With Venom: Let There Be Carnage and Morbius leading to mixed results, many are interested to see how Sony continues with its Spider-Man spin-off universe. One of these ventures is the upcoming Madame Web, bringing together an all-star cast headed by Dakota Johnson.
The film suffered a slight delay to October 6, 2023, which should give the filmmakers more time to iron out all the kinks.
With filming now officially making headway, fans have gotten the smallest of glimpses at what this peculiar Sony picture has in store. Previous images from Madame Web’s set revealed the first look at Dakota Johnson, who some believe appears to resemble a particular version of her comic counterpart.
Now, set photos provided the first peek at another member of Madame Web’s cast.
Adam Scott Spotted on Madame Web Set
The Parks and Recreation star was recently announced to be boarding the expansive cast of the film in an undisclosed role, joining Dakota Johnson, Sydney Sweeney, Emma Roberts, and more in Sony's Spider-Man Universe.
The full images of Scott on set, as shared by Twitter user @ledtasso, can be seen below:
Who is Adam Scott in Madame Web?
With Parks and Recreation being among the biggest sitcoms of all time, and Severance having proven greatly successful as of late, excitement is high for Adam Scott to join the Marvel world. Granted, many were hoping it would be in the MCU under the watch of Marvel Studios, but Sony's Spider-Man Universe will have to do.
Madame Web has close connections to all corners of the SpiderVerse, which has led many to believe other Spider-Man-related characters could appear in her solo flick. Euphoria's Sydney Sweeney has already been speculated to be playing Gwen Stacy, aka Spider-Gwen, in this universe.
Looking at the set photos of Scott, there's no denying he closely resembles an older Peter Parker - Tom Holland has often been seen wearing a similar blue shirt with a white t-shirt underneath. Depending on whether Scott appears in Venom and Morbius' universe or elsewhere in the Multiverse, perhaps he could be the Spider-Man of Sony's universe going forward.
Scott is of a similar age to Jared Leto and Tom Hardy, which may place him well to face off against Venom and Morbius if that were to be the case. That's not to say Scott playing Peter Parker, or even having a future with Sony, is by any means a certainty, but as Sony continues to build a universe, it still needs a Spider-Man to exist in that world.
Madame Web hits theaters on October 6, 2023.
