Sony Explains That Venom Exists In The “Same Reality” As MCU

Sony's Venom may not appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, however it seems like the Symbiote while share the same reality as Tom Holland's Spider-Man and the other superheroes in Marvel's cinematic franchise.

Speaking in an interview with Fandom to discuss the upcoming Spider-Man movie, Homecoming, Sony producer Amy Pascal clears up the confusion regarding Venom's place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

"First, there is Spider-Man happily in the place where he's supposed to be which is in the Marvel Universe. I think everything comes from that. This is the signpost, the tentpole, the signature and… the other movies that Sony's going to make, in their relationship to this [MCU] Spider-Man, take place in this [separate Sony] world. Although you're not going to see them in the Marvel Universe, it's in the same reality."


Feige had also been present during the interview and confirmed his Spider-Man: Homecoming co-producer's response, saying that it was "the perfect answer." Right now it looks like the official arrangement between Marvel and Sony only consists of the use of Spider-Man, and not the other characters associated with the webslinger. The two may still be working out the kinks of their arrangement further, and this "reality"-sharing gives them time to see how far they can take their partnership in the future.

Spider-Man: Homecoming hits the big screen on July 7, 2017. Venom releases on October 5, 2018.
