From the studio that (technically) brought you Spider-
Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home.

When I first started reading comics as a kid, I was fascinated with vampires and especially Morbius... I must have read and re-read Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #6 every night for a month (August 1977, to be exact!), sitting in my bed by the window at night, said comic in my hands, illuminated by the eerie glow of the nearby street light...

I had no real hopes for a big-budget feature, and the dialogue is more than a little on the cliche side... but the direction seems slick & solid, and they appear to have caught just the right tone for the film.

Barring any awful reviews, I just might be there!

Jared Leto is a bit of a red flag.

So, Vulture’s in it. And there was a Spider-Man poster on a building
behind him in one scene that had “murderer” spray painted on it. Are
they trying to keep the MCU continuity intact within the Sony Spider-
Films?

Brian, why wouldn't they do that? It seems logical.

Because it’s two different studios?

I found it interesting that the Spider-Man in the poster is the Raimi/Maguire Spider-Man version.

Who currently are sharing a property , which Sony has the rights to indefinitely. As long as it doesn't conflict with the agreement between Disney and Sony, why wouldn't Sony tie their Spider-Man films into the highly popular and successful MCU films starring their property? It makes very logical sense to do so, as much as it does to advertise "from the studio who brought you 'Spider-Man: Homecoming," even though that  is only half true. That tells you right there that they are playing the MCU connection for all its worth. And their deal with Disney clearly allows for this sort of thing.  Heck, being able to tie their spinoffs to the MCU might be part of the reason they were able to come to an agreement with Disney on this next set of films.

There were reports at the time that the new deal was signed that one of the concessions that Disney made was to give Sony access in their films to the contents of the Spider-Man standalone films.  So I don't think that they can have, say, Thor show up in Venom 2.  But they can use Mysterio, Vulture, etc.  There are rumors that Tom Holland might even show up in Venom 2, but if that's the case, I imagine they'll keep it a secret for as long as possible.

Steve, that was my understanding about the deal, also.
