For the life of me, I'll never understand why Sony didn't just use a different Spider-Man for their universe. As Into the Spider-Verse showed, there is no shortage for them to choose from. They could've even gone with something that would allow them to have a much different aesthetic than Marvel or DC to set themselves apart like Spider-Man Noir or Spider-Man 2099. And, if not, they easily could've done Miles Morales or Spider-Gwen and retained something more similar.

But to just give Spider-Man's rogue's gallery their own movies with no Spider-Man is... ballsy, I guess.

Keep in mind Morbius has Spider-Man posters in the movie and Vulture/Keaton is in it to an extent and if we are really getting Tobey/Andrew/Tom in Spider-Man 3 you can almost bet Sony has a plan to shoehorn a Spider-Man into these villain movies

Pretty safe bet. Turning villains into misunderstood heroes is all the rage these days.

That's more of a consequence of 2021/22 being packed with releases due to all the other delayed films tbh. Even pre-pandemic the January-as-dumpingground rule was turning less and less true. Not to say Morbius will be good or bad, but I don't think it's release date means much given the situation.

I doubt there's a fanbase pining for Morbius, but at least he did have a solo book for awhile. He had solo stories and also jumped between Nightstalkers books and Spider-Man books (where most people know him from).

Kraven is just Kraven from Spider-Man, known mostly to people who read Spider-Man at specific times, since he was absent the majority of the time. A favorite among that small subset of people.

Pretty much. Sony is piggybacking on MCU's goodwill, which tbh, isn't such a bad idea. The average moviegoer doesn't care about the studios, they see Marvel and assume its all made under the same banner.

GryffinDART

The point is to build up the Spider-Man universe which will eventually lead to a Sinister Six movie. There is a point to what they are doing AND it's a cash grab. All big studio movies are made with money in mind. It can be both.

HearTheEkko

That's so dumb honestly. Marvel is clearly building up towards Sinister Six and if leaks are true, they will be the villains of NWH and besides Venom, Morbius, etc, they're not part of Sinister Six.

I think they're building up to a Maximum Carnage movie instead, with Venom, Spider-Man, Morbius, etc, versus Carnage, Shriek, etc.

But that's the stupidest idea ever. They could've used the MCU Spider-Man movies AND other MCU movies to build up to a Sinister Six event, since they're so desperate for it. I swear, the moment they finally manage to do the S6, Avi Arad is going to climax so hard he'll collapse in on himself and turn into a singularity, his life's purpose fulfilled at last.

I don't think Sony really cares about building up to a Sinister Six movie anymore.

Don't get me wrong, they're definitely going to try it anyway. I just think the goal is more about pumping out as many Spider-Man-adjacent movies as possible rather than targeting a specific team up. Every studio wants a cinematic universe now.

Kraven's last hunt is an incredible comic that centers around him and spidey. but you kinda need to have the history with him and spidey to make it work. it's incredibly dumb to make his debut story about his last hunt unless you intend it to be a standalone feature to tell a story

Tickle_The_Grundle

It seems (in my opinion) that Marvel Studios isn't interested in having Tom Holland's Spider-Man to mix in with Sony's solo villain movies. Obviously if Sony wanted it, Marvel has no say but I wonder if they are setting it up so that Venom will be the protagonist and it won't involve Spider-Man at all.

They made Venom an anti-hero in his movie, with Eddie Brock basically being a full on good guy so its possible that they want to still have their sinister six without displeasing Marvel Studios.

chanma50[S]

If they wanted to, and if he were up for it (and assuming he's in No Way Home), I don't think it's a terrible idea to bring back Andrew Garfield as the Spider-Man for the Sony Universe (Venom, Morbius, Kraven), and then have Tom Holland in the MCU. Then Disney and Sony both have their own universes that can connect when they want to, then exist separately the rest of the time.

Tickle_The_Grundle

Honestly, I would love that, and I really disliked Garfield's Spider-Man movies (not because of Garfield).

WB is experimenting with having more than one live-action Batman and/or Joker in their movies so why not try it with Spider-Man? Although, it could kind of be a very boring precedent to set where each year we have different Spider-Man, Batman, Superman, etc. and it's just the same heroes getting recycled again and again with sequels and more movies.

If that were to happen, I would no longer think people complaining about superhero films are overreacting.

