Venom director Ruben Fleischer opened up about what a hypothetical Spider-Man crossover could look like.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage ended with Eddie Brock and his trusty symbiote ending up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe thanks to Doctor Strange’s disastrous spell from Spider-Man: No Way Home. The Tom Holland threequel later expanded on this crossover by having Eddie stuck in Mexico as he learns about the many happenings of the MCU.
Both Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios have expressed interest in seeing Venom and Spider-Man eventually crossover. Whether that crossover is a versus film or a team-up remains to be seen. Nothing is set in stone for both iconic characters, and it’s unclear who would helm the hypothetical cinematic event of the century.
Jon Watts, the director behind the Spider-Man trilogy at Marvel Studios would be a worthy contender, though he’s off to direct Fantastic Four for the company. Venom: Let There Be Carnage director Andy Serkis has expressed interest in the position. As for original Venom helmer Ruben Fleischer? Well, he’s not sure if he’d direct the film, but he did briefly discuss what the film could look like in an interview with Cinema Blend to discuss Uncharted.
“We’ll have to see. I mean, it would be honestly a dream come true to have those two worlds converge. It’ll be a formidable battle between those two characters, so…whether or not I direct it, I’ll certainly be excited to see it.”
Tom Hardy’s Venom last appeared in Spider-Man: No Way Home:
“For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero’s identity is revealed, bringing his Super Hero responsibilities into conflict with his normal life and putting those he cares about most at risk. When he enlists Doctor Strange’s help to restore his secret, the spell tears a hole in their world, releasing the most powerful villains who’ve ever fought a Spider-Man in any universe. Now, Peter will have to overcome his greatest challenge yet, which will not only forever alter his own future but the future of the Multiverse.”
Directed by Jon Watts from a script written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, Marvel’s No Way Home stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori, Martin Starr, J.B. Smoove, Marisa Tomei, Jon Favreau, Benedict Wong, Benedict Cumberbatch, Willem Dafoe, Alfred Molina, and Jamie Foxx, with Andrew Garfield, Tobey Maguire, and Tom Hardy.
