Venom 3 has an impossible Spider-Man challenge after No Way Home
Before the events of Spider-Man: No Way Homethere was hope that Sony’s Venom (Tom Hardy) and Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Spider-Man (Tom Holland) would cross paths in Poison 3but that is now an impossible challenge afterwards No Way Man. As the MCU continues its expansion with the Multiverse saga, Sony’s Spider-Man Universe also continues to grow by exploring the stories of some of Spider-Man’s most famous foes, with Venom currently at the helm.
Sony’s Spider-Man Universe began in 2018 with Ruben Fleischer poison, which introduced struggling reporter Eddie Brock (Hardy) and the alien symbiote of the title. Although poison was not well received by critics, it was a success with the public, allowing him to return in a sequel, titled Venom: Let there be carnagewith a third film now in development. Poison 2 He had a big surprise up his sleeve, as his mid-credits scene saw Eddie and Venom transported to the MCU, where they saw Peter Parker on the news. This fueled the public’s hopes of finally seeing Venom fight Spider-Man Poison 3But Spider-Man: No Way Home now it has made it very difficult.
No Way Home credits set up Spider-Man vs. Venom (but not Hardy’s version)
The current era of the MCU is officially called the Multiverse Saga, and Phase 4 began exploring the multiverse in the TV series. Loki. The MCU delved into the chaos and dangers of the multiverse Spider-Man: No Way Home, which saw the titular hero deal with villains from other parts of the multiverse. As his identity was revealed at the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home and Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) framed him for his murder, Peter Parker asked Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to cast a spell that would make everyone forget he’s Spider-Man. However, the spell failed and opened the gates of the multiverse, allowing villains from the past Spider-Man movies, along with Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Men, to move into the MCU.
The only solution to this multiverse chaos was to cast a spell that made everyone forget Peter Parker, and so the villains, Peter-Two and Peter-Three were sent back to their respective universes, while the doors to the multiverse were closed and Peter stayed all. ground. In Now Way homeIn the mid-credits scene, it was revealed that the botched spell was what brought Eddie and Venom to the MCU, so they were sent back after casting the final spell, but he left a piece of Venom in the MCU. This then sets up a Spider-Man/Venom encounter in the MCU, but not with Hardy’s Eddie Brock as host.
Eddie Brock isn’t the only host of Venom in Marvel Comics, so there are a couple of options for the piece of the symbiote now in the MCU. Of course, there’s the possibility that the symbiote will team up with Spider-Man himself (hopefully in a better story than Sam Raimi’s). Spiderman 3), but could also find a host in Marc Gargan/Scorpion (Michael Mando) or even Flash Thompson (Tony Revolori), both characters already introduced in the MCU. One theory suggests that Venom could team up with Ned Leeds (Jacob Batalon), making the Venom vs Spider-Man fight personal for Peter Parker.
Tom Hardy’s Venom deserves to fight a Spider-Man
Eddie and Venom’s story has been explored in a way that they don’t need Spider-Man, but that doesn’t mean they don’t deserve to fight him. After first teaming up with Spider-Man in the comics and then taking on Eddie Brock as his main host, Venom became one of Spider-Man’s most prominent and popular villains, and was considered one of their three archenemies at one time (the others were the Greens). Goblin and Doctor Octopus). Venom has since become an anti-hero and teamed up with Spider-Man a couple of times, so they definitely deserve to cross paths on the big screen.
Venom 3 including Spider-Man is very difficult after No Way Home
As much as Venom and Spider-Man deserve to meet and fight each other (and maybe later join forces), that’s now much more difficult thanks to the events of No Way Man. Before the third solo Spider-Man film, it was speculated that Venom and Spider-Man could cross paths thanks to Peter’s identity being revealed to the world, as they were then assumed to live in the same universe. Spider-Man: No Way Home quickly put an end to those rumors by showing that Sam Raimi’s spider man spiderman trilogy, by Marc Webb The Amazing Spider-Man the films and the Sony Spider-Man Universe are part of the MCU multiverse, but at the same time they are separate from the Spider-Man MCU universe.
Because of this, Hardy’s Venom and Holland’s Spider-Man can’t be found (yet), and the web-slinger can’t be included in Poison 3, for that matter, there should be another massive multiverse issue that ties them together. In No Way ManIn the mid-credits scene, Eddie decided he needed to talk to Spider-Man to make sense of everything he was told had happened in the MCU, but that won’t make any sense now that he’s back in his universe .
How Venom 3 could still include Spider-Man
However, just like the MCU’s Spider-Man can still fight Venom, though not the Hardy version, Poison 3 it may still feature Spider-Man… but maybe not Holland’s version. As mentioned above, in order for Hardy’s Venom and Holland’s Spider-Man to meet properly, there would have to be another multiverse mayhem to bring them together, but that would depend on when Poison 3 is established Now, the MCU multiverse has introduced the concept of variants, which is how Maguire and Garfield’s Spider-Mans became, so there could be a currently unknown variant of Peter Parker in the Venom universe , waiting for a chance to cross paths with Eddie and the symbiote. Down to the details of the story Poison 3 are revealed and their place in the timeline is confirmed, these seem to be the only ways Poison 3 could include Spider-Man (either Holland’s version or a variant), and while Spider-Man: No Way Home it was exciting, it also made other stories even more difficult.
