Sony and Marvel’s Madame Web has been one of their most secretive projects as apart from the cast and the fact that Dakota Johnson is playing the titular role, the only other thing known about the movie is that it takes place in the early 2000s.
However, recently, some set photos have appeared, giving us our first look at the upcoming movie. The cast that had so far been announced includes Dakota Johnson as the lead along with Sidney Sweeney, Emma Roberts, Isabela Merced, and Celeste O’Conner. Their roles so far are unknown with the exception of O’Conner as Mattie Franklin and Isabela Merced as Anya Corazon. The new photos although, created a wrangle amongst fans regarding the casting of Sweeney ever since her entire debacle with her mother’s 60th birthday party.
Sydney Sweeney Unintentionally Created An Uproar Against Her
During a visit to her family for her mother’s 60th birthday celebrations, Sydney Sweeney posted photos of the party on social media which caused a riot amongst her fans. This was because the guests who had been attending the event and had been captured in the actress’ posts had been wearing “blue lives matter” shirts, and had been accused of being racist.
This gave the Euphoria actress a lot of backlash and hate and she had been trying to defend herself over and over again as to how her fans had been making assumptions and all the allegations against her had been false, to begin with.
The entire social media had seemed to be against Sweeney, including her fans, all calling her racist and then defending herself for it. This also came into play after the release of the set photos for Madame Web and her being in the movie, making fans question whether Marvel made the right casting decision or not.
Madame Web’s New Set Photos Reveal First Look At The Cast And Giving A Hint On Who They Might Be Playing Along With Sydney Sweeney
Although most roles are unknown as of now, the set photos have allowed fans to make deductions on who might be playing which character. Apart from the already confirmed roles of Dakota Johnson, Isabela Merced, and Celeste O’Conner, Sydney Sweeney’s role had been kept under wraps for the longest of time, making fans wonder about who she might be playing.
In the photos, it can be seen that the actress is wearing a red wig, which could give the biggest hint of her playing Julia Carpenter, the second Spider-Woman the second Arachne, and the second Madame Web. Sweeney’s appearance in the photos is a perfect fit for the actress to be playing her role. Although there had been theories about her possibility of playing Felicia Hardy, aka Blackcat, or Gwen Stacy’s Spider-Gwen; her red hair quite easily rules out these two options as the former is identified by her sparkling silver hair while the latter rocks her blonde hair with a hair-band for the most of the comics.
Apart from this, there hasn’t been much revealed about the movie and its plot. Perhaps for that, we’d have to wait till 2024, when the movie is set to release.
