Next Up is How Spider-Man: Far From Home Should Have Ended!

The marathon of fun YouTube videos continues today with a How It Should Have Ended, this time tackling Spider-Man: Far From Home! And they really have some funny alternate endings this time, which is always a plus.

Fun times! I love it best when this channel sticks to its chosen path. I love it best when this channel stays in their lane! That’s right, I said it. You chose your gimmick, you’re stuck with your gimmick!



Sony Pulls the Plug On Their Spider-Man Deal With Marvel

The report has just come in from Deadline: Sony has struck down Marvel’s request for more equal profits on the Spider-Man films, so the deal to share the Wall-Crawler is at and end. Damn it all to hell.

Spidey Deal Over 01

It was good while it lasted

Deadline obviously has all the finer details and understands them better than me. Basically, I think Marvel wanted a 50/50 split on costs or profits, but Sony would agree to nothing of the sort. The deal has been that Sony would get all the movie profits from Spider-Man films, while Marvel worked their magic to make them awesome, and was allowed to have Spidey show up in Avengers films. And obviously that has worked out splendidly, considering Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man Far From Home were both great, and Spidey’s appearances in other Marvel movies were also a blast!

But good things don’t last forever and greed is the most powerful thing of all. Sony clearly thinks they’ll do fine on their own, with all of their hopes resting on a dumb Morbius movie.

Venom was only successful because people like Venom! Not because you made a good movie! Granted, Sony also made Into the Spider-Verse without Marvel’s input…

Ugh. This is just bad, annoying news. Why can’t we have nice things? Far From Home earned more than a billion dollars and it was because of Marvel. Argh. There’s no point in my blathering. We all know how terrible and dumb this is, but then we’re not stupid Hollywood executives.


So Scream is Getting an Ongoing Series…Neat!

Scream is my favorite of the symbiotes. I wasn’t into comics yet when Venom and Carnage first appeared, so I never developed an attachment to them. Whereas Scream showed up right in the middle of the Clone Saga, at the perfect time for me to latch on. Not only is she just plain cool by being the first female symbiote, but she looks awesome!

It’s disappointing that she’s only ever been a minor character, but all this Absolute Carnage craziness has led to her finally making a comeback! And that comeback will including a new ongoing series in the fall, called Scream: Curse of Carnage.

The comic will be written by Clay McCleod Chapman, who I don’t know, with art by Chris Mooneyham, who I also don’t know. But I am hope springs eternal that another one of my favorite obscure characters is getting some attention!

I’m also reading the Scream tie-in mini-series to Absolute Carnage, the first issue of which came out this week. It was…fine. Just fine. But it’s also just getting started, so here’s hoping it really comes together.

Anyway, here’s the text for the first issue of Scream: Curse of Carnage:

Patricia Robertson, Andi Benton, Donna Diego… it’s all been leading to this as one of the original – and possibly strongest – offspring of the Venom symbiote at last stars in her own, self-titled ongoing series set in the Marvel Universe! But after the events of ABSOLUTE CARNAGE, what remains of the Scream symbiote as it was before? Does it even have a host? What are their intentions? And what will a pair of web-slinging wallcrawlers have to say about its presence in New York?

Here’s hoping Scream gets to have some fun going forward! It’s a shame they didn’t use her in the Venom movie.

And did you know that Scream is the symbiote character that appears in the Spider-Man ride at Universal Studios? It was a fun ride, but then I was very disappointed that they didn’t have any Scream merchandise in the attached gift shop!


Let’s Check Out Some Spider-Man Costumes

It’s Monday. Life is good. I don’t have too much to show off at the moment. So how about a fun video showing off classic Spider-Man costumes? It’s from Noah Sterling!

Interesting list. Some of it matches up with my own list of favorite Spider-Man costumes, but not all. At the very least, we got a nice, cheerful, Monday morning video for our troubles.


The 6 Best Spider-Man Villains Not Yet in the Movies

It tickles me pink that Sony and Marvel have not yet repeated the main villain across seven live action Spider-Man movies, despite three different series. As easy as it would have been to just do Doctor Octopus over again, the Amazing Spider-Man and MCU films continued to dig deep into Spidey’s Rogues Gallery to find new live action villains.

Spidey Villain Remains List 01

They did right by Mysterio

Granted, the Amazing films got a little weird with their own Harry Osborn Green Goblin, but he wasn’t the main villain of his film so I’m not counting him. We’ve had Green Goblin, Doc Ock, Venom, Sandman, Lizard, Electro, Rhino, Vulture, Shocker and now Mysterio in Spider-Man: Far From Home. Who else is left? Which villains are there to use in whatever Far From Home sequel we get down the line?

I’m glad you asked! Join me after the jump for the best Spider-Man villains who have yet to appear in live action films.
