In a new meeting, Tom Hardy said he “would do anything” to make a Venom and Spider-Man crossover film happen. Tom Hardy’s first Venom film in 2018 saw Eddie Brock become host to the alien symbiote, Venom, and battle with his recently discovered forces. He eventually faces off against – and defeats – Riot, an evil symbiote that had reinforced with Dr. Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed). A Venom post-credit scene presented Eddie Brock (Hardy) to Cletus Kassady (Woody Harrelson), who promises to escape and unleash “carnage,” setting up the film’s sequel, the long awaited Venom: Let There Be Carnage.
In a new meeting with Esquire, Hardy examined his forthcoming film, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, and contacted momentarily on the eventual fate of Venom, remembering his stance for a future hybrid film among Venom and Spider-Man. Although perceiving several business obstacles in the way, Hardy appears to be truly amped up for the chance to potentially appear in the MCU alongside Spider-Man. Regarding the chance, Hardy stated:
In the event that the legal obstacles were to be sorted out, in any case, a hybrid between Hardy’s Venom and Holland’s Spider-Man, whenever done right, could make up for the disappointment many fans felt at the Spider-Man and Venom storyline in Spider-Man 3. Chief Sam Raimi himself has gone on record saying that he didn’t want Venom in Spider-Man 3 and was essentially forced to incorporate the villain by the studio. On the off chance that a Venom and Spider-Man hybrid were to be worked from the beginning with Hardy and Holland, the two actors generally preferred by audiences in the current iterations of their separate characters, it’s possible the film would fare far better.
