Wait, “Venom” Will Tie To “Spider-Man”?

At last report, the collaboration between Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios to share “Spider-Man” only extended to two new “Spider-Man” solo films at Sony plus several MCU efforts including “Captain America: Civil War” and the two next “Avengers” films.

This past month things grew a bit confusing. Firstly, actor Tom Holland suggested that the planned two Sony “Spider-Man” films was actually three. Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige also shot down talk of the two spin-offs in the works – “Venom” and “Black & Silver” – confirming the other week neither film will be a part of the MCU.

Now though, former Sony chief and the film’s producer Amy Pascal has shot that down slightly. In a new interview, Pascal opened up a bit about the spin-off films:

“Spider-Man characters aren’t connected to the MCU [but it] doesn’t mean Tom Holland can’t pop up in them as the friendly neighborhood wallcrawler. Both movies will all take place in the world that we’re now creating for Peter Parker. I mean, they’ll be adjuncts to it, there may be different locations, but it will still all be in the same world and they will be connected to each other.”

So will we see Tom Holland in the films? “There’s a chance… there’s always a chance.” The “Venom” film is rumored to begin filming this September in Atlanta and New York.

“Spider-Man: Homecoming” is currently tracking between $90-108 million for an opening domestic weekend. A six-minute track from the film’s score has also been released on VEVO.
