It looks as though the cast of Madame Web is filling out as Sydney Sweeney has joined the cast.
According to a report from Deadline, Sydney Sweeney (Euphoria) has joined the cast of Madame Web in an unknown role. She has been a popular fan cast for some time as either Spider-Gwen or Black Cat, but those seem unlikely considering the film’s title.
It was previously reported that Dakota Johnson would be playing Madame Web.
In the comics, Madame Web has powers such as telepathy and clairvoyance, but in Spider-Man: The Animated Series she had a much bigger purpose. She was tasked with testing Spider-Men from multiple dimensions to find the one to take on a villain called Spider-Carnage. While the threat could be changed to anything, the idea of a multidimensional trial of various Spider-Men could be very interesting to audiences.
As it stands right now nothing is known about the plot of the film, but the latest reports indicate it is targeting filming before the end of 2022. No release date has been announced as of yet.
