Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has opened the doors to Venom in the MCU.
2019’s unexpected but brief marital spat between Disney and Sony regarding Spider-Man’s MCU future was a scary time for Spider-Man fans.
Nevertheless, Spider-Gate launched Geekosity after owner/Editor-in-Chief Mikey Sutton scooped the two would reconcile.
Kevin Feige has opened up more about the dispute and what brought them back together.
Furthermore, he teased the possibility of Tom Hardy’s Venom crossing over to the MCU.
During an interview with Rotten Tomatoes, Kevin Feige addressed the fallout between Marvel and Sony which left Spider-Man’s future uncertain.
Moreover, Kevin Feige revealed how they managed to put aside their differences for the sake of the character.
Luckily, Tom Rothman, and Bob Iger, and Alan Horn, and Alan Bergman, and Tom Holland all realized, ‘Wouldn’t it just be more fun if we just kept doing it? Let’s not get business or politics in the way.
Kevin Feige continued to credit everyone’s love of Spider-Man and the MCU as a whole for helping Marvel and Sony come to its new agreement.
Because the deal always started with Amy Pascal and I having nothing to do with numbers, or contracts, or politics. It had to do with story, and a love of Spider-Man and Peter Parker and the Marvel universe. It thankfully has continued like that, and that’s where we find ourselves now.
Kevin Feige Opens Door For Venom In The MCU
During the discussion, Kevin Feige was also asked once again about whether or not we’ll see Tom Hardy’s Venom from Sony’s universe of Marvel characters.
Will he eventually make his way into the MCU and finally clash with Spider-Man?
This time Kevin Feige gave us what seems to be a more optimistic answer but still in his usual coy way regarding the franchise’s future.
I obviously don’t want to talk about rumors or speculation on what could happen or what couldn’t happen as it relates to any characters Marvel Studios hasn’t brought to the screen yet. But I will say what I’ve always said. Having been at Marvel for 20 years I wouldn’t dismiss anything, I wouldn’t rule anything out. When and how and where remains to be seen.
While not a definitive answer, it is definitely a much more insightful and hopeful one than what Feige has given before regarding Venom.
It proves that their short break-up has only strengthened Marvel and Sony’s relationship. Moreover, that will continue to benefit both the studios and the fans going forward.
