Honestly can't tell if there's honest love for this movie or if it's all weird sarcasm. Not caught up with MCU things so no idea if Venom & Morbius are in or not. Would be hilarious if Leto destroys the MCU.

My guess? Desperation from the studio.

If a studio wants name recognition on movie posters but can't get a decent A-lister, screw it give Leto a call.

eh,

I guess the little prepubescent social media pranksters should have their fun.

I hope Sony does persist in their little dumpster fire succession of dopey, pseudo-MCU
films. ( I guess at least 4 more faceplants to fill the roster of the "Sinister Six")

Their failures will still keep Holland over at the MCU, and maybe Garfield can get squeezed in
over there as the official Brand X Spider-Man.

/heh, if they really wanted to be clever, they should fein interest and over hype "Madame Web"

The internet needs to learn that "doing a thing ironically" is still doing the thing.

If you ironically heil Hitler, you're still heiling Hitler.  If you ironically tell a woman to make you a sandwich, you're still telling a woman to make you a sandwich.  If you ironically shout the n-word, you're still shouting the n-word.

And if you ironically make a big deal about a bad movie, you're still making a big deal about a bad movie.

Calm down a little. If you ironically heil Hitler, you're still heiling Hitler, but if you ironically make a big deal about a bad movie, that's nowhere near the same thing as heiling Hitler.

People have been making jokes about the "greatness" of Waterworld for ages, and everyone gets that they're jokes because the awfulness of Waterworld is the joke. No one's been clueless enough to interpret the mockery as demand for a sequel.

And maybe that's where we went wrong with Avatar. Instead of making ruthless fun of it, we just forgot about it, and James Cameron was left to stare at its colossal box office take and think that meant the world was crying out for a sequel. We failed in our duties, Internet snarkers!

It wasn't a horrible movie, just not as good as some of the other Marvel movies. If they do make a sequel it'll go straight to streaming.

Not everything Marvel is going to be sure fire hit, heck even the MCU has had a fair few misses.

I'm pretty forgiving with superhero movies, but this was complete schlock. Sony chose a hack director and screenwriters, and they delivered. Thor 2 was artful compared to this.

I'll take "It's body doublin' time!" over "It's morbin' time!" any day of the week.

And so would Netflix or HBO. A superhero whose power is being replaced at will by a hot nude stand-in doesn't make a lot of sense, but you know they'd fight over the adaptation rights for THAT one.

That sounds like if Gwenpool's had a sidekick.

Strictly speaking, Sony's Spider-Verse movies aren't part of the MCU, except for the Tom Holland trilogy. But with the multiverse in play now, they also kind of are? Maguire and Garfield were featured in a "canonical" MCU movie, so it stands to reason that Morbius is out there in Earth-20X6 or so, morbing it up with Batman and possibly Bane.

It was implied that Morbius was in Venom's universe, I believe.

Eh, it's par for the Internet. It's up there with Snakes on a Plane still being a meme even though the movie itself doesn't have a following.

"I have had it with these motherf*cking snakes on this motherf*cking plane"? Pure gold. We'll be repeating that forever. But actually watch the movie that line comes from? Man, ain't nobody got time for that shiat.

You've got to be careful with that Morbius guy around Time Lords.  You'll think you killed him then his brain will come back in a patchwork body and want to mind wrassle with you.
