Dakota Johnson: Making Madame Web Was ‘Wild,’ Reveals Filming Has Wrapped
Not too much is known about Sony’s upcoming Madame Web movie, but star Dakota Johnson revealed in a recent interview that filming has wrapped. The actress also spoke about the experience of playing a superhero.
In a recent interview with Variety, Johnson revealed that initial filming had wrapped and described the “wild experience” of getting to film a superhero film.
“It was a wild experience,” said Johnson. “I don’t think you can be prepped to go into anything like that, but I learned so much. It’s a completely different way of making films, you know? And then, I went into making one of my company’s tiny, tiny little movies right after, so I got a real taste of different kinds of cinema last year.”
Sony’s Madame Web is being led by Dakota Johnson as the titular Spider-Man character. Joining Johnson are Sydney Sweeney (Euphoria), Celeste O’Connor (Ghostbusters: Afterlife), Isabela Merced (Transformers: The Last Knight), and Emma Roberts (American Horror Story), along with Golden Globe nominee Tahar Rahim, Mike Epps (The Upshaws), and Adam Scott (Severance).
Created by writer Denny O’Neil and artist John Romita Jr. in 1980, Madame Web is a blind psychic that has become a major player in the world of Spider-Man due to her ties to “The Great Web,” a multiversal construct that ties all “Spider” characters together across the multiverse.
Madame Web is being directed by S.J. Clarkson (Jessica Jones) from a screenplay written by Morbius scribes Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless.