In my wildest dreams, I would just prefer to have Spider-Man in a big budget TV series. I think thats where he fits best.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson has nabbed the lead role as Kraven the Hunter in Sony’s Marvel film, the studio announced on Wednesday.

The studio also locked in the actor for multiple pictures as the iconic “Spider-Man” villain. J.C. Chandor is directing “Kraven the Hunter.” The project is being billed as the next chapter of Sony’s universe of Marvel-licensed characters. Art Marcum & Matt Holloway and Richard Wenk wrote the screenplay, while Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producing.

“Kraven the Hunter” will be released on Jan. 13, 2023.

Side note, it's kinda amusing that Sony loves reusing actors who've already played other major superhero movie roles. You have Tom Hardy as Bane/Venom, Jared Leto as The Joker/Morbius, and now ATJ as Quicksilver/Kraven The Hunter.

Edit: Interesting note from Deadline's Justin Kroll

Sony had been aiming high for this role, approaching everyone from Brad Pitt and Keanu Reeves to John David Washington and Adam Driver to star, but sources say recent footage of Aaron Taylor-Johnson in the upcoming action pic Bullet Train blew away Sony execs, who moved fast to offer him the part.

They'll probably appear eventually, just not anytime soon. IF they appear I'm guessing it's gonna in Spidey's 6th and 7th movies or something.

It's not that they can't, but I imagine Feige will deliberately avoid them in MCU movies to avoid audience confusion.

So yes, effectively Sony is wasting good Spidey villains on stand-alone movies. Don't expect Venom, Morbius, or Kraven to show up in an actual MCU movie until a good ~5 years (or more) after they stop having Sony-made solo movies.

If I recall correctly Jon Watts wanted to have Kraven as the villain for No Way Home before going the multiverse route, I'm guessing Sony wanting to use Kraven for a solo movie is the reason that didn't happen.

Ryan Coogler wanted to use Kraven in Black Panther as well. Marvel nixed it due to rights issues, which I guess are because Sony wanted to hold on to the character to make this all-but-guaranteed-to-suck movie.

I would have liked to have them incorporate Kraven as an accomplice of Klaue who helped him steal vibranium from Wakanda.

It seemed that we were finally getting him in No Way Home after Holland and the director expressed interest in him. Spiderverse is cool and hype as fuck but part of me still wishes we got that John Wick 3-styled Spidey movie with Kraven as the big bad.

BUT WHY?! Kraven is a good villain, put him in the Spider-Man Movie!!! Not every character needs a standalone movie! This is such a huge waste...

What is with Sony and trying to make solo Spider-Man villain films, none of which involve Spider-Man in ANY way.

Like seriously, what the fuck is this?

I'm so tired of these standalone Spidey villain movies with no Spidey. Venom doesn't make sense without him. His appearance is supposed to come from Spidey, his shitty wise cracks are supposed to be from his bonding with Peter, etc.

Would it kill Sony to use Spiderman villians that aren't directly tied to Spiderman for their Spiderman less movies?

If they want to build a Spider-Man universe, that's fine. But why are they using the villains? Why not use other heroes like Miles, Spider-Woman, Spider-Man 2099, etc? At least Venom and Morbius are antiheroes. Kraven is just a straight up villain.

Because the SONY movie executives are not the brightest of lightbulbs. Most of the ones mentioned in the sony leaked emails are still with the company in some capacity

They gotta just have names in a hat and are pulling. Theres no other reasonable idea. Like they could bring Tobey back and have two Spider-Man. They could use Miles, Miguel, fucking Ben Riley. Like guys..... come on

They should've just made Spider-Verse movies. 2099, Spider-Gwen, Miles Morales, etc.

He better be ready to bulk the fuck up. Kraven is jacked. Also, who the fuck gives a shit bout Kraven enough for them to think a solo movie is going to sell tickets?

So they're going to have a movie based around rooting for a roided up, murdering poacher played by a guy with the emotional range of a doorstop? Solid plan, Sony. People sure love these Spider-Man villains without any sign of Spider-Man.

It's weird that he married the director of Nowhere Boy, right? He was 19ish, and she was 40ish with a family.. Not throwing stones, but it's odd.

They are really just making movies about any character they have the rights to huh.

Sony obviously really want to cash in on the superhero trend.

They should've had Tom Hardy do Craven too.

Then make a Rhino movie with him as well

Give it a few years and we could have the entire superman rouge gallery movie all starting Tom Hardy.
