Venom is trending badly. Saw Catwoman trending on Twitter along with Venom, but only to compare how bad Venom was.

yeah, this is not looking good.
I think the movie will be Okay but not MCU level and that is what SONY is hoping to reach which it won't.

You have to remember that Venom is not a star, just a small character under spiderman.

Trainwreck.
I pretty much expected this tbh.
Venom is hugely popular, just as other anti heroes such as deadpool, I'm sorry for this, I truly am. A tragedy for sure.

Didn't know it was a Sony superhero movie. I'll still see it.
Yeah it's a Sony picture but the character belongs to Marvel.

Venom is under Spiderman like how Dr. Doom is under Fantastic Four.

Fantastic Four belongs to Marvel but under Fox Pictures, which is now under Disney after the buy out.

Xmen is also under Fox also dead pool because he is an Xmen character.

Apparently Sony actually owns part of the Spider-Man character all together not just the movie rights and I guess that extends to all of the characters in the Spider-Man universe since sony is also working on Kraven and Morbius movies as well. Entertainment news Youtuber Grace Randolph who has written comics and has connections in the industry has said that she has been told (by someone at Marvel) that Sony actually owns some portion of Spider-Man.

They only have it for the movie rights. If they were to sell toys and shirts, that money goes to Disney 100%

I thought the same but it seems that they do also own a portion of the character as well, doesn't mean that Disney doesn't control all of that other stuff but Sony may indeed still own a portion of it.

If you're talking about anything that is in the spiderman universe, yes you are correct. Again that is far as it goes.

Again I thought that too but it's been going around that Sony actually owns part of the character all together and it's not just related strictly to movie rights. We'll never know the truth unless Marvel or Sony come out and say it.

Sony may have the rights to certain entertainment uses but i'm pretty sure that part of the reason that the Andrew Garfield Spiderman movies happened because if they go too long without using the license it reverts back to marvel. So they have control of aspects but I wouldn't say they have any ownership of the character.

Correct, it is more of a loan. Long as spiderman is putting out movies SONY will hold the rights for filming. Just to let you know even the spiderman game Disney gets a cut from that.

Yep, previous Spider-Man games weren’t Sony’s, and they were multi platform... Sony just owns movie rights, allowing them to use any materia, from the comics, if they make a film, which is why their pre-homecoming flicks are bit of a mix mash and technically making said universe new and their own. Kinda like how the LEGO games and other marvel games are that of their own and under license of marvel/Disney not Sony.

For some reason I still haven’t got around to watching this. I’ve mixed things some thought it was entertaining, some thought it was s***.
