Does Sony or Marvel for that matter want their first symbiote in the movies to be one that's not the Venom symbiote?
I mean the majority of them are all derivatives of Venom or Carnage. I know of one that was out in space hopping from host to host eating brains and that's about it. The rest are literally all related to the Venom symbiote in some way. Now that's not to say they can't just create a new one since the concept is relatively simple and they can just go their own way and not directly follow how it was the comics like they've done with other things but I'm not really seeing it as of now given we don't even know what GotG2 is going to be about. From an it's possible angle sure but I think Gunn has a good handle things and a vision for what fits and what doesn't for what's probably gonna be a trilogy. After he leaves and moves to Thunderbolts or something then whoever is up next can probably do that other stuff. Hopefully by then Disney just get Spidey back altogether.
At best we might get a reference to symbiotes or some alien with a symbiote in the sequel.
Plus like I've said I'm not sure the deal is that flexible. I can see Feige having the ability talk his way in to getting it and being able to use more stuff from the Spidey properties would be cool but I wouldn't be big on hoping for that yet.
Besides, with Cap Marvel, they have their other angle to do space ****. So Sony properties aside, some of that other stuff mentioned in the article can be used.
