Groan.

This bugged me since I still see Sony's Universe of Marvel Characters as a cheap way to one-up Marvel, but if this keeps Spidey in the MCU, I guess there could be worser things.

Thinking about it, this could make or break any kind of theory that the SUMC is really just the MCU as licensed by Sony if Venom 2 establishes that Venom 1 took place during the five-year time skip in Avengers: Endgame and Venom 2 takes place a while after Spider-Man: Far From Home, which saw Peter on the lam courtesy of Mysterio.

But Sony doesn’t exactly fill me with confidence given who’s running the joint (cough cough Tom Rothman cough cough).

I'm praying it's just a non-canon cameo of Holland as a pizza delivery boy.
You guys are thinking too literally about canon. If Marvel Studios really has a problem with the canon they can ignore Venom. The new contract allows them to discuss it but anyone think Feige will? I mean, the Marvel TV shows were supposed to be canon too but the movies never bring them up. It's possible the Venom movies will only be MCU canon in the Venom movies themselves.

Or thinking about it just like how the J.K Simmons J. Jonah Jamenson from the Sam Ramni movies is a different J. Jonah Jamenson then the one J.K Simmons plays in the MCU, this Tom Holland Spider-Man could be one totally separate from the MCU. i mean Spider Man Far From Home hinted at a multiverse that Dr. Strange's sequel will deal with more directly so it can already be assumed there's a multi verse in place so they are just going to say the Venomverse is it's own universe with it's own Peter Parker that yeah is Tom Holland but one who works differently then the one in the MCU films. Honestly I'm hoping they go with that if they are going to have Holland in these movies: IMHO it's too late to really do the whole Venom rivarly properly within the Venomverse but you could still have fun with a different kind of take on the character. Hell what if like the take of Peter Parker in the Venomverse had him as more a criminal Spider-Man to showcase Venom as more the hero? that'd be a unique way of differing things out. Doubt they'd go that direction but "different Tom Holland then MCU one for Spider Man" still makes the most sense for me.

The editor-in-chief for Discussing Film has an update regarding the Tom Holland cameo rumor:


For context, while studios would be quick to point out when a rumor is fake, when they say something like "no comment," that usually means the rumor's legit.

There's still a chance it's bogus, but keep your ears on the ground just in case...

I'm one of those people that's more familiar with Sonic's arch-enemy being called "Dr. Ivo Robotnik" rather than "Eggman".

As I mentioned, Melanie Minichino should definitely sing more.
it is kinda weird how despite Frozen being the highest grossing animated movie until Lion King 2019, there were no mainstream animated movies that tried to copy it, or at least accused of copying Frozen. I wonder why?
Just letting you guys know: I'm changing my username in two weeks. It's similar to the original, but a bit more wordy.
