The Madame Web trailer left many confused as to whether they were supposed to take that bit of information — “He was in the Amazon with my mom when she was researching spiders right before she died” — seriously. Ask Dakota and she doesn’t seem to mind. In an interview with the Huffington Post, when the actor was asked if he remembered the line going viral. “I have no idea what that’s about,” she asked, then added, “Isn’t some sentence out of context…out of context?”
A movie generated by AI?
Dakota also hosted Saturday Night Live last month, where she introduced Madame Web in a rather curious way. “I have a new film coming up. It’s called Madame Web. It is in the Marvel Universe and also stars Sidney Sweeney. So, it’s kind of like AI generating the perfect movie of your boyfriend,” she joked.
Why he hated filming The Office
Dakota didn’t mince words when she said how much she hated filming The Office. The actor made a brief appearance in the series finale of The Office. She plays Dakota, a young accountant hired by Dwight Schrute (Ryan Wilson) right after Kevin Malone (Brian Baumgartner) is fired. Speaking to Seth Meyers, Dakota said: “It was honestly the worst time of my life. I loved this show [The Office] so much, And they were like, “Do you want to be in the series finale?” I said “Sure” thinking I’d show up in about half a day. I’ve been there two weeks and I’m barely into the fucking show. There’s been a strange dynamic that’s been going on for the last 10 years. Some people weren’t talking to each other, and I walk in like, “I’m so excited to be here!” and nobody wanted to talk to me. Nobody gave an af**k.
What did the Scarlet Witch tell her
Then, in an interview with L’Officiel USA, Dakota Johnson shared that she ran into Elizabeth Olsen, who plays the Scarlet Witch in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This happened right after she was signed on for the title role for Madame Web. Did she ask how this experience was? What was their exchange? Dakota kept it low-key and said, “When I got the part of Madam Webb, I ran into Lizzie Olson in the hotel lobby and talked to her about it for a little bit and that was helpful. She said she had a great time and…she seemed very relaxed, so that was comforting.
Dakota also shared how excited she is to work with blue screen for CGI effects. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actor said: “I’ve never done a movie where you’re on a blue screen and there’s fake explosions and someone says ‘Explosion!’ and you act like there’s an explosion. This was absolutely psychotic to me. I was like, “I don’t know if this is going to be any good at all! I hope I did a good job!'”
In the same interview, she also talked about her stunt driving for the film. “I got to do a day of stunt work, and I’m really good at it, it seems!” Johnson exclaimed, speaking to EW via Zoom in January. “I mean, I can do some really wild things with a car. I drove an ambulance. I drove a taxi. I drove everything in the movie – except flying through the air and exiting a building. But other than that, I’m like, ‘Watch out, Tom Cruise,'” she said.
The official synopsis for Madame Web reads: “In a departure from the typical genre, Madame Web tells the self-contained origin story of one of Marvel publishing’s most enigmatic heroines. The tense thriller stars Dakota Johnson as Cassandra Webb, a Manhattan paramedic who develops the ability to see the future… and realizes she can use that insight to change it. Forced to confront revelations about her past, she forms a bond with three young women destined for powerful destinies… if they can all survive a deadly present.” The February 14 issue also stars Sydney Sweeney, Isabella Merced, Celeste O’Connor and Tahar Rahim.
