Sydney Sweeney is on the rise. After being one of the main stars in Euphoria and White Lotus, Sweeney has become one of the most talked about names in the industry. Now, Sweeney takes a big step in her career as she joins Dakota Johnson in Marvel and Sony’s new film Madame Web

In the comics, Madame Web is an elderly woman with myasthenia gravis, an autoimmune disease. Madame Web is paralyzed and needs a life support system to keep her alive. The system resembles a spider web, hence her clever name. She’s also clairvoyant and uses her skills to help Spider-Man and his colleagues, but never goes into battle herself. 

The rest of the cast remains unknown, but Sweeney will star alongside Johnson for the film. Sweeney’s role in the film is still unknown, but Johnson will take the title role of Madame Web. S.J. Clarkson, director of the darker Marvel series Jessica Jones and The Defenders, has been signed on to direct the feature film. Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, the writers for Marvel’s latest film Morbius, will write the screenplay. 

This will be the first comic adaptation to star a woman as the headlining role in Sony’s comic book history. Madame Web is only the first Spider-Man spinoff that we can expect to see, as the media company intends to expand its Marvel universe due to the success of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man series. 

Madame Web is not the only film Sweeney is set to star in. Currently, she’s filming alongside Halsey and Simon Rex for Bron Studios new film National Anthem. Sweeney has recently founded her own film company, Fifty-Fifty Films, which will take on the TV adaptation of Jessica Goodman’s novel They Wish They Were Us
