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…

The first major motion picture in Marvel Studios’ collaboration with Sony Pictures is set to debut in theaters in just a couple of weeks. With Spider-Man: Homecoming ready to swing onto silver screens, Marvel honcho Kevin Feige is already planning for the future of the franchise.

Thor: Ragnarok is getting the finishing touches ahead of its premiere in November, with Black Panther to follow in February, and then the highly anticipated Avengers: Infinity War will hit in May, 2018. Marvel is promising that will be the first in a two-part Avengers saga, with the next movie set to debut in 2019.

It might be more than two years down the line, but the Marvel Studios president is already planning the company’s first movie after Avengers 4, and it’s going to promise more wall-crawling action.

In an interview with JoBlo, Feige stated that Marvel is “just starting to solidify our plans for [Spider-Man] 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.”

We always knew Homecoming was going to get a sequel as a part of Marvel’s deal with Sony, including the intention to produce a trilogy. But to know that the second film is already in the planning stages with a firm plan for a release date is pretty exciting.


Here’s How Kevin Feige Convinced Sony To Lend Spider-Man

When Marvel Studios began on its own cinematic universe with Iron Man, fans never imagined how big the franchise would become. The MCU will turn ten next year and push out another slew of blockbusters which make box office bank. Last year, the series celebrated its biggest achievement yet when the MCU welcomed Spider-Man into its fold despite the character’s complicated licensing history. The deal Marvel made with Sony to secure the character was a landmark one, and Kevin Feige has no revealed how he made it all happen.

Recently, The Hollywood Reporter did an in-depth piece which explores how Marvel and Sony came together. The president of Marvel Studios spoke with the site about his bit in the deal, and Feige said he had a rather straightforward pitch for Sony about the partnership.

“It really came down to me telling Amy (Pascal) in her office that I think the best thing for this character is: Sony has the rights, that’s not changing. Have Sony pay for the movie, distribute the movie, market the movie. Just let us make the movie and incorporate him into our universe.”

Obviously, Feige’s plan worked. Sony did move forward with Marvel Studios to lend Spider-Man. The character made his MCU debut in Captain America: Civil War, and Tom Holland brought the web-swinging hero to life. Both critics and fans praised the character’s appearance, and Spider-Man will soon have the chance to further his MCU presence with his…

Tom Holland Recalls His Awkward First Encounter With Robert Downey Jr.

With Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures working together for the latest cinematic portrayal of Spider-Man, they made a major change to the character that filmgoers have yet to truly see.

Though Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield portrayed Peter Parker in high school in their respective series, the actors were both older; Garfield was 29 and Maguire was 26 when their first films were released.

But Spider-Man: Homecoming features newcomer Tom Holland in the role, who is still older than a typical high schooler at age 21 (Parker is a sophomore in the new film) but is younger than actors typically portraying the character. That youthful exuberance extends to the character’s presence in the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe as Spider-Man interacts with fellow superheroes for the first time in his cinematic career.

That mentality apparently goes beyond the silver screen, as evidenced by Holland’s story about his first embarrassing interaction with Robert Downey Jr., who portrays his onscreen mentor Tony Stark in the new film.

“I got very nervous about meeting Robert Downey Jr. as I have been a fan of his my entire life,” Holland said on the Graham Norton Show.

“When I met him I was thinking,…

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…
