Tom Holland went from being out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to back-in it after pleas from fans and stars alike. Now, a new report has surfaced that may confuse fans but don’t worry, we are here to help.
According to Geeks WorldWide, Tom Holland is in very early talks for a cameo role as Spider-Man in Sony’s upcoming Venom sequel which is currently in production.
It should be noted that as of now a deal has not been made and since this would only be a cameo this could easily fall apart and Holland is not in the movie altogether or even be shot and cut during post-production.
If this does indeed go through that could mean one of two things. First Sony has allowed Venom to become apart of the Marvel cinematic universe, which means characters such as Venom, Carnage, and Riot are at Marvel Studio’s disposal. The factor that is possible is that Spider-Man isn’t the same Spider-Man since Marvel Studios is not producing this movie, as Venom as of now is not apart of the MCU and is in its own separate cinematic universe that includes Venom, Morbius, Black Cat, and Silver Sable.
Back in September, when a new deal was made to get Spider-Man back in the MCU, Chief Creative Officer Kevin Feige stated:
“Spider-Man is a powerful icon and hero whose story crosses all ages and audiences around the globe. He also happens to be the only hero with the superpower to cross cinematic universes, so as Sony continues to develop their own Spidey-verse you never know what surprises the future might hold.”
Until a deal is done and officially announced it’s basically a waiting game until the film comes out.
Directed by Andy Serkis (Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle) and written by Kelly Marcel (Saving Mr. Banks), the Venom sequel is set to star Tom Hardy (The Revenant) who reprises his roles of both Eddie Brock and the titular character Venom. Michelle Williams (Manchester by the Sea) and Woody Harrelson (Zombieland: Double Tap) are both coming back as well, for Anne Weying and Cletus Kasady/Carnage respectively. Naomie Harris (Moonlight) will play Shriek, the sonic-powered accomplice and romantic interest of Carnage. Stephen Graham (The Irishman) is also onboard the project, in an unknown role.
The currently untitled Venom sequel is set to hit theaters on October 2, 2020.
