Last year to everyone’s surprise, Sony announced that they would be producing a Venom movie. For those unfamiliar, Venom is probably one of Spider-Man’s more notable villains, although he also does play the role of an anti-hero at times. No doubt this got everyone excited, but oddly enough there were reports claiming Spider-Man wouldn’t be in it.
The good news is that the rumors could be wrong because according to insider Jon Schnepp, he claims that Spider-Man will be making an appearance in the Venom movie, and will have more than just a cameo role. This was revealed during Schnepp’s appearance on the latest episode of Collider Movie Talk (via Comicbook.com).
Schnepp was quoted as saying, “I’m gonna say it right here on this show, Spider-Man is gonna be in Venom. For the last couple months, we’ve been talking about Venom, we’ve been hearing about how Sony’s keeping it all separated. Spider-Man’s in the Marvel Cinematic Universe but every other character that’s in the Spider-Man universe is separate.”
He adds, “Like a cameo, like a who-knows-what-eo. All I’m sayin’ is Spider-Man, and I’m talkin’ about Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, is gonna be in Venom.” Sony’s Venom movie is currently slated for a release on the 5th of October, 2018 which will star Tom Hardy in the role as Eddie Brock/Venom.
