  • Tom Hardy and Prince Harry had one phrase to describe his friendship with Prince Harry

But Sony appears to be open to throwing the door open even further, according to a report on the state of Sony's Marvel projects in Variety.

It's been a complicated road to understanding the relationship between Sony's series of Spider-Man-less spinoff movies and the mainline Marvel Cinematic Universe. This also includes the many heroes and villains who have appeared in Spider-Man comics over the years, and there are various spin-off movies on the way, including the upcoming Venom.

While Venom is known for being one of the more darker characters in comics, Tom Hardy and director Ruben Fleischer are working to inject humor into the story of journalist Eddie Brock whose body and mind are taken over by an alien symbiote.

Venom will be released in theaters on October 5, 2018. If Venom is kept at PG-13, the studio believes there will be greater leeway in having characters cross over within the films.

The movie follows Eddie as he learns to cope with his new powers, all while investigating the mysterious Life Foundation led by Riz Ahmed's Carlton Drake.

Ruby Rose Became Very Emotional After Landing The Role Of Batwoman
First introduced in 1956, Batwoman largely disappeared from continuity until 2006, when she was reintroduced and reinvented. Rose will debut as Batwoman in this year's DC-CW crossover before spinning off into a solo pilot and potential series.

Regarding Kraven the Hunter, Richard Wenk (The Equalizer 2) is now writing the script, with the film moving forward.

"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.

While many have commonly referred to Sony's planned universe as the "Spider-Verse", it turns out the studio has a different name for it.

In addition, Sony has officially scrapped the female driven Silver & Black film that was supposed to feature the Black Cat, a thief, and Sliver Sable, a ruthless mercenary.
