Tom Hardy's Venom Has Joined The MCU, Marvel Boss Confirms

Tom Hardy's Venom Has Joined The MCU, Marvel Boss Confirms

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is getting huge. There are more and more heroes and villains joining the world, and among them are some faces you’d never expect to see. Of course with the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home comes the reintroduction of old Spider-Man villains such as Doc Ock, Green Goblin, and Electro - villains from previous Spider-Man iterations. Peter Parker’s old friend Vemon hasn’t been confirmed for the film yet, but Marvel Kevin Feige has confirmed that he indeed is now part of the MCU too. 


The Marvel Studio’s President Kevin Feige spoke to Collider (via Comicbook) about Venom and confirms that the baddie is now in the MCU too. Mild spoilers for Venom: Let There Be Carnage but the ending of the film does imply this is the case, or at least Tom Holland’s Parker and Venom will have the opportunity to meet. 

Here is the trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home...



When asked about is Venom and Spider-Man were going to meet, the president says: “You look at the obvious comic connotations between Venom and Spider-Man and it is inherent. So the minute Sony made their Venom movie and it worked as well as it did, and Tom Hardy became as iconic as he has become as Venom, then the obvious question is then, 'How do we start to merge them?'”

Feige also previously talked about how the ending of Vemon: Let There Be Carnage incorporated itself with the MCU. Of course, Sony and Disney are two different companies, and so there had to be a certain amount of collaboration between the two. He says: “There was a lot of coordination — and if you don't know all the coordination yet, I'm not going to be the one to tell you — but yes, between Sony and Marvel and the Venom team and the No Way Home team... We worked together on it.”

As we’ve said though, Venom has not been confirmed as a character in Spider-Man: No Way Home but neither have Tobey Maguire or Andrew Garfield. And we’re already hoping that all three will make their way into the MCU in style on December 17, 2021.
