Going by the post-credits scene of No Way Home, it looks like it’s barely a matter of time before we see Tom Holland’s Spider-Man going against its arch-nemesis Venom in the MCU. While it’s still to be confirmed if Tom Holland will finally don Spider-Man’s iconic Venom suit in Spider-Man 4, a concept artist who is involved with the Spider-Man franchise has already imagined what this would look like. On Tuesday, visual artist Thomas du Crest had shared four seperate pictures with Holland’s web-slinger donning the costume.
“While I wait for the greenlight to show the work I did for [Spider-Man: No Way Home], here is a small take on what might come next,” the artist tweeted.
Here’s the tweet:

du Crest has quite a budding resume when it’s about visual development as he had already worked as a conceptual artist on Far From Home, Endgame and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
While Holland has stayed quiet about crossing over with Tom Hardy’s Venom, but the latter is excited for such a moment.
Of course, it’s in our minds all the time,” Hardy previously told ComicBook.com. “Look at the photo! That’s little Spidey legs hanging out of the teeth of Venom. It’s really… It’s really specific. It’s like a Kabib call out.” Hardy does note, he wants to see Venom take a bite out of Spider-Man but not Tom Holland. “Actually, just the Spider-Man, love Tom,” he said. “You know what I mean?”
“I think you can’t do a Venom story without knowing Spider-Man is in the mix,” he concluded. “He’s somewhere. But we all know there’s a big constellation of events, you know, that need to move and operate around. As grown-ups, we have to go, ‘Okay, we wait.’ We wait for those planes to land and when they land, we’ll see if we can get on one but until then we focus on the task at hand which is Venom 2. But it’s always in the back of our minds, you know? ‘When do I get to eat the Spider-Man?'”
