The Venom Movie franchise is alive and well with a sequel titled Venom: Let There Be Carnage scheduled for a 2021 release. Tom Hardy will reprise his role and it’s been rumored that Tom Holland will make an appearance as Spider-Man, too. Hardy might have even spilled the beans with this a bit early with his Instagram post, which he later deleted.
Obviously, the studio has yet to confirm whether or not Peter Parker will be swinging by, but sources close to WGTC – the same ones who stated Ahsoka Tano would maintain The Mandalorian year two and Taskmaster will be the principal villain in Black Widow – inform us that Spidey does indeed have a cameo and it comes from the post-credits scene. The stinger will see Venom falling in the process and being twisted towards a darker path, turning bad under the sway of Carnage. The reddish Symbiote informs him that he had been born to kill and eat people and will influence Venom. When he sees Spidey appear throughout the post-credits scene on the news, he’ll decide to go after him.
This will lead to a confrontation between the two, and we envision it won’t be long while we don’t know when that will happen. After all, Sony has a vested interest in getting their ridiculously-named cinematic world, Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Charactersoff the ground, as the company has spent a great deal of money into building a character roster that contains Venom, Morbius, Carnage, and Spider-Man.
The end aim might be to eventually release a Sinister Six picture in which the web-head would be made to go toe-to-toe with his greatest foes in a ferocious battle royal. Fans are already convinced that this may be coming sooner rather than later, after Michael Keaton showed up as his MCU character, Adrian Toomes aka the Vulture, in the Morbius trailer.
We might even get to see Spider-Man in the black suit at some stage when the crossover with Venom contributes to Peter bonding together with the Symbiote. We’ve seen that saga perform once in the first Spider-Man cinematic trilogy, clearly, but the implementation was rather unsatisfactory. So, should they attempt it, let’s hope they get it right this time round.
