A Spider-Man and Venom crossover is really happening!

It’s a Tom VS Tom scenario! As Tom Holland and Tom Hardy potentially face-off in a Spider-Man and Venom crossover film!
Spider-Man and Venom fans, you’re in luck because we may be seeing the iconic rivals in a crossover film soon! According to ‘Venom’ director Ruben Fleischer in an interview with Fandom, he said that they are indeed “building towards” a confrontation between Spider-Man and Venom. And honestly, that’s all it takes to get us excited about the prospect of this film! I’m sure MCU and comic book fans alike, all agree that this is something worth seeing! Especially because both Tom Holland’s Spider-Man and Tom Hardy’s Venom were well received by audiences everywhere!
Will it really happen?
Well to give you a blunt answer, it’s all still up in the air. Much like when Marvel Studios president Kevin Fiege said back in June that a crossover movie between the two “seemed likely” but that it all still depended on Sony. And everyone knows how intense those deals go, between Disney x Marvel and Sony. We even lost Spider-Man in the MCU for a while. But thankfully, Tom Holland saved the day.
But at the same time, Ruben Fleischer did reveal that that was the point of changing the origin of Venom, to eventually lead to a crossover:
“That’s where it’s all going to lead… And that’s the exciting thing because we changed the origin of Venom [for the first movie]. In the comics, he evolved from Spider-Man but because of the Marvel-Sony thing we weren’t able to do that. And so the thing I think it’s building towards, and will be exciting to see, is when they actually do confront each other.”
So let’s just hope they’ll stick to the original plan and make this film a reality!
Although the Venom director is handing over the Venom-verse to someone else
That’s right! If ever the Spider-Man and Venom crossover film will happen, it won’t be under Ruben Fleischer’s direction anymore. He’s giving the helm to Andy Serakis who recently directed ‘Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle’.
And so ever since news of this broke out, fans have been airing their thoughts on the possible Spider-Man and Venom crossover film.
Although there is some skepticism from fans:
Ruben:venom and Spider-Man will crossover.
