Comicbook has reported that Sony's future "Venom" movie will not be a part of the popular Marvel Cinematic Universe. Sony released a statement that the "Venom" movie and future films will be based on characters from the Spider-Man comics, while also being in a separate world from Tom Holland's Spider-Man featured in 'Spider-Man: Homecoming.'

The writing has been on the wall for at least a year as Marvel Studios executives including Kevin Feige, Joe Russo, and actor Tom Holland have acknowledged that "Venom" would not be a part of Disney's massive Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Last year Sony's Amy Pascal misspoke and hinted that there was a possibility, causing a lot of fan speculation. Pascal seemed to hint at a similar relationship that Marvel Studios and Marvel Television have, where the TV shows unofficially exist in the same universe but have not officially crossed over.

The MCU is avoiding working with Spider-Man

The MCU has even made it clear they don't want any part of "Venom." There's now a consideration of this new Spider-Man spinoff into a franchise of darker Spider-Man spinoffs. There's even a possibility of a franchise, allowing the Venom character to grow over multiple films.

Screenrant has said that Eddie Brock, also known as Venom appears to be the founding member of its own cinematic universe, as Sony's set to release 'Silver & Black,' and 'Morbius, the Living Vampire.' There are also talks of a Kraven the Hunter movie possibly in the future. 'Silver & Black,' has faced multiple delays, leaving many people to wonder when it will actually be brought to life.

Sony rebooting franchise with hopes of focus on Spider-Man villains

Eddie Brock is a journalist until he gains his new powers. Venom's ties to Spider-Man caused a massive debate on whether or not the film will have any ties to Holland or the MCU in any way. Sony was able to reboot the Spider-Man franchise after reaching a deal with Marvel Studios, that shared the character with both studios.

With Tom Holland as the new Peter Parker, Sony wants more appearances from the web-slinger.

Sony just launched a new push for the film, releasing new images of Venom. Both Tom Hardy and "Venom" director Ruben Fleischer have spoken out about the horror movie influences and the gruesome kills included in the film. While Kevin Feige has claimed that "Venom" will not be part of the MCU, the studio won't confirm Phase 4 plans until after "Avengers 4." "Venom" is scheduled to be released October 5th.
