The director, co-writer, and executive producer Clarkson points out that the reference in the film to the “Romita” corporation is an homage to acclaimed Spider-Man artist John Romita, Jr.(!). Really? I mean, she is not wrong, exactly, but brownie points and bragging rights go to the first reader to point out in this thread what the glaring problem is with this observation.

Are you trying to say the homage should have referred to John Romita, Sr.?

I mean, I understand that the elder Romita is more of a legend in the comic field, but JRjr actually worked on more comics that directly influenced this movie - including the aforementioned ASM #210, as well as the early 2000s run that introduced the Ezekiel character.

Well…not as bad as O thought it would be but still not a good film. On par with “Morbius”. Maybe they should stop trying to build a Spider-Man universe. That hasn’t really worked out for them though “Venom” was pretty good.
