Sony Has Another Name For Its Spider-Man Universe Films

Thanks to the two studios' mutual appreciation of just how valuable a main character Spider-Man is, Sony's reportedly amenable to the idea of finding more walk-on roles for MCU characters in future Spider-Man films - much like Spidey himself stowed away with Tony Stark in Avengers: Infinity War. Universal tried to launch their Dark Universe banner and now Sony is looking to launch their own universe with Spider-Man characters. According to Variety, Sony is throwing a nickname around for its cinematic universe called Sony's Universe of Marvel Characters, or SUMC.

Venom will be released in theaters on October 5, 2018.

Sony's upcoming Venom film may be eyeing a PG-13 rating instead of the previously rumored R, but Tom Hardy's symbiote-bonded Eddie Brock certainly isn't pulling any punches in this terrifying new image.

The movie follows Eddie as he learns to cope with his new powers, all while investigating the mysterious Life Foundation led by Riz Ahmed's Carlton Drake.


Plans have already been announced to make a film based on Morbius, a vampire villain from the Spider-Man comics starring Jared Leto, as well as recruiting Richard Wenk (The Equalizer 2) to write a film based on Kraven the Hunter.

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. It's noted the Silver Sable movie and the Black Bat film will have female directors, and that Sony is eager to work with Prince-Bythewood on other projects.

"We believe Black Cat is enough of her own character with a great backstory and a canon of material to draw from to justify her own film", said Sanford Panitch, president of Columbia Pictures. "We feel there's no reason the Marvel characters shouldn't be able to embrace diversity".
