Todd McFarlane revealed that he’s open to a crossover with Spawn, Venom, and Spider-Man.
Fans of comic books have been imagining crossovers with comic book characters from separate publishers ever since the medium was born. One of the frequently proposed crossovers among fans is a meeting between Spider-Man and two characters created by Todd McFarlane — Spawn and Venom.
During an interview with ComicBook.com, Todd McFarlane revealed that he’s open to the idea of a Spider-Man, Spawn, and Venom crossover. While it may not be legally possible, Todd McFarlane noted that he’s considering how the comic book industry might have to turn to an event story in the future:
“To me, I’m way more concerned about how it has any lasting effect, but, comma but, with where we stand today and not knowing what’s going to happen on the other side of normality and what that even looks like in terms of the comic book industry, then I’ve been sort of asking myself, are we going to need some event book or things on the other side, not just one or not just two, I think we’re going to need a steady drum of them…”
Todd McFarlane noted that he’s never had a reason for a Venom, Spider-Man, and Spawn crossover but added that such an event might help stabilize the comic book industry:
“Something as crazy as a Spawn-Spidey [Venom] be, I don’t know, maybe. I never really had a compelling reason to it, but you know, if part of it is that it helps a little bit in the stability of our industry, then maybe I should go back to doing manual labor and do my part. We should all be good soldiers somewhere along the line. So, yeah. We’ll see where it all goes.”
Todd McFarlane has been developing a Spawn reboot with hopes of involving Blumhouse Productions. However, the reboot, which would have starred Jamie Foxx and Jeremy Renner, has had a hard time getting off the ground.
Meanwhile, Sony is currently set to release Venom: Let There Be Carnage next summer as the third project in its Universe of Marvel Characters film series. The studio is also set to co-produce a third Spider-Man film with Marvel Studios.
In the meantime, fans can re-watch the wall-crawler’s most recent film, Far From Home, on all home media formats:
Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man must step up to take on new threats in a world that has changed forever.
Directed by Jon Watts from a script written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, Far From Home stars Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori, Martin Starr, Numan Acar, J.B. Smoove, Oli Hill, Remy Hii, Marisa Tomei, Michael Keaton, Jon Favreau, Cobie Smulders, and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury.
