Sony is in a really curious place as far as their licensed Marvel Comics characters go.
Spider-Man himself is currently being very well-managed by Marvel Studios, who’re essentially producing movies gratis for Sony–so they’re building a branch of the SpiderVerse that doesn’t include him.
Which is a bit problematic because the characters that they’re building their franchise on, Venom, Silver Sable and Black Cat, under most conditions exit alongside Spider-Man (and were in fact introduced in his comic).
So if you take him away you’re (mostly) removing the context that they exist in as well.
Like I said, it’s a problem (though truth be told for those of us not well-versed with the comics it’ll be a relatively small one) .
This version of Spider-Man is Miles Morales, and if I recall for a time existed in an alternate Earth or something to that effect.
