The Madame Web Scene That’s Giving Major Final Destination Vibes

The “Final Destination 2” log truck sequence is so legendary, it’s entered meme status, with countless people posting humorous photos with comments on how a generation has been scarred for life from ever driving behind such a vehicle ever again. A perfect example is in a post from the Instagram account @physicalmediapresident where they share a photo that shows cars apparently refusing to line up in the lane behind a log truck. The caption reads, “Everyone in the left lane has seen final destination 2.”

Even if a log truck’s presence in the superhero movie was a completely random choice that had nothing to do with the fan-favorite horror franchise, “Madame Web” director S.J. Clarkson doesn’t mind her film receiving “Final Destination” comparisons. GamesRadar+ brought up the similarities between the two properties, at least in terms of the basic plot, and Clarkson was all for it. “Listen, I’ll take that,” she stated. “It’s a thriller at the end of the day and it was exciting to be able to have those thriller-slash-horror moments.” 

That genre naturally lends itself to “Madame Web” because, as star Dakota Johnson acknowledged in an interview with Looper, the title character doesn’t have a typical superhero power like the ability to fly. Cassie sees into the future, and much like in “Final Destination,” that can have unsettling consequences. “It was so inherently psychological that it could be a thriller; more cerebral, and therefore more grounded,” Clarkson said. “I found it really interesting and exciting to explore that in a cinematic world.”
