Madame Webcast: All actors and characters

Madame Web will expand Sony’s Spider-Man universe. The film will soon be released in cinemas. Here’s everyone in the cast you need to know.

Ah, Madame Web – the most meme movie of 2024 yet. The Spider-Man spinoff (which is definitely not part of the MCU) caused quite a stir when its trailer dropped last year, when Dakota Johnson uttered the unexpected line: “He was in the Amazon with my mom when she was investigating like spiders, right? before she died.”

The man in question is the film’s villain, Ezekiel Sims, but it was Johnson’s awkward placement and deadpan delivery that caught the attention of the online community, leading to many memes – although the Madame Web star apparently got the memo has not received.

Of course, it’s all a joke, with some predicting that the SSU film, directed by SJ Clarkson, could fall into the “so bad it’s good” category. Plus, there are plenty of people in the cast to get excited about – so here are all the Madame Web actors and the characters they play.

Tahar Rahim joins the Madame Web cast as the villain, Ezekiel Sims. As we learned in the trailer, he went to the Amazon rainforest with Cassandra’s mother while researching spiders… not that you needed reminding.

In the comics, Ezekiel is a mysterious figure connected to the Spider-Totem, which led to him taking on powers similar to Spider-Man’s. Due to his fluctuating age in the trailer, we previously speculated whether this could mean that the movie version has the option to extend his age. Either way, he demonstrates Spider-Man-like abilities, including clinging to walls.
