    Sony's SMU, or SSMU I guess we can abbreviate it as, used to be Sony Picture's Universe of Marvel Characters. This news comes on day after the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer was officially revealed.

    A couple of takeaways here:
    • Venom is still the first official installment of the SSMU.
    • The Morbius trailer had a cameo by Michael Keaton in the exact same prison outfit he was in at the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming
    • The Morbius trailer also had a poster on the wall of Spider-Man with "murderer" vandalized on top of it. Notably the suit in the poster is of Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man and the image itself used is from the Ps4 game
    • The first Venom: Let There be Carnage trailer had a Daily Bugle newspaper with the same logo used in Tobey Maguire's films
    • The Let There Be Carnage trailer also had a scene of Cletus Kasady smacking a spider on a seemingly prison surface
    • JK Simmons will reportedly reprise his role as J. Jonah Jameson in Let There Be Carnage
    • Sanford Panitch said "there is a plan" to connect Sony's Marvel films with Disney's MCU films
    • Collider and Tom Holland said NwH is the final film in the 2019 Sony/Disney contract, but Variety reported that that contract includes Spider-Man in one more Marvel Studios film
    • Kevin Feige also said in 2019 after the renegotiation that "...[Spider-Man] also happens to be the only hero with the superpower to cross cinematic universes..."

    They should have just called it Spider-Verse.

    I think that will be in the title of a movie eventually (it already has been) so it would be confusing. I think the best name would just be the Spider-Man Cinematic Universe. SMCU.

    Yeah just like Marvel Studios. But Venom 3 is a no brainier. They are probably keeping it secret since Morbius isn't out yet and who knows how is that movie going to perform.
