Intense Madame Web Set Photos Capture A Pivotal Moment In Its Origin Story

New set photos from Madame Web seem to have captured key moments in the character’s origin story.

In the comics, there have been several versions of Madame Web, and new rumors have stated that the character’s film adaptation will also see its main cast play multiple versions of Spider-Man’s clairvoyant. We know Dakota Johnson will be playing the “main” Madame Web, but any other actors who have been announced in the film’s cast are currently playing undisclosed characters. It was first reported that Johnson played Cassandra Webb, the lead version of Madame Web. However, based on her recent set photos featuring herself and co-star Adam Scott, that may not be the case anymore.

In the main comics, Cassandra Webb is a mutant, born blind and paralyzed. However, she gained telepathic abilities that allowed her to become clairvoyant. He was diagnosed with myasthenia gravis, an autoimmune disease that prevents him from walking and seeing because it is connected to a web-like life support system. Instead of prowling the streets alone, she guides others to do chores for her.

Sony likes to change their characters’ origins and powers with every SSU movie they make, but Johnson could instead play Julia Carpenter, who was Cassandra Webb’s protege in the comics. This change would be a huge departure from the character’s comic origins and place in the Marvel Universe, but, again, Sony likes to change things up and doesn’t necessarily care about tape accuracy or continuity. drawn.

Stills from the film from the Spider-Man Brasil Twitter account show Johnson’s character as a paramedic, alongside undisclosed protagonist Adam Scott. Although it is now assumed that the two are playing co-workers, since they are both paramedics. But Johnson doesn’t look like Cassandra Webb in these scenes, but someone else. And since Julia Carpenter is historically known as Webb’s protege, there’s reason to believe she’ll be the one to star.

After Cassandra Webb’s death in the comics, Julia Carpenter, a former Spider-Woman, gains her abilities and becomes the new Madame Web. If Johnson is playing Carpenter, that could mean Webb is either already dead or about to die, and the movie will follow her journey as she becomes Madame Web, while ignoring her Spider-Woman past. I have no idea how exactly they are going to do this, but this seems like the most plausible theory.

Since a Spider-Woman movie is in development, it wouldn’t make sense to cast Carpenter as a former Spider-Woman since the *main* character of this universe hasn’t been introduced. And so it’s easy to believe that Carpenter will first take on the mantle of Madame Web and become the SSU’s first Seer, while potentially battling multiple versions of the character played by Sydney Sweeney and Isabela Merced. Again, this is all pure speculation and could make for a very interesting movie.
