The Sony Spider-Man universe
Surely you know the Marvel Cinematic Universe if you are a fan of Spider-Man and the Avengers in general.

The Japanese audiovisual giant begins its odyssey with Poison in 2018, directed by Ruben Fleischer (Uncharted, Zombieland). With its Metacritic score of 35%, we can easily say that Venom failed to convince the trade press. The second part, Venom: Let there be carnage, broadcast in 2021, raises the bar a little with a score of 49%. More recently, on April 1, 2022, Morbius was released, which places Jared Leto in the shoes of Dr. Michael Morbius.
