Madame Web Unveiled: Early Reactions to Sony/Marvel's Latest Superhero Venture

Dakota Johnson leads as the titular character, a woman blessed with psychic prowess.

Arriving amidst a turbulent landscape for superhero flicks, Madame Web enters the fray as the fourth instalment in Sony's shared Spider-Man Universe (SSU). With recent Marvel and DC outings facing mixed reviews and lacklustre box office receipts, the pressure is on for Madame Web to buck the trend. Following predecessors Venom (2018), Venom: Let There Be Carnage (2021), and Morbius (2022), expectations are high but tempered by past critical reception.

Despite the SSU's checkered history, Sony remains undeterred, lining up future releases including Kraven the Hunter and Venom 3. As anticipation mounts for Madame Web's full reviews, early reactions offer a glimpse into the film's reception post-premiere.
