Having just watched the latest trailer for Sony’s–In Association With Marvel!–Venom I have to admit that I like it a lot more than the first.
Though the American accent Tom Hardy appears to be ruining? Not so much.
But don’t misinterpret my meaning. I still think Venom–and the other characters of the SpiderVerse–belong with Marvel Studios though with the deal between Disney and 20th Century Fox essentially done, I’m content knowing the Marvel Studios sandbox has more than enough action figures to play with.
And before anyone even thinks it, the X-Men and Fantastic Four returning to Marvel Studios ISN’T a monopoly. They’re Marvel Comics characters so by way of analogy that’s like saying that reuniting those children separated from their families by our ‘President’ is wrong because…?
And besides, this is Sony so I have to do is be patient because the likelihood is high they’ll overplay their hand, screwing up the good will Marvel has returned to them with Spider-Man: Homecoming.
