"Because our character does not originate from Spider-Man, it makes no sense to put a spider on his chest".

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the creative minds behind "The Lego Movie" and "21 Jump Street", bring their unique talents to a fresh vision of a different Spider-Man Universe, with a groundbreaking visual style that's the first of its kind. If all goes well, the Venom film will lead to more Sony Marvel movies. With her profile shrinking at Marvel Comics itself in recent years and legitimate questions about whether she's even considered a character Sony holds the rights to, Jessica Drew seems fated to remain in movie limbo.

Sony's upcoming "Spider-Man" spinoff, "Venom", looks pretty dark, but apparently it's not going to lean into that vibe too far: The flick is reportedly no longer aiming for an R rating.

"We're focused on being faithful to the comics", said Sanford Panitch, president of Columbia Pictures, and the executive who has been overseeing what is being dubbed internally, Sony's Universe of Marvel Characters, or SUMC".

They believe Black Cat can stand on her own and will feature in her own film. Before Jake Gyllenhaal had been tapped as Mysterio for Spider-Man: Far From Home, I had been rooting like insane for Kraven to be the next Spider-Man movie villain.

Couple this with the fact that Sony Pictures now owns film rights to "roughly 900 Marvel characters" big and small, and it's pretty clear that the SUMC is bursting at the seams with cinematic potential. While Panitch is the one in charge of this entire enterprise, so to speak, Sony's approach to the actual films will be more "producer-driven", so you can expect lots of variety and deviation on each individual production.
