Thread: Venom

  1. #11
    According to IGN this is also still lined up at Sony. Apparently Feige will only be involved in the next solo Spiderman, after that Sony still maintains full control of the franchise only with the added bonus of the crossover elements. As most of the original plan is clearly still going ahead, it really raises questions as it feels Marvel is risking the reputation of the MCU saga somewhat now

    Yep, this doesn't feel good. As someone said on Twitter (me), this feels like young George Lucas bringing in old George Lucas to make Star Wars. Sony is weak. Marvel is strong. Yes, Spider-Man is a well loved character and wouldn't it be great if he was part of the Marvel movies? But Marvel have proven that they can get along just fine without him. They have a lot less to gain here than Sony does and they risk tainting their universe with the rubbish that Sony make from here.

    I guess part of it depends on the marketing. If Spider-Man has a cameo in CA3 and we know that's all it is, that could be fine. If people go into to Sony-made Spidey and Venom movies thinking that they are Marvel movies and they stink, that's a problem.

    I think this is going to be a disaster. Spider-man has so much bad baggage from all the **** films that his presence to me taints the good marvel have done.

    He's like poochie in the simpsons.

    They're apparently taking the character young again, so whilst he'll already be operating as a lower scale Spiderman it'll mean a return to high school and Gwen.

    They'll have to tread carefully as well, shoe horning OsCorp into the universe... Especially after NYs devastation in Avengers could get awkward if handled wrong

    I too am not looking forward to this.

    Spiderman's had 5 films now. The first one was decent for the time, in that we were still reeling from the idea that superhero movies didn't have to be generally terrible.

    The sequels were poor and I couldn't even command enough interest to see the recent two.

    Do we really need to see Peter Parker get bitten by a spider, beat his bully, get the girl next door...

    I kinda hope they go with the new Spider Man kid - is it Miles-something? Anything to get us away from what we've already seen.

    They also need to remember who Spiderman is and remember his limits. He's not invulnerable. Pretty sure the original character couldn't hold up a building or stop a train with his body.

    The Spider-Man teen school romance stuff has no interest to me. The moment the whole Spider-Man movie universe went wrong was right at the start of Raimi's first one when Peter Parker says the story is about a girl.

    Nail. Head.

    You know what Thor's about? Thor.
    You know what Iron Man's about? Tony Stark and Iron Man.

    It's like making a Superman movie and saying "this movie's about Lois Lane". She's a huge part of the character's story, but it's still THE CHARACTER'S STORY.

    Is Spider-Man actually in this, or is it just Venom and Carnage? I believe the first Spider-Man Sony/Marvel reboot reboot will be in 2017 and then the Sinister Six movie will follow at some unspecified point. I thought the Venom: Carnage movie had dropped off the radar?

    This is all getting out of hand!

    Avengers Age of Ultron
    Dr Strange
    Batman vs Superman
    Thor
    Civil War
    X men apocalypse

    These we'll all be worth the watch.

    The rest will be dross. I mean, why have they made an entire film about gambit ffs? his special power is making cards glow...

    This is still coming apparently but is still fully TBA.

    For me Spiderman peaked with Spiderman 2, I still really enjoy that one and it holds up well to everything that's followed. I feel the Amazing entries get too much knocking but without closure they're now uber redundant in the face of all this, even compared to Raimis
