In the coming years, we’ll be seeing Sony and Marvel Spider-Man movies in a different spin. Earlier this week, we just saw Marvel Studios’ president Kevin Feige teased that a Venom/Spider-Man crossover film would likely happen in the near future.
Fans were excited and thinking about the crossover as Sony’s Venom was last year hit.
Amy Pascal Spoke about Spider-Man
The producer of Spider-Man: Homecoming and the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home, Amy Pascal spoke with Screen Rant about the spin-offs while on a press tour for latter’s release.
She was asked about Sony’s character merging in MCU. She responded,
“The most important thing is that each of these movies can stand on their own. So I think the first thing for us to think about is: Venom has to stand on its own, Far From Home has to stand on its own, Spider-Verse has to stand on its own. They all have to be great movies themselves. And then the possibilities are endless…”
Pascal addressed the possibilities for future Sony Spider-Man films, saying,
“That’s the thing about the Spidey universe. There are so many characters; we haven’t even scratched the surface of it. I’m always getting calls from Dan Slott saying, “But you haven’t done this one yet! You haven’t done that one yet!”
Pascal attempted to clear things up, but she may have made the situation even more confusing.
While it’s evident that Sony wants their Spider-Man spinoffs to succeed on their own merit, she doesn’t rule out that they could crossover into the MCU somewhere down the line.
At this point in time, Marvel fans shouldn’t be too concerned about seeing Jared Leto’s Morbius or a currently-uncast Black Cat interact with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man anytime soon though.
Pascals clears that currently, Sony is eying on their upcoming stand-alone movies.
Sony on the way for Venom 2
Sony hasn’t had the greatest track record when it comes to developing solo Spider-Man movies and spinoffs in the past, so it’s promising to see that they’re trying to put the properties themselves first instead of immediately chasing after the quickest buck.
Pascal’s comments seem to imply that they have much larger plans once Venom 2, Morbius, and their other future films get off the ground.
While Venom wasn’t the critical hit that fans have come to expect from Marvel Studios, still it managed to break big box office records and took the internet by storm.
Sony already made the movie PG-13, so that it could pave the way for Marvel and also recently Kevin Feige too seemed to be optimistic for the crossover.
Of course, this is all up to Sony, but with next month’s Far From Home introducing Holland’s Spider-Man to the multiverse, the possibilities for interconnecting the two cinematic universes truly does feel. Spider-Man: Far From Home will hit theaters on July 2.
