Week in Geek #64: No More MCU Spider-Man, No Time to Die and The Matrix 4

Posted by Anthony Mango Friday, August 23, 2019
Welcome to another edition of WEEK IN GEEK here at Fanboys Anonymous—a rundown of some of the events, news and stories that went down over the past few days in the geek culture spectrum.

This week in geek culture Fanboys Anonymous nerd recap

Here are some of the topics I felt like voicing my opinions about:

Sony and Disney No Longer Co-Producing Spider-Man Movies

So Disney wants a better deal and Sony says no, and now, Sony is going to try to make their own Spider-Man movies.

AWFUL. RIDICULOUS. TERRIBLE. Nothing at all good can come out of this.

This means the MCU is going to suffer from not having Spider-Man in the mix, along with his characters more available elsewhere, and the creative direction that the Spider-Man films have received with help from people who know what they're doing will go away.

I've remained firm that the worst aspects of these two Tom Holland films have been ideas I'm pretty sure are implemented from Sony, not Marvel, and with the way the past movies have gone and their atrocious ideas of spin-offs and everything, I'm SO not into this idea.

This is absolutely terrible and when the next movie ends up being a financial success based on the previous two films, but actually is panned by critics, then Sony will realize FOR THE UMPTEENTH TIME that they don't know what the hell they're doing.

I'm not in any way a fan of this.

Bond 25 = No Time to Die

I don't remember offhand if this is one of the titles that they had on the backburner like Risico or The Hildebrand Rarity, but I like it nevertheless. I've always been fond of the more flowery soap opera type Bond titles like Tomorrow Never Dies, For Your Eyes Only, From Russia with Love and The World is Not Enough. Thumbs up.

See, this is a good move from Sony...unlike this Spider-Man travesty.

The Matrix 4

Technically, isn't it kind of The Matrix 5 because of the animated film? Anyway, this movie happening strikes me as another example of people saying they can't figure out an original idea, so they just want to capitalize on nostalgia.

But hey, maybe they do have a good idea. I don't know how they can do another film with all the dead characters and all, though.
