They'll keep going until they have a massive failure. I just wish they put more care into making enjoyable movies out of their franchises and not just cranking whatever they could out of them.

Well, nowadays (just like times of yore), these franchises didn't care about quality as much as quantity. Going back to the 40's & 50's and slightly before. They'd give you every sequel and spinoff you can imagine.

Honestly, I quite enjoyed the cheese factory of some schlock film series. Even the Resident Evil and Underworld stuff. As for MCU Spider-Man, the only thing that irks me is Feige refusing to use some classic villains like Black Cat or Venom. I mean, I get they want to get to those very CLASSIC ones from Lee & Ditko, but altering the orgins for some (unless done right like Mysterio) is kinda annoying.

With all due respect, I don't think it's that Feige refuses to use certain villains, but he prefers to build up to them. Like, doesn't Spider-Man meet Black Cat and Venom when he's at college or something?

Or maybe Sony is being stingy with what characters and lore Marvel can use since the movie rights to those characters are strictly with them and Marvel is loaning them out.

The point is that Sony had their way last year when they tried to take back Spider-Man from Marvel and now (based on the Morbius trailer), they get to make micro-references to the MCU, or at least whatever pertains to Spidey.

But now all this talk of TV shows and untitled spin-offs has me thinking Sony is pushing their luck again, so I’m just wondering how much longer will they go until their house of cards topples over...

And hey, if they want to do their own version of Suicide Squad, fine. But why would they reel in Roberto Orci? That's like a farmer taking a snake home, getting bitten by the snake, and then taking the snake back home eight years later.

I stand corrected, because this is really a battle of both studios and we're watching the compromises and results.

Remember those rumors about a movie regarding Jessica Drew, the Spider-Woman?

Looks like they're back with a vengeance with a new rumor saying Feige is interested in teaming with Sony Pictures for a Spider-Woman solo movie.
Honestly, with so closely tied to SWORD, and being a classic female protagonist, I can't blame Feige. Meaning he'll port her over in MCU easy.

Happy Birthday to the great Akira Toriyama!
Today, variety in my country's Cartoon Network's schedule has died.
I'm Planning to make a New Qubo schedule With Several New and Returning Shows (With one of them being Jacob Two-Two), No Paid Programming and the Return of the 4 hour Marathons.
Today marks the 10th Year Anniversary of Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated and the 7th Year Anniversary of its series finale. It ended up becoming my favorite adaptation of the Scooby-Doo Franchise and found out about Lewis Black by name (I had heard his voice in some earlier shows).
Happy birthday to Akira Toriyama. My moniker here should make it clear that I am a fan of the DB Franchise.
