Venom was a big success for Sony when the film was released back in 2018. While the film wasn’t received too well by critics, it still received a decent response from fans and took in over $800 million in the worldwide box office.

Ruben Fleischer fisher directed the film; however, when it came to the sequel, Let There Be Carnage, he was busy working on another Sony film, Uncharted, so he was replaced with Andy Serkis.

In an interview with Cinemabeld, Fleischer said that he would love to return to direct a potential Venom and Spider-Man. However, he feels that it is unlikely:

“We’ll have to see. I mean, it would be honestly a dream come true to have those two worlds converge. It’ll be a formidable battle between those two characters, so… whether or not I direct it, I’ll certainly be excited to see it.”

Will The Venom and Spider-Man Crossover Even Happen?

Venom-vs-Spider-Man

Fans of both Venom and Spider-Man have wondered when the two would finally cross paths considering their history in the comics. At the end of Let There Be Carnage Eddie Brock and Venom were transported into the MCU. However, we see them at the end of Spider-Man: No Way Home where they were almost immediately transported back into their own universe.

No Way Home seemed like it would have been the perfect opportunity to have the two meet. Unfortunately, it did not happen so the question becomes what exactly are Sony and Marvel planning for the two characters?

Morbius

Another film set in Sony’s Spider-Man Universe is Morbius which is set to release exclusively in theaters on April 1st. Michael Keaton, who played the Vulture in the MCU, is set to reprise his role in the film. This makes things incredibly confusing as we are led to believe that Morbius and Venom are set in the same universe.

We are also led to believe that Spider-Man exists in the film thanks to a mural seen in the background of one of the trailers. Perhaps after the events of No Way Home, some aspects of the two universes were amalgamated allowing us to see a new version of Spider-Man and the Vulture.

With Morbius’s delay from January to April many fans have speculated that Sony could be bringing in another Spider-Man actor, such as Andrew Garfield, to appear in the film after the success of No Way Home. Maybe this could finally be the connection Spider-Man fans have been waiting for…

Hopefully, fans will finally get an idea one what in the world is going on when Morbius finally releases in theaters. Until then, we will continue to be just as confused as ever.

Venom stars Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock and Venom, Michelle Williams as Anne Weying, Riz Ahmed as Carlton Drake and Riot, Scott Haze as Roland Treece, and Reid Scott as Dan Lewis.
