MADAME WEB: In Less Than 24 Hours, One Cringe-Worthy Trailer Line Has Already Become A Popular Meme MADAME WEB: In Less Than 24 Hours, One Cringe-Worthy Trailer Line Has Already Become A Popular Meme

Our first look at Madame Web wasn't great, but the film is receiving plenty of attention on social media thanks to Dakota Johnson's "He was in the Amazon with my mom..." line becoming a meme. Check it out!

This...probably isn't the reaction to Madame Web that Sony Pictures was hoping for. 

The first trailer for the movie was released yesterday and, for the most part, it's drawn a negative reaction from fans. Like Morbius and Venom, it feels very much like a blockbuster made in the 2000s, a somewhat ironic turn of events given that Madame Web is set during that period.

You can read our full breakdown of the footage here, but we're guessing most of you won't be surprised to learn that a certain line in the trailer has become the subject of ridicule. 

We are, of course, referring to, "He was in the Amazon with my mom when she was researching spiders right before she died." It's a piece of exposition said by Dakota Johnson's Cassandra Webb as a means of better explaining her connection to the villainous Ezekiel Sims.

However, for whatever reason, it was delivered clunkily and just sounds dumb. That's an assessment many people seem to agree with because, as you can see below, the line has become a meme and is being mocked by fans Sony had probably hoped would instead be sharing their excitement for the movie. 

Will Madame Web and this line be the next Morbius and "It's Morbin' Time"? We'll have to wait and see. 

"'Meanwhile, in another universe...'" the synopsis begins, "In a switch from the typical genre, Madame Web tells the standalone origin story of one of Marvel publishing's most enigmatic heroines."

"The suspense-driven thriller stars Dakota Johnson as Cassandra Webb, a paramedic in Manhattan who may have clairvoyant abilities. Forced to confront revelations about her past, she forges a relationship with three young women destined for powerful futures...if they can all survive a deadly present."

SJ Clarkson directors from a screenplay she wrote with Claire Parker. Confirmed cast members include Dakota Johnson, Sydney Sweeney, Celeste O’Connor, Isabela Merced, Tahar Rahim, Mike Epps, Emma Roberts, and Adam Scott.

We believe the movie is still dated for February 16, 2024, in the U.S., but the trailers only say "Coming Soon" (it swings into UK cinemas on February 14).

a worthy article indeed thanks josh!

I do think that information was unneeded in that trailer.
bobevanz - 11/16/2023, 7:35 AM
Same energy as Morbius's "To bats, it's lethal; to humans, it's deadly."
Fogs - 11/16/2023, 7:49 AM
@bobevanz - Lol, that line sounds like it's straight from Tropic Thunder.

Drunk concert girl one is the best!
Fogs - 11/16/2023, 7:50 AM
@mountainman - Yeah, the only one I found funny tbh.
WhatIfRickJames - 11/16/2023, 8:05 AM
@mountainman - I love that one the most
MotherGooseUPus - 11/16/2023, 9:40 AM
@mountainman - not guna lie, the BR 2049 made me laugh the most... but they are ALL fantastic and hilarious

Kraven had spiders in the amazon!!!! maybe maybe Kraven is the guy in the spiderman mask. plus did you know that spiders are basically Bats WITH NO WINGS? morbius CONNECTION CONFIRMED?
The1st - 11/16/2023, 1:09 PM
@harryba11zack - Maybe. The thing about Kraven is that he was in the Amazon with his mom when she was researching spiders right before she died. It changes a man.

Josh on the marvels: "why can't we just be more positive?"

Josh on madame web: "hey, here's a bunch of people making fun of madame web. Let's join in laughing at how bad this movie looks and how terrible this line delivery was"
harryba11zack - 11/16/2023, 7:47 AM
@Origame - I think u just discovered where the checks come from
Fogs - 11/16/2023, 7:50 AM
@Origame - shhhhh
MaxPaint - 11/16/2023, 7:51 AM
@Origame - I guess that time is the undisputable tool to reveal people's true colors.

Also Madame Weeb looks worse than the Marvels and the flash, but your point still stands.
TheFinestSmack - 11/16/2023, 7:53 AM
@Origame - Still waiting for him to say "The Marvels is the biggest flop in Marvel's 17 year history"
Origame - 11/16/2023, 7:56 AM
@harryba11zack - what? No!

Origame - 11/16/2023, 7:57 AM
@MaxPaint - exactly. All those people going around yelling at people for being too negative are showing who they truly are now.
Origame - 11/16/2023, 7:57 AM
@TheFinestSmack - nah. It'll be called "the flash flopped, and the marvels had a disappointing run"
blackiron777 - 11/16/2023, 7:58 AM
@Origame - right since this isn't a MCU film its ok to talk negative about it. I wonder if this bombs will the toxic trolls be to blame?
Origame - 11/16/2023, 7:59 AM
@blackiron777 - they won't even care that it's a female led movie that bombed.

Credit where it's due, I have yet to hear anyone from madame web blaming the poor reception of their movie on sexism.
marvel72 - 11/16/2023, 8:04 AM
@TheFinestSmack - The Marvels is breaking records every day.

All the wrong ones but still record breaking.

bobevanz - 11/16/2023, 8:31 AM
@Origame - this is just a Disney website, with more clickbait lol
Origame - 11/16/2023, 8:41 AM
@bobevanz - exactly, lol.
The1st - 11/16/2023, 1:10 PM
@Origame - ...and still give it 5 stars upon release lol.

I like how people make a big deal out of nothing nowadays.
Forthas - 11/16/2023, 8:03 AM
@Th3Batman - EXACTLY my thoughts when I read it. The line is lame....but the response to it may be more so.
Vigor - 11/16/2023, 8:18 AM
@Th3Batman - yup and then everyone latches on. This is not even a funny meme to pile onto
MotherGooseUPus - 11/16/2023, 9:42 AM
@Vigor - i disagree. i laughed at all of them... but maybe its cuz im a big kid at heart and dont take stupid sh*t like this too seriously
The1st - 11/16/2023, 1:16 PM
@Th3Batman - These days? Nah, just everything is over exposed I think.
lazlodaytona - 11/16/2023, 8:01 AM
Sony Pictures = The Definition Of Insanity ... which is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results each time.
WarMonkey - 11/17/2023, 5:16 AM
@lazlodaytona - Same can be said about The Marvels with Kamala. They tried pushing her several times or more in the comics and they all failed badly. They tried in a tv show to elevate her popularity and it failed miserably. Then they pushed her in a movie and it's failure is breaking records. Now they want her to be one of the leads in Young Avengers. She isn't even the only Marvel character like this, just the most recent example. That's literally insane thinking too.

Both companies are led by insane people, this isn't even an opinion it's become fact now. It sucks for us who just want something to enjoy and then share our love of it with others that don't know the comic worlds.
lazlodaytona - 11/17/2023, 6:05 AM
@WarMonkey - Agreed. Add DC to that group as well.
Forthas - 11/16/2023, 8:04 AM
So the line was poorly so what?
Th3Batman - 11/16/2023, 8:19 AM
@Forthas - Remember the storm of negativity over Talia's death in the dark knight rises ? I never knew there was a "right" way to die.
WarMonkey - 11/17/2023, 5:18 AM
@Forthas - It. Was. Read. In. A. Very. Monotone. Way. As. If. She. Was. Talking. Like. I am. Writing. This.
