2022 hasn’t been off to a great start for Sony Pictures, with all of their movies till now, such as Hotel Transylvania: Transformania, Uncharted, Morbius, and Father Stu receiving heavy criticism. Sony’s desperate attempt to build a cinematic universe while simultaneously trying to connect it to the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) has failed appallingly. Two more movies set in the SSU (Sony’s Spider-Man Universe) are currently in production, which are Kraven The Hunter and Madame Web. These are Sony’s last hope in order to kick off a well-received franchise, just like the MCU.
Other than the SSU, Sony is actually doing quite well in regard to CBMs. Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse and the MCU Spider-Man Trilogy were some of the best-reviewed CBMs of all time.
