These are the manic ramblings that go through my head at all hours of the day or night.

I did not think about this, but this is a brilliant theory. So much of the Big 2’s creative motivations recently have been about putting their IP ducks in a row so they can keep pumping out blockbuster thats tie neatly to what’s going on in their current continuity. It’s not a bad idea given that the easiest way to lose a potential new reader all jazzed up after seeing the new Spider-Man movie is to say “ACTUALLY, the real Spider-Man is possessed by Dr. Octopus (who is dead, btw) and is a huge douchebag. ENJOY!” I just always find it interesting to see where the strings are being pulled.
