Everyone needs a friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man, and perhaps that is why the character's legacy — and universe — has endured for so long on the silver screen.

Sony has kept a tight hold of the rights to the Marvel franchise since bringing the character to audiences with Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy starring Tobey Maguire, though they chose to make a landmark deal with Marvel in 2015 that allowed Tom Holland to don the webslinger's suit for the MCU.

Over the years, Sony has been expanding the Spider-Man universe little by little, and things kicked into high gear after the box office success of Venom. The film opened the door for Sony's own cinematic universe, one they had long sought after, which focuses on various iconic villains from the Spidey comics.

This means that there are plenty of films in the Spider-Man universe for fans to look forward to.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse delighted audiences worldwide but the third film in the franchise, titled Beyond the Spider-Verse, is currently stuck in a bit of web-tangle.

Rejecting the idea that all Spider-people have to follow the same path as Miguel O'Hara (Oscar Isaac) tells him, he escapes and ends up in the universe where he Miles Morales is the Prowler.
