The big superhero news of the day is that Tom Hardy will play Venom. To announce the news, Sony tweeted that the film would be part of ‚ÄúSony‚Äôs Marvel Universe‚ÄĚ but that sounds weird. Maybe even a little sad. Guys, we need to help them come up with a better name.

From what we understand, ‚ÄúSony‚Äôs Marvel Universe‚ÄĚ will be a set of movies starring Spider-Man villains, like Venom and the in-development Black Cat and Silver Sable. But they won‚Äôt star Spider-Man, because he‚Äôs being used by Disney in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Which is an excellent name, by the way‚ÄĒdescriptive, accurate, evenclean.


So what should Sony name this series of Spidey villain movies? Here’s a few we came up with:

  • Sony‚Äôs Marvel‚Äôs Spider-Man‚Äôs Universe
  • Sony‚Äôs Small Slice of Marvel‚Äôs Cinematic Universe
  • Sony‚Äôs Spider-Man-Less Cinematic Half-a-verse
  • The No Spider-Verse
  • The Superior Foes of Spider-Verse
