Sony's Marvel Cinematic Universe Has an Official Name

Sony's Marvel Cinematic Universe Has an Official Name

Our movie wants to honor the comics as close as we can tonally.

The first trailer for Venom gives the movie a dark, violent that had fans speculating the film would be Sony's first R-Rated Marvel movie, but according to a report from Variety, it is increasingly unlikely that will happen.

Sony teamed up with Marvel Studios to introduce Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Captain America: Civil War and then followed up his successful appearance in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the creative minds behind "The Lego Movie" and "21 Jump Street", bring their unique talents to a fresh vision of a different Spider-Man Universe, with a groundbreaking visual style that's the first of its kind.

That hasn't stopped the studio from moving ahead on their other Spidey spin-offs however, with news having come last week that a Kraven the Hunter film is now in the works, and that Cindy Moon's Silk - another pivotal Spidey character - will be joining the villain in a feature of her own.

Like a "turd in the wind", Venom is slowly but surely rolling towards us for it's October release.

But if the anti-hero Venom finds enough compelled moviegoers, there is one Spider-Man property that seems inevitably destined for Sony to try to exploit ... and no, we're not talking about Spider-Gwen ... or Ghost Spider... or whatever Marvel is calling her these days.

They believe Black Cat can stand on her own and will feature in her own film. They are extending that relationship with Spider-Man sequel, Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Tom Holland's Spider-Man may live firmly in the MCU, but that hasn't stopped Sony's dreams of creating a Marvel Universe of their own.

With the Silver & Black film getting scrapped it also means that writer and director Gina Prince-Blythewood could be leaving as well. Are you excited for what Sony has planned for their Sony's Universe of Marvel Characters? While Panitch is the one in charge of this entire enterprise, so to speak, Sony's approach to the actual films will be more "producer-driven", so you can expect lots of variety and deviation on each individual production.
