- Audiences can next see Spider-Man in Spider-Man: Far From Home.
After Tom Holland's Spider-Man appears in Spider-Man: Far From Home, the web slinger could appear in a movie with Venom. That's according to Marvel's Kevin Feige, who said the crossover is "likely."
Feige made the comments to CinemaBlend in a recent interview to promote Spider-Man: Far From Home. The comments confirm what we expected all along, though Feige does acknowledge how tricky such a crossover would be.
"I think probably it's up to Sony," Feige said. "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."
If Spider-Man and Venom do meet, it's unlikely it'll be in the MCU, since Sony owns the rights to both characters. Not to mention Sony is creating its own universe around Spider-Man, beginning with Tom Hardy's Venom film. Other movies like Morbius and Kraven the Hunter are also in the works.
What'll likely happen is Venom will come across Spider-Man in the inevitable sequel to 2018's Venom. But will they get along? Or will they become enemies like they so often are in the comics?
Either way, it's all a bit confusing. For now, audiences can see Tom Holland's Spider-Man in Spider-Man: Far From Home, which hits theaters on July 2.
