The recently released trailer for Madame Web features an origin story setup for the eponymous character as well as several Spider-Woman characters, including Sydney Sweeney as Julia Carpenter. But perhaps what people will remember most from the video is Dakota Johnson’s line from Cassandra Webb: “He was in the Amazon with my mother when she was researching spiders right before she died.”
The Internet quickly turned the Madame Web dialogue into a meme. For example, people have shared how hilarious the line is when it comes from other famous movie characters, like Luther in Mission: Impossible or even at the end of Chinatown. Check out some of our favorites below:

The “he” in the line concerns Ezekiel Sims, played by Tahar Rahim (Napoleon). Ezekiel appears to be Madame Web’s main villain in the film, even donning what looks like an evil Spider-Man costume.
The Madame Web trailer focuses on Cassandra as a paramedic who can see the future. The other main cast members – in addition to Johnson, Sweeney and Rahim – are Emma Roberts, Isabela Merced, Celeste O’Connor and Adam Scott. The director is SJ Clarkson, who has previously directed episodes of Succession, Jessica Jones and The Defenders. She also co-wrote the screenplay with Claire Parker.
The Spider-Man spin-off is scheduled to hit theaters on February 14, 2024.
