    Will Sony destroy MCU ?? It's just that I'm really wary how will this turn out . I'm not hating on Sony but the past movies they have makes me wanna flip the table after I received this news .

    Nope Venom movie and Spider-Man: Homecoming do take place in the same universe & are connected . they may be different locations, but it will still all be in the same world. Kevin Feige confirmed that the vemon movie wouldn’t be set within the MCU . Also carnage will be in vemons movie can't wait !!!

    I'm really excited to hear this - although, I agree; I would've been curious to see what Sony would've done with a Venom universe. Could've given us some interesting new takes on the character - and I think they could've done it without Spiderman, if they were to go with the Flash Thompson Venom. Would've also been interesting to see what interactions between Venom and Black Cat/Silver Sable would be like in a world without Spiderman...

    Still, this news has actually gotten me hyped for Phase 4 - which I didn't expect. :)

    It's simple. They can't use or mention MCU characters in these films. But they can use Peter Parker / Spiderman / Tom Holland.

      +Pedro Guida No, they'll refernce things in the Mcu but probably will never cross over until phase 4 or 5 or something. Like the Netflix but they'll crossover later this phase or early next phase.

    "Jointly" is a bit of a stretch John. You know that Fiege is a showman and he would NEVER let this news come out this way. I'm really surprised that you are grabbing onto this hook line and sinker. I'm not saying it couldn't be true, but Fiege is clearly blindsided here. Even if it's true this is not how he would have wanted it to get out.

  • Zach Gerrity

    What a clickbaity title, I think it was clear for Feige's face that she had no idea what she was talking about they didn't 'jointly' let anything be known. Amy was just running her mouth and Feige just sat there uncomfortably.

    mos def don't like. an r rated venomverse could have been well intriguing especially if they could make deals to take all the most notable and viscous characters with ruthless worlds like Blade and Moon Knight, the type of characters Netflix would mostly go after and bargain characters like Doc Oc or Scorpion cause the MCEU always use their villians to put the heroes over. for those who say "what about Baron Zimo??", can we really say he's a villain cause he seemed more like an anti-hero to me. but it's whatever..

    john stop being a pussy. venom without spiderman would be AWFUL. THERE IS NO WAY YOU COULD MAKE THAT GOOD. imagine a vegeta movie with no goku. joker movie where batman does not exist, L without Light Yagami. defeats the point of the character existing. the fox xmen films are also awful because characters and storylines are not handled right. everything just needs to go to Marvel

  • Sterling Archer

    I think people are misconstruing this whole thing. She is talking of Tom Holland's Spider-man being part of the Sony-verse. It was mentioned a while back that his MCU contract ends at 'Spider man HC 2' but he has a third film left with Sony. They are talking about bringing him over, history and all, into the Sony-verse where Venom, Sable and Black Cat will exist.

    I think that's why Feige was surprised/shocked/sad; she's already setting up Holland Spider-man within Sony-verse before his MCU debut is even out.

    I doubt Venom, Silver Sable or Black Cat will be showing up in MCU.

    Also, Feige looks plain shocked/outraged as she goes on to mention how Sony's worlds will be 'Adjuncts' to his MCU...

    Edit: I've been reading the comments and I have to say, Pascal has done this very cleverly. They are technically 'Adjuncts' as Holland will bring that 'link' over with him yet Disney/Marvel/Feige haven't/won't approve anything. Any Sony/Marvel films will have Marvel branding (if not Marvel | Studios) and they now have the association, and Hype, of the MCU for their new Sony-verse films.

    How many people are going to know the difference? The people on this comment section know more than the average consumer and most here believe they heard her say 'potential cross overs into MCU'. To the average consumer, Sony-man and the associated universe will become just another MCU movie. "Very sneaky, sir."

  • Hismajesty

    Its the right move and I think it going to be cool how they bring the two together in a spider man 2 or 3 movies, because I think they will merge the two after both stand alone films.

    I will begrudgingly accept this *IF* Marvel has the same kind of say in the movies as it did in Spiderman. If not, I am afraid this is the beginning of Sony applying its reverse-Midas touch to the MCU.

  • Anthony DiFrancesco

    I'm thinking that Venom will be to the MCU as Agents of Shield or Marvel Netflix is to the MCU. It's technically the same universe, but the stories are very much separate. Just my thoughts though.

  • Josh Castic Show
    Josh Castic Show Month ago

    No it's not there is a spider verse and MCU which the New Spider Man might be in worlds. You didn't understand what there saying because they never said the the Sony productions are MCU. what they said was the world that marvel and Sony are making is where the Venom, Black and Silver, and Sinister Six are going to take place in different area so it would make sense if it was the MCU because the MCU was made by Marvel without Sony so there talking about a Spider Man Verse where if contract work out the New Spider Man will be in both. Another evidence supports this and that the fact that MCU is not going to reference any of the characters from the Sony productions and the Sony productions won't reference any character from the MCU. Kevin even said it himself that none of those Sony productions will be part of the MCU in a different interview.

    OMFG - DO NOT believe Sony's lies. Come on guys, you are smarter than this. Sony think's we are stupid enough to fool for this BS. Note how she says its connected but doesn't say its part of the MCU, and look at how Kevin Feige reacts. This is a BS PR Stunt to attempt to cash in on the success of the MCU. These spin off films have NOTHING to do with the MCU! If u like Spiderman in the MCU boycott these spin off films otherwise Sony will be end up removing Spiderman from the MCU as well!

