With 900 characters in the stable, calling the franchise a "Spider-Man Universe" is somewhat limiting. But it seems Sony has realised how silly this is and is making some adjustments to change that.
Panitch emphasized this new Sony's Universe of Marvel Characters will embrace diversity, "We feel there's no reason the Marvel characters shouldn't be able to embrace diversity". That "first step" for this SUMC will be decidedly less blood-soaked than you would have thought though.
The plot for the movie follows journalist Eddie Brock as he learns to cope with his new symbiote powers, all while investigating the mysterious Life Foundation led by Riz Ahmed's Carlton Drake. In the comics, he bites people's heads off and eats brains. We tried to honor it as closely as possible.
That's according to Variety, which reports that an R - which was to have been a first in the Marvel-Sony partnership - is "unlikely" at this point for "Venom", which will instead "push the very limits of PG-13 without crossing over into a higher rating".

Jose Mourinho aims early dig at 'serial winners' Liverpool and Tottenham

Manchester United had been competing with the Toffees for Mina, but the Old Trafford club pulled out of negotiations that morning. According to Sky Sports, the 24-year old is having a medical at Spanish City to save on time as the Transfer Deadline nears.
"The feeling is [the lower rating] will give the studio greater leeway for future installments that will feature Spider-Man", Variety reports.
Plans have already been announced to make a film based on Morbius, a vampire villain from the Spider-Man comics starring Jared Leto, as well as recruiting Richard Wenk (The Equalizer 2) to write a film based on Kraven the Hunter. Adding a larger Marvel Universe spin to it raises the profile of the franchise significantly - as well as the inevitable confusion amongst casual moviegoers, who won't get all the particulars of why certain characters can't crossover, etc. The status of spin-offs Silver & Black and Nightwatch were, however, in doubt - until now. However, it has been reported that one of the films-Silver and Black-is no longer happening. Prince-Blythewood will still be attached as producer to both films, but it doesn't appear like she'll be helming either.
Personally, I think it's all a little messy though.
Now that Spider-Man is in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, she'd likely just come off as derivative and confusing to more mainstream MCU fans, and just her character name may be flying too close to the sun at Sony. All Sony is really doing at the moment is temporarily withholding toys for Marvel to play with. They are extending that relationship with Spider-Man sequel, Spider-Man: Far From Home. It is set for release on October 5th.
