Amy Pascal & Kevin Feige Clarify That Venom, Black Cat Will Not Be Part…

Amy Pascal & Kevin Feige Clarify That Venom, Black Cat Will Not Be Part Of MCU. The pair were making their press rounds for Spider-Man: Homecoming.

It’s been a whirlwind when it comes to the news and subsequent confusion regarding the place of the Venom and Black Cat movies. Sony producer Amy Pascal and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige have been making their press rounds this weekend to promote the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Fandango’s Managing Editor, Erik Davis, spoke with both of them and they confirmed that, while Venom and the Silver and Black movies will be a part of the Marvel comics universe, they will not be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

You can read the tweets below.

*When speaking with ComicBook.com, this was what Pascal had to say:

“Here’s what we’re doing: all these characters are a part of the Marvel comic book universe. In that universe, they are all related to each other. Kevin [Feige] makes characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. These characters are separate, except for Spidey, who belongs in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which is why he’s there.”

This still doesn’t answer the question of whether Tom Holland’s Spider-Man will be appearing in the Venom movie, for example, or if both films will exist within the Homecoming universe and how that could affect the characters moving forward. For now, it seems the Spider-Man: Homecoming is the central movie and that Venom, Black Cat, and Silver Sable will not appear in any of the other Marvel films.

Spider-Man: Homecoming has been receiving praise so far and Feige confirmed earlier this weekend that its sequel will be coming after part two of Avengers: Infinity War.

Directed by Jon Watts, Homecoming stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Tony Revolori, Kenneth Choi, Hannibal Buress, Abraham Attah, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr.

A young Peter Parker (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

Spider-Man: Homecoming will be released in theaters on July 7, 2017.
