10 MCU Roles Perfect For Sydney Sweeney After Madame Web’s Failure

  • Sydney Sweeney portrayed Julia Cornwall's Spider-Woman in Madame Web.
  • Sydney Sweeney could redeem herself after Madame Web's failure by taking a new role in the MCU proper.
  • Sydney Sweeney would be perfect for Marvel Comics characters such as Black Cat, Emma Frost, Kitty Pryde and Gwen Stacy, among others.
Following her portrayal of Julia Cornwall's Spider-Woman in Madame Web, Sydney Sweeney may have a chance to redeem herself if she takes on a new role in the MCU proper. Best known for roles in Euphoria, The White Lotus and Sharp Objects, Sydney Sweeney made her superhero debut in Sony's Spider-Man Universe's Madame Web. Alongside Dakota Johnson, Isabela Merced and Celeste O'Connor, Sweeney debuted as Julia Cornwall, one of the three girls that Cassandra Webb saves from Ezekiel Sims. However, Sweeney didn't utilize her full potential in Madame Web, which was named an "embarrassing mess" by critics (via Radio Times).
On the contrary to her role in Madame Web, Sydney Sweeney is a very talented performer, so she perhaps deserves another shot at a superhero career. This could perhaps see her abandon Sony's Spider-Man Universe and join the MCU proper, which comes with a great deal more credibility. Marvel Studios is about to introduce several new heroes into live-action, with projects including the MCU's X-Men reboot, Spider-Man 4, Blade, and more premiering soon. This means that there are many Marvel Comics characters perfect for Sydney Sweeney to bring to the MCU, allowing her to redeem herself from Madame Web's failure.

Director S.J. Clarkson Release Date February 14, 2024 Distributor(s) Sony Pictures Releasing Related Madame Web Movie Cast & Marvel Character Guide Madame Web, which is part of Sony's Spider-Man Universe, features a star-studded ensemble cast filled with famous actors in surprising Marvel roles. 10 Marvel Studios Could Recast Sydney Sweeney As Felicia Hardy’s Black Cat Black Cat Is One Of Spider-Man's Most Prominent Love Interests In Marvel Comics Close Felicia Hardy's Black Cat has been heavily rumored to be appearing in the MCU's Spider-Man 4, as she could be the perfect character to introduce in the wake of 2021's Spider-Man: No Way Home. Sydney Sweeney is a great choice to portray this femme fatale, particularly since her brief depiction of Julia Cornwall's Spider-Woman in Madame Web also demonstrated some of the qualities perfect for Black Cat. Originally a supervillain in Marvel Comics, Black Cat became one of Spider-Man's most prominent love interests, and a powerful antiheroine, so this casting could give Sydney Sweeney a major role in the MCU.
Black Cat was originally supposed to team up with Silver Sable in a Sony-produced project, Silver & Black, but the project has been in development limbo for several years.
9 Sydney Sweeney Could Be Charlotte Witter, Another Spider-Woman With Madame Web Ties Charlotte Witter Is The Granddaughter Of Madame Web In Marvel Comics Introduced in 1999's Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 2) #5, Charlotte Witter is the granddaughter of Cassandra Webb, a.k.a. Madame Web, so Sydney Sweeney being cast as Witter could hark back to her Madame Web history. Witter was experimented on by Doctor Octopus, who transformed her into a human-spider hybrid and became her archenemy in Marvel Comics. This would put a great spin on Sydney Sweeney's Madame Web role, as Charlotte Witter's Spider-Woman is a powerful and sinister villain in Marvel Comics, allowing Sydney Sweeney to show more of her range, as well as breaking open the Spider-Verse in the MCU proper.
8 Deadpool & Wolverine Could Tease Magik In The MCU Magik Was Previously Played By Anya Taylor-Joy In The New Mutants (2020) Sydney Sweeney doesn't need to portray a Spider-Man-related character if she's brought into the MCU, particularly since Marvel Studios is preparing to introduce the X-Men. Illyana Rasputin, a.k.a. Magik, is the mutant sister to Colossus who has the ability to teleport using interdimensional discs, though she is also a powerful sorceress, meaning she'd fit nicely into the MCU's Doctor Strange franchise. Stefan Kapičić is reprising his role of Colossus from Fox's X-Men Universe in Marvel Studios' upcoming Deadpool & Wolverine, so the opportunity is there for the MCU's official Magik to be teased, perhaps with Sydney Sweeney in the role.

