Sony Pictures spinoff is intended to kick off a new loosely-connected universe of Marvel Comics adaptations, but Venom will not take place in the same universe as the Marvel Studios/Sony co-production Spider-Man: Homecoming.

02. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse directed by Bob Perschietti and Peter Ramsey is set to release on 14th of December 2018.

Sony originated this animated Spider-Man movie with an idea by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, with Lord penning the script solo while the duo prepped Solo: A Star Wars Story (which they eventually departed). This animated feature will kick off a new Spider-Man franchise different from the live-action one, but the kicker is that the Spider-Man of this movie is the black Miles Morales, not Peter Parker.

X-Men writer/producer Simon Kinberg has penned the script and is making his directorial debut on the project, which also stars Jessica Chastain as maybe the villain Lilandra and is bringing back pretty much the entire main X-Men cast.

Hans Zimmer is coming out of superhero movie retirement to compose the score.
