Earlier recent set photos had suggested that the actor will be playing a variant of Peter Parker in the movie. Now, according to sources at The Cosmic Circus, the 49-year-old actor will be playing the role of the overtly killed uncle of the protagonist, Uncle Benjamin Parker. The heroic uncle who tries to stop a criminal while dying in the process has been played by numerous actors all throughout the iterations and remakes of Spider-Man.

Before the recent update, it was alleged that the actor will be playing the role of Peter Parker with the Cosmic Spider-Man variant available at his disposal. The Cosmic Spider-Man had powers such as Uni-vision (a single cosmic consciousness), forcing someone, to tell the truth, sensing distance between atomic scale, and, superhuman sight.

However, it seems that the title of Cosmic Spider-Man is up for grabs, now that Adam Scott would be playing the role of Uncle Ben.

Madame Web tells the story of a woman that is a leader of a spider-like unit/team. The lead role will be helmed by Dakota Johnson (from Fifty Shades fame), along with Emma Roberts and Adam Scott in other roles.

The film is Sony’s attempt to further the multiversal universe of Spider-Man. With the release of Venom and Morbius, the attempt of a spider-verse is going strong for Sony.

Madame Web is slated for a release date on 6th October 2023.
