Actress Sydney Sweeney has just been announced to be joining the cast of the upcoming SONY Spider-Man spin-off, Madame Web. The Washington state born actress will be joining Dakota Johnson in the first female lead solo film connected with the SONY Spider-Man Universe.
Sydney Sweeney began her acting career in 2009 in low budget horror films like Zombies of Mass Destruction, The Ward and Spiders 3D. The actress Gaines mainstream success in 2018 with Netflix series Everything Sucks!, Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale and and HBO’s Sharp Objects mini series. She also appeared in other shows like Euphoria and The White Lotus. She even appeared in 2019’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.
Even though her role hasn’t been confirmed some fans have speculated that she may appear as Felicia Hardy aka Black Cat; Even causing “Black Cat” to trend on Twitter. Previously it was suspected that Anya-Taylor Joy would be playing the character but since there has been no news on that front fans now believe Sydney will be putting on the black latex outfit.
With SONY’s push to expand their Spider-Man Cinematic Universe they keep adding more names to the lineup. Besides the two Venom films and the upcoming Morbius and Kraven the Hunter films other names like Jackpot, Nightwatch, Silk, Prowler and Silver Sable have come up in conversation.
SONY doesn’t really have any reason to slow down. With Spider-Man: No Way Home making over $1.7 Billion at the Global Box Office they will definitely be riding the bandwagon. SONY’s once struggling film division has made a comeback with film like No Way Home and Ghostbusters: Afterlife.
If Sydney Sweeney is indeed playing Felicia Hardy in the Madame Web film then you can expect them to set up a Black Cat spin-off film for the future. Let’s hope they don’t go overboard like they did with The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
