Spider-Man has but to web-sling his approach into the Sony Footage Universe of Marvel Characters (SPUMC), however there’s a plan in place on the firm to in the future make it occur. After releasing many Spider-Man motion pictures previously, Sony has since let Marvel Studios deal with the most recent incarnation of the character by bringing him into the MCU. In the meantime, Sony launched their very own separate cinematic universe in 2018 with Venom, which will probably be additional expanded with a number of upcoming motion pictures.
As a result of there wasn’t a lot of a point out of Spider-Man in Venom, it has been unclear if and when Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock will ever meet Peter Parker. There’s apparently no rush at Sony to convey Spidey into the SPUMC anytime quickly both. In a brand new interview with Selection, Sony Movement Image Group President Sanford Panitch revealed that the studio is so busy with different characters from the Marvel library proper now that they have not actually wanted Spider-Man. Nonetheless, as seen within the interview, he provides that Spidey assembly Venom could be “thrilling.”
“We do not actually consider our 900 characters because the Spidey-verse. We’ve a Marvel universe. The quantity of characters we now have – you realize, wait till you see this subsequent Venom. You do not miss Spider-Man… [but] it will be thrilling in the event that they do meet, proper?”
Panitch goes on to make clear that there is in reality a plan at Sony to convey Spidey into the SPUMC ultimately. No different particulars have been provided, however Panitch teases that the probabilities will probably be extra clear as soon as folks see what surprises Marvel Studios has in retailer for followers with Spider-Man: No Method Residence, which can embrace characters from Sony’s earlier Spider-Man motion pictures. He additionally notes his optimistic relationship with Marvel boss Kevin Feige.
“There truly is a plan. I feel now perhaps it is getting a bit extra clear for folks the place we’re headed and I feel when No Method Residence comes out, much more will probably be revealed. The nice factor is we now have this very glorious relationship with Kevin. There’s an unimaginable sandbox there to play with. We would like these MCU motion pictures to be completely large, as a result of that is nice for us and our Marvel characters, and I feel that is the identical factor on their facet. However we now have a terrific relationship. There’s numerous alternatives, I feel, which are going to occur.”
There are a lot of methods to interpret his feedback, however one chance Panitch might be alluding to right here is Tom Holland’s MCU Spidey additionally serving because the SPUMC Spider-Man. Spider-Man: No Method Residence will embrace Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock from Spider-Man 2 and Jamie Foxx’s Electro from The Superb Spider-Man 2, so we all know that it’ll introduce the live-action “Spider-Verse” into the MCU. This might simply as simply open the door for Holland’s Spider-man to slide into the SPUMC to face Venom.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage would be the first to broaden the SPUMC when it’s launched on Sept. 24, 2021. This will probably be adopted by Morbius in 2022 and Kraven the Hunter in 2023, with the latter only in the near past naming Aaron Taylor-Johnson because the Marvel antagonist. Maybe, as Panitch says, we’ll have a greater thought as to when Spider-Man will probably be coming in after Spider-Man: No Method Residence is launched on Dec. 17, 2021.
