The Sony area of the Marvel Cinematic World is a shady area, not quite MCU-proper but yet not completely cut off from the rest of the universe.
Against all odds, and defying every studio’s insatiable appetite interest in expanding their shared universes once they’re as well big to understand, “Venom” appeared to take place in a world bereft of Spider-Men, whilst also “Morbius” oddly did appear to use both “Homecoming’s” Vulture and the Spider-Man match from the Sam Raimi trilogy.
Nothing makes logic, even by the rules of a world where radioactive insect bites make a man’s fingers particularly sticky.
But, according to Sanford Panitch, head of Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group, it’s just a matter of time until their complicated network comes full circle? What are the functions of webs? Before everything comes together.
They have a website. Or something like that. During a recent interview with Variety, Panitch said of the Sony library of characters, “We don’t really conceive of our 900 characters as the Spidey-verse.” “There’s a Marvel universe here. The number of characters we have — you should watch the upcoming ‘Venom.’ You won’t miss Spider-Man.”
Sony Marvel Movies Into Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Sanford Panitch goes on to brazenly tease the multiverse parts of “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” in the excellent tradition of practically everyone working on the upcoming sequel “Spider-Man: No Way Home.”
The Spidey threequel has been dogged by allegations of multiverse antics for as long as anybody can remember – that is, since around early 2020. When Mysterio falsely claimed to have gone from another realm in “Spider-Man: Far from Home,” the reality-spanning sci-fi notion was referred to.
More indications were dropped during the film’s post-credits scene, which featured a very J.K. Simmons-looking J. Jonah Jameson, and again when Alfred Molina informed reporters that he was resuming his role as Doctor Octopus for the first time since 2004’s “Spider-Man 2.”
Even though the multiverse is a high-concept notion, moviegoers have already seen it work wonders as a storey element in “Into the Spider-Verse.” Furthermore, we may presume that Marvel is doubling down on making this the next big thing in the MCU, based on the title “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.”
Above all, it’s vital to remember that allowing Sony’s Marvel characters into the MCU proper would finally allow us to watch the Avengers as a whole battle Woody Harrelson. All of our deepest desires are going to be realised.
