Yes, Marvel’s Madame Web is a ‘schlocky, janky’ disaster – but Dakota Johnson’s press tour is a joy | Film

To call Madame Web’s release a disaster would be a wild understatement. Not since Cats has a movie inspired such a combination of terrible reviews (the Guardian has variously described it as “dumb and schlocky”, an “unholy mess” and a “janky rip-off made by people afraid of legal action”) and consumer apathy.The miserable box office performance – by some distance, it has the lowest-grossing opening weekend of any Spidey-adjacent movie made this century – has killed off a potential franchise at birth. It has damaged the…

‘Madame Web’ is not saved by Dakota Johnson

By Lindsey Bahr | Associated Press There is a lot of pretty niche comic book mythology swirling around “Madame Web,” the inspiration for the newest of Sony’s “Spider-Man” spinoffs. This is a character who goes back to 1980 and whose powers of clairvoyance helped Peter Parker at some point. She’s elderly and blind and sits atop a web throne that keeps her alive. But to be honest, reading about her didn’t help give any more meaning or urgency to the Dakota Johnson movie that’s heading to theaters Wednesday. You’ve been…

Do you ever think sometimes the Marvel multiverse has gotten too big? Sure, those of us who spend way too much time online and know the difference between a Kree and Kraglin understand the complicated, corporate differences between, say, the MCU and Sony’s Marvel Universe, but anyone with the glamorous, busy life of a Hollywood star is forgiven for not having the time to take a crash-course in Marvel minutiae.

Madame Web review – Marvel’s junky spin-off is a tangled mess | Dakota Johnson

It was an inevitable collapse after a reign of such unwarranted length and unparalleled indulgence, superhero movies totalling eight a year during the 2010s, a lucrative yet tiresome stronghold.

Last year saw an overwhelming rejection (The Flash, Shazam 2, The Marvels, Ant-Man 3, Aquaman 2…

The Los Angeles premiere of Sony Pictures’ latest superhero film was no exception, as Johnson sported another sequined netted look to nod at her famous comic character. While a lot of people are talking about the sheer number, I’m actually more enamored with the rest of the Madame Web cast -- in particular, Sydney Sweeney’s complimentary black look. A lot of the comments this morning I’ve seen have really had to do with the…

But as any student of the extremely online will tell you, rarely can you manufacture these memes. They must happen naturally — catch us off guard with our defenses down so they can worm their way into our internet-addled brains and become a part of our cultural fabric (for at least as long as our attention spans will…
