But it usually doesn’t work out that way. Of course, bad movies happen to good actors all the time, but they don’t always get to make up for it before kicking the bucket.

Dreamcasting The Villains In Spider-Man’s Rogues Gallery

It seems that Sony is determined to create a Spider-Man cinematic universe of their own design. Over the last several weeks, various reports have confirmed that Sony has cast Tom Hardy as Venom in a standalone film, plan on featuring Carnage as the villain of said film, and even intend to give Mysterio and Kraven the Hunter movies of their very own.
