There’s news in this piece. It’s sort of important to the whole thing going on this past week about Venom and Spider-Man. however, there are a lot of opinions here too. Enjoy!
Last year, people flocked to theaters to see Venom and thought to themselves “boy, it’d be just swell to see this Venom meet the current Spider-Man in a sequel or Avengers film.” Those people are wrong! Okay, that’s a bit harsh and I apologize, but I really don’t think Tom Holland’s Web-Head is compatible with Tom hardy’s Venom. Additionally, I think there’s a huge problem getting the character’s inevitable conflict right without having Spidey reject the symbiote. A fan had a conversation with me where they said they could just go with the idea Venom wants to be more violent in his good deeds while Spider-Man doesn’t. That’s too superficial to me and takes away from what made Eddie, Peter, and Venom’s relationship so interesting.
Over the last couple of weeks, there has been a lot of talk about getting the two characters together. Marvel Studios mastermind Kevin Feige recently stated that he thought the meeting would eventually happen but that was on Sony and not Marvel. Many took those comments as meaning Venom would make his way to the MCU, but in reality, it sounds like Spider-Man would appear in a Sony film separate from the MCU. LRM Editor-in-Chief Joseph jammer Medina and I discussed this in depth on an episode of LRMornings this past week. Check out our theories HERE.
Now Sony producer Amy Pascal is getting into the discussion and adding further confusion as to what the hell is going on in the Spider-Verse. speaking with ScreenRant she discussed how important it is for these films to stand on their own but how limitless possibilities are:
“The most important thing is that each of these movies can stand on their own. So I think the first thing for us to think about is: Venom has to stand on its own, Far From Home has to stand on its own, Spider-Verse has to stand on its own. They all have to be great movies themselves. And then the possibilities are endless.”
SEE?!? Look, I don’t think we’ll ever see Venom or Carnage in the MCU, which sucks, but there are many ways Sony can put Spider-Man into their films and still let him exist in the MCU. All I want is for Disney to shell out whatever amount of money it takes to get all of Spider-Man’s characters and rights back. Almost every villain in Spidey’s rogues’ gallery is what they are because of Spider-Man. Having them exist in a world where he had no influence takes a lot away from their character. What the hell is Kraven going to be doing without Spider-Man? Morbius is just going to be a vampire film without Spider-Man. Venom is capable of standing on his own but can’t exist with Spidey without having first been rejected by the Wall Crawler. I know, I know… they’re just movies…
How do you think Spidey and Venom will end up in the same film? Do you want it to be on the Marvel side or the Sony side? let us know in the comments below!
