    Dakota Johnson’s ‘Madame Web’ Went Through Drastic Changes After She Signed The Project

    Madame Web‘, the fourth addition to Sony’s Spiderman Universe brings in three prominent Spider-Women from across the Spider-verse. The film stars Dakota Johnson in the titular role, along with Sydney Sweeney as Julia Cornwall and Celeste O’Connor as Mattie Franklin.

    However, with the ongoing superhero fatigue, ‘Madame Web’ faced harsh criticism with devasting reviews of the Spider-Man spin-off. Although Johnson escaped the eyes of criticism, the star has a lot to say about the Sony-marvel film.

    Madame Web‘ marks Dakota Johnson’s official entry into the superhero universe, after her breakthrough role in ‘Fifty Shades’ trilogy. She is playing the titular character Cassandra Webb who is a young paramedic who develops clairvoyant powers after a near-death experience while on the job.

    However, the actress revealed that she does not recollect if this was the original story or not, as it is not the script she read while signing for the film. While speaking with The Wrap, Johnson admitted that “there were drastic changes. And I can’t even tell you what they were.”

    While the film was not received positively by the critics, the actress faced a huge challenge while filming ‘Madame Web’, as her character was able to see the future, meaning that she had to shoot multiple versions of the same scene, but with only minute changes. Dakota Johnson felt that this process was rather exhausting and time-consuming, getting lost trying to keep in mind what scene they were shooting. 

    The ‘Persuasion’ actress explained the process saying, “It added so many different camera set-ups, like triple the amount of work. And it was very complex, and there’s only like minor differences between each version of the same scene, so it was like puzzle pieces, and really paying attention to what moment we’re in, and what angle we’re in, and continuity and things like that.” However, she is glad that SJ Clarkson, the director of the film had her back and guided her throughout the process.
