This February, Sony Pictures is releasing a brand new film, “Madam Web”,  which takes place in an alternative multiverse and is a standalone origin story of one of Marvel publishing’s most enigmatic heroines.

The suspense-driven thriller stars Dakota Johnson as Cassandra Webb, a paramedic in Manhattan who may have clairvoyant abilities. Forced to confront revelations about her past, she forges a relationship with three young women destined for powerful futures…if they can all survive a deadly present.

“Madame Web” also stars Sydney Sweeney, Isabela Merced, Celeste O’Connor, Tahar Rahim, Mike Epps, Emma Roberts and
Adam Scott.  It has been directed by SJ Clarkson.

When Is “Madame Web” Released?

“Madame Web” is being released exclusively in cinemas on Valentine’s Day, Wednesday 14th February 2024.  Following its theatrical release, it will then be released on digital platforms like Apple, Amazon and Vudu to purchase/rent before being released on physical media formats like DVD and Blu-Ray.

When Will “Madame Web” Be On Disney+?

While “Madame Web” is based on a Marvel Comic book and features characters owned by Marvel, Sony Pictures is releasing the movie, so unlike other Marvel Studios films, it won’t automatically come to Disney+ following its theatrical and digital release.

Instead, in the United States, “Madame Web” will be heading to Netflix first as part of a multi-year Pay One deal for around eighteen months.    Disney does have a multi-year Pay Two licensing deal that covers Sony’s theatrical releases from 2022 to 2026 for Disney’s vast portfolio of platforms, including its streaming services Disney+ and Hulu, as well as linear entertainment networks including ABC, Disney Channels, Freeform, FX and National Geographic. 

This means that “Madame Web” will likely arrive on Disney+ and Hulu around two years after the movie’s theatrical release, February/March 2026.  But no exact Disney+ release has been announced yet.

Internationally, things are a little less complicated since while Disney has licensed some “Spider-Man” films for Disney+, these are all for older titles outside of their Pay One and Pay Two windows, so it might be years, if ever, until “Madame Web” is available on Disney+ internationally.
