Many fans have been wondering how a Venom movie will work without Spider-Man in it. Though rumors of Tom Holland’s character making a cameo appearance have surfaced, nothing on that has been confirmed. When Venom’s director, Ruben Fleischer, was asked about that possibility, he gave a very vague response.
While speaking to Empire, the director said:
“This feels very much like Venom‘s movie. It’s the introduction of the character. As to where it will go in future movies, and who he’ll run across, I can’t say.”
That sounds about like what most of us were probably expecting, as Spider-Man is currently in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it isn’t exactly a dark version of the character. Still, though, it’ll be weird to see a Venom movie without Spider-Man, but we’re hoping they have something up their sleeves. It’s Sony, so we’ll be surprised if they do.
When Sony’s Amy Pascal spoke about this last year, she said:
“Both movies will all take place in the world that we’re now creating for Peter Parker. I mean, they’ll be adjuncts to it, there may be different locations, but it will still all be in the same world and they will be connected to each other.”
That sounds like it could get pretty confusing – but here we are, regardless.
Venom hits theaters everywhere on October 5th.
