Not much is known about the upcoming Madame Web film from Sony Pictures. In a recent interview, Euphoria star Sydney Sweeney assures fans that the film will be worth the wait.
Despite coming out in less than a year, Marvel fans know next to nothing about the upcoming Madame Web film that aren’t rumors. Fans know Dakota Johnson will be playing the film’s lead and likely a spider-person in some way and it is heavily rumored that the Euphoria star Sydney Sweeney will be playing Julia Carpenter, an alternate version of Spider-Woman. When speaking with Total Film, Sweeney didn’t reveal any details about her character, but did express her excitement for the project:
“I can’t wait to be able to be next to the girls that I filmed with – Dakota and Isabela, and Celeste,” Sweeney told Total Film. “We had so much fun together. And I’m really excited that it’s just gonna be a powerhouse of badass females for the world to see.”
It seems as though Sydney Sweeney isn’t just excited because the film’s quality is so good. She continued on to say that her family loves superheroes, emphasizing how excited they are for her role in Madame Web:
“Superheroes have been my entire life!” she explained. “Those [films] are all my parents ever wanted to go see. I think I’ve seen The Avengers probably 20, 30-plus times. My family, they love [them]… I could not have made them happier choosing to do that project [Madame Web].”
Many fans are likely to remain skepitcal of Madame Web despite Sydney Sweeney’s praise. Sony Pictures’ last Marvel outing with Morbius was made the laughing stock of the entire internet. Fans have also been left perplexed by the decision to give films to characters like El Muerto and Hypno-Hustler. Only time will tell if Madame Web will continue their streak of poorly received choices, or if it’ll swing to the top of the box office.
