Sidney Sweeney Cast In Sony’s Madame Web

Sidney Sweeney Cast In Sony's Madame Web

Deadline reports that Euphoria actress Sydney Sweeney cast in Sony’s Madame Web movie opposite star Dakota Johnson. It is currently unknown who Sweeney is playing in the movie. Hardly surprising considering the idea of Madame Web getting her own movie was probably the last thing any Marvel fan expected. Madame Web is usually a old lady with psychic powers, but one who doesn’t actually get involved very much in any fighting or direct actions. Madame Web usually prefers to get others to do things for her, such as Spider-Man.

Here is what Deadline said.

After a breakout year that included starring roles in HBO’s The White Lotus and Euphoria, Sydney Sweeney is now ready to jump into Sony’s Universe of Marvel Characters. Sources tell Deadline that she has joined Dakota Johnson in Sony Pictures’ Madame Web. S.J. Clarkson is on board to direct the pic. Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless penned the screenplay, with Kerem Sanga also penning a previous draft.

Not only is Sweeney on one of the hottest shows of the year in Euphoria (HBO recently announced it is the network’s second most-viewed show behind only Game of Thrones), she clearly came away as one of the big winners from this season and has quickly jumped to the top of every major studio lists for young rising stars. Sources say Sweeney had been weighing several offers in recent weeks, but the opportunity to join Johnson in what would be the first female-centric film in this universe was too good to pass up.

I have not seen Euphoria yet. I cannot therefore comment on Sweeney within it, but the buzz is strong among those who have watched the show. Sony are really batting high when it comes to casting lately for both this Madame Web movie and the slightly ahead it seems Kraven the Hunter starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson. As always with the SSMU, my issues is the notable absence of any Spider-Man in this Spider-Man Universe. Let’s hope Sony can sort that issue out and this may all work. But without Spider-Man in his own universe? I kinda just don’t see the point of any of this, other than Sony making money that is.
