Famous for her part in HBO’s Euphoria, Sydney Sweeney has just spoken publicly about her participation in Sony’s next Madame Web film. Fans have been waiting since March 2022, when she was first confirmed as part of the film, for more information about her character. However, Sweeney’s casting as Julia Carpenter, the second Spider Woman, was only announced very recently.
Produced under S.J. Clarkson, who is well-known for her roles in Jessica Jones and The Defenders, has been cast as Madame Web in Sony’s live-action Spider-Man universe. Tom Hardy’s Venom films, Jared Leto’s Morbius, and Tom Holland’s Spider-Man films are all established parts of this shared canon. Kraven the Hunter, starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, is also in the works at Sony.
Sweeney expressed enthusiasm for the proposal but was unable to provide further specifics due to Sony’s strict secrecy policies. She spoke with Total Film magazine about her next film Madame Web, saying, “I couldn’t be more excited. I can’t wait to be able to talk about it.” She also spoke highly of her time on set with co-stars Dakota Fanning, Isabela Rossellini, and Celeste. Sweeney was excited to introduce the world to a cast of fierce and ferocious female protagonists.
The overall effect of Sydney Sweeney’s comments on her Madame Web appearance as Julia Carpenter has been to increase interest in the picture. The pairing of these two gifted actresses promises to be an intriguing addition to Sony’s superhero universe, and fans can’t wait to see it.
