What may link the (2017) film Life, the new sci fi horror thriller starring Ryan Reynolds, Jake Gyllenhall and Rebecca Ferguson to (2007) Spider-Man 3.


What links the new film Life to 2007 Spider-Man 3, apart from both being owned by Sony pictures, but an eagle eye fan spotted in the recent trailer for Life a scene that was remarkably similar to a scene in Spider-Man 3.
 It turns out a small throwaway scene  in Life, a scene set in New York with New Yorkers gasping whilst looking into the air, is actually stock footage used in Spider-Man 3, although not unusual for a film company to use other footage it owns from other movies, many are now suggesting that Life may actually tie in to the Spider-Man universe.
With Life actually being the alien being that attaches itself to Peter Parker in the form of Venom, although I state this is only a fan theory, so please do not think like the film Split that is actually part of the Unbreakable universe, that Life and Spider-Man and Venom are part of the same movie, it is as I said only a fan theory, but it is an interesting one.
