Does Tom Hardy’s Venom Finally Face Off against Tom Holland’s Spider-Man?
Sony has revealed the release of two new Marvel films in 2023, although no information has been given on those plans. Both untitled films are said to take place in Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters, a cinematic universe starring heroes and villains associated with Spider-Man.
Kick-off with 2018 Venom, the SPUMC should gain momentum in the years to come, with a Morbius movie starring Jared leto scheduled for Jan. 28, 2022. Morbius isn’t the only Spider-Man villain featured in the film, as Michael keaton is teased to return as The Vulture, a role he played in the MCU Spider-Man: Homecoming.
On top of that, with Venom: let there be carnage break down the barrier between the SPUMC and the MCU and Tom hardy‘s Venom has reportedly made an appearance in Morbius, Sony is investing a lot of money and energy into the idea of a shared universe. There is also a Kraven the hunter film in development and set for release on January 13, 2023, increasing the number of Spider-Man villains in theaters.
It would be a safe bet that the two untitled Marvel projects made in partnership with Sony would also feature the villains of Spider-Man. However, Sony may be considering something much more ambitious. Spider-Man: No Path Home hits theaters on December 17, 2021 and features Alfred MolinaDoctor Octopus and Jamie foxx‘s Electro, as well as what looks like other villains who also came from previous Web Crawler interactions. Consider that Tom holland say that No way home looks like the final chapter in a franchise, there’s a chance Spider-Man is ready to move from the MCU to the SPUMC. Would it be possible, then ? Will we finally have a Sinister Six film in 2023? We can hope!
Of course, the two untitled Marvel movies could be projects already announced as SJ Clarkson’s female directed film starring Madame Webb or the Jackpot film written by Marc Guggenheim. However, with Venom: let there be carnage winning big at the box office, it’s possible we’ll see Tom Hardy return soon, maybe Venom and Holland’s Spider-Man are finally in a fight? And if five more villains unite to take down the Friendly Quarter, we’d all be ecstatic.
The two new untitled Marvel / Sony films will be released on June 23 and October 6, 2023.
