Tahar Rahim joins cast of Dakota Johnson starrer 'Madame Web'

Hollywood actor Tahar Rahim is set to join Dakota Johnson in Sony Pictures' upcoming Marvel film 'Madame Web'.

According to Deadline, Rahim will be joining cast members Sydney

Sweeney, Celeste O'Connor and Isabela Merced for director SJ Clarkson.

Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless have penned the screenplay, with Kerem Sanga also penning a previous draft.

It's set for release in theatres on July 7, 2023, on the heels of J.C.

Chandor's 'Kraven the Hunter', starring Aaron Taylor Johnson, which is slated for release on January 13.

In the comics, Madame Web is depicted as an elderly woman with

myasthenia gravis and thus was connected to a life-support system that looked like a spider web.

Due to her age and medical condition, Madame Web never actively fought any villains.
