Ever since Sony announced that Ruben Fleischer would be directing Tom Hardy for the Venom movie, there has been a whirlwind go conflicting statements and information about the Spider-Man spinoffs supposed connection to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Now Kevin Feige has attempted to clear up all of the rumors and reports that have been swirling around in an interview with JoBlo. After former Sony boss and Spider-Man: Homecoming producer Amy Pascal said that Tom Holland could appear as the Wallcrawler in their movies, Keige seemed slightly taken aback.

“Right now, Spidey is in the MCU and it’s just Spidey,” Feige said to JoBlo. “Civil War, Homecoming, we’ve already shot a lot of Tom Holland’s scenes in the upcoming Avengers films, and we’re just starting to solidify our plans for Homecoming 2 — we won’t call it that, whatever it is — which is exciting because it’ll be the first MCU movie after untitled Avengers in 2019. It’ll be the way Civil War informed everything in Homecoming, those movies will launch him off into a very new cinematic universe at that point. Those five movies are [what] we’re focusing on.”

Besides confirming Marvel Studios next movie to followup to Avengers 4, Feige also seems to be nixing any plans for Venom to appear in any MCU movies.

Now, keep in mind…

Venom, Silver & Black Take Place in Spider-Man: Homecoming Universe

There is still a chance that Tom Holland's Spider-Man could show up in Venom or Silver & Black.

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…
