It is possible that somewhere down the line that we may see¬†Tom Holland as Spider-Man taking on Tom Hardy as Venom, as Sony does still own the film rights to the Wall Crawler, and the character is only on loan to Marvel Studios.
Tom Holland, who has actually been rumored to be making a cameo¬†as Peter Parker in the upcoming Sony Venom movie, was asked which villain he would like to tackle while appearing at this weekend's Ace Seattle Comic-Con.
"Maybe Venom?" Tom Holland replied.
Tom Holland's Spidey has already taken on the Vulture and is rumored to be taking on Mysterio, played by Jake Gyllenhaal, in the recently revealed Spider-Man: Far From Home MCU film, the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming; so at some point, Venom seems likely.
In the comics, Venom is one of Spidey's greatest villains (and¬†at times allies), but it remains to be seen what Sony does with Venom and Tom Hardy, which may see a possible origin change.
A producer at Sony did state that Spider-Man will be back at Sony, and Tom Holland has reportedly signed a lengthy deal with Sony for the¬†Uncharted¬†franchise; in addition, as Sony continues to build their¬†Spider-Man spinoff movie universe, it does seem likely that Holland will be featured as Spider-Man a part of those flicks eventually.
Sony currently has the Venom movie (out October 5), Silver Sable and Black Hat, Nightwatch, Morbius the Living Vampire, and a Silk¬†movie in development as part of¬†their Spider-Man spinoffs.¬†
Spider-Man: Far From Home hits next July from Marvel Studios.
