as a larger team-up movie led by Dakota Johnson’s Madame Web.

In the Marvel comics, Madame Web is a blind mentor figure who is permanently connected to a vast life-support machine, so it seems likely other heroes could be involved in the film. The first set photos revealed that the film is at least partially set in the early noughties.

Here is the synopsis for the latest entry in Sony’s Spider-Man Universe, Morbius:

One of Marvel’s most compelling and conflicted characters comes to the big screen as Oscar® winner Jared Leto transforms into the enigmatic antihero, Michael Morbius. Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder, and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. What at first appears to be a radical success, a darkness inside him is unleashed and transforms this healer into a hunter.

Directed Daniel Espinosa from a script written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, the film stars Jared Leto as the lead anti-hero, Adria Arjona, Matt Smith, Jared Harris, and Tyrese Gibson. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producing the project with Lucas Foster, while Palak Patel will oversee for Sony.

Morbius is now available on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD. Stay tuned for all the latest news on Madame Web, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content!
