The first trailer for Madame Web has dropped and we've finally been given a look at Sydney Sweeney as Spider-Woman.

The Spider-Man spinoff film stars Dakota Johnson as Cassandra/Madame Web who starts getting premonitions about the future.

She can picture horrifying things happen before they actually occur, a power described as being able to see 'within the spider world'.

The paramedic teams up with 'three young women with powerful futures' to stop a man who can also see the future.

Sweeney has been cast as Julia Carpenter/Spider-Woman and the first trailer for the movie offers up a split-second glance at her becoming a superhero.

Fans are divided on the preview, with one saying: "This film looks good and bad at the same time."

Another added: "I love the first looks."

A third wrote: "Just watched the trailer, honestly i expected more but it looks good enough for me to be watching it in theaters."

Spider-Woman debuted in the Marvel comics back in 1977.

When she was a child, she was gravely ill from uranium exposure and her dad injects her with an experimental serum based on irradiated spider blood.

She gets put in a genetic accelerator, as you do, and when she comes out decades later, she's only a teenager.

Her origin story was rebranded in Spider-Woman Origin and her powers came from when her pregnant mother was hit by a laser beam containing DNA traits of different species of spider.

She ends up being a brainwashed spy who was working for HYDRA before joining S.H.I.E.L.D. as a double agent and then even later she teams up with the New Avengers.

However, in the comics, her name was Jessica Miriam Drew, instead of Julia Carpenter.

So we could be getting a completely different origin story in the film.
