You're forgetting that Spider-Man was already delayed to December 2021 when Avatar 2 vacated the pre-Christmas slot. If Sony wants to put Spider-Man out six weeks after The Eternals, they can. Far From Home came out a relatively short amount of time after Endgame.It's all but certain that Spider-Man 3 will get a new release date, as Marvel just moved Eternals to Nov 5, 2021, which was Spider-Man 3's release date.
Egad! You're right!You're forgetting that Spider-Man was already delayed to December 2021 when Avatar 2 vacated the pre-Christmas slot. If Sony wants to put Spider-Man out six weeks after The Eternals, they can. Far From Home came out a relatively short amount of time after Endgame.
I don't even remember Amazing Spider-Man 2 any more (is Paul Giamatti in that one too?) but I think the problems in that movie don't hinge on Jamie Foxx so transplanting him into a hopefully better movie will yield better results. Hopefully.The Hollywood Reporter says Jamie Foxx is returning as Electro from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 for the third MCU film.
I won't reprint my reaction here, but I actually swore when I saw this. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is the movie that was so terrible it forced Sony to make a deal with Marvel. I don't know anyone who likes it. I deeply hope this is not true. If it is, I sure as hell hope they know what they are doing.
I mean, I'm sure that I am going to see the film.
But this does not make me excited.
Because ASM2 was a garbage movie and the idea of reinforcing connections with it makes me nervous.iif you’ve thought Kevin Feige did a great job shepherding the 23 prior installments of the MCU, why panic now?
Yes. And he was also terrible. Those things are not mutually exclusive.He delivered exactly the performance that was asked of him.
I think we have 12 years and 23 films worth of evidence that they do. Feige and Disney were fully prepared to let Spidey go rather than make a Spidey film under terms that were disagreeable to them. If that’s not enough to earn him the benefit of the doubt then I don’t know what is.I hope they know what they're doing.
That was a financially-based decision. Bringing characters back from a widely-hated film that Feige had nothing to do with is a creative one. So I don't really see that as an apples-to-apples comparison.Feige and Disney were fully prepared to let Spidey go rather than make a Spidey film under terms that were disagreeable to them.
And Chris Evans was terrible in the role of Johnny Storm in the two FF movies. I'm still thrilled that he was hired to play Steve Rogers in the MCU. I know, I know, it's not the same role. So what?
I think it depends on what they do with him.if Foxx gets to work with the same director and writers who worked on the two MCU Spidey movies, he will probably be a lot better in the role than he was in ASM2.
Right. So I think it’s pretty clear now that there is a meaning/significance to this choice. Whatever it may be, it’s more than the initial reason assumed for the casting of JK Simmons. I’m pretty sure They’re doing something with the multiverse. Hopefully not quite yet in this movie, but they’re at least setting up for it.That seems strange. They could just as well use the character again with another actor and be free of the baggage. The choice to do this is puzzling.
Even that feels different because they went out of their way to give Simmons a different look than he had before, and decided that the Bugle was "a controversial news website." That's not the same version of Jameson or the Bugle that appeared in the Raimi films. So if they are going to do a multiverse thing with Simmons, they would still have to "borrow" the previous version from the continuity of the Raimi films, for lack of a better term.it’s more than the initial reason assumed for the casting of JK Simmons.
