Re: Venom Movie & Sinister Six Movie Announced As Spider-Man Spinoffs By Sony

I dunno I sort of feel like if the plan was to introduce Venom or symbiote in a future film that Marvel would have kept quiet about it rather than announcing an official film with that title. Why would they put out a blatant spoiler before either Homecoming or possibly Infinity War if they planned to introduce that story into one of those films?

It seems more likely to me that Sony jumped the gun on doing this film and I would guess they want to take it the rated R route and try to mimic the recent successes Fox has had. The problem is they risk screwing up the Spider-Man universe yet again. Frankly if I was Marvel I'd be a bit pissed at Sony. Granted yes Sony does still own the Spider-Man film rights but Marvel is trying to get the character on track for them again. They don't necessarily need to even do that but it benefits them both and thus far the reception has been decent. Now you have Sony back to their old ways again trying to do something like this. Unless they have the backing of Marvel (which I sort of doubt) this is a pretty questionable move in my opinion.
