I have a sneaking suspicion that these press releases are part of the last ditch negotiations from either side, trying to get public support behind their position.

I've yet to see a single shred of public support in favor of Sony :D

Actually, sentiments on reddit seemed to have shifted in Sony's favor, the last I saw.

Whether it’s Sony or someone else’s, the continued evolution of Stan’s characters and his legacy deserves multiple points of view. When my father died, no one from Marvel or Disney reached out to me. From day one, they have commoditized my father’s work and never shown him or his legacy any respect or decency. In the end, no one could have treated my father worse than Marvel and Disney’s executives.”

I'm not diving into it because I really don't care enough to suss out the truth, but wasn't she the daughter accused of abusing Stan Lee and siphoning off money from him with his scummy lawyer?

That was his assistant.

Meh. This has moved from a film Im morbidly curious about to one I feel sure will be good.
I feel bad for Tom Holland. A boy his age needs stability.

I'm glad it's back in, but this corporate bickering is tiresome to the nth degree.

I still really want to see Tom Holland face Venom and the others in the SMU. It would be nice if we could have both.

Miles Morales would also be acceptable but I think we need a Spiderman to pull that universe together, even if he is a secondary guest character. I don't want to see another actor playing Peter Parker at this stage, even if he is from a different verse.

Using Miles could be a great move creatively, although I dont know what sort of impact that confusion might have on general audiences if you advertise Spider-Man and they expect an avengerverse movie.

I feel zero tension for this Spidey to meet this Venom though. Their conflict can never be as intimate as it should have been. At this point Venom is just a superpowered Punisher. Eddie Brock is a hero.
Could be interesting to have Spidey tracking down the dude who is biting the heads off convenience store robbers?
