Venom Vs. Spider-Man Film Being Developed

Venom will fight Spider-Man in an upcoming film.

Venom and Spider-Man first battled onscreen in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 in 2007.

However, the sequel failed to meet fan expectations.

Nevertheless, the movie crushed the box office; it earned $890.9 million. But Topher Grace (That ’70s Show) drew criticism as Venom; moreover, reviewers complained the film featured too many villains.

People have been awaiting a rematch even more now.

Spider-Man has established himself as a huge part of the MCU.

Venom, of course, has his own solo franchise.

The sequel, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, is scheduled for September 24, 2021. (It’ll be a theatrical release.)

Well, it looks like patience is about pay off as a new report has stated that Venom Vs. Spider-Man is in active development at Sony Pictures.

According to a trusted source of theirs, this project has been a priority of Sony’s for a while now.

However, they have not been able to move forward with it due to character rights issues with Marvel Studios.

The original deal between the two companies had Spider-Man’s solo movies taking place in the MCU and Venom’s taking place in its own continuity.

But now the new agreement will have Sony movies stream exclusively on Disney Plus after their Netflix run.

Tom Holland’s Spider-Man will continue appearing in both the MCU and Sony’s pocket Spider-Verse.

Whether this showdown will take place within the MCU is still up in the air.

Nevertheless, the recent trailer for Venom: Let There Be Carnage possibly featured a subtle mention of the Avengers.

Also, Sony’s other upcoming Marvel movie Morbius showed a cameo from Michael Keaton’s Adrian Toomes.

He was last seen as the main villain in 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming.

That took place in the MCU.

Spider-Man: No Way Home’s plot involves the multiverse.

It looks very possible that one way or a another this will be collaborative project between both Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures.

Geekosity scooped a Spider-Man-Venom meeting on December 25, 2020.

At the time, sources explained that Venom won’t truly be a bad guy when he faces Spider-Man but a misunderstood anti-hero.

Sony doesn’t want him to go off on the deep end to protect his own movies; after all, you can’t make the star of a Spider-Man spin-off become evil.

When Venom does raise hell with Peter Parker, they will collaborate against a mutual foe: Carnage.

It is not known if these are the same projects.

Writer David Michelinie and artist Todd McFarlane co-created Venom.

He stunned readers when he debuted in The Amazing Spider-Man No. 300 in 1988.
