Venom: Let There Be Carnage has finally opened in theaters, yet one would not know by taking a gander at Marvel’s social media as there is no mention of the film. The first Venom was a surprise hit when it opened in theaters, grossing $856.1 million around the world, and Sony put in an energy to extend their own artistic universe. Venom: Let There Be Carnage is the second film in Sony’s Spider-Man Universe and features Marvel characters Venom, Carnage, and Shriek.
Despite all this, apparently Marvel has not made any reference to its release. On the Marvel website, there is no mention of the release of Venom: Let There Be Carnage. Under the film tabs they have all of the MCU films and the Fox movies that were gained in Disney’s Acquisition, yet no mention of the non-MCU Sony films. The Marvel Entertainment Twitter also has made no reference to the release of Venom: Let There Be Carnage, which instead is reminding fans to get tickets for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
Before Marvel Studios, Marvel would put emphasis on all of their films on their websites, and even with the release of Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk in 2008, the organization would still put focus on non-MCU properties like X-Men: Origins Wolverine, which would be the last Fox X-Men film to get a toyline. Anyway once Disney purchased the studio, there was a greater amount of a work to put focus on characters the organization had film rights to. The X-Men in the comics assumed a lower priority in relation to the Inhumans, as Marvel was positioning them to be the MCU substitution for the group and the cast of the 2015 Fantastic 4 reboot was even killed off in the pages of a Punisher comic. Since Disney and Marvel obtained the rights for the two franchises, The X-Men and Fantastic 4 have had massive returns in the comics.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage is made by Sony, and Marvel Entertainment, which is a subsidiary of Disney, is still hoping to put the emphasis on their films first with Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings still in theaters and Eternals a month away. The two studios will probably work closely together on the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home as the two studios have a stake in that film’s success. In any case, this means that Morbius will probably also get disregarded on the Marvel social media sites, as well in future Sony Spider-Man films.
