Earlier this week, some surprising news was revealed, as it was said that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man would be in the upcoming Venom movie. Apparently, though, that’s not the case – according to the same guy that broke this initial scoop. Tom Holland will in fact be in the movie, but as Peter Parker.
According to Jon Schnepp of Collider Movie Talk:
“Tom Holland was on set filming scenes on Venom for at least two days as Peter Parker. I’m not saying Spider-Man is in the film. When I say Tom Holland’s Spider-Man is in the film, I’m saying Peter Parker is in the film.”
“All I’m saying is that Spider-Man — and I’m talking about Tom Holland’s Spider-Man — is going to be in Venom.”
“No,” he started when asked about Tom Holland’s Spider-Man making an appearance. “No, I think they’re focusing on making a great Venom movie, and I don’t know much about it, but I know they’re off to a good start with Tom Hardy.”
About Venom in the MCU, he said:
“For now, there is NO plan for Venom in the MCU. It’s a Sony Project.”
Whatever is going on is definitely a surprise to most Marvel fans. Many thought that we wouldn’t see Spider-Man/Peter Parker in a Venom movie, and now we most likely will. It’s also worth pointing out that whatever they’ve filmed for the movie might just be a deleted scene. We’ll know everything for certain once Venom hits theaters on October 5th.
