Madame Web was disappointing for a plethora of reasons, one being the dialogues were poorly written. In spite of the backlash, Lorenzo di Bonaventura, the producer of the Marvel film is hopeful that the film will produce a sequel, which is surprisingly optimistic. The Marvel fans were surprised by the statement and expressed their surprise and disappointment on social media.

Madame Web’s Producer is Optimistic For a Sequel in The Future

Madame Web tells the origin story of Cassie Webb aka Madame Web, portrayed by Dakota Johnson, who has the powers of a clairvoyant. The film featured big names like Syndey Sweeney Isabela Merced, and many more. Though their performances were commendable, that was not enough to save the film from having a disappointing performance at the box office and getting bombarded with negative reviews from the fans and critics.

Despite everything, during an exclusive interview with Discussing Film, Lorenzo di Bonaventura, the producer of the film was asked if he sees the future of Sydney Sweeney, Isabela Merced, and Celeste O’Connor’s characters in a spin-off or a potential sequel. The producer answered,

“What’s great about their characters is that, funny enough, there’s probably more comic book material written about the various Spider-Women than Madame Web herself. They each have their own comic books. So, hopefully, coming out of this first experience with Madame Web, the audience is going to embrace us enough to be able to tell the next story.”

To further support his proposal of a sequel, Bonaventura said,

“You can take those three characters much further along in the next story, and Madame Web still hasn’t mastered all of her skills either. If we got to do a sequel, one of the interesting things we would be able to see is Madame Web trying to master her new powers and often failing. So, we now realize the downside of having these abilities. I think that would make for good, dramatic material where the person is still learning what they’re doing.”

Even though the proposal of a sequel was followed by a justifiable explanation, the fans did not have it, as they had no hope left for the film, and hearing the news of a sequel they were surprised and hoped that the idea never come to life.
