Sony’s Universe of Marvel movies has a name?
While shared universes don’t seem to be quite as big of a thing as they were a few years ago, they still very much exist. Marvel’s Cinematic Universe still reigns supreme, DC’s is fractured but existent, and the MonsterVerse still plans on finishing its rounds very soon. However, there is one participant many fans refuse to connect in any real meaningful way. I’m talking about the Spider-Man and Spider-Man-adjacent films from Sony.
I mostly say that in kind of a cheeky way. We know Sony is going to connect Venom and Morbius with their new Spider-Man eventually. It just doesn’t make anyone really happy to know it’s coming. Last year, it was revealed that Sony had a specific name they referred to this universe: the Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters.
It’s ugly, it’s gross, it’s a mouthful, but it makes sense. You can take a look at that Sony presentation in the source link down at the bottom. Between the aforementioned films, the MCU-set Spidey movies, and the possible Kraven the Hunter and Madame Web movies, there would be enough to populate it. But that still doesn’t seem to be enough to convince most people that it’s the name they settled on.
There was a recent tweet from the Spider-Man: Far From Home official account. In it, it referred to all the different Spider-Man films as a part of the “Spider-Man Universe of Characters.” This prompted IGN to reach out to Sony. Would this be the new name they refer to their universe as? Furthermore, would it include all previous Spider-Man movies?
Well, Sony reiterated that the universe is called the Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters. It isn’t clear whether or not the films include the old Spidey movies or just the new actual universe. One could assume that it’s just a blanket term used to refer to all their Marvel movies. However, with the advent of the Spider-Verse movies, one could argue they’re pulling a DC, where everything is a part of a multiverse.
Either way, get used to the mouthful of a name Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters. How do you feel about this name that’s been assigned to Sony’s universe? Has it grown on you since last year? Let us know your thoughts down below!
