Venom: Let There Be Carnage director Andy Serkis reveals the movie almost included Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in the film’s main story.
Warning: Major SPOILERS ahead for Venom: Let There Be Carnage
Tom Holland’s Spider-Man was originally part of Venom: Let There Be Carnage‘s story according to director Andy Serkis. Sony has had hopes of making a Spider-Man cinematic universe for years, and 2018’s Venom proved to be the launching point the studio was looking for. It announced plans for a sequel and other films starring Spider-Man villains like Morbius and Kraven the Hunter. Throughout the early stages of Sony’s Spider-Man Universe, the biggest question that has lingered over it is whether or not Tom Holland’s Spider-Man from the Marvel Cinematic Universe will crossover.
Thanks to the deal between Marvel Studios and Sony to share Spider-Man, Holland’s wall-crawler has been in five MCU movies already. His sixth appearance is coming soon when Spider-Man: No Way Home hits theaters, but rumors previously swirled that he’d be in Venom or the sequel. Venom: Let There Be Carnage is now out in theaters and performing very well at the box office, and much of the hype has come from the film’s post-credits scene. It is during Venom 2‘s post-credits that Tom Hardy’s Venom jumps to the MCU and sees Tom Holland’s Spider-Man. This tease of them meeting is all that the movie can offer, but it could’ve happened in Venom: Let There Be Carnage at one point.
