Sydney Sweeney To Co-Star Opposite Dakota Johnson In Sony's Marvel 'Madame Web'


Recommended Posts

Deadline is reporting that Sydney Sweeney has signed on to join Dakota Johnson in Sony Pictures’ Madame Web.  It is unknown who Sweeney will be playing in the film.

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. For that reason, sources have stressed it’s possible the project could turn into something else. Insiders say due to her psychic sensory powers, she is essentially Sony’s version of Doctor Strange.

The film is being directed by S.J. Clarkson from a screenplay by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless.  Kerem Sanga penned a previous draft.

Sweeney is credited with HBO’s The White Lotus and Euphoria, The Voyeurs for Amazon, and Blumhouse’s Nocturne.

Why are we casting a child in this role?
I was expecting a Helen Mirren type. Someone with some years and some gravitas under their belt. 

(I will fully admit to only knowing Madame Webb from the 90's animated series, so perhaps that depiction was inaccurate?)

Dakota Johnson is Madame Web. It could be she is the Julia Carpenter version.

Sydney Sweeney has another role.

My guess is she is the Gwen Stacey Spidergirl

I doubt they gonna let actress of Euphoria fame be Spider-Gwen who is presented by Marvel as female hero/role model for all ages, mainly because unlike Zendaya Sydney Sweeney is very often nude and in sex scenes in the series. I would assume she's  could be playing either Mattie Franklin the third Spider-Woman or more likely Charlotte Web the Evil Spider-Woman.
