Madame Web's Emma Roberts Confirms Her Character Is Not a Superhero.

Madame Web star Emma Roberts has confirmed that her mystery character in the upcoming Spider-Man spinoff film is not a superhero, at least, not in the traditional sense.

"What I can tell you is I'm not a superhero, Some people may think she's a superhero but not... like I don't have supernatural powers. So I can tell you that." Regarding Madame Web itself, Roberts added, "It's really different from any of the other Marvel movies, it's super grounded. I love that it has so many great actresses, it's really female-driven, and I just think it's not going to be what people expect."

In a recent interview with Collider, the American Horror Story and Scream Queens talent reflected on her initial introduction to the MCU-entwined Spiderverse, telling the publication, "I thought it was very unexpected. It's so funny; one day, you're just walking around your house, and then you get a phone call that they want to meet you for a Marvel movie."

At the time of her casting announcement, Roberts's role was left under wraps, along with the ambiguous cast attached consisting of Sydney Sweeney, Celeste O'Connor, Isabela Merced, Tahar Rahim, Mike Epps, Adam Scott, and Zosia Mamet. The Spider-Man spin-off film has since wrapped filming, moved into post-production, and currently holds a theatrical release date that's slated for February 16, 2024.
