Venom & Spider-Man movie ‘likely’ but up to Sony, says Kevin Feige
CinemaBlend recently spoke with Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige about the possibility of a Spider-Man and Venom movie, with audiences hoping to see Tom Holland and Tom Hardy facing off on the big screen one day, but Feige says the decision is ultimately up to Sony.
“I think probably it’s up to Sony. Sony has both those characters and, has Venom in their world. I don’t know what their plans are for another Venom or if they’re doing that. But it seems likely at some point,” Feige said.
Sony owns the rights to Spider-Man and the villains from that universe. In 2015, Sony and Marvel struck a deal making it possible for the Spider-Man character to become a part of the MCU. Venom was a massive success for Sony, earning over $855 million worldwide. A Venom sequel wouldn’t be a surprise, though time will tell if Holland’s Spider-Man will ever face off against the Symbiote.
Next up for Spider-Man is the highly-anticipated sequel Spider-Man: Far From Home, which opens in theaters on July 2. Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man must step up to take on new threats in a world that has changed forever.
Spider-Man: Far From Home cast members include Tom Holland as your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, plus Zendaya as “MJ,” Jacob Batalon as Ned, with Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, and Jake Gyllenhaal will play Mysterio. New additions include comedian J.B. Smoove and Numan Acar (Aladdin) as Dimitri. MCU veterans Samuel L. Jackson (Captain Marvel) and Cobie Smulders will also join Holland’s Spider-Man sequel as Nick Fury and Maria Hill respectively.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is directed by Jon Watts and written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, all returning from first film Spider-Man: Homecoming.
