Oh ****, they for real?!
This'll be a trip. More likely than not it'll stink, but here's hoping they actually do decently. I also hope they don't take any influence from Agent Venom or Venom: Spaceknight. Agent was ok, but I found Space Knight to be incredibly stupid, but I don't think they should go those routes because they weren't exactly the best fit for the character.

Also, I've always kinda wanted a scene like this in a hypothetical Venom movie:

This whole trend of studio execs deciding when to release a movie before they tap a director, cast any actors, or even write a script really needs to die.

So uhh...here we go with fan theories

Is ‘Life’ a Prequel to Sony’s ‘Spider-Man’ Spinoff, ‘Venom’?!

That would be clever and fun. I hope it is.

Neat idea. Sounds too clever for Sony though. Everything they've done is so in-your-face.

Plus, if they were being so (relatively) meticulous about making a Venom prequel without any immediate reference to the character, they really wouldn't be pulling this "we'll make a real Venom movie literally in less than two years!" BS. They'd actually be trying.

**** Sony either way. I mean, it'd be kinda cool if they were ripping off Spectacular Spider-Man here and spun it off from there, but I don't see them actually doing it.

Just pisses me off that Spidey is literally going to space (or at least being exposed to aliens) in IW and maybe again in A4. Seems like a great time to introduce the symbiote, and be more in line with the comics. Then have Peter deal with and lose the symbiote on Homecoming 2/2019, and then make your stupid ass solo Venom movie no one cares about in 2020 and let the MCU use him if they see fit.

I love Venom and I hope this movie comes out, I think no matter what they come out with I would enjoy it, even the poorly handled Spider-Man 3 Venom was fine by me.

Now I hope they go full Venom with it and have it reek of the 90s in full anti-hero "Lethal Enforcer" rated R movie now that Logan and Deadpool have proven people like that even if it would in no way compare to those movies.

Cool idea but the risk is too high. Deadpool was a fluke in terms of its success.
Sony's main goal here is to make some much-needed money. I don't think they've had a good, solid hit in years now. PG-13 is the most profitable route they could take.

Yeah, I really wish Marvel Studios could regain absolute control over the movie rights to Spidey, the Fantastic Four, and whoever else they sold (I know the X-Men are included in this but I'm not that concerned with them as far as inclusion in the MCU goes, because I feel it's hard to achieve the allusion to the civil rights movement that their comics originally evoked when you've got superheros adored by the public running around in the same setting; in my opinion they work best in a setting without other superheroes)

I feel like the MCU could do a decent riff on the original Secret Wars storyline as their next "big" plot point after Thanos

Agreed about xmen. I'm glad Marvel dosen't have them, I just wish Fox wasn't so bad at them. I would dig it if Marvel got to use Wolverine though. No one else.

Secret Wars could be cool. Definitely need Doom for that.

Why won't Sony give up? Once Sam Raimi and Tobey Maquire walked they lost quality that cannot be replicated. It hasn't been the same since and its not going to be.

Go home Sony, you're drunk.

I love Chris Yost but this is so stupid. Why create a Spider-Man movie universe that isn't connected to your main Spider-Man movie?

Like oldmanwinters said, sounds like they're doing exactly what WB did with Catwoman. Unbelievable.

TTN beat me to the news.

Sony had ONE chance at redemption. And now they're going to frak up the Spiderman 'verse as quickly and as forcefully as possible.

What was the point of making a deal with Marvel if they're going right back to their original patented "throw-sh!t-at-the-wall" plan?

Mannnn, I forgot just how many character rights Marvel sold off. I was reading Deadpool's Secret Secret Wars the other day, a kind-of comedic retconning of the original Secret Wars, and I was getting all these nostalgic feels for the classic. It's such a relic of its time, it would have to be thoroughly updated and re-worked, just for dialogue and plot points alone, not even considering how many characters that appeared in it that Marvel can't currently use. Oh well. We got Age of Ultron, Civil War, and soon Infinity War. I wonder what big "event" storyline they'll adapt next.

well said. it just reeks of money-grabbing desperation, especially with the confirmation that none of these movies will be connected to the MCU in any way. it's just like, why???
