Well I’ll be damned, this is good casting. The huge news today is that Dakota Johnson will be playing Madame Web in Sony’s Marvel film, Madame Web!
From Deadline, here’s what the article said:
Following the massive success of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Sony is looking to to expand on its universe of Marvel characters as sources tell Deadline that Dakota Johnson is in talks to star in the studio’s Madame Web movie. S.J. Clarkson is on board to direct the pic. Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless penned the screenplay.
Sony execs have taken their time in figuring out who would land the title role, meeting with a number of A-listers. In the last two months, the list has been cut down, with Johnson gaining front-runner status right before the holiday.
I’m sure she will be playing the Julia Carpenter version of Madame Web, and not the usual old version of the character. I think Dakota Johnson will knock this role out of the park, but hopefully the script is good because it could be a hit or miss with Sony. Definitely going to be interesting to see what other information will come from this film.
