New photos have been released from the set of Madame Web and they seem to offer a first glimpse of the movie’s villain. And if you’re wondering, yes, it looks like it Aaron Taylor-Johnsonbut it is not Kraven the Hunter to target Madame Web from Dakota Johnson, but the unknown character of Celeste O’Connor.
Neither is in costume, though Madame Web wears Julia Carpenter’s signature red jacket. As for that villain, it’s Tahar Rahim, and the actor is thought to be playing Ezekiel Sims. In the comics, he was an ally of Peter Parker, but ultimately showed him his true colors when it was revealed that he was only using Spider-Man to protect himself. If the recent plot leaks are true, this version wants to kill Mary Parker and prevent Peter from being born.
According to Just Jared, “A stuntman for the character of Celeste O’Connor was fighting a possible villain while a stuntman for the character of Dakota Johnson was lying on the injured beam, according to the photographers who took the photos.” Self Madame Web is going to explain why there is no Spider-Man in the reality inhabited by Venom And Morbius, this is definitely… a unique point of view. Let’s just hope it doesn’t negatively affect the spider’s web launcher in any way.MCUfor example revealing that he was sent there by Madame Web as a child (bad enough that poor Vulture is now stuck inMarvel universe by Sony). We’ll see but Ezekiel didn’t wear a costume in the comics, so this one in the photos is definitely a novelty. Here are the photos from the set:
