Could Tom Holland’s Spider-Man be making an appearance in Venom after all?

Author: Zehra Phelan

For months we have been told that in no way will Tom Holland’s Spider-Man be making an appearance in Venom. News to the contrary has emerged from the mouth of documentary director Jon Schnepp.

Speaking on Collider’s Movie Talk, The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? director stated that Holland’s Spider-Man will be making an appearance;

“Spider-Man is going to be in Venom. For the last couple of months, we’ve been hearing how Sony is keeping it all separated, and Spider-Man is in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but every other character that’s in the Spider-Man universe is separate. All I’m saying is that Spider-Man – and I’m talking about Tom Holland’s Spider-Man – is going to be in Venom.”

Tom Hardy leads the cast as Eddie Brock, who in the comics was a photographer; Brock later becomes Venom after bonding with a Symbiote.

Rumour: The Venom movie will include Peter Parker, Not Spider-Man

Earlier this week it was rumored that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man may, in fact, be making a cameo in the upcoming Venom solo film starring Tom Hardy. This rumor has fueled hope in many fans, as one of the biggest complaints levelled against the film is the lack of Spidey. This would allow the film to finally give fans something that they have wanted for some time: Spider-Man facing off against his greatest foe on the big screen in a film that isn’t called Spider-Man 3.

Well, not so fast. While there is a rumor that Tom Holland will be making an appearance, there is no guarantee that we will see him as Spider-Man. Talking on an episode of Collider Heroes, Jon Schnepp — who made the initial rumor — clarifies what he meant from Tom Holland making an appearance:

Tom Holland Is In Venom, But As Peter Parker, Not Spider-Man

Is there another in-development comic book movie that’s garnered the same level of buzz as Venom?

With the exception of Avengers: Infinity War, Sony and Ruben Fleischer’s Spider-Man spinoff has been placed under such an intense spotlight that it seems like we’re never too far away from the next piece of content – leaked or otherwise. And sure enough, we’ve now got yet another update.

If you recall, the internet lost it yesterday when producer/director John Schnepp claimed that Tom Holland would be showing up in Venom. Given how many times we’ve heard that the project would be completely separate from the McU, and that Spidey would not be involved, most people called him out, saying he was completely wrong with his scoop. Now, he’s clarifying things.

Rumor: Tom Holland’s Spider-Man To Cameo In Venom

Ever since Sony announced their Tom Hardy-starring Venom movie, fans have been wondering what (if any) connection it would have to Spider-Man. While I suppose a completely disconnected film might work, the foundation of Venom’s character is his hatred for the webslinger – stemming from Peter Parker’s rejection of the symbiote after he realized it was trying to permanently bond with his body. Though both Sony and Marvel have denied any chance of Spidey swinging by for a cameo, a source is now saying that “he knows” Tom Holland is going to appear in Venom.

Said source is writer/director Jon Schnepp, who’s directed Metalocalypse, The Venture Bros and the feature-length documentary about the aborted 1990s Tim Burton Superman project, The Death of “Superman Lives”: What Happened? His opinion on this comes via Collider Video Head of Development Kristian Harloff, who today Tweeted the following:

‘Venom’ Releases First Official Image

Sony Pictures has released the first official image from the upcoming ‘Venom‘ spin-off. The film, which stars Tom Hardy and is directed by Ruben Fleischer, is set to be the first of what Sony hopes will be a series of films set in the Spider-Man universe featuring side characters such as Venom. This film in particular has been in development since his appearance in ‘Spider-Man 3’, having multiple directors attached to the project before Fleischer, most notably when Alex Kurtman was writing the film to be a stand alone piece. After the The Amazing Spider-Man 3 never came to fruition, and Sony came to a deal with Marvel to share the character, Fleischer’s film was fast-tracked for it’s current release date.

Since the announcement of the film, the look of Venom himself are being kept under tight wraps, as the character is set to be brought to life using motion capture techniques.

‘Venom’ First Look: Tom Hardy Is Going to Do ‘Everything He Can’ to Deliver the Best Villain Possible

When it comes to superhero movie offerings in 2018, Sony’s R-rated “Venom” starring Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, and Riz Ahmed is surely one of the most anticipated titles on the calendar. Fans will have to wait until October to see the finished production, but IGN has the official first look at the Ruben Fleischer-directed tentpole. Hardy and Fleischer recently appeared via satellite at Brazil Comic Con to tease the film.

“We want to be as true as possible to the comic with our film,” Fleisher said. “But our story is primarily based on the ‘Lethal Protector’ and the ‘Planet of the Symbiotes’ book.”

Hardy added: “I just wanted to say that I give you my word of honor that I’m going to do everything that I can to deliver the best Venom that I possibly can muster.

Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 Begins Production in Berlin This Summer

Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 is moving right along, as it looks like the movie is set to begin filming this summer. Marvel and Sony have managed to totally revive the character of Spider-Man in the eyes of the world, thank to Tom Holland's Peter Parker now being allowed to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now, we have word that the still untitled sequel is going to start filming this June overseas, interestingly enough, in Berlin, Germany.

For one, we know this means that the next Spider-Man movie in the McU is moving along rather swiftly, which was expected, given the success of Spider-Man: Homecoming. This also tells us that we could be in for something pretty different, as the shooting location would seem to imply. The last movie shot partially in New York and partially in Atlanta, where the bulk of the McU movies do at least some, if not quite a bit of filming.

‘Venom’: Everything You Need to Know About Tom Hardy’s Supervillain Movie
Does the world need another superhero franchise? No, probably not, but at least the upcoming “Venom” sounds cooler than most of its predecessors. Tom Hardy will play the villain of the title, a journalist who begins terrorizing Spider-Man and everyone else in New York after bonding with the alien lifeforce/suit known as the symbiote.

Due out later this year, “Venom” is currently filming. Here’s what you need to know about it before then.

Hardy is playing the eponymous supervillain, Aka Eddie Brock, who for reasons that have yet to be made entirely clear was previously portrayed by Topher Grace in Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man 3.” He’s joined by Michelle Williams as Ann Weying, better known as She-Venom, plus Riz Ahmed in a to-be-announced role. Many are hoping he’ll play Carnage,

Fierce Fan Art Shows Us How Venom May Look On Film

If one thing is to be said about Spider-Man, it’s that not only does he have one of the richest rogues galleries Marvel has to offer, but in all of comics as well. Of course, there are those whom True Believers tend to favor over others, but none of us can deny the cult following that Venom has amassed over the years.

Bonded to an alien symbiote that helps in giving him such a badass look, this character has sometimes found himself portrayed as an anti-hero, a practice not uncommon whenever someone normally thought of as being “a bad guy” is the protagonist in a given narrative. Thus, we expect that to hold true with the feature film.

To date, Eddie Brock has appeared in only one previous movie, that being the 2007 mess that was Spider-Man 3. And even though he was shoehorned by the studio into Sam Raimi

Venom Producer Says Tom Hardy’s Performance Is Something Special

The more I hear about Ruben Fleischer’s Venom, the more excited I get. When I was a kid in the 90s, I loved the character – who back then felt like a way cooler and grosser version of Spider-Man. My fandom has cooled off a lot since then (re-reading some of those 90s comics is painful), but I still think the anti-hero has a ton of potential. So, when I heard that Tom Hardy was going to play Eddie Brock/Venom in a film, I was over the moon.

Hardy is absolutely one of the best actors working today, displaying a scary level of commitment to each part he takes. Whether he’s a hero in Dunkirk or a villain in Bronson or The Dark Knight Rises, it’s difficult to take your eyes off him when he’s on screen. I can all but guarantee he’s going to

Riz Ahmed’s Secret Role In Venom Revealed?

Sony’s Venom movie is a fascinatingly unknown property at the moment. Despite having begun shooting with an October 5th, 2018 release date in mind, we know very little about what direction they’ll be taking the character in, though we’ve had hints that the studio might be considering an R-rating to truly capture the anti-hero.

Now though, courtesy of the below set photo, we might just have some idea of who Riz Ahmed is going to be playing in the film – and it’s not who everyone thought it was. We’ve known for a while that the Rogue One and Four Lions star would be appearing in the movie, with fans first assuming that he’d be taking on the role of Venom’s even more murderous sibling, Carnage. That was quickly shot down, however and there was also some talk that he might be playing The Chameleon

Venom Producer Hints That The Film May Be Part Of The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Of all the Spider-Man characters, Venom is one of the most vicious, exceeded only by symbiote serial killer Carnage. At the height of his 90’s popularity, his catchphrase was “I Want To Eat Your Brain!”, and he was frequently saying things like “I’m going to slurp down your brains like big fistfuls of jello.” He even put his money where his (big and toothy) mouth is in Venom: The Hunger #1, in which he actually chowed down on some poor goon’s cerebral cortex.

Given this, it’s probably not a huge surprise that Sony’s upcoming Tom Hardy-starring movie might receive an R-rating, thus allowing the character to presumably eat all the brains he wants to. The hint came in an interview with producer Matthew Tolmach, who was asked point blank by MTV whether the film would receive a PG-13 or R-rating. Though he wouldn’t confirm which direction they’re heading in,

Michelle Williams Has Officially Joined Venom, the Spider-Man Spinoff

If just hearing the name "Venom" gives you Ptsd from watching Tobey Maguire do that (incredibly cringey) dance in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3, never fear: the supervillain is getting a facelift. A film centered around Venom is in the works at Sony, and Tom Hardy is taking on the role of Eddie Brock, a human who gets infected by the evil alien symbiote. Not too much is known about Venom at the moment, but we've rounded up all the details that have trickled out about it so far (including an exciting new addition to the cast!).

Molly's Game review

Aaron Sorkin's directorial debut, Molly's Game, offers plenty to get your teeth into. Here's our review...

Aaron Sorkin is to writing what Meryl Streep is to acting – one of a few screenwriters who is visible and renowned enough that he's automatically a player in the awards season conversation whenever he gets a new movie made. And just in time for the end of the year, here comes Molly's Game.

As with his recently nominated scripts The Social Network, Moneyball and Steve Jobs, his directorial debut is also based on the exploits of a real life figure. Adapting the memoir of the same name, Molly's Game is about “self proclaimed Poker Princess” Molly Bloom, who became the subject of tabloid infamy a few years ago, when she was outed as the brains behind a prestigious underground poker empire frequented by celebrities, CEOs and mobsters.

Jessica Chastain plays the title character across 12 years of her lie,

Ultra HD 4K Blu-ray: recommended discs for Christmas

Den Of Geek Dec 15, 2017

The 4K disc market is slowly expanding - and here are some of the latest highlights...

Ultra HD 4K Blu-ray hasn’t enjoyed close to the success of the DVD or the Blu-ray format, but it’s quietly building itself a niche amongst those who want the highest possible definition physical format. Furthermore, the last few months have seen a growing number of new and catalogue releases, and we’re rounding up some of the highlights here.

Spider-Man legacy boxset

You get five films for your money in this posh box of Spider-Man movies. Sam Raimi’s original trilogy, and Marc Webb’s less-well-received The Amazing Spider-Man films. Sony hasn’t skimped here, either. You get alternative cuts of Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man 3 here alongside the theatrical editions, and some new extras too.

Woody Harrelson in Discussions to Join the Cast of New Venom Movie

  • DailyDead
Tom Hardy could have some new company in the upcoming Venom movie, as it's being reported that Woody Harrelson is in discussions to join the cast of Sony's movie about one of Spider-Man's most popular villains (or antihero, depending on how you view the character).

Word on Harrelson's potential involvement with Venom comes from Variety, who report that Harrelson would play a "henchman of sorts," although Sony has yet to officially comment on the casting.

Harrelson would join a cast that includes Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, a man who becomes linked with an alien Symbiote that turns him into Venom, one of the ultimate villains in the Spider-Man universe. Although Venom and the Symbiote have a big influence on Spider-Man in the Marvel comic books, this film would take place outside of Marvel's Cinematic Universe, which includes the most recent appearance by the web-slinger in this year's Spider-Man: Homecoming.

After Venom was woefully mishandled in Sam Raimi's Spider-man 3, fans have long been waiting for the popular character to receive his due on the big-screen.

Woody Harrelson in Talks to Join Tom Hardy in ‘Venom’
Woody Harrelson has joined Tom Hardy in Sony’s “Venom” movie.

Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams, and Jenny Slate are also on board, with Ruben Fleischer directing.

Although character details are sparse, sources say Harrelson will play a henchman of sorts. Sony had no comment on the casting.

Scott Rosenberg (“Jumanji”) and Jeff Pinkner (“The Dark Tower”) will write the script for “Venom,” with Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach producing the movie, along with Amy Pascal. Palak Patel and Eric Fineman are overseeing the project for Columbia Pictures.

Since his inception in 1988, Venom has been one of “Spider-Man’s” most popular characters, making it a top priority for the studio to get the movie off the ground. Venom made his big-screen debut in Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man 3,” where he was portrayed by Topher Grace.

Throughout the history of Marvel Comics, Venom has appeared alongside Spider-Man, Iron Man, Deadpool, Hulk, and other major characters.

Tom Hardy Reveals First Venom Plot Details

Spider-Man fans are waiting with intense curiosity to see how Sony’s upcoming Venom movie plays out. While some aren’t fond of the idea of the symbiotic supervillain being split from his web-headed nemesis, the casting of Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock has gone a long way to igniting interest in the project.

So far, the production has been kept mostly under wraps, but as filming continues down in Atlanta, we’re beginning to see more and more of the pic. Just a few days ago, for instance, we got a look at the first poster and now, thanks to Sony’s presentation during Comic Con Experience 2017 in Sao Paulo Brazil, some confirmation on which comic book storyline the movie will adapt has arrived.

Speaking to fans in a message recorded from the set, Hardy promised that he’d be bringing tons of action and dark humor to the role,
