On Wednesday, Deadline announced that the White Lotus star is part of the cast for the Spider-Man spinoff.

While it hasn't been revealed which character Sweeney will play, she is, so far, the second big name attached to upcoming project.

Last month, news broke that Johnson would portray the titular character. The Fifty Shades of Grey alum shared the news on her Instagram with a simple spider web emoji as the caption.

The newly engaged Sweeny followed suit by posting a screenshot of the Deadline article and used the same emoji for the caption.

Madame Web follows a female superhero who is a mutant with psychic sensory powers that allows her to predict the future of other superheroes in the universe. It will be the first flick to feature a female superhero in the Sony Pictures' Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In addition to Madame Web, Sony plans on expanding the Spider-Verse to include films such as Jared Leto's Morbius, which hits theaters next month.

Sweeney is best known for her role as the doe-eyed Cassie Howard on the provocative HBO Max series. The series' second season gave the actor a much larger storyline and her fame has only grown since.
