Venom to Supposedly Be Part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe
Despite previous reports saying that there aren’t any plans to include Venom into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Sony Pictures’ Amy Pascal has now just revealed that the character will definitely co-exist in Marvel’s shared universe with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man.
It appears that both Marvel and Sony have come to terms with bringing both universes together with the upcoming R-rated version on Venom. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige said before that the villain’s first solo film won’t actually be connected with the MCU, but Sony producer Amy Pascal can see the two universes crossing over one another. During an interview, Pascal stated that Venom does exist in the same universe as Spider-Man: Homecoming and the rest of the MCU.
Let’s think about this. Feige never really did say that Venom won’t be a part of the MCU, he just simply said that the studio doesn’t have any plans for the character at this time. However, Feige did seem shocked about what Pascal was saying in the video. Starring Tom Hardy as the brooding anti-hero, it will be interesting to see these two interace on screen soon. What do you guys think of this? Can both characters co-exist in the MCU with the new film coming up? Maybe the other films in development for the Spidey-Verse can follow suit some day. Leave us your thoughts and share your opinion on this.
Directed by Ruben Fleischer, the film is expected to release sometime in 2018.
