Sony has repeatedly yelled about its plans to give every outlying Spider-Man character their own movie, whether it makes sense or not. So it’s a bit of a surprise that this week, they revealed they’re giving one of those characters their own TV series instead.
There have been changes over the years, but the market arc of a video game console is usually to release it at a high price, then gradually reduce that price to keep the fire of demand stoked, then finally to sell it cheaply as a “beginner’s alternative” when it’s replaced by something more advanced. This hasn’t been the case with EVERY console, mind you (the Wii U never dropped in price throughout its lifetime….sheer madness), but that’s generally how it works.
When Sony is finished with the supporting cast of Spider-Man, will the webslinger have any villains left? We have to wonder after Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who has been cast as Kraven the Hunter in Sony’s upcoming movie of the same name, described his character to Variety recently.
Who’s behind the dimension-hopping shenanigans in the anticipated sequel Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse? Director Christopher Miller revealed the answer today. He’s a very Dalmatian-looking man.
It crashed and burned last spring, much like a vampire trying to become a bat for the first time, but Morbius has had a weird second life on social media. “Fans” have repeatedly screened Jared Leto’s fanged antihero over and over on Twitch accounts and memed the flick’s two-faced poster endless times. So in response, Sony has agreed to put Morbius back on the big screen for a limited time, even though it’s available now on home formats.
If you ignored the Sony Playstation State Of Play this afternoon — and given how the last few have gone, I don’t blame you — you missed some big announcements and massive trailers. Isn’t that always the way? But have no fear, we’ve corralled them all into one handy, condensed page that is way faster to skim than that whole 41-minute video would’ve been.
Morbius has been the butt of jokes in nerd circles since it came out; pretty much everyone I know thinks the film’s mere existence is hilarious. In the comics, Morbius is a minor Spider-Man villain who only shows up sometimes and isn’t very popular. One common comment I hear is “How does a Morbius movie even make sense?”
Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse was originally scheduled to come out THIS MONTH…but it was delayed until October 7. If you think that’s not a long wait from now, think again: it just got pushed back further, all the way to June 2023.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is one of those rare films I never hear anything bad about. The general consensus is that they nailed the trilogy with this one (and while they were at it, resolved any and all hanging plot threads from previous trilogies). Soon you’ll be able to watch it in the privacy of your own home on March 22….er, TOMORROW, actually.
Piracy of entertainment was once prohibited in Russia. The Russian Government dislikes the West, but the locals adore its popular culture. Russian citizens do not have access to Hollywood television, films, or video games made in other countries. Notably, American content is primarily popular around the world. It is not the residents’ responsibility. Unfortunately, the invasion of Ukraine caused firms to terminate connections with the country. Sony, for example, will not be releasing any films in Russia. Because of Putin’s activities, Microsoft postponed the release of their most recent AAA title games.
Sony, makers of fine and unavailable Playstation products, announced this morning they are purchasing game studio Bungie for $3.6 billion. It’s a move that would otherwise have been completely unexpected if rival Microsoft hadn’t been loudly throwing its cash around lately.
We’ve been waiting impatiently for any crumb of information regarding Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, the sequel to everyone’s favorite animated superhero movie. That’s why we were shocked when, with no warning at all, the first teaser for the film dropped last night in its entirety. We’ll take it!
