Tom Holland’s Spider-Man was originally part of Venom: Let There Be Carnage’s story according to director Andy Serkis. Sony has had any desires for making a Spider-Man cinematic universe for quite a long time, and 2018’s Venom ended up being the launching point the studio was looking for. It announced plans for a spin-off and other movies starring Spider-Man villains like Morbius and Kraven the Hunter. All through the early stages of Sony’s Spider-Man Universe, the greatest question that has lingered over it is whether or not Tom Holland’s Spider-Man from the Marvel Cinematic Universe will hybrid.
Venom 2 director Andy Serkis addressed THR in spoilery-detail about his Marvel movie, and this included him being asked about the movie’s game-changing final tease. It was during the interview that Serkis mentioned that the Venom: Let There Be Carnage post-credits scene was in transition all through improvement and production. He even revealed that there was a point when Tom Holland’s Spider-Man was meant to appear in Venom 2 in some capacity.
[The mid-credits scene was] 100% in transition, yeah. It couldn’t have been more in transition y in the event that you attempted. Yeah, obviously, it was something that they talked about from before I even came on to the movie. There were minutes where he [Spider-Man] was going to be in the story, potentially, and then he wasn’t. In any case, no, we concluded that we wanted to really examine the Venom-refrain first. So as we were going through principal photography, the inevitable discussions had to be had, however it wasn’t until incredibly, late on that we reached the exact notion of the teaser that we wanted to lay in there.
Serkis doesn’t give any explanation to why Spider-Man doesn’t appear in Venom 2’s story, however there are many factors to consider. Disney and Sony had severed talks to continue sharing Spider-Man during Venom 2’s turn of events, so Sony may have moved rapidly to find a way to bring Spider-Man into the story. In any case, those plans could’ve been changed again once Spider-Man rejoined the MCU. Regardless of whether Sony wanted Tom Holland’s Spider-Man to appear in Venom 2, that probably won’t have been conceivable because of Phase 4’s timetable and the plan for Spider-Man: No Way Home. While Venom: Let There Be Carnage didn’t ultimately convey a meeting between Spider-Man and Venom, that is by all accounts close to the corner now.
