Meanwhile, prior to the release of Madame Web, Dakota Johnson noted having overwhelming thoughts about her involvement in Marvel and superhero movies.

When I got the Madame Web role, I ran into Lizzie Olsen in the hotel lobby and spoke to her about it for a bit, and that was helpful. She said she had a great time and… seemed very relaxed about it, so that was comforting.”  

This particular bit from the interview spread through the internet like wildfire for it seemingly implied that Dakota Johnson was confused about her work. Netizens believed that the actress might be confusing her Marvel project to be a part of Kevin Feige’s MCU since Elizabeth Olsen’s experience comforted Johnson. But surprisingly, the actress isn’t the only one who seems confused about whether Madame Web is a part of Marvel or MCU. 

Madame Web is Not a Part of Kevin Feige’s Marvel Empire

Following Dakota Johnson’s interview with L’Officiel USA, fans gathered on X to discuss how the actress might have confused her project to be a part of MCU. And surprisingly it’s not just Johnson, because most people who aren’t die-hard Marvel fans are unaware of the division. Considering that Madame Web is under the Sony-Marvel banner, people began considering the film as a part of the MCU.

Especially since Madame Web is set to make a connection with Spider-Man, Dakota Johnson and people seemingly started believing the movie was a part of the MCU. Sorry to burst the bubble, but Johnson’s Madame Web is going to be a superhero flick distributed by Sony; it isn’t a part of Kevin Feige‘s Marvel empire.

As per EW, since Madame Web is being distributed by Sony, it’s not part of Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe. But not to worry, despite not being a part of the MCU, Dakota Johnson’s movie is technically part of a multiverse of its own. Since Sony has released a number of movies in its live-action universe of Marvel characters, like Venom and Morbius, which are sort of connected to Spider-Man (but not in a real way), even Madame Web becomes a part of a multiverse.
