Sony headed up to SDCC to preview its upcoming movies, including Venom! This engaging panel featured cast discussion and an exclusive trailer. The panel, which marked the Tom’s first time in the Hall H, was moderated by Jessica Chobot and Tom was there alongside his co-star Riz Ahmed and director Ruben Fleischer.
During the panel, director Ruben Fleischer hinted a possible sequel for the movie, saying “We’re definitely planning a huge world with this Venom story.” The panel also addressed the spider-shaped elephant in the room during the closing moments. With Venom’s origin inextricably linked to Peter Parker in the comics, is there any chance we could see Tom Holland’s web-slinger on screen again this September?
“I think we an all agree it would be pretty amazing to see Spider-Man and Venom face off in a film,” said Fleischer, confirming or denying nothing. “I have to think the studio’s thinking the same way and, at some point down the road, they’re going to run across each other’s paths.” Tom Hardy was then asked if he’d like to fight Spider-Man, a question he answered amusingly literally, “What, go toe-to-toe with Tom Holland? I’ll have a go, yeah. You’ve got to have a go, ain’t yah.”
Fun fact: Tom is also voicing Venom.
