Don’t think we saw this one coming. Or maybe we should have. Either way, this is a pretty massive development. Amy Pascal, who is heading up the Spider-Man movie projects over at Sony, just dropped a pretty big bombshell on all of us. Even though every prior report indicated that the upcoming Venom solo movie and the in-the-works Silver and Black movie, centering on Silver Sable and Black Cat, will not be at all related to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It turns out that isn’t true. Right from the mouth of the one in charge, we now know that Venom and Spider-Man: Homecoming do take place in the same universe. Which means they’re also part of the MCU? Well, not so quick…
Tom Holland Updates recently posted a brief interview clip to their Twitter account featuring Amy Pascal and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. During the interview, Amy Pascal was asked if the Venom movie, as well as the Black Cat and Silver Sable movie, will take place in their own universe or if they will somehow connect to what is currently being done with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man. Here’s what she had to say about it.
“It will all take place in the world we are now creating for Peter Parker. It’ll be adjunct to it, it may be different locations, but it will all still be in the same world and they will be connected to each other as well.”
When she says “they will be connected to each other as well,” she is referring to the Sony spin-off movies, just to be clear. She isn’t saying that Venom and Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 are going to cross paths. At least not yet. Given her somewhat surprising response to this question, the interviewer asked if we could see Tom Holland’s Spider-Man meeting up with Tom Hardy’s Venom in some sort of crossover situation…
