Marvel’s Spider-Man: Far From Home is set to release in July ahead of next year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. The sequel will see Peter Parker swing his way across the globe with a high school friend, while a cameo from the live-action version of Venom will surely be a highlight of the film.
Tom Hardy has chatted with a fan on Twitter about Venom and Spider-Man appearing in the same movie. “You will see it in the same universe, in the same time,” Hardy said. “I think it will be great. But whether or not they meet, I don’t know!” he added, jokingly.
A few weeks ago, Tom Hardy revealed a few details about his upcoming film, Venom. Speaking in a press conference, he said that the movie will focus on the life of Eddie Brock, a journalist who becomes the host of a symbiotic chemical on his body, giving him superpowers. After being fired, he joins forces with the alien supervillain known as Venom, and soon transforms into the character we know and love. The actor said that the film will also feature Spider-Man, and will serve as a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. When the interviewer asked if the two characters will share the screen, Hardy revealed that they are going to appear together, but it won’t be a cameo.

Tom Hardy has hinted at a possible crossover between his Venom character and Spider-Man.
Tom, who originally played Eddie Brock and the symbiote Venom in the 2018 picture, will soon be seen in the sequel, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, on which he also acted as a producer and contributed to the screenplay.
And now, in an interview for the Autumn 2020 edition of Esquire UK, he’s spilt the beans on his involvement.
When asked whether his Spider-Man character, who originally appeared in comic books, might feature in a future film alongside the web-slinger, Tom replied he’would be remiss if I wasn’t trying to establish any sort of connection.’
‘I wouldn’t be performing my job if I wasn’t alert and open to any possibility or eventuality, or if I wasn’t thrilled by it,’ he said.
‘Obviously, it is a huge canyon to cross by one person alone, and it would require a far greater degree of diplomacy and intellect to take on an arena like that while sitting and chatting.

‘Should both parties be willing, and it be advantageous to both sides, I don’t see why that couldn’t happen,’ the star added. I hope and enthusiastically push towards that possibility with both hands, and I would do everything to make that happen, within the bounds of corporate ethics.
‘However, if you were running 100 meters, it would be stupid not to aim for the Olympic Games, so yes! That’s a field I’d want to play on.’
The British actor, who has been in films such as Dunkirk, The Revenant, and Mad Max: Fury Road, also spoke on the potential of a third Marvel film using his character.
‘I’m also thinking about the third film, since I believe you should write it at the same time,’ he added.
‘A third won’t be approved until the second is a hit, but the studio was ecstatic with number two.’
