If it sounds too good to be true, it’s probably fake. This is the feeling that I had got when hearing the news that Venom, Black Cat and Sable would be part of the MCU. The story broke on a Twitter video interview with @tomhupdates where she istalking about those characters being in the same universe as Spider-Man: Homecoming, not the MCU. It looks like the web took this as confirmation that Venom, Black Cat and Sable would be part of the MCU. Which if you think about it would be sense, because if Spider-Man can appear with the Avengers on their film, Iron Man appear with Spider-Man in his film and Venom or Black Cat in Spider-Man’s film wouldn’t that make it the same universe?

In my opinion the only reason Marvel has been getting involved with Sony is because Spider-Man is one of the most popular super heroes of all time and want to be able to feature him like they did in Captain America: Civil War. Feige had even said that they had no plan for Venom in the

In a perfect world Marvel Studios would have the rights to all their characters, especially two of their most popular characters in Spider-Man, Wolverine and their first team The Fantastic 4. But because of past deals these properties are all split and forced to exist in separate universes. I think that Feige allowing MCU characters into Sony films or Sony properties in Marvel Studios films is unfair for Marvel Studios as they have worked so hard to build a successful franchise, while Sony has bombed with a super hero that is easily in the top 5 overall up there with Batman and Superman. Does this clarification surprise you? Does the state of some popular Marvel franchises frustrate you? Chime in below!
