Sony's Marvel Cinematic Universe Has an Official Name

Tom Holland's Spider-Man may live firmly in the MCU, but that hasn't stopped Sony's dreams of creating a Marvel Universe of their own.

Whatever their reasoning for making Venom more family friendly, Sony is still going ahead on the rest of the SUMC with Sanford Panitch, president of Sony subsidiary Columbia Pictures, corralling it all.

Hopefully that title is just kept for internal use within the studio, because it's definitely not the strongest branding approach for mainstream appeal. Part of the reason is that the studios joined forces on Spider-Man: "Homecoming, with Marvel coming on board as a producer", Variety notes.

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the creative minds behind "The Lego Movie" and "21 Jump Street", bring their unique talents to a fresh vision of a different Spider-Man Universe, with a groundbreaking visual style that's the first of its kind. Adding a larger Marvel Universe spin to it raises the profile of the franchise significantly - as well as the inevitable confusion amongst casual moviegoers, who won't get all the particulars of why certain characters can't crossover, etc. However, it has been reported that one of the films-Silver and Black-is no longer happening. Characters like Silk, Jackpot, and Nightwatch are also being considered for features. Before Jake Gyllenhaal had been tapped as Mysterio for Spider-Man: Far From Home, I had been rooting like insane for Kraven to be the next Spider-Man movie villain.

Tethered with a PG-13 rating and more expectations than we can count, Venom officially slithers into theaters on October 5th, when Ruben Fleischer and Co. will light the fuse on Sony's Universe of Marvel Characters.

They believe Black Cat can stand on her own and will feature in her own film. That can't happen unless Sony's rather iffy plans actually come to fruition - a feat that seems to be depending heavily on the success of Venom.

With the the highly anticipated comic book film, Venom, set to release fairly soon, Sony is gearing up for their own Sony's Marvel Universe.
