After Morbius, Tom Hardy’s Venom Will Battle Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man.
TOM HARDY’s Venom is set to share the screen with Spider-Man: No Way Home star Andrew Garfield, following the events of Morbius, according to a thrilling new report. The latter’s director Daniel Espinosa shared some massive multiverse spoilers, only adding fuel to the rumours.
Having not had a chance to make The Amazing Spider-Man 3, Andrew Garfield returned as a Peter Parker variant with Tobey Maguire in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Following the incredible reaction from fans, rumours have been sprouting that Sony want more of the Brit’s take on the Web-Slinger. Having initially told his two counterparts he’s never fought an alien, a new report claims there are big plans afoot for The Amazing Spider-Man.
During the end credits scene of Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock was transported to the MCU, before being sent back in the mid-credits of Spider-Man: No Way Home. Just like Garfield’s Peter Parker, he’s from a non-MCU universe, but could they be from the same one?
Interestingly, Morbius director Daniel Espinosa confirmed to CinemaBlend: “Morbius lives in the same universe as Venom. This is the universe we saw Venom exit at the end of VENOM: LET THERE BE CARNAGE and return to at the end of SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME.”
The filmmaker then went on to tease there’s a Spider-Man variant in this Venom/Morbius universe too. Espinosa said: “Of course. It is my understanding that audiences will discover the answer soon.” Given that Maguire already faced a Venom variant played by Topher Grace in Spider-Man 3, surely it must be Garfield’s.
Adding to the speculation, Geekosity’s sources claim Tom Hardy’s Venom will fight Garfield’s Spider-Man in either Venom 3 or The Amazing Spider-Man 3. It’s not clear which one just yet, but the outlet teased a few more tantalising details.
