Sydney Sweeney Interview On Making Her First Marvel Film

Euphoria star Sydney Sweeney has once again opened up about joining Sony Pictures’ next Marvel film, Madame Web. Sweeney describes landing her mysterious role as a complete dream come true, especially when she has been a fan of the genre for a long time.

Sweeney revealed that she looks for roles that are “completely different from one another” and come with multiple kinds of challenges. She also wants to “shock people” by playing characters that are unexpected for her:

“I like to try and find characters that are challenging for me in multiple different ways, and are completely different from one another. I want to continue to shock people with the characters that I play when they don’t expect that I would choose that next.”

As for Madame Web specifically, the actress shared that she’s reading “a bunch of comic books” to prepare for her role. On top of that, she’s been a fan of both Marvel and Sony’s movie universes and admitted that she loves having the opportunity to join the story on the big screen:

“I am. I’ve been ordering a bunch of comic books. There’s a lot to learn. I’ve always been a really big fan of all of the Marvel and Sony Universe movies. I’ve grown up watching them all, and I’ve been engulfed in the entire world my entire life, so being able to be a part of that is such an incredible, incredible thing.”

“I grew up watching Marvel movies, and superheroes are just the coolest thing ever,” Sweeney shared. “So I just dreamt of being able to be a part of something bigger than life itself. And that’s what I feel like I’m getting to be a part of with Madame Web.”

Sony’s Madame Web will be led by Dakota Johnson as the titular Spider-Man character. Joining Johnson are young actresses Sydney Sweeney (Euphoria), Celeste O’Connor (Ghostbusters: Afterlife), and Isabela Merced (Transformers: The Last Knight) along with Golden Globe nominee Tahar Rahim.

Created by writer Denny O’Neil and artist John Romita Jr. in 1980, Madame Web is a blind psychic that has become a major player in the world of Spider-Man due to her ties to “The Great Web,” a multiversal construct that ties all “Spider” characters together across the multiverse.

Madame Web will be directed by S.J. Clarkson (Jessica Jones) from a screenplay written by Morbius scribes Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless.

Morbius is now available on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD. Stay tuned for all the latest news on Madame Web, Euphoria star Sydney Sweeney’s role in the film, and the rest of Sony’s plans for their Spider-Man universe and other Marvel movies
