Although it may be uncertain when Spider-Man will appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe again, Spider-Woman appears to be coming sooner than that.


Not in the MCU, of course, but in Sony’s increasingly crazy Marvel sub-universe, which began with Venom, included the meme-tastic Morbius, and now has a number of bizarre projects in the works, none of which, as of yet, appear to feature Spider-Man.


Sydney Sweeney, who played Julia Carpenter in the movie Euphoria, has stated that barring any unforeseen delays, she will be appearing in the upcoming Madame Web on February 16, 2024.


In the comic books, Carpenter develops into Spider-Woman, however, she is actually the second Spider-Woman—Jessica Drew being the first and better recognized.


Sweeney, on the other hand, is currently a huge enough figure that it seems likely that Sony will approach her for a standalone Spider-Woman feature after this, despite the fact that, according to the interview, she is merely “smiling knowingly” when the topic is posed. She has been studying comics for the role though, and she was thrilled to get it.



When Sweeney was initially cast in the movie, everyone questioned why Sony wouldn’t cast her as the Black Cat, Felicia Hardy, who is much more well-known. However, I assume that since the main plotlines centre on her relationship with Spider-Man, that may not work in a universe that as of yet, has no Spider-Man, which is getting weirder and weirder as time goes on.
