Dakota Johnson Admits She Hasn’t Watched ‘Madame Web’ Yet, But Would “Definitely” Return For Sequels

So, Madame Web is pretty terrible. Ironically for a movie about a character who is clairvoyant, I think everybody other than Sony saw that coming. And that probably includes star Dakota Johnson, who has looked disinterested during the press tour while taking casual shots at the production. She looks pretty disinterested in front of the camera, too. However, if Madame Web turns out to be a surprise hit, and who knows, maybe it will, then Johnson could be convinced to return for more.

She might want to watch the movie first, though.

In an interview with Magic Radio, Johnson admitted that she hasn’t actually watched Madame Web yet, stating  “I don’t know when I’ll see it. Someday.”

But if there are sequels, she might suit up as the Spider-hero once again, telling Total Film “If they want me to come back, then I definitely will. I have no idea what’s in store.”

Frankly, I don’t know why she would other than the paycheck. It didn’t look as if she was having a very good time, and has complained about shooting in front of so much blue screen and all of the many script rewrites. Johnson looks uncomfortable playing a superhero, a recognition she predicted when first receiving the script…

“I got sent this script, and I was like, ‘I don’t know about me being a superhero,’” Johnson said. “I was sort of mystified by her powers. I felt like, ‘Oh, I really would love to see that superhero. I would love to see a young woman whose superpower is her mind.’”

I’m going to make a prediction: Dakota Johnson will not be in a Madame Web sequel. There will be no Madame Web sequel at all, and Johnson will pretend this whole experience never happened.
