The web of Madame Web expands. The SUMC is about to undergo a big expansion next year. COVID slowed its growth and delayed its films and it’s only managed to have two major releases since 2018. But, starting next year the SUMC will have two major films: Kraven The Hunter and Madame Web.
Madame Web is probably the most intriguing of the upcoming SUMC projects. It has been described as “Sony’s version of Doctor Strange”. Right now not much else is known about the film besides the cast and crew. Additionally, filming will start very soon. Dakota Johnson and Sydney Sweeney are starring in key roles. While SJ Clarkson is directing. And now we can add yet another person to that list of cast and crew.
Isabela Merced Joins Madame Web
Deadline has revealed that Isabela Merced has joined the cast of Madame Web. Merced is the latest star to join the cast. Most recently, Celeste O’Connor joined the film. Currently, her role is unknown. Merced is best known for playing Dora in the recent live-action Dora The Explorer movie and for her role in Netflix’s Sweet Girl.
Merced is a good get for the film. While the Sony films are of questionable quality, they always have a solid cast. Without a doubt, Merced give a good performance and have excellent chemistry with the rest of the cast. In regards to her role, perhaps she is playing Anya Corazon, who is one of many heroes that used the name Spider-Girl. However, it really is too early to know for certain. Perhaps, Sony will formally announce the cast and their roles at SDCC this year.
