Since the actress likes to probe the franchise as Spider-woman, it is not intricate for the MCU to insert the character in the franchise, which is now exploring the multiverse. As in movies like  Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of  Madness, Spider-Man No Way Home reveals that anything is possible in the multiverse. Even though the fans have divided opinions about her recent plans to join the MCU and her Spider-Women role, her extravagant talent in acting in Euphoria,  made her one of the most popular actresses in Hollywood. This is more than enough for the MCU to incorporate her character into the phenomenal franchise.

The movie Madame Web features Dakota Johnson in the titular role, along with an impressive cast featuring characters from the Spider-Man comics. As Sony expands its superhero lineup with characters like Tom Hardy’s Venom and Jared Leto’s Morbius, expectations from Madame Web are high.

It will be interesting to see how the upcoming film manages to balance the roles among an impressive cast. Despite the lackluster performance of recent superhero films at the box office, Sweeney is confident that Madame Web will buck the trend and amaze viewers. In jest, she says, “I think it’s different from what people expect a superhero movie to be.”
