The Venom movie might be one of the most anticipated comic book movies of this year. But what concerned many fans was Spider-Man would not be showing up in the film. In fact, many believed that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man would be completely separate from Sony’s movies featuring Spider-Man villains and characters like Venom, Black Cat, Silver Sable, and more.
However, that might not be the case after all. Jon Schnepp appeared on Collider Movie Talk to report that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man will play a role in the Venom movie starring Tom Hardy.
The discussion begins around the 2 minute mark and continues to around the 7 minute mark.
Schnepp declared, “I’m gonna say it right here on this show, Spider-Man is gonna be in Venom.” He elaborated, “For the last couple months, we’ve been talking about Venom, we’ve been hearing about how Sony’s keeping it all separated. Spider-Man’s in the Marvel Cinematic Universe but every other character that’s in the Spider-Man universe is separate.”
He wasn’t done there. He hinted that Holland’s Spider-Man might actually play a larger role than just a cameo.
“Like a cameo, like a who-knows-what-eo. All I’m sayin’ is Spider-Man, and I’m talkin’ about Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, is gonna be in Venom.”
He goes on to say, “It only makes sense for them to have Spider-Man in the Sony movies like Black Cat, Venom, any of the Sinister Six, anything they end up doing…They can definitely reference Peter Parker and Spider-Man.”
He then reiterated, “I’m just gong to stick to my guns and Spider-Man will be in Venom.”
While he was coy about how he would appear in the film earlier he actually did provide some details later on, “I’m guessing, this is all speculation. I’m guessing that it’s probably a cameo. Like it could be a walk on or a walk by or a brush by like ‘watch it buddy’ kind of a scene. But it’s probably a little bit more extensive than that. He’s definitely not a central part of the movie or the plot. But he will be introduced and Peter Parker and the Spider-Man universe is definitely a part of the Venom universe and will be expanded on if Venom is successful…Venom 3 is probably when you see them throw down.”
It definitely would make sense for Spider-Man to at least cameo in the film especially given the comic book storylines they plan to adapt.
Do you want to see Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in Venom or would you like to see Venom go it on his own in his first solo film?
