Silk Spider-Man

Venom is considered to be the starting point for Sony’s Spider-Man-less Universe. It’s a superhero world where Spider-Man supporting characters, villains, and anti-heroes exist, but without the Webslinger. Don’t worry, many are still trying to wrap their heads around the idea that such a shared universe could work. But the studio believes they have something on their hands, as noted by the announcements of titles like Morbius, starring Jared Leto, and Kraven The Hunter, which is being penned by Richard Wenk.

But Sony has even bigger plans for this developing universe. According to new reports, they are making an effort to bring in more diversity and inclusiveness to it. This includes splitting Silver and Black, the Black Cat and Silver Sable spinoff from Love and Basketball director Gina Prince-Bythewood, into two standalone films. Additionally, the studio has announced plans for Silk, Jackpot, and Nightwatch films that would feature a Korean-American webslinger and an African-American superhero on the big screen. More on the story below.

Venom Starring Tom Hardy

Here’s a new image you might want to sink your teeth into. Just ahead of its panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Sony has dropped new images from Venom, their first Spider-Man-Less spinoff.

While many have questioned if a universe full of supporting Spider-Man characters, villains, and anti-heroes can work, its titles are attracting some talent. For Venom, the talent doesn’t get any bigger than Tom Hardy, who plays the title character. Now before we get to see more from the film at SDCC this week check out the new image, along with what Hardy and director Ruben Fleischer had to say about the film, below.

Ruben Fleischer Talks Venom

If you are still questioning whether or not a film universe full of Spider-Man villains and supporting characters could work without Spider-Man himself, don’t worry, we are too. Venom will still be a story about Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) and his relationship with the alien symbiote. And yet, we know none of that would have ever happened without Spider-Man. But as Marvel and Sony agreed to keep those two worlds separate, it looks like Sony plans on expanding the Spider-Man-less universe by having Venom appear in other films.

Director Ruben Fleischer took some time off his busy schedule to talk about Venom, and he dropped some hints about the character’s future and possible cameos. More on the story, below.

Silver and Black Black Cat and Silver Sable

The saga of Sony’s Spider-Man-less Universe spinoffs continues. The series of spinoffs would give Spider-Man supporting characters their own cinematic universe, but without the prominent webslinger. It’s not clear how that would work, but the studio believes that they could create a successful franchise based on these characters. The upcoming Venom film directed by Ruben Fleischer, a dark take on the anti-hero, would be the first. Silver And Black was to be the second. However, new reports are saying that the film has been taken off Sony’s release schedule. More on the story below.
