New images have surfaced from the filming of the Madame Web movie, and they may tease the fact that Adam Scott could play a top superhero.
New set photos from Madame Web offer the first look at the mysterious character of Adam Scott. After the success of the various Spider Man movies, Sony is looking to expand its own shared Marvel Universe with new feature films based on comic book characters. Venom, venom: let there be carnage, and Morbius marked Sony’s first forays into the larger live-action Spider-Verse, and the studio has since doubled down on its commitment to developing a film franchise by announcing several more spin-off films, including Madame Web, Kraven the hunterand El Muerto.
Madame Web is written by Morbius writers Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama, with Jessica Jones director SJ Clarkson directs. After almost a year of casting, it was announced that Fifty shades of Grey Star Dakota Johnson is reportedly directing the film, although full details of her role have not been revealed. In the following months, Madame Web added Sydney Sweeney, Celeste O’Connor, Isabela Merced, Tahar Rahim, Emma Roberts, Mike Epps and Scott to the cast, with filming beginning July 11, 2022. Until recently, plot and character details were for the mostly secret, but with production underway, fans were able to get a feel for the film.
The Twitter account Marvel News shared some new set photos from Madame Web. The footage shows Scott apparently filming scenes for his as-yet-undisclosed character. The images come after a previous video apparently revealed that Johnson could play Julia Carpenter in Madame Web. Take a look at the images below.
Interestingly, Scott’s outfit is reminiscent of the attire of various incarnations of Peter Parker in Sony’s Spider-Man franchises. Previous Madame Web set photos teased a 2000s setting for the film, leading many to believe the movie could be set in the same universe as Sam Raimi’s original Spider Man trilogy, with Tobey Maguire presumably appearing as the beloved web-slinger. But Maguire’s appearance in Madame Web could result in legal repercussions with Disney/Marvel or creative challenges, so Sony could use the concept of the multiverse to introduce a new Spider-Man for its spin-off movies in the future. Since Madame Web is essentially a clairvoyant who can see into the backbone of the Multiverse, the Web of Life and Fate, this gives Sony the freedom to choose from any version of Parker, with the awareness that other Peters still exist in parallel universes.
New images of Scott’s characters indicate that the studio could take advantage of this opportunity. While there’s no way to confirm that Scott is playing a Peter Parker, it’s still a possibility given that it would be hard to follow Madame Web’s origin story without Spidey. As of now, the movie is in the initial stages of production, but fans can expect to hear a bit more about Adam Scott’s character in Madame Web if the supply of still photos and videos continues.
