Sony’s SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Producer Says Spider-Man and Venom Will Exist in the Same Universe

It seems like Marvel and Sony need to get on the same page about Spider-Man’s place in the MCU and his connection to Venom, Black Cat, and Silver Sable.

Last week, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed that there were no plans to include Venom in the MCU. He clarified that it was a Sony project.

Carnage Confirmed to Appear in Tom Hardy’s VENOM and Kraven and Mysterio Will Get Standalone Films

Some interesting new information regarding the Spider-Man cinematic universe that Sony Pictures is developing. As you’ve probably already heard by now, Spider-Man: Homecoming producer Amy Pascal said that Tom Holland‘s version of Spider-Man will exist in that cinematic universe that will launch with Venom. That will be followed by a Black Cat and Silver Sable movie.

It was confirmed in a recent report from THR that “Holland is only contractually obligated to Spider-Man 2 and 3, but the intention is to bring him into the spinoffs and possibly other Marvel films.” So we will eventually see Spider-Man in this separate universe that Sony is developing.

VENOM Film Will Reportedly Feature Ann Weying a.k.a. She-Venom and New Details on Venom’s Suit

about. Ann Weying. I had no idea who that was. I mean, sure, I do now, but it’s rare to be introduced to a character from comics that I haven’t heard of that might be featured in a Marvel film. But here we are, and she’s a big one.

Ann Weying is a successful lawyer and Eddie Brock’s ex-wife in the comics. She was shot by some dude and later became She-Venom. Classy title. While there isn’t any news that the character will turn into She-Venom in the film, it has recently revealed by The Hashtag Show that Sony is looking for actresses ages 25 to 32 to play the role in the upcoming Venom film.

Scarlett Johansson Reveals The Crazy Number of Characters That are in AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR

We figured Avengers: Infinity War was gonna have a lot of characters in it. After all, it’s Marvel’s penultimate film for what is the Marvel Universe’s Avengers smackdown. But I don’t think anyone had thought that it would have more than 50 characters let alone 60.

In a recent late night show visit with Stephen Colbert, Scarlett Johansson revealed that the amount of Marvel characters in the film would be around 61 or 62. When pressed if that is just in one scene, she clarified that there is about 32 in one specific scene. 61? 32? What sort of madman makes a film like that!?

Now, just how she defines a Marvel character could be interesting. Maybe there’s an extra in the film who plays a specific Marvel character that none of us know about. Off the top of my head, I can only even think of like 30 characters who have even been officially announced to be IN Avengers: Infinity War, let alone 60.

Granted, maybe she was just exaggerating in her interview, but then again 61 or 62 seems like a rather specific number to pull out of the air. She could have just said around 50 or something, but she said 61 or 62. This movie looks like it’s going to be CRAZY packed with Marvel characters. I’m excited to see it just for the fact that this many big stars are in one movie that isn’t revolving around a holiday. In fact, it almost seems like there might be… Too many Cooks…..

Spider-Men II: Double Your Pleasure

Peter Parker and Miles Morales reunite for a milestone story!

In 2012, writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Sara Pichelli gave us the legendary team-up of Peter Parker and Miles Morales with SPIDER-MEN. Through the dimensional tampering of Mysterio, Peter ended up in the “Ultimate” universe and came face-to-face with his own death as well as a brand-new and younger hero with the mantle of Spider-Man. Five years, one Secret Wars and a Civil War II later, and the two now live together in the Marvel Universe, but one massive question still remains: Who is the Miles Morales of Earth-616? The first five-issue event left that particular juicy nugget of information on a cliffhanger that has yet to be resolved…until now.

The highly-anticipated follow-up to SPIDER-MEN arrives this summer from the reunited team of Bendis and Pichelli along with colorist Justin Ponsor. Luckily, you won’t have to wait until the first issue of SPIDER-MEN II drops in July for some answers. We spoke with Brian about the long-awaited sequel, the iconic web-slinging legacy of Spider-Man, and the question he’s been asked the most on social media for half a decade.

R-Rated Venom

So a new movie starring Spider-Man villain The Venom has been officially announced, and Sony has assured us that it’s going to be rated R. And I, for one, am delighted. I’ve been a fan of Marvel Comics’ The Venom character since I was a little German boy clipping grass for nickels to buy comic books, and there’s one thing that has consistently frustrated me with every adaptation of the black-suited villain.

Here’s Why ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Is Nothing Like Those Other ‘Spider-Man’ Movies

July 7is a historic day in the world of superhero movies because it is the day Spider-Man: Homecoming arrives in theaters. Why so historic? Well, this new, rebooted version of Spider-Man is the first to be produced by Marvel Studios (The Avengers, Iron Man, Captain America) in conjunction with two other studios. As producer Amy Pascal put it, “I don’t think it will ever happen again in the history of the movie business: you have three studios that came together to have this movie being made. And no studio likes to share anything with anyone, let alone three studios.”

Most disturbing moments in Marvel comics

Comic books aren’t known for shying away from strange subject matter. But even among brain-meltingly convoluted story lines and utterly bizarre characters, Marvel somehow managed to whip up a few moments that went further than we’d ever imagined possible. These things are meant for kids, after all. Here’s a look at the most disturbing moments in Marvel comics. Some of these events caused major controversies while others flew below the radar, but all of them haunted us after we put them down. Continue reading
