After Spider-man Far Form Home it’ll be clear how the Sony villains fit in the MCU

June 1st, 2021 by Marc Comments

While we have known for some time now that the MCU and Sony’s Marvel universe were connected (here), it seems that after Spider-man: No Way Home later this year, there’ll be no doubt in anyone’s mind.

We know that Sony’s Spider-man universe already features Venom and will soon also have Morbius, Carnage and Kraven but it’s still minus a Spider-man… for now.

Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group President Sanford Panitch said of his villain-driven universe that it’s part of a bigger plan: “We don’t really think of our 900 characters as the Spidey-verse. 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.”

However, it seems that Spider-man – Tom Holland, most likely – is set to finally fit into the Sony/Marvel universe and we’ll see how before the end of this year: “There actually is a plan,” Panitch says.

“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.”

We all know that between Spider-man: Far From Home and Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness will see the MCU dip its toes into the whole, well, multiverse idea with several villains from past Spider-man franchises returning (and more looking likely) with it seeming that perhaps we’ll see several realities clashing and old foes becoming part of the MCU… could this be how Spider-man joins the Sony movies? Well, possibly, but considering that we already saw Sony’s Morbius meeting the MCU’s Vulture in the Morbius trailer as well as an acknowledgment of Spider-man being part of that world (here), it seems there’s something more going on here.

Personally, I think they already exist in the MCU…  Spider-man just hasn’t met them yet.

As for the rumored Sinister Six set-up in Far From Home, on mention of the team of supervillains finally appearing on screen, Panitch said: “It would be very cool, wouldn’t it?” concluded Panitch.

Yes. Yes, it would.

Spider-man No Way Home is set for release on December 17th, 2021.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
