Even if he does not follow the rules, you can earn a billion dollars. I ask them what the movie is, whether it’s Deadpool or Guardians of the Galaxy or Suicide Squad or The Joker, … Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Daredevil … Which one fails? No. That’s what I’m trying to say in Hollywood. Why Spawn enter a dark corner that does not follow the norms? Why is it going to be the little thing that’s not going to swim upstream? Of course yes. keep the budget small, of course, it will sell, and now we can say, “From the co-creator of Venom” on top. Cool. “
One point: The bubble for comic strip movies is simply not bright, although many continue to insist on doing so. Venom Despite Critical criticism from him, reported $ 855 million worldwide, and this film had a budget of $ 100 million to worry about.
