A New Spider-Man Spin-Off Movie Is Coming, But It's Not Part Of The MCU

Sony is planning a new spin-off, and it's hired a big name to write the script.


A new Spider-Man spin-off movie is coming, but it's not going to be part of the MCU. According The Wrap, Sony has hired Amazing Spider-Man 2 writer Roberto Orci to write a new spin-off. There is no word on which character the movie will focus on, however.

The key thing to know here is that this movie will be part of Sony's own Spider-Man universe, and not the MCU. Sony's Spidey universe also includes Venom and Morbius, among others.

Orci is a Hollywood veteran. He co-created the TV shows Fringe and the Hawaii Five-O reboot, while he also wrote the new Star Trek movies and Mission: Impossible III.

As for Sony's comic book hero universe, the next movie on the way is Morbius, which stars Jared Leto and opens in theatres this July. The Tom Hardy-starring Venom 2, directed by Andy Serkis, will follow in October. 2018's Venom was bashed by critics but it made $856 million worldwide, making it one of the year's most successful movies at the box office.

Sony and Disney (which owns Marvel) had a falling out over the future of Spider-Man's existence in the MCU, and Sony had a plan to move forward with its own Spider-Man series. However, the two sides eventually came to terms, and Tom Holland's Spider-Man will stay in the MCU for the time being.
