When we first learned that Sony was developing a Venom movie, we all wondered if Tom Holland’s Spider-Man would make an appearance or at the very least, swing past in the background. For a while, it seemed like the Venom movie would stay separate from Holland’s Spidey and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but a new rumour suggests that we might see the web-slinger in Sony’s first spin-off film.
Jon Schnepp recently appeared on Collider Movie Talk, where he revealed that a few of his “little birds” have told him that Spider-Man, played by Tom Holland, will appear alongside Tom Hardy’s villain/anti-hero in the upcoming Venom film.
See what Schnepp said below:
“Spider-Man is going to be in Venom. For the last couple of months, we’ve been hearing how Sony is keeping it all separated, and Spider-Man is in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but every other character that’s in the Spider-Man universe is separate. All I’m saying is that Spider-Man—and I’m talking about Tom Holland’s Spider-Man—is going to be in Venom.”
This is an exciting rumour for any Marvel/Spider-Man fan, but it’s important to note that this is an unconfirmed report and should be taken with an endless grain of salt. It’s possible (and likely) that Tom Holland won’t appear in the Venom film and while it would be incredible to see Hardy and Holland in a movie together, it doesn’t necessarily make sense for the characters and the different universes that Marvel and Sony are creating.
