In the last five years, things have turned around a lot for Spider-Man fans. Following the release of the disappointing The Amazing Spider-Man 2, fans prepared themselves for merely having to settle for whatever underwhelming movie they were given, as Sony Pictures retained the rights to the character and did what they pleased with him. That all changed when the studio struck a deal with Marvel Studios in 2015, leading towards Tom Holland‘s debut of the character in Captain America: Civil War alongside the rest of the iconic Marvel Cinematic Universe heroes.
Now Spider-Man fans have the MCU, the Venom spin-offs, and the animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse too. As a cherry on top, Sony exec Amy Pascal has confirmed that Holland’s version of the character could find himself meeting up with venom in a future movie.
A Spider-Man And Venom Crossover Is Possible
Pascal shared with Fandango that:
“I can say that we’ve had a fantastic partnership and you never know what’s going to happen. We have a lot of stories to tell about Spider-Man, in every facet.”
When pressed for specifics, Pascal replied jokingly, “We have big plans for Tom Holland to be a part of everything. Every movie we ever do! He needs to be in every movie I ever work on!”
Sony and Marvel Studios have collaborated before on the Spider-Man movies, the Venom franchise and the upcoming Moebius film. The latter one doesn’t feature the wall crawler prominently and it will lead audiences to wonder how those villain spin-offs will move forward. Given how closely connected Venom’s mythology is to Spider-Man, Pascal weighed in on Spidey appearing in a Venom movie at some point in the future:
“Everybody would love to see that, You never know someday…it might happen.”
There was also another spider related success last year with Into the Spider-Verse, leading audiences to wonder if Miles Morales or any of the film’s other characters could debut in live action production. She said:
“I don’t think you should exclude [Miles from a live-action movie]. I think you should assume there us nothing to exclude.”
For The Spider-Man Venom Crossover To Work, The Individual Movies Have To Work
Pascal noted that while there are many possibilities for all of these characters, the priority is delivering audiences compelling stories above all else.
She also said that:
“The major thing to Venom (Tom Hardy), to Tom Holland, Spider-Man, Spider-Verse is that a wonderful and as tempting as it is to connect the dots, nothing works if the individual movies don’t work and have their own integrity. And that is the key to it all.”
