New ‘Madame Web’ Set Photos Paint A Clearer Picture Of Dakota Johnson’s Spider-Verse Character
Last week we got our first (unofficial) look at Dakota Johnson on the set of Sony and Marvel’s Madame Web.
This week, the leaks continued, with even more photos of the actress surfacing. Unlike the previous ones, these seem to be in HD, providing an even clearer look at the look the filmmakers are going for in the film.
You can take a look at the photos below!
As we previously pointed out, in the photos, Dakota Johnson is seen wearing a red trenchcoat. This leads us to believe that the film will revolve around Julia Carpenter’s version of the character, and not Cassandra Webb, who was the original person to take up the mantle.
In some comics, Carpenter has also gone on to become Spider-Woman.
S.J. Clarkson (Jessica Jones) will direct the film, while Morbius scribes Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, and Kerem Sanga (Dinner in America) contributed to the screenplay.
Besides Johnson, other cast members include Emma Roberts, Sydney Sweeny, Celeste O’Connor, Isabela Merced, Mike Epps, and Adam Scott.
For those unfamiliar with Madame Web, she 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 close to Deadline claim that Sony wants this character to be their own version of Doctor Strange, due to the character’s sensory powers.
Filming began earlier this month, and is expected to continue through September in Boston. The film just recently got pushed back to October 6, 2023. It appears the studio is hoping to bank of the success of the Venom films that also had moderate box office success after their October releases.
The next Spider-Verse film being served by Sony is Kraven the Hunter, which hits theaters this January.