    Kevin Feige has stated multiple times neither Venom nor Silver and Black or any of these Sony spin off films are in any way connected with the MCU and who am I going to believe, the guy who is in charge of the MCU, or Amy Pascal, someone who is known to be full of sh*t!

  • jesse atkins
    jesse atkins Month ago

    I finally watched the interview and I dont see any hint of a deal. Pascal is simply saying Venom is part of Spiderman's universe, tom Holland might appear, but nothing in regards to a new deal after "Homecoming2". You do realize that there's more of a chance that there is no renewed deal, right? It doesn't make any sense for Sony to extend the deal. If you saw peoples reaction to Spiderman in Civil War (where he practically did nothing) then you know that the fan will love Homecoming 1 & 2, Sony won't be losing the actors without marvel so they will still have the same bait as they did with marvel. Spiderman is still Sony's property.

  • Phillip Michael

    Hey John! Yeah I think having Venom in the MCU makes the most sense. I think Infinity War will be a great opportunity for Spider-Man to be introduced to the symbiote suit, especially if he's going into space with the Avengers. Then have him as a supporting character in Venom. What do you think?

Might still just be a case of yea they are in the same universe, just like the netflix heros are but that doesnt mean they'll ever show up on the mcu movies or vice versa...

    I feel more comfortable with the Black Cat, Silver Sable, and Venom being in the Marvel Cinematic Universe than some in some other world universe separate from the MCU.
    I agree John this is a smart move to do it this way.
    I also think Marvel, and Sony already have extended the deal because of maybe positive reactions of Spiderman in "Captain America Civil War", and feed back from "Spiderman Homecoming".

    'Curious to see what Sony can do with a series of films not connected to a larger universe?' Seriously? Get out your Blu Ray man. You may notice that they've been doing that since 2002 with 5 Spiderman movies, most of which sucked. They had their chance, but after Spiderman 2 it's been terrible. The MCU needs to manage the IP now.

  • jesse atkins

    I'm completely apathetic to the marvel movies now, but I speculate the same thing as you, john, I think a new deal was made after Sony hinted at leaving the MCU (which they did. Pascals comments) then stated that Venom would be separate from MCU (not spiderman, she never said separate from spiderman). If I'm right, then it doesn't make any sense to me, I think Sony could have carried the torch themselves after "homecoming 2", but maybe Feige had a great idea for the Spidey-verse moving forward, maybe Sony will be getting a sweeter deal, who knows. I liked Andrew Garfield as peter parker. ASM2 wasn't great, but it wasn't the worst, certainly was better than Spiderman 3 so Holland will have to win me over, but, man, hate to say it but I'm SO TIRED of Tony Stark... I have Stark-fatigue...

    I think using Venom is stupid unless you build up the Eddie Brock character and his motives for hating Parker, it will only be successful if you throw in Mary Jane and give Spider-Man the emotional arch on why he needs to stop him. They could even use Stark instead of Richards helping him come up with the sound gun. It's gotta be done right though, don't shoe horn Venom in.

    I feel that all this news about whether Venom is in the MCU movies or not is a moot point - they will probably never mention Venom in the Marvel films - he'll just
    appear in the "sub-universe" of the Spider-Man films, that's it.

    In our "head-canon" however, we can of course assume that if Venom exists alongside Spider-Man himself, then by extension Venom "MUST" exist in the MCU. The connection may be only as tenuous as that.

  • Martin Elizalde Lecuona

    Mmm... I don't know... I was excited by the notion that whatever Sony was doing could be a parallel universe that would eventually collide with the MCU if the movies were well received. That for me was the smartest move, allowing flexibility without compromising what Marvel has built. What Amy Pascal is saying has the potential to blow up in their faces, I feel like it is an unnecessary risk from a studio-business perspective

  • Frevoli
    Frevoli Month ago

    I think it does confirm that the Marvel/Sony deal will continue.
    Though as for the whole smokescreen behind whether the extra stuff would be set in the mcu.. there could be a few reasons for that.
    1) Sony was using them as a bargaining chip. Like "Look, if this deal doesn't continue, we do have these other properties we can move forward with." And maybe them existing in the mcu was also something they were hoping to get.
    2) Given that Sony's plans with Venom are R rated, maybe Marvel weren't sure if they wanted him to exist in the MCU and to go full R. But have now decided to do it.
    3) They will be in the MCU, but they will also be their own thing. Like the Spiderverse films will stay in New York and not effect other MCU films outside of Spiderman.
    4) Amy Pascal is just making this us, and will later retract it.

    I haven't seen this Feige reaction people are referring to, but I can only imagine any apprehension he may have had comes from not wanting to tell everyone so soon. I wasn't on board with Sony's Venom-verse until they announced Hardy as Brock. Now that it's MCU canon, I'm still interested but a little worried about creative freedom. Definitley not "bad" news at the very least.

    I haven't even seen Spiderman: Homecoming yet so I can't say for sure if this is something that I want or not. The quality of the films matters more to me than what universe it connects with.
