Dakota Johnson confirms that her upcoming Spider-Man universe spinoff movie, Madame Web, will begin filming in July, and the actor has been prepping.
Madame Web is scheduled to begin filming in July. Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson is leading the cast as the titular heroine in the upcoming movie set in the Sony Spider-Man Universe (SSU). Directed by Jessica Jones‘ S. J. Clarkson off a script by Kerem Sanga and Morbius duo Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, Madame Web marks the debut of SSU’s first female superhero. At the moment, it’s not known which version of the precognitive mutant will appear in the movie, although signs point towards Johnson playing Julia Carpenter, the protege of the original Madame Web, Cassandra Webb. Madame Web has a star-studded cast featuring Sydney Sweeney, Celeste O’Connor, Isabela Merced, and Tahar Rahim alongside Johnson. Recently, Scream Queens star Emma Roberts also boarded the movie.
On Tuesday, Vanity Fair confirmed that Madame Web will begin filming in July, with Johnson traveling to a secret location to commence production on the movie. Exact details about the filming schedule aren’t being disclosed at this point, although Johnson says that she will be bulking up for her first-ever action outing, and she hopes to do as many stunts as possible in the movie. In the words of the actress, Johnson say she “can probably do some Tom Cruise stuff.”
