Sydney Sweeney, Madame Web’s star, is reportedly going to play Julia Carpenter in the forthcoming Sony Spider-Man Universe movie.
Euphoriastar Sydney Sweney’s character has been revealed in the upcoming Sony Spider-Man Universe film Madame Web.
Jeff Sneider, a trusted industry insider and host of The Hot Mic podcast says that Sweeney will portray “the second” Spider-Woman in Madame Web. Marvel Comics’ second In-Continuity Spider-Woman, Julia Carpenter, was Jessica Drew’s successor.
