Sony’s Marvel Universe Gets A Very Odd Official Name

Sony’s Marvel Universe Gets A Very Odd Official Name
You’ve heard of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Universal’s dormant Dark Universe, but what about the SUMC? For the record, that’s the formal name given to Sony’s Universe of Marvel Characters, which is due to kick-off this fall thanks to Venom.

Per Variety, we know Sony has already drawn up plans for Silk, Nightwatch, Morbius, Jackpot and Kraven the Hunter. Silver & Black are headed to the big screen, too, but they’ve since been redirected to individual solo movies. Couple this with the fact that Sony Pictures currently owns film rights to “roughly 900 Marvel characters” big and small, and it’s pretty clear that the SUMC is bursting at the seams with cinematic potential.

That’s assuming things get off to a good start this October, mind you, when all eyes in the industry will turn towards Ruben Fleischer’s standalone Venom movie and its A-list cast.
