Sony’s Spider-Man Cinematic Universe Has A New Name


It’s official! The Sony Pictures Spider-Man cinematic universe, which is what we were calling it up until now, has a new name.

It was revealed at CinemaCon yesterday (via Screen Rant) that Sony Pictures is now referring to their ‘Spider-Verse’ movies, a.k.a. the Venom and Morbius movies, as Sony’s Spider-Man Universe.

So, does this mean that we now have to call it the SSU? I mean, it has a nice ring to it I suppose.

I didn’t know this, but apparently, before now it was actually called Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters, which is a huge mouthful.

No wonder Sony opted to change it.

That meant that up until yesterday, people were calling it the SPUMC, which sounds horrible!

So, I’m assuming that this is referring to Venom, Venom: Let There Be Carnage and the upcoming Morbius films?

So, it’s now called Sony’s Spider-Man Universe – SSU for short

However, there is one confusing thing about this new name, is Spider-Man actually part of Sony’s Spider-Man Universe?

Does this mean that Peter Parker is part of the SSU and the MCU combined?

Well, my guess is yes, he is, as I am pretty sure he’s going to be turning up in Venom: Let There Be Carnage, and maybe even Morbius.
