Sony, or Marvel wants Tom Hardy’s Venom in Spider-Man 3. It’s the rumor I have feared and here it is. With all the talk lately about Spider-Man and the MCU Multiverse we did not know what to expect. My one fear was bringing in Tom Hardy’s Venom and linking Sony’s movies in to the MCU proper. However, it has been looking like this for some time, so I was deluding myself to think otherwise.
Anyway, this is just a rumor, and even the source Daniel Richtman says there are no real talks yet. However he does say he’s heard there is a ‘general interest’ from Sony, Marvel, or both to have Tom Hardy show up, even if just for a cameo. One presumes Tom Hardy would be up for it? He keeps teasing and then deleting social media posts with Venom and Spider-Man. However, I for one do not want to see this happen.
I refuse to watch Venom, but just so I’m not a complete hypocrite I did read the script for it. It’s trash, and the vast majority of people I know who did watch it told me it was no different from the script I read. Could Sony not just scrap the VenomVerse if this is the case and allow Tom Hardy to become Venom in the MCU properly? I know, it’s a silly thing to even say. The lack of Spider-Man in Venom’s origin is the part that really get’s my hairs up. To find out more about what my fears are with Sony entering the MCU, check out the related link below.
As for whether a small cameo really would annoy me that much, no. However, it is what comes next I worry about. Sony getting to do whatever they want with their own properties and have the casual fans believe it’s MCU. That’s always been Sony’s end game and I worry that having Spider-Man in the MCU isn’t a good enough of a trade-off for that. Fans in the know like us can just choose not to watch Sony’s output if it’s trash. What I worry about is the casual fans thinking the MCU has gotten a lot worse because they won’t know the difference between the two.
