Tom Holland's Spider-Man is Rumored to Appear in VENOM
I've got a big rumor here regarding Tom Hardy's Venom. If the rumor is true, then maybe Sony Picture's Spider-verse is going to be connected to the MCU after all.
The rumor originated from comic book movie scooper Jon Schnepp on a recent episode of Collider Movie Talk. While on the show he told said that Tom Holland's Spider-Man is going to make an appearance in Venom. He says:
"I'm gonna say it right here on this show, Spider-Man is gonna be in Venom. 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."
This is just a big fat rumor right now, and I'd personally take it with a grain of salt. I hope it's true! But there's no official confirmation of this. We've heard time and time again that this wouldn't be the case, but maybe that is just to throw everyone off the scent of what is actually happening. It wouldn't be the first time Marvel has done that to fake us out.
Schnepp was then asked if the appearance of Spider-Man might be a cameo, but he teased that it might be more than that, saying:
"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."
So, that's interesting and should give the fans something to talk about! One thing he couldn't answer was if Spider-Man would be in the actual film or if it would be in a post-credits scene. We'll just have to wait and see if this rumor turns out to be true or not!
Are you happy to hear that there's a possibility Holland's Spider-Man will show up in the movie? If he is, I'm not sure how that would work. There's a long history with these characters and so much happened between them before Eddie Brock goes to San Fransisco. So, to gloss over that history might not sit well with fans. How do you think Spider-Man could fit into the film?
Venom is being directed by Ruben Fleischer and also stars Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Jenny Slate and Woody Harrelson. It's set to hit theaters on October 5th.
