Sony Pictures Entertainment finally released the trailer for Venom 2: Let There Be CARNAGE, the much-awaited sequel of Tom Hardy’s Venom.

Of course, Marvel fans are excited to see Tom Hardy back as Venom. But at the same time, everyone is disappointed that the trailer didn’t have any superhero cameo.

So, even after watching the trailer, fans aren’t sure if Sony’s Venom falls in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe). But fans are eager to know if they’ll ever get to see Tom Holland’s Spider-Man and Tom Hardy’s Venom on the same screen.

Is Venom in the MCU?

Honestly, if you are looking for a direct answer to this question, there isn’t any. We have the speculations based on the Venom 2 trailer and the recent Marvel Phase 4 announcement.

After watching the Venom 2 trailer, it’s hard to say that the character is in MCU. Also, the recent Marvel Phase 4 announcement didn’t feature Venom 2, raising many questions about Venom’s existence in that universe.

However, things aren’t that simple, especially if you look back at the Morbius trailer. Morbius is another Marvel character falling under Sony’s shadow, for those of you who don’t know.

The trailer of Morbius came out back in 2020, starring Jared Leto as Michael Morbius. And since Sony currently has the rights for both Venom and Morbius characters, it’s safe to assume that both movie universes could very well be connected.

However, what’s truly interesting is that Morbius’ trailer proves that the movie is connected with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man. That’s because, at the end of the Morbius trailer, we can see Michael Keaton, aka Vulture (From Spider-Man: Homecoming), making an appearance.

It clearly states that both Tom Holland’s Spider-Man and Jared Leto’s Morbius exist in the MCU. Meaning, Tom Hardy’s Venom could also fall in Marvel Cinematic Universe.

However, both Sony and Marvel have been tight-lipped on this topic. It might be because both studios are still working on a deal, and they want to make things official just yet. Nevertheless, we’ll probably have a more solid answer to our question as we get closer to Venom 2’s release.
