‘Madame Web’ Gets China Release Date; Dakota Johnson & Sydney Sweeney In Marvel’s Origin Tale

Madame Web is headed East. Sony said today that its stand-alone origin tale from Marvel will hit China on March 1, two weeks after its North American bow.

Dakota Johnson stars as Cassandra Webb, a paramedic in Manhattan who develops the power to see the future and realizes she can use that insight to change it. Forced to confront revelations about her past, she forges a relationship with three young women (Sydney Sweeney, Isabela Merced and Celeste O’Connor) who are bound for powerful destinies — if they all can survive a deadly present.
