Sony Executive Says ‘There Is a Plan’ for Connecting Their Marvel Universe to the MCU
In an interview with Variety, Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group President, Sanford Panitch, discussed the companies plans to integrate its Spider-Man universe into the MCU. The next films in Sony’s line-up include Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Morbius, and Kraven.
Panitch described the relationship between the two studios and how their storylines will interconnect. He mentioned how Sony only acted as a producer for the recent Tom Holland Spider-Man films. However, he alludes to a joined universe being revealed in the future:
“There is a plan,” he says. “I think now maybe it’s getting more clear for people where we’re headed and I think when ‘No Way Home’ comes out, even more will be revealed.”
Despite these plans, Panitch does not consider Sony’s “900 characters as the Spidey-verse” but, rather as their own “Marvel Universe.” He even goes as far as saying that fans won’t even “miss Spider-Man” when they watch the upcoming Venom sequel. Although, he does entertain the possibility of Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock interacting with Holland’s Peter Parker on screen.
