Despite the first “Venom” film having no “Spider-Man” crossover, the possibility remains according to actor Tom Hardy who is keen to see it happen.
“Venom” serves as the first film of Sony Pictures’ universe of Marvel characters (SPUMC) with its upcoming sequel, “Morbius” and the “Kraven the Hunter” movie also a part. However there are also potential links to the MCU – especially once the full multiverse events of “Loki,” “Spider-Man: No Way Home” and the “Doctor Strange” sequel play out.
“Venom” has the strongest links with Spider-Man in the comics, and Hardy tells Esquire this week that the possibility of crossing over with Sony’s larger “Spider-Man” franchise and expanding the playing field is on his mind:
“I would be remiss if I wasn’t trying to steer any kind of connectivity. I wouldn’t be doing the job if I wasn’t awake and open to any opportunity or eventuality or be excited by that.
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.
