Sony Pictures Releasing

The Madame Web reviews are in, and they're worse than anticipated.

At the time of publishing, the superhero movie holds an anemic18 percent over at Rotten Tomatoes.

Starring Dakota Johnson, Sydney Sweeney, Celeste O'Connor, and Isabela Merced, the film is Sony's latest entry into its middling Spider-Man universe, which to be clear, is separate from the MCU's Tom Holland-starrin Spider-Man movies.

The buzz surrounding the film has been bad since the first trailer was widely ridiculed upon its release.

Now that it's screened for critics, it appears that Sony officially has a dud on its hands.

Variety called it "a hollow Sony-made Spider-Man spinoff with none of the charm you expect from even the most basic superhero movie," while Rolling Stone writes that "not a single decision seems of sound mind," and "not a single performance feels in sync with the material.

It's safe to say we won't be getting a Madame Web 2 anytime soon. And by that we mean ever.

Check out some more reactions to Madame Web below.

Yeah, #MadameWeb is somehow worse than you feared. One of the worst movies ever made, in any genre. Story makes absolutely no sense. The "action" is boring, with barely any cape stuff. Dakota Johnson looks as bored as you'll feel. It makes MORBIUS look like THE DARK KNIGHT.

#MadameWeb spins a chaotic and perplexing theatrical experience that challenges viewers to question their reality in unexpected ways. Characters and story will leave you confused and bewildered. With no clear vision, this web becomes a tangled mess.

#MadameWeb is an embarrassing mess. Talented stars wasted on probably the worst comic book movie I have ever seen. Filled with atrocious dialogue, awkward editing, & all around laughable structure. I sat there baffled scene by scene someone approved this. The memes will redeem it

What the heck did I just watch with #MadameWeb. It makes MORBIUS look like an award winning movie. No chemistry at all, editing is bad and the story just doesn't click. Sony Spider-Man Universe needs to reevaluate where to go from here.
