Nothing makes me happier to see this small little show about zombies continue to gain popularity. It was absolutely horrific waiting a full year for season three and thankfully, CW has granted us with an earlier release date for season four. February 26th is looming and with only a month to go, we’ve been gifted with a teaser trailer that is exactly that: a tease!
Marvel has been releasing a lot of trailers recently. Jessica Jones S2, Deadpool 2, Avengers: Infinity War, and Black Panther. All badass. The latest teaser to be released today was Sony’s Venom movie, starring Tom Hardy. Taking place, supposedly; within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we’ve looked forward to seeing how the studio would pull off a film about the well-known symbiote. This morning we got our first look and it was…meh.
It’s no secret that not many enjoyed Suicide Squad. Let me separate myself from that crowd and voice that I indeed enjoyed this film. Yes, critique me, tell me I’m a fake nerd, and mock me for it. All things considering, though; do you really think that Justice League or Batman vs Superman was better? Enough of being snarky; Suicide Squad 2 is confirmed to happen and Rick Flagg’s actor Joel Kinnaman has a feeling the sequel will be more grounded.
Having an MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) version of Spider-Man is great, but did we really need Sony to produce a film centering around the sometimes villain/sometimes anti-hero? Who cares! It features Tom Hardy himself as Eddie Brock and in the end, isn’t that enough to reel in fans? It’s enough to make us stop asking how does this movie in anyway associate itself with the MCU and Tom Holland’s Spidey?
In all seriousness though, with a new age of superhero films, we need a movie centered around someone unexpected. There have been a handful of Batman and Superman remakes. Spider-Man himself has had three live versions. It’s time for someone unexpected to make a splash. And considering Venom’s last big screen debut was in Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man 3, he needed some sprucing up.
It all started in 2008 with the first release of Iron Man. From the first introduction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a movie featuring the Avengers going up against Thanos has been highly anticipated. Here we are, years later, a dozen new characters introduced, and only months away from the biggest event in the MCU. Avengers: Infinity War is in our sights and Good Morning America just released the first trailer.
