I really hope Venom remains separate from all the "multiverse" discussion. Once you start knotting together threads from other ostensibly unrelated tales because "Marvel," you handcuff yourself to a past and future you can't independently affect; Venom becomes but a piece of the puzzle and far less interesting and fun in a larger world that will likely leave most people feeling like "meh, I've already seen End Game; not waiting around another 10 years to see it again."
Well at this point it's entirely non-canon, because Venom STARTED with Eddy Brock, and there is zero connection to Peter Parker, and no real reason that they would have a weird relationship with him. So trying to shoehorn it in with both of the current narrative timelines would be so weird. They might as well just let it stay it's own thing.

So what's the deal here? Is this part of the multiverse? Its the same universe as Mobius, and that as the Vulture from Spiderman Homecoming in it.
*shakes magic eightball*
Yes Mobius, No Multiverse.

I believe Venom is still completely licensed/Owned by Sony so Marvel isn't going to touch it. It would only benefit sony and the production control on venom isn't being done by Marvel which Disney is very concerned about these days.

2018 was the first Venom movie. This was going to be released back in 2020 but thanks to everybody's favorite disease it got pushed back almost a year to September 24th 2021. I hope they made good use of that time.

I'm just glad this movie will start out with Venom and Brock together, thus we can witness the wacky hijinks from the start. The only actual problem with the last movie was how long it took setting things up, it took roughly a third of the movie for Venom and Brock to bond thus getting us to the part we actually came to see. I still think they could've cut a few minutes here and there to get to that part faster.

That was my singular complaint with that movie, how long it took to get to the part everyone was there to see. At least once it got there, it didn't disappoint thereafter.

On topic, my gf detests superhero movies, but actually really liked Venom once I made her watch it upon Blu-ray release, so instead of allowing me to "cheat on her," and go on a movie date with our friend Monika who loves superhero movies, she says we could have a "threesome" this time; she wants to see it too after I showed her the trailer.

What is it about superhero movies that she detests so much, yet she likes Venom? Just curious. I know not everyone likes the superhero genre, so I'm not bothered. Not everyone's going to like the same thing.

Honestly, we're both pretty burned out on superhero movies after the exhausting ride that has been the MCU for over a decade, but she liked Venom because it was something different, darker. Everyone knows Spider-Man and Iron Man and Thor, etc. and how all the movies they've been in over the past several years kinda blend together, but she'd never heard of Venom, so for her, it was more a supernatural film and less a superhero film. It didn't spend it hours throwing a bunch of same-ol' characters at her again, and again and again...

The only hero films I've really like in the past several years have been Venom and both Deadpools for largely those same reasons, and she liked Aquaman because she thinks Jason Mamoa is hot and Wonder Woman because she likes strong female characters, other than that, I can't tell you anything we've enjoyed or "wanted" to see. We were "kindapped" in 2019 by my friend who took us on a double date to see End Game in the theater. After 3 hours of a Marvel all-skate, we were both nearly physically ill on hero shit. That same friend is insisting we watch the Justice League, but a 4 hours, we've no intention of ever doing so.

Quite understandable. I have similar feelings. I still have yet to see the Snyder cut of Justice League, nor do I want to. The MCU I'm not completely done, but there are still some stuff I want to see. But right now, I'm more interested in adaptions of non MCU superheroes or the more or lesser known ones. Shoot, I'm more invested with some of the future DCEU movies than the future MCU projects.

Yeah for me, I've just lost much drive to see the films. Around Ant-Man, they started feeling formulaic to me. I was genuinely bored during Ant-Man, fell asleep during Doctor Strange's climax, and never bothered to see AM 2. I've become way more selective with the MCU content I consume, mostly because they are starting to branch out into character's and storylines I just don't care for. I might watch something months later, if I have nothing else to do, like WandaVision, but it's not a driving force for me.

Now, if they do something with a character I really like, like Kamala Khan, I will be more interested, because I just like her character. But just consuming all of it simply because it's got the MCU stamp? Nah, I'm kinda done.

As a sidenote @Xprimentyl if the two of you listen to audiobooks, I'd strongly recommend you check out the Super Powereds series by Drew Hayes. It's a super hero...well I don't want to call it a deconstruction, but it kind of is. It's very much "What would it look like in the real world, if super heroes were real." It's not totally grim dark like Watchmen, but a lot of thought went into how it would change "everyday life." The framework, is Super Hero College. Not high school, college. And it's REALLY damn good. If you like My Hero Academia's premise, but would like to see it with more of a mature angle, and with kids slightly more mature (namely allowing for sex and recreational drug/alcohol), I'd say check it out.

I decided after End Game that I the only "hero" shit I'd be interested in was Deadpool's taking the piss out of the MCU and genuinely being entertaining (as Deadpool as a character should be,) and Venom, my childhood favorite character; anything else, I don't actively avoid, but neither do I seek it out. I can't think of anything else I'd like to see.

That actually does sound pretty interesting; thank you for the recommendation.
