Sony’s official title for their Marvel movies is a beauty

May 2nd, 2020 by Marc Comments

Ok, so we have the MCU – the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We have the DCEU (although not officially named) – the DC Comics Extended Universe and now Sony has an official name for it’s Marvel comics movies and it’s a clinker.

We noticed on recent tweets (see below) that Sony was calling the universe – which includes Sony’s own movies that are now connected (albeit loosely) to the MCU (Venom, Morbeus, Venom: Let The Be Carnage and Kraven The Hunter) and indeed the MCU Spider-man movies and, presumably, Into the Spiderverse and its upcoming sequel (here) – the Spider-Man Universe of Characters.

That makes sense… although, given how they are all Spider-man related, I assumed it would be simply the Sony Spiderverse.

But no.

IGN has reached out to Sony to confirm if the Spider-Man Universe of Characters was the official name and it is not. Rather it is officially called… wait for it… the Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters.

So there you have it, welcome to the SPUMC, which sounds ruder than it should.

What do you all think? is it a winner? Let me know your thoughts, gang…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. 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….
