S.J. Clarkson to Direct Sony Spider-Man Spinoff Movie
Sony’s seemingly interminable behind-the-scenes endeavor to expand its Spider-Man-centric (Marvel Cinematic Universe-adjacent) big screen arena has taken a major step with the hiring of a prolific voice in genre television, S.J. Clarkson.

A secret Marvel movie is reportedly in focus over at Sony Pictures, and Variety reports that the studio has signed Clarkson—a veteran of genre television shows, notably Marvel’s Jessica Jones and The Defenders—to develop and direct. While specifics were not provided on the project, it is expected to manifest as the first female-centric movie in Sony’s Marvel Cinematic Spider-Verse.

No writers have been attached as of yet.

Madame Webb debuted in The Amazing Spider-Man
