As you might have heard, later this year Sony will be launching the Venom movie. Now we have seen many comic superhero mashups and crossovers in the past, but if there is one crossover that Todd McFarlane would like to see, it would be one between Venom and Spawn, for those who are unfamiliar will be getting its own movie as well.


Speaking to CBR, McFarlane was asked how he would have approached creating the Venom movie, in which he then brought up the idea of a crossover between Venom and Spawn. He was quoted as saying, “Here’s a big “What If.” What if Sony distributes Spawn? Then is it possible that in the future Sony could have a crossover with Venom and Spawn? It’s possible. So, I will be presenting that possibility to the Sony executives when we get ready.”

Just in case you’re wondering why would McFarlane be so invested in Venom, it is because he was one of the artists that helped to create the character. According to McFarlane, “My conversation with them would be, why wouldn’t you? Here’s what I know. Let’s say Venom is huge — I hope it is — then no matter who distributes Spawn, the first thing you will see in every trailer will be, ‘From the co-creator of Venom.’”

That being said, it is unclear if this will actually happen or if it will even work out, so for now we’ll just have to keep our eyes peeled. In the meantime many are already wondering how Venom will fit into the current iteration of Spider-Man, so we can’t imagine what it would be like if Spawn was thrown into the mix.
