Dakota Johnson Responds To Madame Web "Spiders In The Amazon" Meme, Tries To Cut Through The Jokes

  • Madame Web movie faces potential ridicule and disappointment, following the negative reception of Morbius.
  • Dakota Johnson, the star of Madame Web, dismisses the mocking meme about spiders in the Amazon as "silly."
  • The movie explores the more mystical aspects of Spider-Man lore and will feature multiple Spider-People.
Madame Web star Dakota Johnson has responded to the "spiders in the Amazon" meme that has been making the rounds and is already attempting to cut through the jokes. Madame Web is the first of three of Sony's Spider-Man Universe movies releasing this year - which is two more than the MCU - and will hit theaters on Valentine's Day, February 14. Dakota Johnson stars as the titular clairvoyant and will be joined by several Spider-People as the upcoming Marvel movie delves into the more mystical side of Spider-Man lore.
In an interview with @huffpostUK, shared by @chazzers_ via Twitter/X, Dakota Johnson was asked about the meme that pokes fun at the line "he was in the Amazon with my mom when she was researching spiders right before she died," to which Johnson responded with confusion, stating "what a silly thing." The somewhat awkward sentence in question was quickly picked up on and began propagating via copypasta memes as audiences fear Madame Web will follow Morbius in overall quality - a movie that has been heavily ridiculed since its release in 2022. The interview can be seen below:

It was also on the receiving end of several derisive memes - the most famous of which referencing the nonexistent line "it's Morbin' time." The writing for the movie was widely criticized, and there are fears that Madame Web will follow suit. The cynical memes surrounding the "spiders in the Amazon" line already portend a negative reception weeks before the movie has even hit theaters.
Unfortunately for Sony, this could harm ticket sales. Morbius was the worst-performing movie in Sony's Spider-Man Universe and may have left a sour taste that Madame Web is now under pressure to remedy. Yet this single line from the trailer may have compounded the damage done by Morbius, dissuading audiences before it has had a chance to shine. Conversely, given that Madame Web is the first of Sony's shared universe movies to feature spider-people, this may work in its favor - but box office projections aren't looking promising.
