If you’ve been to a movie in the past month, or you’re a genuine MCU completionist, you’ve probably seen a trailer for Madame Web. It looks like a decently good movie that will expand the world of Spider-Man-flavored superheroes. One of the most notable things about this trailer is its use of clunky exposition that has turned into a bit of a Twitter meme. Dakota Johnson, as the titular Madame Web says,
“He was in the Amazon with my mom when she was researching spiders right before she died”
I don’t know who “he” is, but I’m obsessed that this is her connection to becoming a Spider-Person. It stays within the tradition of Spider-Man origin stories being clunky at best and downright absurd at worst. If you were in the Amazon with Dakota Johnson’s mom when she was researching spiders right before she died, these Marvel memes may help you with your grief.
