Venom director Reuben Fleischer addresses where the future lies for Tom Holland’s Spider-Man going up against Tom Hardy’s Venom in a future movie.
Fleischer, who is currently promoting his Zombieland: Double Tap, was asked if Holland’s Spider-Man will ever come face to face with Venom or if he had plans for such a moment with his film. While Andy Serkis has stepped in to direct the Venom sequel, Fleischer admits that he expects to see Holland and Hardy on the screen together as their respective Marvel characters.
“That’s where it’s all going to lead,” Fleischer told Fandom. “And that’s the exciting thing, because we changed the origin of Venom … in the comics, he evolved from Spider-Man but because of the Marvel-Sony thing we weren’t able to that. And so the thing I think it’s building towards, and will be exciting to see, is when they actually do confront each other.”
Whether this crossover will take place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is unknown but it seems more likely that the Madame Webb film in development at Sony could pull Hollland’s version of the character into a Spider-Verse which will operate separately.
