A Sinister Scene

Sinister_SixNow that Morbius, the next Sony movie that’s a spin off that won’t feature Spider-Man, is finished and being released later this year we finally have an idea of what’s in store for us when it comes to the post- New Deal that Sony and Disney have made. As depicted in the first trailer for the film, Jared Leto’s Michael Morbius walks down a hallway, and we hear the sound of Michael Keaton, and then see Keaton himself address the living vampire in an obvious ploy to connect this film to the larger MCU.

Happy Homecoming, Spider-Man!

In a surprising turn of events (okay, not THAT surprising), Sony and Marvel Studios have renegotiated their deal to keep Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in the MCU for another two movies, and they’ve even got the third film on the schedule for 2021, a mere two years away. After nearly a month passing with the deal seemingly dying, many (myself included) resigned themselves to the fact that the deal was over and done with, and that we’d have to live with a Spidey in a post-MCU world. But it seems like cooler heads have prevailed (or at least realized how much money was being left on the table), and we’re going to get at least two more adventures with the wall-crawler.

Naturally, this causes quite the dilemma for myself, your friendly neighborhood Spidey fan. It’s easy to point the fingers at Sony, given their less than stellar track record with the character prior to the MCU deal, but Disney’s not off the hook either, and it’s all thanks to the one foe that even Spider-Man may not be able to take down: Good old fashioned corporate greed!

The Mysterio Multiverse

spidermanWe’ve got a new look at Spider-Man: Far From Home in the latest trailer, but one of the biggest revelations isn’t just how the MCU has moved on from the heroic sacrifice in Avengers: Endgame. No, it’s the fact that Jake Gyllenhaal’s Quentin Beck (aka Mysterio) is apparently from an alternate Earth. According to the exposition from Nick Fury, Thanos’ “snap”, or one of the other ones, caused a few portals to open in the MCU, causing Beck and the Elemental creatures he and Spidey will fight to arrive on our Earth. It’s an interesting spin to the Mysterio character, and could pave the way for the X-Men and the Fantastic Four to make their way into the MCU proper.
