Some people (as can be seen above) seemed to expect a multiverse. Venom will actually just be like Coulson/Quake and the AOS characters. Part of MCU but not in the "flagship" Avengers movies.

I don't think that's the case. The Venom series won't be allowed reference anything in the MCU except Spider-man. It essentially will be a different universe... which is all to the good tbh.

Yeah this is the way it'll have to work. In theory you could argue that Venom exists in the same universe as the MCU (in the same vein you could argue Transformers exist in the 616 etc) but in practical terms Marvel would probably demand more and more for every little link to the MCU...

Well Spider-Man is in the MCU so unless they plan on using Andrew Garfield again. Or casting and using Miles Morales. If its the Tom Holland version then Venom is clearly part of the MCU.

Very very technically. Without any form of negotiation, Venom will never appear with any part of the MCU outside of Spidey (who techincally could be removed at any time). I'm sure Sony would be very happy for people to think this, but the reality doesn't match up.

It's like, as I said earlier, saying the Transformers are part of the Marvel comic universe because Spider-Man appeared in their comic once, or the Doctor from Doctor Who was because he shrunk Death's Head down to human size before appearing in Marvel UK.

EDIT: I forgot one of the weirdest not-really marvel cross overs, Machine Man was granted sentience by the monolith from 2001.

At least you understand comics somewhat.

Take this volume of Avengers while Peter is currently serving on the Avengers roster he isn't being confronted by Venom/Ock/Goblin an the other general "spidey only" villains instead its Kang The Conquerer. That doesnt suddenly mean Peters classic villains dont exist or they are non canon to the Marvel Universe. Venom doesnt need to become an Avengers antagonist to prove he exists.

Plenty of longstanding Marvel heroes have their own villians who generally dont become Marvel Team antagonists.

See the thing is though, that's a different situation and completely immaterial. Venom won't be part of the MCU because they don't have the rights to use him in it and Sony don't have the rights to use MCU characters. The fact of Holland's Spider-man being in both doesn't change the fact that, without a specific deal, the Venom movie won't be allowed to reference the MCU and the MCU won't be allowed to reference Venom.

Technically, they coexist but in reality, there's not going to be any crossover.

WHOOOOOA there nelly! No need to be insulting.

This has nothing to do with characters and there stories and everything to do with law and contracts. I was referring to history for humorous effect.

The MCU is owned by Marvel studios. Venom's cinematic rights are owned by Sony. There is a secondary deal which permits Spider-Man to appear in 4 (and 4 only) movies. This does not extend to Venom or any other elements of the license. Marvel will probably be exceedingly careful to not give Sony the free marketing that would imply.

It's just as easy to state that the Spider-Man that appears in the MCU films is another version, another universe, as say that Venom is in the MCU- and in fact makes much more sense for Marvel to do... until Sony return to the negotiating table.

I think the point however is that in that scenario, that's the comic books, and Marvel has the rights to each character. In the films, Marvel now have joint rights for Spider-Man, and Spider-Man can now be in the Marvel movies and the Sony movies. But Venom isn't part of those rights, he's only in the Sony movies. Likewise for Iron Man, Cap etc, they can't be in the non-Spider-Man Sony movies (not even mentioned by name).

So while the Venom movie may have an appearance from Spider-Man or references to Homecoming, they're not going to be able to mention anything to do with the Marvel movies. They won't even be able to use the term 'Avenger'.

So the Venom film can't reference the fact that anything other than Spider-Man exists, and the Marvel movies can't reference anything that happens in the Venom or other Spider-Verse films other than Spider-Man. Spider-Man is the link between the two worlds, but if neither world can acknowledge the other, the link is tenuous at best.

Thats what I said at the start when I said Venom wont appear with Steve or Stark. He'll be tied to Peter only but that doesnt mean that Peter is warped through into bizaro MCU. Venom like Quake/Mr. Hyde/Lorelei wont be acknowledged outside of his own appearances.

Like Lorelei IS an Asgardian but she has never been acknowledged in any way shape or form in any of the Thor films OR the Avengers films. She is still an MCU character due to her presence in the MCU programme Agents of Shield. Venom will get the same treatment.


This appears somehow confusing. Meh. Like I said DoFP lives on still lol.

Gluck
