A mysterious new Spider-Man character is revealed for Sony’s Madame Web movie thanks to action scene set photos featuring Dakota Johnson.
A new Spider-Man character is revealed in set photos of a Madame Web action scene. Sony’s Spider-Man Universe began with Venom‘s success in 2018, which made over $800 million worldwide and gave Sony the confidence to make more Marvel movies. Madame Web is one of several upcoming projects using the Spider-Man villains and characters the studio has access to. Dakota Johnson stars as Madame Web, but it is not confirmed which version she is going to play from the comics. Other cast members include Sydney Sweeney, Emma Roberts, Adam Scott, and Isabela Merced.
Production on Madame Web has been underway for the last few months, and the filming has resulted in several behind-the-scenes looks at the movie arriving online. Pictures have shown Dakota Johnson and Adam Scott’s characters working as paramedics, while there have also been glimpses of Emma Roberts’ pregnant character. Some others Madame Web seen photos have brought direct Spider-Man connections, such as references to The Daily Bugle. Sony has yet to confirm what universe Madame Web takes place in, as speculation suggests it could be a prequel to Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man movies.
There are now some potentially spoilery set photos from Madame Web floating around online courtesy of Just Jared. The photos show the stunt doubles for Johnson, O’Connor, and Tahar Rahim in an action scene. While Madame Web appears to be injured, O’Connor’s character is shown fighting Rahim’s character, who is notably wearing a superhero costume. The black suit with red lining looks like a new version of Spider-Man’s suit, but it is unconfirmed who the mysterious new character is from the comics.
Who Is The Spider-Man Character In The Madame Web Set Photos?
These new Madame Web set photos create a big question about who this mysterious Spider-Man character is in Sony’s Spider-Man Universe. Speculation is sure to focus heavily on identifying who Rahim could be playing. One popular guess at the moment is Kaine Parker, a clone of Peter Parker. The costume is not an exact match for Kaine Parker, but Madame Web could make some changes to the costume and his comic story to fit him into the movie. There is also speculation Madame Web‘s Spider-Man character is Ezekiel Sims, who has powers similar to Spider-Man. His turn wearing the Spider-Man suit resulted in a very different look than these photos present.
Given how secretive the Madame Web production has been and the vast number of Spider-Man-like characters in the comics, there are a lot of potential answers for who this Spider-Man character is. Sony could even combine multiple characters into one for the purposes of Madame Web‘s multiverse story. It likely will not become clear who this Spider-Man character is Madame Web is until the movie gets closer to its release. In any case, it seems that he will be an antagonist in the film.
