Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige almost broke the Web final week when he teased Venom/Spider-Man crossover movie would possible occur within the close to future. Each followers and critics of final yr’s hit Sony film had been making an attempt to make sense of the concept, although. Does Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock already reside within the MCU? Would Tom Holland’s wall-crawler pop right into a Venom sequel? Would Sony even wish to herald Holland, or would they distinguish themselves with a brand new face within the position?
Whereas doing press interviews for Spider-Man: Far From Dwelling, producer Amy Pascal tried to clear issues up, however she could have made the state of affairs much more complicated. Whereas it’s evident that Sony desires their Spider-Man spinoffs to succeed on their very own advantage, she doesn’t rule out that they may crossover into the MCU someplace down the road.
At this cut-off date, Marvel followers shouldn’t be too involved about seeing Jared Leto’s Morbius or a currently-uncast Black Cat work together with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man anytime quickly although. Pascal says that in the intervening time, Sony is barely targeted on their upcoming particular person movies.
“An important factor is that every of those motion pictures can stand on their very own. So I feel the very first thing for us to consider is: Venom has to face by itself, Far From Dwelling has to face by itself, Spider-Verse has to face by itself. All of them need to be nice motion pictures themselves. After which the probabilities are limitless…
That’s the factor concerning the Spidey universe. There are such a lot of characters; we haven’t even scratched the floor of it. I’m all the time getting calls from Dan Slott saying, “However you haven’t completed this one but! You haven’t completed that one but!”

Sony hasn’t had the best monitor file in the case of growing solo Spider-Man motion pictures and spinoffs prior to now, so it’s promising to see that they’re making an attempt to place the properties themselves first as a substitute of instantly chasing after the quickest buck. Who is aware of what’s being mentioned behind the scenes on the two studios, however Pascal’s feedback appear to indicate that they’ve a lot bigger plans as soon as Venom 2, Morbius, and their different future movies get off the bottom.
Whereas Venom wasn’t the vital hit that followers have come to anticipate from Marvel Studios, the film made a critical dent on the field workplace, and its ridiculous tone took the Web by storm. Whereas at one level it appeared inconceivable for Tom Hardy and his alien symbiote to pop up within the MCU, Kevin Fiege now appears optimistic it might occur. After all, that is all as much as Sony, however with subsequent month’s Far From Dwelling introducing Holland’s Spider-Man to the multiverse, the probabilities for interconnecting the 2 cinematic universes really does really feel, as Pascal says, “limitless.”
