Our Imaginary Boyfriend Adam Scott Joins Cast of Sony’s ‘Madame Web’

Severance star and forever-in-our-hearts Ben Wyatt actor Adam Scott has joined the cast of Sony’s latest Marvel movie, Madame Web. While his role is being kept under wraps, Scott will join previously announced stars Dakota Johnson (Persuasion), as well as Sydney Sweeney (Euphoria), Celeste O’Connor (Ghostbusters: Afterlife), Isabela Merced (Dora The Explorer), Emma Roberts (Scream Queens) and Tahar Rahim (A Prophet). The film is being directed by S.J. Clarkson (Jessica Jones, Succession).

In the comics, Madame Web has been depicted as an elderly woman named Cassandra Webb, with clairvoyant and precognitive mutant abilities that she uses to “help” Spider-Man and other spider-heroes. But given the casting of the decidedly not elderly Dakota Johnson in the title role, it’s unclear what Sony plans to do with the character. Web has the ability to pass her power off to others, which she does with Julia Carpenter, aka the second Spider-Woman. It’s unclear if and how Carpenter would connect to Olivia Wilde’s own planned Spider-Woman movie, which is rumored to feature original Spider-Woman Jessica Drew.
