@ Local Trouble, I hate MCU, I don’t get what all the fuss is about. Half the characters don’t even resemble their comic book counter parts. And with corny jokes relentlessly pushed in my face, I’d rather pass altogether. Take Spider-Man for example, I have nothing against Tom Holland, but the Peter Parker I grew up knowing always struggled, and was full of pain and heart break. He made his own costumes and struggled to make ends meet. And most importantly no one knew his real identity. It was a character cursed with his own powers. Burdened even.
His corny jokes against bad guys were just his form of dealing with being Spider-Man. With Holland everything is just on a plate for him and it’s just too easy. (Talking to you there Mr Stark!) It’s almost a different character entirely.
The original Spider-Man films while not perfect nailed the essence of Spider-Man from the comics.
Into the spider-verse is another example of how to do this character.
Why can’t marvel get its own characters right? Yet Sony can? My conclusion is marvel could get their characters right if they wanted to, but Disney interferes too much.
