But beyond being snapped away and back again, it would seem that there’s a degree of finality in the decision made by Sony Picture’s decision on his continuation. Sony Pictures chairman and CEO Tony Vinciquerra stated that “for the moment the door is closed” on the webslinger returning to the MCU.
However, he cryptically added that “it’s a long life”, which implies a distant future. Makes you wonder how long is life? A lifetime or just life on Earth? I am guessing the latter, so we’ll see. Variety mentioned that Tony took notice of the fan backlash with having experienced “an interesting couple of weeks”. He also mentioned that although Marvel Studios’ people were great, that it wasn’t all on Feige.
Vinciquerra mentioned launching their own universe which was something that was speculated in the past with hopeful fans pontificating an eventual Sinister Six team-up. Not saying that’s in the cards now, but Variety mentioned a Venom 2 in the works, so you never know if that’ll be the movie to set things up for the “Spider-Verse”. Vinciquerra mentioned Sony planning on the aforementioned.
“The studio is in production on a second “Venom” film, a picture based on the character Morbius and “five or six” TV series set in the Spider-Man world”.
So it sounds pretty promising for Sony. So in lieu of the recent Into the Spider-Verse animated flick as well as Sony-Amazon’s The Boys series, Vinciquerra is confident the webslinger will do fine on his own outside of the MCU.
A highly passionate geek about all things 80s retro, geeky, sci-fi, and just about anything pop-culture. Tony enjoys writing about this very topic as well as immerse himself into the culture by attending events. There’s nothing more fun than rubbing elbows with other interested cohorts of the craft.
