Fans are worried due to the Shift in Release Dates
Sony, shifting the release date of Madame Web, has left fans worried about the movie’s success. They are worried that the movie does not pull a Morbius all over again. Morbius is the 3rd in SSU and based on the Marvel comics and the character of the same name. The movie was to be released in July 2020 but, its release date has been pushed forward again and again due to the COVID-19 pandemic. When the movie actually hit the theatres on April 10, 2022, fans criticized the visuals and bad writing. It received bad reviews from all over the world.
And with now, the movie seeing the same delay in its release. Fans are concerned that this movie also does not get butchered like Morbius. Some other fans have speculated that they are trying to avoid Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning release so that the movie does well.
Is it because they don't want to be in competition with Dead Reckoning – Part 1, which will be 1 week later?

Either way, let’s hope they don’t butcher the movie. Dakota Johnson will be the main lead and play the role of Madame Web herself.
