Yeah this went from a pass to a hard pass.
It was rough being comic reader in the 90s.Sony wants to have Shriek in Venom 2 alongside Carnage.
I'm not saying that they can't re-imagine the characters into something interesting, or even good, I'm just saying that I hate both of those characters, and I have no faith that they're going to be anything but one-dimensional murder blobs.
The movie will definitely be bad. I'm willing to give them at least a little kudos for actually going back and improving the design, but not much more than that.If that's real, it would verify (one of) the rumoured leaked image(s) from a while back.
It's a big improvement from the one we saw earlier in the year, but it's still not great.
Doesn't really matter because the movie will be shit anyway.
That reasoning is just complete bollocks, though. It's the same as "we can't cast black actors as main characters" or "we can't let a female main actor carry a franchise" - something wasn't super successful once, so this one thing MUST be the reason why it failed. Quality of work or editing or whatever can't possibly have anything to do with it!The movie will do poorly either way and that they spent so long and so much on "fixing" it will be pointed to everytime the internet at large complains that something is off regarding design as why not to waste resources to fix the problem.
Adjustments like this will never happen again because of how poorly this does, independent of the changes, it looks like a shitty movie anyway.
Obviously, the better option is to just do it right in the first place but it was nice that they ate crow and admitted it was so bad it needed to be reworked. It is too bad they are definitely not going to see the return out of having done it and that others will use that to justify never making these last minute changes.
To be fair, if there is ever a reason to shove Tom Holland into things, a movie about a bunch of different iterations of Spider-Man coming together seems like the best.And find a way to justify shoving Tom Holland into it, DON'T forget justifying a way to shove Tom Holland into it(looking at YOU Venom 3).
Exactly, and I am...DREADING how their gonna explain that, especially if they try to say the Venom movies were in the MCU the entire time.Oh, that's happening, Andy Serkis is directing this time. Despite being hot garbage, the first did fairly well overseas and did have the highest October opening here until Joker. And, I know they're trying to push Holland and Hardy together for a planned third movie as well...
I was mostly just making a dig at Venom 3, but honestly it wouldn't necessarily be bad if done right, but knowing Sony and how they've been trying to have a stranglehold on the Webhead I feel they could try and force in a cameo that wasn't part of the original story.I guess I'm just confused as to how that happening is related to Holland in Spiderverse? Or why adding him would be a bad thing.
I totally get what you're saying, but I also feel like Spider-verse is one of the few places they could get away with a random cameo from anyone. I think the real concern is taking away the spotlight from Miles, or letting a cameo over-shadow his progress.I was mostly just making a dig at Venom 3, but honestly it wouldn't necessarily be bad if done right, but knowing Sony and how they've been trying to have a stranglehold on the Webhead I feel they could try and force in a cameo that wasn't part of the original story.
They could do a Sinister Six thing, with Green Goblin from Maquire, the Lizard from Garfield, and Mysterio from Holland. Then you through in Doc Ock for Miles, the Vulture for Gwen, and... I dunno... the Shocker for B.Personally, I wish they'd get Toby Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Tom Holland all on screen, even for just one scene.
I think I read somewhere they originally wanted Maguire for Peter B Parker, but couldn't get him because of scheduling conflicts or some such. That might be just a rumor, though.
I wouldn't mind a Mysterio from Peni Parker's universe, portrayed as if he sees himself like a shonen anime protagonist.They could do a Sinister Six thing, with Green Goblin from Maquire, the Lizard from Garfield, and Mysterio from Holland.
