Tom Holland cameo rumored for ‘Venom’ with Tom Hardy

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that Sony will try to capitalize on Tom Holland’s success at playing Peter Parker/Spider-Man and with production currently underway on Sony’s Venom movie starring Tom Hardy, we have some news.

After initial reports that Holland’s Spidey is part of the MCU and not part of Sony’s, Jon Schnepp said he heard a very different story and that Holland’s Spider-Man will in fact be in Venom.

“Spider-Man is going to be in Venom,” he stated during an interview on  Movie Talk. “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.”

Holland along with producers Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal both said that Spider-Man wouldn’t appear in Venom, and that it wouldn’t even be a cameo role.

Collider summarizes an interesting perspective: “Think of all the complications that arise once you say Spider-Man and Venom exist in the same universe. For starters, Venom is going to be Rated-R, so now Disney has the Spider-Man character appearing in an R-rated movie. Secondly, every future MCU movie featuring Spider-Man now carries the burden of, “Where’s Venom?” So now you’re saddling your future Spider-Man movies with Venom stuff even though Feige and Co. aren’t involved with the making of those Venom movies.”

Hardy plays Eddie Brock, who is consumed by the alien symboiote. Riz Ahmed (Jason Bourne, Rogue One) has already been confirmed as Carlton Drake, and his company has been reinvented as a pharmaceutical firm that’s conducting illegal tests. It seems likely that Brock will cause problems for Ahmed, and become an unwilling participant in Drake’s experiments.

Venom arrives in theaters October 5, 2018.
