Venom Will Have No Ties To The Marvel Cinematic Universe
With Homecoming set for release soon, many are undoubtedly interested to see how the film and the inevitable sequels will tie into the MCU. After all, the movie will be the first Spider-Man film to be set in the world Marvel has created, something that fans have been anticipating for a long time.
Watts, however, made clear that Sony Pictures is not completely prepared to surrender the property back to Marvel. He confessed that he doesn’t know what the studio has planned for the Venom spin-off, but the one thing he was sure about was that it doesn’t take place in the MCU, describing this decision as “really intriguing” and wondering what Sony could possibly have in store for the project.
Per CBR.com, the source of this story:
In the comics, Venom is an intelligent alien symbiote that requires some kind living host in order to thrive and survive. Introduced in the original “Secret Wars” #8 as a black, organic costume for the friendly neighborhood wall-crawler, Peter Parker eventually learned his alien outfit had developed an unhealthy, quasi-romantic attachment to him. Parker was eventually able to sever that connection, leaving the symbiote spurned and alone on Earth.
