Sony Exec Teases MCU Spider-Man Connection

Ever since Sony launched their first Spidey-less Marvel project with 2018’s Venom, fans have had a single question on their minds: will Spider-Man ever actually appear in one of these supervillain origin stories? Until now, the answer has always seemed to be a resounding “who’s to say?” from all those involved with the films. In fact, Venom: Let There Be Carnage director Andy Serkis recently went out on a limb to say “no” outright. However, a new article from Variety features a rather intriguing quote from Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group President Sanford Panitch in reference to the topic. After a brief discussion, in which Panitch explains that Sony doesn’t view their roster of 900 Marvel characters as part of a simple “Spidey-verse”, the high-ranking executive does let something slip in regards to a possible MCU cross-over:

There actually is a plan. I think now maybe it’s getting a little more clear for people where we’re headed and I think when ‘No Way Home’ comes out, even more will be revealed.

The confirmation is wildly exciting, but it’s also not entirely surprising. After all, Spider-Man: Homecoming‘s Michael Keaton appeared in the first trailer for Sony’s upcoming Morbius, and it’s been mostly public knowledge for some time that No Way Home will feature a live-action Marvel multiverse. The doors that film is set to open will most likely be what allows for the entrance of these other-worldly bad guys into the wider MCU. It may also be the best way to explain how Peter Parker ends up fighting a Kraven the Hunter who looks suspiciously like Pietro Maximoff.
