There has certainly been some confusion as of late regarding whether Venom and the Silver and Black film were a part of the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe. Last week, Sony producer Amy Pascal mentioned that Peter Parker could possibly pop up in the upcoming Venom and Black and Silver movies, since they apparently belong to the same universe.
However, Feige had said that Venom would not be a part of the MCU and so on. So what was the truth? Was Spider-Man: Homecoming just meant to be somewhere in the middle, where Venom and Black Cat would exist in that world, but never interact with the rest of the MCU.
Speaking with JoBlo, Feige cleared up some of the confusion and re-confirmed that it was only Spider-Man who was a part of the MCU.
“Right now, Spidey is in the MCU and it’s just Spidey. Civil War, Homecoming, we’ve already shot a lot of Tom Holland’s scenes in the upcoming Avengers films, and we’re just starting to solidify our plans for Homecoming 2 – we won’t call it that, whatever it is – which is exciting because it’ll be the first MCU movie after untitled Avengers in 2019. It’ll be the way Civil War informed everything in Homecoming, those movies will launch him off into a very new cinematic universe at that point. Those five movies are we’re focusing on.”
Notice how he says “right now,” meaning we never know what the future may hold. Until that time, we’ll just have to wait and see. Spider-Man will also be appearing in Avengers: Infinity War and two other solo movies, the second one being released after the second part of Infinity War, so probably at some point in 2019.
What do you think? Is there still a chance that Venom could eventually appear in the MCU? Will Spider-Man actually appear in the Venom movie? Let us know in the comments below!
5 Ways Venom Could Show Up In The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Even before Sony lent Spider-Man to Marvel Studios, there was talk about Sony doing their own spin-off films focusing on characters they owned, including both heroes and villains. The end of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 even teased a possible Sinister Six film. Many thought that Venom, one of Spider Man’s most popular villains, would also get his own film. Although he appeared in Sam Rami’s Spider-Man 3, Venom was less than well received. If anyone could use a character redemption, it was Eddie Brock.
Those hopes seemed to dash after The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was deemed a failure and Sony’s future with the Spider-Man character seemed uncertain. It seemed as if the movie gods smiled on fans as Sony worked out a partnership with Marvel Studios, which allowed Spider-Man to appear in Marvel Cinematic Universe films. Spider-Man’s first appearance in the MCU was in Captain America: Civil War and actor Tom Holland’s performance as the wall-crawler was universally praised.
But Sony’s not done doing their own thing. It was announced that a movie featuring Silver Sable and Black Cat was in the works. It was then revealed that Tom Hardy is attached to play Venom in another project. Marvel Studios has previously said that these projects would be based at Sony and exist outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, Amy Pascal recently said that the Silver Sable and Black Cat film, as well as Venom, are set within the same universe as Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Did she let something slip, or was this wishful thinking on her part? Either way, that led us here at Heroic Hollywood to think of ways that Venom could be incorporated into and show up in the MCU. Click Next to take a look…
