Sony Still Has Plans For A Spider-Man Cinematic Universe

The day that Sony and Marvel decided to bury the hatchet, combine their efforts and work toward crafting a collaborative Spider-Man movie was a turning point. It’s not unheard of for studios to join forces on projects, but for a universal brand like the webslinger, you might expect Sony to happily keep him at home.

Luckily, the deal between the two studios resulted in Tom Holland being cast as Peter Parker. After his exuberant debut in Captain America: Civil War, he’s now hard at work headlining the first in a new series of Spidey flicks, Spider-Man: Homecoming. Beyond his first solo outing, there’s been no concrete news on the future of the webhead. We know that Sony is financing and Marvel is creative chief, but what about more movies set in a new Spider-Man universe? Well, according to Sony Pictures chairman Tom Rothman, plans for Spidey’s own universe are still in play.

The last attempt to rekindle the Spider-Man franchise gave us Marc Webb’s two-movie series, which was met with a lacklustre response due to its similarity to Sam Raimi’s franchise. When a potential third outing for Webb and co. was axed, it seemed as if the long-rumored spinoffs for Sinister Six, and so on, were also tossed out.

If what Rothman says is true, it could be that those spinoffs merely needed anchoring to a better ‘main’ Spider-Man movie at the heart of the franchise. If Spider-Man: Homecoming delivers, that Venom film might get the greenlight after all.
