Audiences may one day see the two Toms, Holland and Hardy, come face to face in a Venom versus Spider-Man movie, said Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios. In a recent interview, Feige commented on the idea of the worlds of Sony and Marvel colliding, simply by saying he “wouldn’t rule out anything” about a potential crossover.
“I don’t want to talk about rumors or speculation about what might or might not happen when it comes to characters Marvel Studios has not yet brought to the screen, but I’ll say what I’ve always said when I was at Marvel Studios. for 20 years, I wouldn’t reject anything. I wouldn’t rule anything out.”
While his comments are far from confirming everything, the fact that… Kevin Feige rule out nothing is exciting enough, and Venom can certainly only be kept away from Spider Man for so long. Feige went on to say that many of the rumors fans have seen online could be things that will eventually happen.
“When and how and where remains to be seen. Any rumor you read online could happen anytime between tomorrow and never.”
In fact, Kevin Feige’s comments go very well with recent comments from Sony Motion Picture Group President, Sanford Panitch, who even suggested that there is already a plan for venom and Spider Man meet on the big screen. “There’s actually a plan. I think maybe now it’s getting a little clearer for people where we’re going and I’m thinking when No way home coming, more will be revealed,” Panitch revealed. “The great thing is we have an excellent relationship with Kevin. There is an incredible sandbox there to play with. We want those MCU movies to be absolutely huge because that’s great for us and our Marvel characters, and I think it’s the same on their part. But we have a great relationship. There are a lot of opportunities, I think, that are going to happen.”
Although little is currently known about certain elements of the plot of plot Spider-Man: No Way Home, we know that Benedict Cumberbatch will return as The Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange, and that he will join Tom Holland’s Peter Parker on his final adventure. The character is set to take on the mentor role previously held by Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark, and it looks like the film will increasingly see a sequel to the upcoming Doctor Strange sequel. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madnessand throwing Peter Parker and his comrades into the multiverse. Opening the MCU to the multiverse would certainly be the easiest way to bring Tom Hardy’s venom in battle.
For now, Venom has more than enough to deal with. Upcoming sequel Venom: Let There Be Carnage finds Tom Hardy in the role of Eddie Brock, an investigative reporter who hosts an alien symbiote who gives him a violent alter-ego: venom, also played by Hardy. Starting a year after the first film, Eddie Brock struggles to adjust to life as the host of the alien symbiote, Venom, who grants him superhuman abilities to be a deadly vigilante. Brock tries to revive his career by interviewing serial killer Cletus Kasady, who becomes the host of the symbiote Carnage and escapes from prison after a botched execution.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage is slated for a theatrical release on September 24, 2021 with Spider-Man: No Way Home web-slinging in theaters on December 17, 2021.
