Think this whole Spider-Man/MCU/Venom situation couldn’t get any more complicated? Well, think again.
An interview with Amy Pascal, a Sony Executive, and Kevin Feige, Marvel Studios President, shows Pascal claiming that all of these recently announced Spider-Man spinoff films take place within the Marvel cinematic universe.

Although we’ve been told the universes will be kept seperate, it looks like that is not the case any longer.
“Those movie will all take place in the world that we’re creating for Peter Parker. I mean, they’ll be adjunct to it; they may be different locations, but it will still all be in the same world and they will be connected to each other as well.”
After being asked about the chance of Tom Holland appearing in a Sony-developed Spidey spinoff, she said:
“[Laughing] There’s always a chance.”
Is this a backdoor way of getting R-rated films in the MCU? Given that a true Venom movie likely needs the mature rating to be done well, this might be the solution.
