Sony Exec Reveals There's a Plan to Connect Spider-Man to the Studio's Other Marvel Movies

As you probably know, Disney doesn’t own the rights to every Marvel character and Sony is the rights-holder for Spider-Man and a slew of other characters.

While Spider-Man is currently part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe thanks to an agreement between the two studios, Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group President Sanford Panitch says that there is a plan to connect the two universes.

Panitch says that the studio doesn’t consider their characters to be part of a “Spidey-verse.”

“We don’t really think of our 900 characters as the Spidey-verse,” he told Variety. “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.”

He added, “It’ll be exciting if they do meet, right?”

The first movie in the Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters was the box office smash Venom in 2018. The sequel, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, will be released on September 24. Future movies include Morbius in 2022 and Kraven the Hunter in 2023.

It’s unclear what Tom Holland‘s future with Spider-Man will be following the release of Spider-Men: No Way Home in December. But, Panitch talked about the plans to connect the character to Sony’s universe.

“There actually is a plan,” he said. “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.”

Panitch was vague when asked about Spider-Man’s future in the MCU.

“The great thing is we have this very excellent relationship with Kevin [Feige],” he said. “There’s an incredible sandbox there to play with. We want those MCU movies to be absolutely huge, because that’s great for us and our Marvel characters, and I think that’s the same thing on their side. But we have a great relationship. There’s lots of opportunities, I think, that are going to happen.”

Spider-Man: No Way Home wrapped filming in March and some interesting info was released.