Here's why she deserves a role in the Multiverse Saga. 7 Marvel Comics’ Blonde Phantom Already Has Connections In The MCU Blonde Phantom Was One Of Marvel Comics' First Female Heroes Marvel Studios has proven several times that heroes with no superhuman abilities can still hold their own alongside the MCU's more powerful superheroes. This trend could be repeated if Sydney Sweeney debuts as the MCU's Blonde Phantom. Louise Grant Mason, first seen in 1946's All Select Comics #11, was one of Marvel Comics' first female heroes, despite having no superhuman abilities whatsoever. This would be a great role for Sydney Sweeney, who has demonstrated her ability to play powerful female characters, superhero or not. In the 1980s, the Blonde Phantom became She-Hulk's sidekick, which could be established in the MCU.
6 Sydney Sweeney Could Portray Emma Frost In The MCU’s X-Men Reboot Emma Frost Has Become One Of The X-Men's Most Powerful Leaders Close Since her Marvel Comics debut in 1980's The Uncanny X-Men #129, Emma Frost has evolved from a supervillain into a powerful superhero and one of the X-Men team's most significant leaders. Sydney Sweeney perhaps has the perfect appearance to portray Emma Frost in the MCU, and this would give her a chance to show off some remarkable outfits, as Emma Frost is not only known as a powerful diamond-skinned telepath, but is also one of Marvel Comics' most fashionable heroes. Sydney Sweeney being cast as Emma Frost would set her up for a lengthy and varied future in the MCU.

While she was only alive in Marvel Comics between 1972 and 1982, this could be a brilliant character for Sydney Sweeney to take on, which could see her join the MCU proper in Marvel Studios' upcoming Blade reboot. Van Helsing and Blade fought together, creating a connection that could be explored in Phase 6, though this could end in tragedy for Sweeney, as Van Helsing was killed by Wolverine after turning into a vampire herself.
4 Sydney Sweeney Could Reinvent Kitty Pryde’s Shadowcat For The MCU Kitty Pryde Can Connect The X-Men & The MCU's Cosmic Stories Kitty Pryde is another prominent member of the X-Men that Sydney Sweeney would be a perfect match for, but this casting could also see Sweeney bridge the gap between the MCU's mutants and the franchise's more cosmic storylines. While the age difference between Sydney Sweeney and Chris Pratt would make Kitty Pryde and Peter Quill's romance questionable, Pryde briefly became a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy, which could be great to explore in the wake of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Kitty Pryde is a fan-favorite hero in Marvel Comics, so Sydney Sweeney's casting would be inspired.
3 The MCU's Street-Level Stories May Have Set Up Dakota North Dakota North Has Connections To Daredevil, Luke Cage & Spider-Man In Marvel Comics Similarly to Blonde Phantom, Marvel Comics' Dakota North doesn't have any superhuman abilities to speak of, but she is still a skilled hand-to-hand combatant and is fluent in many languages. This makes her an asset in the stories of popular heroes such as Daredevil, Luke Cage, Spider-Man and even Captain America in Marvel Comics, and since Marvel Studios is putting more focus on the MCU's street-level stories, Dakota North would fit right in. This would maybe be an unorthodox casting for Sydney Sweeney, but Dakota North would give her the opportunity to portray a more stoic, hard-hitting, and action-heavy personality.​​​​​​
The character of Luke Jacobson, who debuted in 1986's Dakota North #1, was the inspiration behind Griffin Matthews' Luke Jacobson, a fashion designer, in 2022's She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.
2 Sydney Sweeney’s Gwen Stacy Could Be Spider-Man’s New MCU Love Interest Gwen Stacy Could Be Introduced In The MCU's Spider-Man 4 Close After Zendaya's MJ forgot Tom Holland's Peter Parker in Spider-Man: No Way Home, Marvel Studios may debut Gwen Stacy as Spider-Man's next love-interest, and this may be the perfect role for Sydney Sweeney. In Marvel Comics, Gwen Stacy was the first romantic interest for the wall-crawler, so it would be great to see this story unfold in the MCU, and since Sweeney and Holland are similar in age, this isn't outside the realm of possibility. It's also possible that Sydney Sweeney could portray the live-action version of Gwen Stacy's Spider-Woman, since Hailee Steinfeld already portrays Kate Bishop in the MCU.
Hailee Steinfeld voices Gwen Stacy's Spider-Woman in Sony's animated Spider-Verse franchise, so if the character crosses over into live-action, she will likely need to be portrayed by a different actor.
1 Sydney Sweeney Could Have Another Shot At Julia Carpenter’s Spider-Woman Marvel Studios Can Do Sydney Sweeney's Madame Web Hero Justice While Sydney Sweeney certainly has the talent to portray any number of these brilliant Marvel Comics characters, it would be fantastic to see her have another shot at bringing Spider-Woman to life. Madame Web's Julia Cornwall was based on Marvel Comics' Julia Carpenter, who became Spider-Woman after unknowingly being experimented on by the Commission. Madame Web failed to capture the full range of Julia Carpenter's personality or abilities, so it would be great to see Sydney Sweeney portray a more comic-accurate version of this superhero in future Spider-Man stories, particularly since she could eventually become the MCU's own Madame Web.
