Subject: Don't hate me, but..
In reply to: Comicality 's message, "Also...I mean, I really love Morbius as a character, and I love vampires, and I think Jared Leto is a really great actor and a perfect choice for the role...but is it selfish of me to want this whole Sony 'Spider-Man Villain' franchise to fail? :(" on 01:50:48 01/14/20 Tue

I actually prefer the Sony movies, if I'm honest.

Although I do love Tom Holland, I was really excited when his name was being discussed for casting, because I've followed him since 2008 when he was cast as Billy Elliot. It was awesome to see this relatively unknown kid given a huge role.

I know the Spider-man movies made in the 00s, didn't make as much money, but they were a lot more fun to watch, for me. I just don't like what Marvel's done with Spider-man since MCU. They made him Iron Man's 'Robin'.

Tony gave him his suit, his web shooter upgrades, Web Wings, Spider signal, and every other gadget Peter himself made in comics. He also came up with the "Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man" nickname for him and most of Homecoming indirectly revolved around Tony Stark. Both Peter Parker & the villains were motivated by Tony Stark. One has a desire to please him, the other has a desire to steal from him, and becomes a villain because of him.

Tony did everything for Peter. He even gave Peter a version of Uncle Ben's speech after Ferry fight with Shocker. He's his Robin,. He even has a similar story to Robin. "Billionaire finds an orphaned street type kid and sees immense potential in him and takes him under his wing" His suit is exactly like Iron Man's suit too, even has an A.I.

But hey, it's making them lots of money, so why change the winning formula, right? I know I am in the minority, but it is what it is. I'm happy for other people who are having fun with the films. :)
