I still am not happy with Sony's plans. Still hoping for them to call it a day after Venom because I've had enough of their control over the Spider-Man film series plus if Marvel Studios decides to do a Blade reboot, I rather have Morbius in that film as a foe to him.
Sony's not just going to sit on all their rights waiting for Marvel's every move.

Plus, if a Blade reboot ever does happen, then Morbius could be an anti-hero to him. Heck, this Morbius movie could push public desire for your Blade reboot.

Yeah, no. I don't expect the three films in development to be made at all and I seriously have had enough of Sony's plans to do so. I've waited so long for Spidey to appear in the MCU but I don't want a long time for Marvel to fully regain the film rights from Sony, especially I'm fed up with their meddling and this is not going to help them at all. Sorry but I have to disagree with you on this.

No, I don't think that this will be the film to push public desire for the Blade reboot.

That's not my opinion, that's the truth.

No company would hand over billions of dollars worth of intellectual property licenses to a competitor because the products would be subjectively better. They're going to make money with what they legally own, that's their only job.

Let me clarify. I disagree with you on that they should be made, not what you think as in me implying that your comment was an opinion.

No company would hand over billions of dollars worth of intellectual property licenses to a competitor because the products would be subjectively better. They're going to make money with what they legally own, that's their only job.
And also, I never said that Marvel regaining them would necessarily mean subjectively better stuff as I don't expect the MCU version of the X-Men to be subjectively better than Fox's version.

After re-reading your comment, I'll clarify my comment one last time. I disagree with that they are not just going to sit on all their rights waiting for Marvel's every move but I don't necessarily mean that this would result in subjectively better stuff and I therefore apologise for not understanding your comment originally.

You're right that Sony have every legal right to do these films but they have every legal right not doing them as well.

Obviously that, but this isn't about legality, it's about financial responsibility.

When a corporation spends a lot of money on something, they have a responsibility to make money off of what they bought. To avoid it due to previous creative missteps may make them look better to the people not interested in their film slate, but they are obliged to look good to their investors.

Understandable.

You do realise that he wasn't to blame for Suicide Squad for being a critical disaster, right?

He certainly didn't help. Jared Leto's performance and behind the scenes activity are only part of that movie's many flaws. The point there is that he's not an actor people want to see do comics again because of how bad he did the Joker not that he alone made that movie a critical disaster.


I can't wait to see him as Morbius and find out he actively stalked his co-stars on set, hid in their closets to watch them sleep, refused to come out during daylight, drank actual blood, and tried to kill/bite his costars for their blood on several occasions of "method acting". I feel like it's good money to bet on at least two of those things happening during filming honestly.

He is a method character actor. Which can cause a lot of problems. If the movie was awesome people would be applauding him for what he did. Since it sucks they want to latch onto every negative detail they can blame it. Leto wasn't the problem with the movie. It was the writing and directing that were of issue.

That's a huge misconception. What Leto did isn't really what method acting is, it's just being a jerk and justifying it because it was playing pretend and pretending to be method, I think he even actually tries to call his behavior method acting too just to show how bad he is at it.

Method acting does not involve "staying in character" at all times. In a very simplified explanation its more like thinking like the character when playing the character instead of thinking like you remembering lines and directions. You through different processes come up with how the character would think and act in situations, and then do that in the scene instead of just repeat a line or follow a direction. You do not mail someone dead rats or slip used tampons into another actor's trailer because you're in character off screen, that's just being an awful person.

Again had the film been successful people applaud that behavior. I don't condone it but I don't blame him for the movies failures. He one man can not cause that film to be that badly done.

I don't think he'd be applauded even if the movie was successful, that behavior is kind of universally bad and looked down on. This really has nothing to do with the success of the movie either, just the bad reception of him as an actor and human being. That said, Leto's not the sole reason that movie was badly received but he is a reason, he's a symptom of a greater problem.
