Back in the Amazing Spider-Man film series days, Sony Pictures was planning on building its own Spider-Man cinematic universe, but due to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 underperforming, those plans were tossed aside once that franchise was cancelled. Sony and Marvel subsequently teamed up to bring the Web-Slinger into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and now Tom Holland's Spider-Man is an important player in that ever-expanding world. Now Sony is looking to have its cake and eat it too, because the studio is also working to build a universe filled with characters from the Spider-Man mythology, but without Web-Head's involvement (at least for now).

Following the announcement of Venom, other Spider-Man spinoffs have been officially revealed or reported on, and while it remains to be seen how connected these movies will be to one another, clearly Sony wants in on the superhero franchise game by itself. With that in mind, let's go over all the Sony Spidey-related movies in the works, and full disclosure, we're not including Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. As cool as that movie looks, this list is reserved for live action projects.

Venom

Ever since Topher Grace played Eddie Brock/Venom in Spider-Man 3, Sony had been trying to get a Venom spinoff off the ground, but when the studio put the kibosh on the Amazing Spider-Man series, it looked like that project was gone for good. But in March 2017, Sony announced that the Venom movie was moving forward, and two months later, Tom Hardy was tapped to play Eddie Brock. With the exception of Peter Parker's absence, Venom looks like it's adapting a fair amount of the source material, like the symbiote coming from outer space, Eddie's relationship with Ann Weying and Eddie clashing with the Life Foundation. There are even rumors that Woody Harrelson is cameoing as Cletus Kasady, setting up his transformation into Carnage in a Venom sequel. Since the plan is for these Spider-Man spinoffs to exist in the same continuity, consider Venom this franchise's Iron Man. Venom comes out on October 5.
