Dakota Johnson’s Madame Web has officially joined Sony’s roster of box office and critical flops, but it seems the harsh reviews are not exacting enough to deter the lead star from wishing for a sequel. Indeed, Johnson believes she could make another installment.

Ever since Madame Web’s trailer debut, the franchise received negative criticism from fans. Its premiere also delivered a mediocre performance despite getting a Valentine’s Day release. Interestingly, it’s expected to perform worse than Jared Leto’s Morbius.

There is so much I would like to look at. If they want me to come back then I definitely will. I have no idea what’s in store.”

As this is her first time to play a superhero role, the Fifty Shades of Grey actress shared what kind of Marvel team-up she would want to see in the future. While she starred alongside Sydney Sweeney, Celeste O’Connor, and Isabela Merced in the film, she prefers physically stronger heroes via Digital Spy.

This is my first kind of introduction to Marvel, so I feel I would choose whichever superheroes have more physical strengths than Madame Web. I feel she could handle all the intellectual stuff, and then I just need people who are really strong or like shoot lasers or fireballs out of their fingertips or something.”

Director SJ Clarkson, who worked on Netflix’s Jessica Jones, also hinted at the possibility of a second Madame Web film.

If I had clairvoyance I would tell you [what she’d want to explore in a sequel]. I’ve not long finished the film, so I’m going to put it out there in the world and see what happens.”

Fans are clearly finding this hilarious as evident in their reactions online. Many trolled Johnson’s response to the potential of a sequel.

Jared Leto Is Definitely Ready For Morbius 2

Meanwhile, Jared Leto’s Morbius also ended up a massive box-office bomb for Sony and Marvel Studios, but the actor claims he would never say never for a sequel. In fact, he shared via ComicBookMovie that they talked about where the sequel will head if it gets the green light:

There are some pretty great examples in the early comics and ideas of where we could go in the future if we suited up. That could be a lot of fun actually. I like a lot of those elements. The artwork for me was a great source of inspiration.”

With the performances of Madame Web and Morbius looking very underwhelming, all hopes for a sequel seem to be in vain. Still, the lead stars believe they will get another shot at playing their respective characters despite the depressing figures and severe critical reviews.

Morbius is available to stream via Netflix, while Madame Web is currently showing in theaters worldwide.
