Sony Pictures adds two untitled Marvel movies to its 2023 release slate.
The universe is expanding.
Sony Pictures has officially added two “Untitled Sony/Marvel Universe” films to its 2023 domestic release schedule. The new Sony/Marvel films, both produced by Columbia Pictures, are slated to release in theaters on June 23, 2023 and Oct. 6, 2023, respectively.
In light of this news, fans on social media have already begun speculating that one of these untitled films will be a sequel to Venom: Let There Be Carnage — likely the one scheduled for October 2023, as both Venom movies thus far have had October release dates. However, whether or not this is actually the case remains to be seen.
In the same announcement, Sony revealed that Columbia Pictures’ A Journal for Jordan has been delayed to Dec. 25 of this year. The film was previously slated to premiere in New York and Los Angeles on Dec. 10 before getting a wide release on Dec. 22. Additionally, TriStar Pictures’ The Nightingale — previously scheduled for release on Dec. 23, 2022 — has been delayed indefinitely.
Sony Pictures’ franchise of live-action Marvel spinoff films based around Spider-Man’s rogues’ gallery began in 2018 with Venom, continuing this year with Venom: Let There Be Carnage. Sony also brought an animated Spider-Man project to the big screen in the form of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse in 2018.
Sony’s lineup of upcoming Marvel spinoff films currently includes the live-action movies Morbius and Kraven the Hunter, as well as the animated sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Morbius is scheduled for release on Jan. 28, 2022, followed by Spider-Verse 2 on Oct. 7, 2022 and Kraven on Jan. 13, 2023. Then, of course, there’s the newly-confirmed untitled films scheduled for June and October of 2023.
While fans seem convinced that one of these untitled films is Venom 3, Sony is said to be developing a number of other Spider-Man spinoff movies, including The Sinister Six, Madame Web and an untitled Olivia Wilde-directed movie believed to feature the character of Spider-Woman.
Before any of that, however, there’s the Marvel Cinematic Universe film Spider-Man: No Way Home, a co-production between Sony and Marvel Studios, which is scheduled to hit theaters later this year on Dec. 17. Notably, the film is expected to tap into the multiverse in order to integrate characters from Sony’s previous Spider-Man film franchises, with promotional material already confirming that Willem Dafoe’s Norman Osborn/Green Goblin from 2002’s Spider-Man and Alfred Molina’s Otto Octavius/Doctor Octopus from 2004’s Spider-Man 2 will be involved.
