Cotdamn was this mess terrible
I imagine if Tom Hardy wasn't in it, this movie would be savaged and dead on arrival. Sony, Amy Pascal, and Avi Arad should be ashamed of themselves for putting out something with little effort. Say what you want, but let's be real, almost every diehard comic book fan out there knew that this mess wasn't going to work the moment we learned that Spiderman wasn't in it. They lost the goodwill of whoever was leftover after that when they changed their tone and made it PG-13 instead of hard R. In their defense, I think they knew they didn't have a Logan/Deadpool on their hands, so they toned it down to at least pad the numbers with that under 18 ticket money.We can only hope that this tanks hard enough so that Sony has to give up on their Spiderman-less Spider-verse, and maybe sell off the rights to the better villains back to Disney/Marvel, who actually knows what to do with them.
