    By the look of it, pretty sure it will be Julia Carpenter's version, not Cassandra Webb.

    Yeah, she's definitely too young to be the original one, but the right age to be the legacy character.

    Young enough to have the character continue to show up in future movies and not get recast, and is also a pretty good actress too at that. See no reason why not, if Sony is really going to go through with this.

    Also, let´s be honest, not only are they probably gonna use this movie to spin-off basically INFINITE films about alternate Spider-Men, they´re gonna want her to show up in the next Spider-Man trilogy, lol.

    This seems to be true based on Deadline's info:

    Insiders say due to her psychic sensory powers, she is essentially Sony’s version of Doctor Strange.
    So Sony wants a magic or magic adjacent user of their own to control the Spider-Verse and Madame Web is the one who best fits the bill. She may also be able to "fix" the spell placed at the end of No Way Home if ever needed.

    They are really trying to force this Spidey Cinematic Universe.

    Ignoring the concept of "Sony is trying to push a Madame Web spinoff movie", I think Dakota Johnson is actually a great casting for Julia Carpenter. With that said I'd much rather see her as Spider-Woman/Arachne.

    From the MCU thread-

    I'd prefer Clone Conspiracy or Ends of the Earth being used if they want a team up film. Spider-Island works if you wanna bring in the spider people. I don't care about the Spiderverse that much. It looses appeal after awhile.

    Euphoria star (and Zendaya's co-star on the show) Sydney Sweeney joins Dakota Johnson in Madame Web

    Looks like the rumors of this being a female character team-up movie might be true. Could Sweeney be playing one of Black Cat or Spider-Gwen?

    I really really hope she's playing Black Cat. She's born to play Felicia! She has the look, the gravitas and the sex appeal.
    A picture would last longer darling...

    Even then how would she even interact w/ Peter since he's in the MCU and the Venom/Morbius/Web aren't IIRC

    I can see that otherwise
