Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal have confirmed that Venom will take place in the MCU.
At the press junket for Spider-Man: Homecoming, Amy Pascal confirmed that the solo Venom movie produed by Sony would take place with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man universe. The interviewer went on to ask if Tom Holland would ever appear in the movies, and Pascal said “Anything is possible.”
The interesting thing about this statement is that it completely contradicts everything we’ve been told so far. The studio had previously said that the Venom and Silver Sable, Black Cat team up movies would take place in their own universe. Now, this seems to have changed. Keep in mind that Marvel Studios has nothing to do with the Venom movie, it will be entirely Sony produced.
I really like this news. I believe the more separate universes under the same company, the more convoluted it gets. I want Venom so be in the main Spider-Man universe, not in his own place with Silver Sable and Black Cat. I think that you can do a Venom movie on its own, but I would rather have him in Spider-Man’s world. I really hope we see Venom crossover with Spider-Mb eventually, and we can finally see a good version of Venom on the big screen.
Tom Hardy was announced to play Eddie Brock in the movie, so the movie seems like it’s on the right path if they can get someone like him to look at the script and choose to jump on. Also, the movie is supposed to be R rated, and that will be the first MCU movie to have an R rating. Ultimately, this news is satisfying to hear, now that I know that I might get to see Venom and Spider-Man in the same movie again.
