Marvel Fans seemed to have quietened down ever since the riff-raft between Disney and Sony. Fans still wish they can get a Spider-man and Venom crossover. It seems like Sony too had the same intentions while shooting Venom (2018). Even before the two companies parted ways, it was rumoured that the characters could coincide in a film outside of Marvel’s purview. Given Sony’s insistence on making this union happen between the two competing forces, it makes sense why they tried to get Holland to pop up in Venom’s origin story. So this isn’t the first time that rumours suggest Sony wished Venom could be a part of the MCU.
The Real reason why Spider-Man wasn’t in Venom
On a recent Collider podcast, the panel discusses a Tom Holland cameo that was reportedly shot for Venom. There were strong rumours at that time with seemingly reliable sources stating that Spiderman would be among the students on a field trip to the Life Foundation. This was indeed the plan. Tom Holland is said to have shot this cameo. But Disney and MCU didn’t want the two franchises to be linked. So they shunted the idea before it could make the final cut.
You can’t blame Disney for not wanting Holland to make a cameo in Venom, but now that Spider-Man is a wanted criminal after his identity was outed by Mysterio, there’s a good chance a “Lethal Protector” like Eddie Brock could head to New York City looking to take down Peter Parker.
Now that the companies have parted, this crossover could be possible. Sony seems intent on Holland and Hardy sharing the screen in some capacity. Given that Venom was a box office hit in 2018, this gives them the perfect opportunity to pursue whatever plan they have to proceed with.
Upcoming Spider-Man movies
On asking Tom Holland about the next upcoming Spider-Man movie he said that it has a deep connection to him just like the previous Spider-Man movies. “The films have kind of like mirrored my life in a really, really weird and deep way,” Holland said at Keystone Comic Con, “The first film was about me wanting to step up and become an Avenger, and then that happened, it came out, and my life changed. My life totally changed.”
He continued, “You know, being famous and growing up in the spotlight is kind of tough, and comes with its own set of challenges,” Holland continued. “So in the second film, ‘I don’t know if this is who I want to be,’ and then by the end, I was like, ‘I’ve found where I belong,’ which is here with all you guys.”
“It’s interesting, in the third film… I don’t want to talk too much about what it will be about,” Holland concluded. “There’s another deep connection to the next one for me which will be really cool to bring to life.”
Despite what fans might think, the studio believes it can crank out crowd-pleasing Spider-Man instalments without the help of Marvel. Whether or not this will actually happen, the future of Spider-Man remains to be seen.
