While Venom joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe remains in question, the director of Spider-Man: Far From Home thinks that a crossover could work.
While speaking to Comicbookmovie.com, Spider-Man: Far From Home director Jon Watts addressed the possibility of a Venom crossover. While he didn’t confirm that a Venom crossover was happening, the Spider-Man director seemed very enthusiastic about the idea. According to Watts, he found Venom to be funny and doesn’t seem to think the franchises are all that different. He then went on to say that if you put Tom Holland and Tom Hardy together in Venom/Spider-Man film you would end up with something special:
I found Venom to be so funny and I thought Tom Hardy was so great, I don’t know that they are so different. I think you put those two Toms together and you’re going to see something pretty special.

From the sound of things, the Spider-Man: Far From Home director is hopeful that such a Venom/Spider-Man film may happen! But, as Kevin Feige said, if a Venom crossover is to happen, it’s up to Sony!

5 Things Marvel Studios Will Likely Bring To Hall H At Comic-Con 2019
Following this year's Avengers: Endgame, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is going to be quite different moving forward and we've yet to really get any official details about what's next. And you know what time of year it is? We're quickly approaching the biggest geek event of the year, San Diego Comic-Con. And while it hasn't been confirmed that Marvel Studios will have a presence there, it would be very surprising to see the studio not make their mark in Hall H this summer.
Seriously. It would be weird if Marvel Studios didn't show up two years in a row. In the meantime though, while you wait to see if you're going to be spending your night on the cold concrete waiting to get into that panel, we've got a few ideas about what Marvel Studios might bring along with them if they do return to Hall H. (Which has all but been officially 100% confirmed at this point. They're coming guys.)
A First Look At Black Widow Solo Film
While Marvel Studios hasn't officially announced anything when it comes to the upcoming Black Widow solo film, it's pretty much well known at this point especially since it has already started filming. And with that being the studio's first release after Phase Three, it's a safe bet that Marvel will be giving it a big push at this year's San Diego Comic-Con. And even though the film will only have less than two months of filming done around that time, that really hasn't been an issue for Marvel Studios in the past. The studio has brought fans in Hall H first looks at films that hadn't been filming for too long in the past such as back in 2013 when they gave Hall H a sneak peek at the James Gunn-directed Guardians Of The Galaxy, which had only been filming for a few weeks at that point.
The Eternals Cast
It's currently being reported that Richard Madden (Game Of Thrones), Angelina Jolie (Wanted), Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley) and Ma Dong-Seok (Train To Busan) have all joined the cast of Chloé Zhao's The Eternals. However, at the moment, the studio has yet to confirm anything about the film other than it's happening. With cameras getting ready to start rolling on the film later this year, there's a very good chance that we will learn the full cast of the ensemble film during their presentation at San Diego Comic-Con with most if not all of them being in attendance.
A Film Slate... Of Sorts
Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige recently revealed that the studio had a "five-year plan" for their next Phase of films. We know that the plan includes Black Widow, The Eternals, Shang-Chi, Black Panther 2, Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 and will likely feature sequels for both Doctor Strange and Captain Marvel as well. Will that plan be revealed at San Diego Comic-Con? It seems very likely. Will it include some news about the Fantastic Four or Silver Surfer? That seems like a real possibility. How about the X-Men? Absolutely not. Please stop asking. Seriously. Just give it some time, okay? And while they will likely announce a slate, it isn't likely that they will announce everything they've got on deck. Not yet at least.
News About Marvel Studios' Upcoming Disney+ Shows
Though it's more likely that we will learn more about these at D23 the following month, there's still a very good chance Marvel Studios might give us some information about their upcoming Disney+ projects at Comic-Con. It has been confirmed by the studio that three series will be coming to the streaming service but for the most part, details have remained under wraps about them. With Loki, WandaVision (Yeah... that's a bad title.) and Falcon And The Winter Soldier getting ready to head into production soon though, we should start learning about them soon and it wouldn't be too surprising if Comic-Con is when Marvel Studio decides to make their big splash.
Though it's very likely that Marvel Studios will be announcing the cast for the upcoming The Eternals, that might not be the only casting announcement that will drop in Hall H. Beyond the film being written by David Callaham and directed by Shot Term 12 helmer Destin Daniel Cretton, there isn't a lot known about the project. That includes who will star as the titular character. While we haven't heard any names floating around, there's every chance that they've already got someone on board or will at that time and plan to make the big announcement at San Diego Comic-Con similar to how they revealed Brie Larson would be suiting up as Captain Marvel at the end of their 2016 panel.
