Sony’s Spider-Man Universe
Sony’s Spider-Man Universe first two movies include a number of scenes that don’t appear in the comics. What do you think? For those who have never read the Marvel comics, the Sony Pictures’ Spider-Man Universe is an alternate universe where Peter Parker was bitten by the spider and became the world’s greatest superhero.
The first movie, Spider-Man, features a number of scenes that are not present in the comics and even has some characters that are not from the comics.
The second movie, Spider-Man 2, continues this trend with more scenes and more changes. In this issue, we will examine the scenes from Spider-Man 2 that were not in the comics and see if we can figure out why they were added. First, we must examine what was in the original comics. In the early issues, Peter was still in high school and was very much in love with his girlfriend, Mary Jane. He also had a best friend named Harry Osborn. Harry was the rich kid who lived across the street from them. When Peter first started to turn into Spider-Man, he would often hang out at Harry’s house.
Morbius Release Date and Rating
The US release of the film is scheduled for January 28, 2022 and is rated PG-13
Excited to see how Sony handles the Morbius story and February cannot come soon enough. May be a fun, somewhat family friendly horror adventure.
