Venom: Let There Be Carnage is finally coming, though without Spider-Man. Apparently, that won’t be an issue though. The Sony President, Sanford Panitch, says you won’t even miss Spider-Man when you see Venom 2! Those are some mighty big words.
Even if that’s true, it won’t stop fans from wondering how these films relate to the MCU. There’s a huge question mark on whether or not we’ll ever see Spider-Man go toe-to-toe with Venom. We certainly hope so.
“We don’t really think of our 900 characters as the Spidey-verse,” Panitch tells Variety in a new interiew. “We have a Marvel universe. The volume of characters we have — you know, wait until you see this next ‘Venom.’ You don’t miss Spider-Man.” The outlet claims he paused after this and added: “It’ll be exciting if they do meet, right?” That playful coyness doesn’t quite sell the idea that connectivity is even in the cards though, despite Panitch’s insistence in the same talk that there’s a plan with what they’re doing. Though he does claim Spider-Man: No Way Home may make it a little more obvious.
“There actually is a plan,” Panitch added. “I think now maybe it’s getting a little more clear for people where we’re headed and I think when ‘No Way Home’ comes out, even more, will be revealed.”
So, it sounds like maybe the newest Spider-Man film might tie in some way to the Sony Spider-Man spin-off films! That would be awesome news for those hoping that these two worlds will collide sooner rather than later.
This new Spider-Man film is set to deal with the Multiverse in some way. Rumors have been rampant that we’ll see more than one Spider-Man over the course of the film. That would, frankly, be nuts.
So, yeah, you won’t even miss Spider-Man according to the Sony President.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage will premiere on September 24.
