"Well it’s set, Sony’s Marvel film properties have an official name – the Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters (SPUMC).

In recent times people have been labelling the films – which include “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse,” “Venom,” all the previous Spider-Man films, and some upcoming titles – either the Spidey-verse or the Spider-Man Universe of Characters.

However IGN reached out to the studio this week for clarification on what their Marvel movie universe should be called and were told its official name is the ‘Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters’. The studio apparently first coined the term for the films back in 2019."

I guess it could always be worse. They could have named it SSUC: Sony's Spiderman Universe Collective.

it doesn't even make sense.

Venom and Morbius and its sequels will be in the same universe. But including the other films doesn't work. The Tobey Maguire films are clearly not in the same universe as the Andrew Garfield films which are clearly not in the same universe as Venom which is clearly not in the same universe as Into the Spider-Verse. So the idea of putting one label on all of these very different films doesn't work. I guess you could say that they're all alternate universes to each other, an idea which Spider-Verse used, but effectively, each of the iteration of the character has been separate.

Hell, the concept of a cinematic universe didn't even exist when Tobey's films were released, because Marvel started that with the release of Iron Man the year after Spider-Man 3.

Heh.

Sounds like the work of an intern and/or somebody who knows very little to nothing about comic books.
