Wait, Madame Internet Is a Interval Piece?

Ever since Sony revealed it was engaged on a solo film for Madame Web, people have had questions. Why her? How is that this going to hook up with whichever Spider-Man is swinging round now?

When you’ve watched the trailer, one of many questions could also be when this film is about. Superhero films usually preserve issues within the relative current, however Entertainment Weekly’s latest preview notes that Madame Internet is about in 2003. That successfully makes it the primary interval piece Spider-Man film we’ve ever gotten, and the primary mainstream superhero flick since 2020’s Marvel Lady 1984 to be set within the relative previous. (What’s it with women-led superhero films being set two or three a long time in the past?) And that is apparently a special 2003 than the one all of us lived via: at one level within the trailer, we see a New Yorker enjoying what’s clearly a PSP, which didn’t come out till 2005.

Why 2003? In response to leisure reporter Jeff Sneider, that’s a reshoots alternative. The movie was initially set within the 90s, the place we’d be taught this was set on the planet of the Andrew Garfield-led Wonderful Spider-Man films. However Sneider claims Sony then determined to vary to over to Tom Holland’s Peter Parker, then axed the 90s out of the movie completely upon realizing the timelines didn’t match up. If true, it paints the movie’s existence in an excellent weirder mild than earlier than. Adam Scott’s rumored to be enjoying a younger Ben Parker, and he is probably not the one approach we be taught which universe that is set in. Both approach, it’s in all probability going to be a bit clunky, as a result of Sony’s strategy to worldbuilding in these films is…well, y’know.

Madame Internet releases in theaters on February 14.
