And the Final Verdict is in for Venom’s Fate in the Marvel Cinematic Universe
There have been a lot of “will they, won’t they” talks happening about Venom’s fate in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We’ve seen straight up denials, and fully lit greenlights – but the reports have been nothing if not conflicting. Head of Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures, Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal, sat down in an interview with CB to set the record straight once and for all. Brace yourselves, Venom fans – the news isn’t good.
The final verdict is … it’s just not happening.
After Tom Hardy was cast as Venom in a solo film with Sony, the questions of his place among the empire of the MCU became more prevalent than ever. There were official confirmations and flat out “no’s” – so the pair wanted to put the final word in so the confusion could finally dissipate. Here’s the good (bad?) word:
Here’s what we’re doing: all these characters are a part of the Marvel comic book universe,” Pascal said. “In that universe, they are all related to each other. Kevin [Feige] makes characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. These characters are separate, except for Spidey, who belongs in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which is why he’s there.”
But wait, there’s more …
Feige was then asked if the above statement meant that a Vemon x Spider-Man crossover would remain dead in the water for ever, to which (of course) they cheekily replied, “We never say never.”
The Marvel universe is huge, so there is no telling what could come in the future for movie goers. With the rise of comic-to-movie popularity, it is not entirely implausible to see a DC x Marvel crossover either, after all – it worked out well for comic lovers.
