    That's the easy money bet. One can only hope that with the success of WW all the suits at DC/WB will sit back and get the fuck out of the way and let's the directors go with their version of the story they want to tell without all of the interference that seems to plague their movies.

    I'm pulling for them to get their shit together.
    Pass the god damn butter.

    My piece:

    1. Marvel kinda got put in a spot by having Spiderman land in their laps in time for Civil War. They actually remained as faithful to the comics as they could by having Spiderman and Iron Man team up. They kinda had to make do with what they had to work with to integrate him into the MCU as quickly as possible. Based on this, having Tony as his mentor is the most efficient way to keep things moving. This is also faithful to the Ultimate Spiderman stuff because Tony is his liaison with the Avengers there as well, so there's a precedent 

    2. Have they established that there is no Uncle Ben? I've read that they intentionally skipped the origin story because it was kinda played out. Perhaps Ben is something they're saving for a later movie. They already skipped any mention of his parents and most of how he got his powers. It's possible that they are treating Homecoming as Spiderman's up-to-speed movie and they'll let the drama in later. Sony looks to be treating this as the doorway to their own little universe, so I'm sure we will get an oversaturation of Spiderman lore over the next 5 years

    3. I'm not a fan at all of the way Marvel has kinda multiplied their heroes over the last 10-15 years. Multiple Hulks, Multiple Venoms, Multiple Spidermans, etc. I hate it. I'd much rather them create new characters and abilities than plod away at the same thing. So the idea that Flash can't be this Agent Venom means dick to me. I'm not interested AT ALL in Miles Morales. I couldn't care less about his uncle being in Homecoming. But other people like that shit and if it works in the movies Ill be fine with it. Like Jobe, I suffered through a childhood with no Marvel movies at all, so having this successful string of films is a godsend and it makes me hate millenials that much more when they complain about them. Spoiled little shits...

    4. To include Venom in the current continuity, they're going to have to substantially change the sequence of events that lead up to him. Im assuming Spiderman gets the alien costume during the Infinity War, but that will already be a severe deviation from the comic. You're also skipping 30 years of lore to get to Venom. In the comics, Spiderman is married and out of college before Venom is a thing. To expect them to do the entire Spiderman story according to how its presented in the comics would put a Venom movie 5-10 years down the road. I dont see anyone complaining about that

    and 5. Zach Snyder's daughter killed herself recently, so he removed himself from Justice League. DC being DC, they hired Joss Whedon to finish shooting it. Perhaps he can find a little bit of humor and soul and not have it just be one grimdark series of events leading into another
