Being Spidey fans since we were kids, don’t tell me you haven’t tried getting bitten by a real-life spider to see if you really gain Spider-Man’s abilities, and then attempted to shoot webs from your wrist just like Peter Parker would.
And ironically enough, a Spider-Man actor recently got bitten by a real-life arachnid, when they were filming, no less. No, we’re not talking about Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, or Tom Holland, but rather an actress from the upcoming Sony movie Madame Web. Let’s learn more about Sydney Sweeney and her bizarre story of getting bitten by a spider on set.
