While it seems that Sony mostly wants these potential crossovers to help their own major franchises, it still leaves the door open for an even more expansive Spider-Man universe within and outside of the MCU. Sony had a surprising amount of success with 2018’s Venom, earning $856 million at the global box office and setting up a green light for the 2021 sequel Venom: Let There Be Carnage.
In a new post from scooper DanielRPK’s Patreon account, Sony Pictures reportedly wants to have more crossovers with the MCU to help boost their own Sony Universe of Marvel Characters. This includes examples such as Venom and other symbiotic beings appearing in Marvel Studios’ MCU projects.
According to DanielRPK, Sony had even hoped have Captain America help set up the Sinister Six, although now such a move would have to happen with Sam Wilson’s Cap instead of Steve Rogers.
Other projects in the works right now are the Jared Leto-led Morbuis, whose theatrical release was delayed to 2021, and the untitled Olivia Wilde-directed movie announced over the summer.
