Look, I would have preferred if the creators of “The Matrix” had kept Neo and Trinity dead. That’s not to say I’m not going to see the latest installment, because I know I will.

Although Spider-Man hasn’t met Venom due to his responsibilities with the Avengers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, 2018’s Venom, Sony’s first foray into the Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters, gained enough critic and box office success to warrant a sequel.
