Does “Venom 2” belong to the MCU? The director responds

Venom 2 has surprised fans with the first images via YouTube. The first trailer for Venom: Let There Be Carnage brought the community back to debating the symbiote’s alleged connection to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or at least the Spider-Man movies, starring Tom Holland. The truth is that none of this already makes sense according to the director of Venom 2.

Filmmaker Andy Serkis revealed that the movie inspired by the Marvel comic book villain has its own universe, so the plot doesn’t fit the MCU’s historical line.

“Of course, there are some connections between Venom: Let There Be Carnage movie and Spider-Man, with the Marvel universe and the history of Spider-Man. However, we are treating this movie as its own world. Venom’s story takes place in his own world. There are nods to the Spider-Man universe at times, of course, but in our movie no one is aware of other characters, like Spider-Man, ”he pointed out.

The first images of Venom 2 show various details related to the Spider-Man universe, such as the Daily Bugle newspaper and even an apparent mention of the Avengers. From what Serkis said, the details would be nothing more than easter eggs to appeal to Marvel fans.

Loki’s official tweeter posted a video featuring actor Tom Hiddleston, who plays the God of Mischief, to announce that there was a change in the release date. The Marvel artist laments the fact that his character is often left out of the limelight when it comes to superhero montages, but this time, things will be a little different as he proclaims that “Wednesdays are the new Fridays. ”.

The Loki series takes place after the events of Avengers: Endgame, when the Avengers travel to the past, precisely to the battle of New York in 2012, and by mistake make Loki escape using the Tezeracto. This is how the character is recruited by the Temporal Variation Authority to fix the timeline and thus avoid the “elimination of reality.”
