A new photo with Venom star Tom Hardy has sparked rumors that suggest he’ll be popping up in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
A lot has been said these last few weeks about Tom Holland’s Spider-Man and Tom Hardy’s Venom popping up together in a future project. While it’s mostly speculation from fans and anticipation from the creatives, a new photo may indicate that things are moving along at a solid rate. Tom Hardy has openly discussed wanting to work with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man despite their respective characters not existing in the same universe. But with Spider-Man: No Way Home opening up the multiverse, Venom can easily pop up at any given time.
Recently, Tom Hardy was spotted wearing a Spider-Man: No Way Home production hat which, well… is exciting to say the least. We’re not sure if Hardy printed the hat himself or if he got it from the Marvel Studios production but either way, it’s got many thinking that Venom will be popping up in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
It’s also entirely possible that Venom: Let There Be Carnage directly teases a crossover that could manifest in Spider-Man: No Way Home, or in a future Marvel film. For now, all we can do is speculate as to what will happen next. As Venom director Andy Serkis previously stated that Spider-Man and Venom crossing over is a matter of when not if.
Here is the synopsis for Spider-Man: No Way Home:
“For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero is unmasked and no longer able to separate his normal life from the high-stakes of being a Super Hero. When he asks for help from Doctor Strange the stakes become even more dangerous, forcing him to discover what it truly means to be Spider-Man.”
Directed by Jon Watts from a script written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, Spider-Man: No Way Home stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jon Favreau, Jacob Batalon, Marisa Tomei, J.B. Smoove, Benedict Wong, Alfred Molina, Jamie Foxx, Tony Revolori and J.K. Simmons.
