Marvel fans may be holding on to the hopes that Sony renegotiates with Disney to help keep Tom Holland's Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe but it looks like the studio's begun busying itself with work on Sony's Universe of Marvel Characters.

Not only is Sony gearing up to begin production on Venom 2, but a new report says that the studio is adding another movie into the SUMC. In addition to the sequel to venom and to the Morbius standalone movie, a new report by Collider reveals that Sony Pictures has decided to develop another Spider-Man spinoff, this time based on the Spider-Man character, Madame Web.

According to the entertainment news outlet, though a director has yet to be named for the project, Morbius writers Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama have already been tapped to work on the script for the Madame Web spinoff movie.

For those who aren't familiar with the character, Madame Web is a supporting character in the Spider-Man comics. Depicted as an elderly woman with myasthenia gravis, Madame Web is connected to a life support system that looked a whole lot like a spider-web. A clairvoyant and precognitive mutant, Madame Web helps out Spider-Man from time to time, though her age and medical condition prohibit her from actively fighting villains.

Interestingly enough, Madame Web is also the grandmother of the fourth Spider-Woman, Charlotte Witter.

We're not quite sure whether Tom Holland's Spider-Man would join the SUMC just yet, but we're hoping that we get to see him in Madame Webb.

Madame Web has yet to receive a release date. We'll update everyone as soon as we get word.
