Marvel and Sony have been in a little bit of a back-and-forth these days, primarily over the latter’s plans to launch a new comic book movie franchise based mostly off of Spider-Man anti-villain Venom. (The considering, presumably, being that whereas Sony gave Peter Parker again to Marvel in order that he may mess around within the MCU, there’s no motive for his related characters to molder on the shelf.) At first, Marvel made it fairly clear: There was no likelihood of seeing Tom Holland swing by to duke it out with Tom Hardy’s Venom. However then, former Sony head—and present Spider-Man: Homecoming producer—Amy Pascal propped that slammed door again open, saying that Venom (and the Silver Sable/Black Cat movie being developed down the road) will probably be “adjuncts” to Homecoming, and that there’s at all times the potential for Spidey swinging by.
Pascal gave that interview whereas sitting subsequent to Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, who, in hindsight, seems to have been giving her the expression you give somebody if you would dearly like them to cease speaking, and probably complicating your very delicate lattice-work of multi-million greenback movies.
Therefore, presumably, why Feige made it very, very clear on the Homecoming premiere final evening: No Spider-Man in Venom, interval. “No,” he mentioned flatly, earlier than including, “I feel the oldsters there are making a fantastic Venom film and I don’t know a lot about it, however I do know they’re off to begin with Tom Hardy.” As an alternative, as previously reported, Venom will face off towards his monstrous serial killer youngster, Carnage, in what we will solely assume will probably be an absolute explosion of pink and black CGI.
