Spider-Man and Venom are planned to face Knull in Marvel Studios’ Secret Wars crossover epic.
Back in October 2019, Geekosity Editor-in-Chief Mikey Sutton reported that Secret Wars would be the next Endgame-level event for the next phases of the MCU.
Furthermore, Secret Wars will also span across more than just two movies.
In fact, this event will spread out across various MCU projects including theatrical films and Disney Plus series.
A source revealed:
Marvel Studios will use Disney Plus to adapt this massive storyline.
1984’s Secret Wars was a 12-issue limited series.
Planet of the Symbiotes
Marvel Studios and Sony have discussed a spin-off movie based on the five-part Spider-Man story arc, “Planet of the Symbiotes.”
Sutton also scooped “Planet of the Symbiotes” in October 2019 but details were thin.
“Planet of the Symbiotes” revolved around the turbulent relationship between Venom and Eddie Brock.
That’s something that both Venom movies tapped into.
After Spider-Man successfully convinces Brock to abandon Venom, the symbiote is not happy with rejection.
Therefore, he unleashes a telepathic scream which draws more symbiotes to Earth.
Consequently, symbiotes invade and infiltrate the world.
Of course, Sony would want to play a part in Marvel Studios’ next event.
After all, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame became two of the highest-grossing movies ever made.
Moreover, it makes sense that both companies would want to adapt this story, especially after Venom officially became part of the MCU.
Rest assured this will be set in the MCU alongside other installments of Secret Wars.
As usual, Kevin Feige again serves as producer.
The villain that Marvel Studios and Sony are planning to pit against Spider-Man and Venom is Knull.
God of the Symbiotes
Knull was first mentioned in Thor: God of Thunder No. 6 in March 2013.
He first appeared in Venom No. 3 in June 2018.
Furthermore, he is the creator and self-proclaimed God of the Symbiotes.
He is an eldritch god who was born and dwells in the void.
In addition, he created the first symbiote in the shape of a sword.
It‘s possible that in MCU’s version of “Planet of the Symbiotes” the telepathic call that brings the symbiotes to Earth has their creator attached with them.
Spider-Man And Venom To Face Knull In MCU’s Secret Wars Movie
Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends
Insiders add that Spider-Man and Venom might not be against Knull and the symbiotes.
A source claimed that:
Sony wants to include Silk and Spider-Woman.
This will no doubt be the ultimate live-action Spider-Verse pic.
Indeed, Secret Wars will be the perfect setting for it.
The Marvel multiverse now in play.
An insider observed:
Feige isn’t complacent. This is how he will top Endgame.
For Sony, they will unite Spider-Man and his amazing friends with the MCU.
However, the question remains: Will Sony pull the trigger? Money is always the issue.
While this may be true, a source acknoledged:
I’m confident this will go through.
Likewise, Disney will likely proceed.
