Sony’s Official Name For The ‘Spider-Man’ Universe Isn’t Sitting Well With Fans

Sony has revealed its official name to tag its collection of Marvel movies, and it sure is a mouthful.

The studio now owns the rights to all Spider-Man films, as well as spin-off movies that feature the characters from the Spider-Man comic books. To house all of these films together, Sony decided to create a proper cinematic universe and call it the “Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters,” also known as the SPUMC.

Movies such as Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man: Far From Home and Venom are now all part of the SPUMC.

IGN announced the brand name from Sony, and fans were not liking it at all. “SPUMC sounds like an STD,” one Twitter user joked. “I’m sorry, but you tested positive for SPUMC.”

“So, SPUMC? Playing a dangerous game there guys,” another user said.

While the moniker doesn’t lend itself to a clever acronym, the universe is certainly expected to expand with oncoming films. Oscar-winning film Spider-Man: into the Spider-Verse and the sequel to Venom, Let There Be Carnage, will be part of the SPUMC.

You’ve got some real spumc, kid https://t.co/rO0EKNd2hL
