Spider-Man is one of the most iconic superheroes in the world, even considered one of the ‘Big Three’ when it comes to the most popular superhero around. So it’s natural that such an iconic identity would have to have a couple of well-renowned adversaries to battle it out. And among the plethora of big baddies that Spider-Man has to fight on a daily to keep his friendly neighborhood of Queens and New York City safe, there is this one particular abomination that the web-slinger had to face that was literally from out of this world!
And fans have been wanting both of these entities to face each other off ever since the end of Spider-Man 3 back in 2007.
But it seems like it’s not only the fans that want this confrontation to happen. Recently, we heard Venom’s Eddie Brock actor Tom Hardy confessed that ‘He’d Do Anything To See Them Together,’ and fans have gotten their hopes up!
Tom Hardy Wants A Spider-Man Vs. Venom Movie!
Tom Hardy is well-known for the role of Venom in the two movies that have been created by Sony Pictures, and he loves to play the absolutely nightmarish alien symbiote from Marvel Comics. Being such an important supervillain from the Spider-Man comics, it’s no surprise that fans had always wanted to see them face each other, and Hardy is no stranger to this knowledge. In an interview with Esquire, Hardy discussed his desire to bring the two heroes together, acknowledging that it would be a momentous task but expressing optimism.
“Obviously, that’s a large canyon to leap, to be bridged by one person alone, and it would take a much higher level of diplomacy and intelligence, sitting down and talking, to take on an arena such as that. Should both sides be willing and it is beneficial to both sides, I don’t see why it couldn’t be,”
he said this when asked if we could see the web-slinger and the symbiote in action sharing the screen with each other.
Looking at their histories and how they tie to each other is a crucial part of both of their stories. Seeing as Peter Parker was the first human that Venom attached itself to is the beginning of character development for both of them. We see Venom trying to understand how humans work through Parker’s eyes, and later also finds humanity’s dark side through the eyes of Spider-man. Thus, Spider-Man can be seen as the progenitor of this supervillain that goes on to wreak havoc in the spidey-verse, and later on, his own venom-verse, which makes the two almost an inseparable pair.
What Does The Future Hold For Venom And Spider-Man?
After the events of Venom: Let There Be Carnage and Spider-Man: No Way Home, we saw Tom Holland’s Spider-Man and Tom Hardy’s Venom on the same silver screen, though not coming face to face with each other, they still gave us the hope for a future crossover between the two. And after the events of No Way Home, we saw the Spider-Men from different universes on the same screen, which made Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire a part of the MCU, expanding the possibilities of a crossover of Venom with any of these newly introduced old-time spiders in the future!
We might not have anything for certain at the moment, but just like the ever-expanding Spider-Verse, the possibilities are endless.
