5 Other Spider-Man Spinoffs We Want In The MCU,
The cat’s out of the bag now. Despite Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige originally stating that Sony’s upcoming Spider-Man spinoffs Venom and Silver & Black would not be connected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Sony’s Amy Pascal revealed this past weekend that these spinoffs will actually exist within that continuity. Now fans don’t have to worry about Tom Hardy’s Venom, Black Cat and Silver Sable not being connected to Tom Holland’s Spider-Man. These characters may not be major players in the MCU as a whole, but at least it’s confirmed that they’re running around in it.
Now that we know Sony’s Spider-Man spinoff will have at least a few ties to the Spider-Man: Homecoming series, that opens the door for even more spinoffs down the proverbial road; ones that either wouldn’t have been possible if Peter Parker didn’t exist or would have not made for interesting stories if the studio tried to work around his absence. Here are the five spinoffs we hope Sony puts into development soon.
Miles Morales has enjoyed a lot of popularity in the six years since he was introduced, from being featured in the Ultimate Spider-Man TV series to being one of the few holdovers from the Ultimate universe post-Secret Wars. He’s even leading his own animated movie that will be released in December 2018, but why stop there with his big screen exposure? Despite Tom Holland’s willingness to play Peter Parker for two decades, it’s hard to imagine the original Webbed Wonder staying part of the MCU for that long. Fortunately, Marvel and Sony have another Spider-Man to take Peter’s place once he’s gone. Spider-Man has become a legacy hero in the comics, so it would be easy enough to pass the mask to another aspiring young do-gooder with spider-abilities to keep the name living on. Even better, Miles has a few unique abilities to further distinguish himself from Peter, like a venom blast and camouflage mode.
Now that it’s confirmed that Sony’s Spider-Man spinoffs will be set in the MCU, here are the other Spider-centric movies we want the studio to make.
