The “Oh, No, this looks PERFECT” Spider-Man PS4 Honest Trailer.

Their honest opinion?  ZOMG.

This is apparently the best Spider-Man game EVAR, and naturally it’s exclusive to the PS4.  Starting to think that maybe I picked the wrong system in the Console Wars*.  Not that the Xbox 360 isn’t obsolete anyway…

*Of course, I’m a PC gamer anyway.  But it must be admitted that the PS4 has some fine titles associated with it.

Can’t *quite* believe that Spider-Man will be in the Venom flick.

I mean, I understand the tactical surprise, here.  Having Spider-Man show up in Venom would be a lot like having That Thing That Happened In That Movie recently.  I just don’t know how they’d keep it a secret for this long, is all.  Or even if they’d want to.  When they got Spidey for Civil War, Marvel made really, really sure that you knew about it ahead of time.

Also, there’s That Thing That Happened In That Other Movietoo.  I mean, yes, obviously things will be resolved there. But trying to put Venom in the middle of the MCU’s continuity is going to be… interesting.

RIP, Steve Ditko.

Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Squirrel Girl. Steve Ditko was an extremely private person, and it is unclear if he had any family or loved ones.  But I will be a lucky man if I ever create something half as iconic as Spider-Man. That character is one of the images that they will remember from our era.  There are worse legacies to have; in fact, there aren’t that many that are better.

Miles Morales nod/hint in Spider-Man Homecoming.

Interesting: “Reddit user 1800DESOLATE spotted a Miles Morales nod during Spider-Man: Homecoming’s credits sequence. The specific frame for [Jon] Watts’ directorial credit features Spider-Man’s iconic mask in the background. But as it turns out, zooming out the screen’s perspective reveals Miles Morales’ black and red mask layered behind Peter Parker’s.” It could also be a photo negative, except that Morales’ uncle Aaron Davis (aka The Prowler) appeared in Spider-Man Homecoming.

So, *will* there be a Spider-Man (Homecoming) 3?

It’s an interesting question: apparently Tom Holland is under the impression that there’s going to be a trilogy of standalone Spider-Man movies.  Certainly there’s going to be a sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming, because that’s already been agreed to. And Spider-man will be in Avengers: Infinity War, because that’s already been agreed to, too. But Holland was specifically talking about a third Spider-Man standalone, which has not been agreed to. As we all know by now, Spidey’s in the MCU as the result of some extremely intricate negotiations between two media conglomerates who both had something to gain by working together (Disney got to put Spider-Man in a flick, Sony got the same with regard to Iron Man, and probably some other MCU earners).  As that article notes, if they want to continue this, there’s got to be a new deal.

I suspect that there will be a new deal, actually. But that’s only if Spider-Man: Homecoming is a blockbuster. If it is, then sharing the toys is in everybody’s long-term business interests. Sony makes money off of Marvel intellectual properties in a way that doesn’t make them feel like they’re making the universe slightly worse, Disney gets access to Spider-Man merchandising revenue streams without having to be even a little bit illegal, oh, yeah, the fans get to see Spidey and Cap and Thor hang out, and everybody is happy.

If Spider-Man: Homecoming doesn’t tank. If it does, well, that’s why they call it an experiment. Just business, boychik.

The most interesting cinematic conspiracy theory I’ve seen today (Spider-man/Life/Venom).

OK, so basically Sony is going to make a Venom movie.   …OK.  You know something?  That’s fine. That could be watchable. Lord knows Sony is probably smarting at the way that it had to kiss up to Marvel to get Spider-Man to appear in the MCU; they want to make some money of their own, they’ve got the rights to Venom, it might not suck.  And, hey, it can back into the MCU the way that Deadpool kind of pretended to do with the Helicarrier and everything. So… all right.  Good luck with that, Sony. I mean it. (more…)

So, Spider-Man: Homecoming put up today a teaser trailer to tomorrow’s trailer.

And we’re all gonna click, because we’re all weak like that.  Plus, web-wings and mechanical web-shooters.  Although I liked Sam Raimi’s biological web-shooters and I feel no shame in saying so.
