Spider-Man: Homecoming In Same Universe As Venom, Silver & Black

Wait, what? Yea. After both Kevin Feige (last April) and Jon Watts (director of Spider-Man: Homecoming) went on record saying that both the Venom (headlined by Tom Hardy) and Silver & Black films would NOT be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Sony's Amy Pascal went on record saying that both those films would be part of the same universe as Spider-Man: Homecoming. Which means both those movies will be in the MCU as well.

Huh? Man, I don't know. Apparently neither does Kevin Feige. He can be seen sitting beside Pascal during the interview by Filmstarts looking quite uncomfortable as Pascal spills the beans. Is it because she spoke when they weren't ready to reveal that information just yet, or because she's saying things that just aren't true? We'll have to wait and see, but suffice it to say the internet has replaced the Sad Affleck meme with the Confused Kevin Feige meme.

Asked if Tom Holland would make an appearance in any of the films, Pascal said, “There’s a chance. There’s always a chance. I think one of the things that Kevin has done with Marvel that’s so brilliant is bringing the fans along and making each movie seem like a chapter in a book that you have to read in order to go forward, and I think the investment that the fans get to feel in being part of a larger story and understanding what’s happening is something that I know Sony would want to emulate.” With six films on Tom Holland's MCU contract and three of them spoken for by way of Spider-Man films, there are only three left. One or two of them very well may be the Avengers movies coming in the next couple of years, which leaves one film unaccounted for. Your guess is as good as mine. And as good as Feige's, apparently.
