Sony’s Marvel Universe Updates: Silver and Black Splitting into Two & More

Prince Harry The Revenant Cast London Premiere

Variety reports that, despite early efforts to push Venom as an edgy, violent foil to the kid-friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, Sony's brain trust has begun to express concerns about that illustrious R-rating.

If theVenom movie lives up to expectations, and presently it is tracking well, the movie will quickly be followed by sequels and standalone films featuring heroes and villains from the Spider-Man universe, of which Sony has the rights to of roughly 900 of the Marvel characters. But Marvel Studios still doesn't have all of its characters in one box, as Sony Pictures maintains the license for all things Spider-Man-related. The day they wrapped, he told the magazine, he was on a transatlantic flight to see his 33-year-old pal tie the knot.

The PG-13 rating also makes some sense given how popular Venom is with children. If Venom is kept at PG-13, the studio believes there will be greater leeway in having characters cross over within the films.

Whether that's likely to happen is unknown. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse will hit theaters on December 14th.

All of this remains up in the air, but Sony seems dedicated to the success of their franchise beyond the Venom movie. Instead, Sony has plans to split the pair up and give each of them their own films and that the Black Cat will most likely be the first of the two.

Moving forward, while Sony is developing a series of disparate Spider-Man comics adaptations, they're not necessarily doing so with the idea of a strictly unified cinematic universe in mind. Variety notes that Sony's model differs from that of Marvel or DC in that it's more producer-driven.

It's reported Venom probably won't be R-rated, as Sony wants Spider-Man to eventually appear in sequels, and the Marvel Studios Spidey films have been PG-13, so Sony doesn't want Venom to be too dark and gory as it "could preclude other film match-ups, not just with Peter Parker's alter-ego, but also with other members of the extended" MCU.

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.

"Spider-Man connects to a lot of the characters", Panitch said.
