During an interview with IGN on Instagram, Andy Serkis at first joked about the crossover, saying, “They want to know if Venom is gonna meet Spider-Man, but personally, it’s never gonna happen.” Of course, he immediately followed this up with, “I’m only joking, of course it’s gonna happen.” While it’s entirely possible that Serkis could be just messing around here, given what Feige and Fleischer have previously said, it seems more likely than not that the two characters will meet sooner rather than later.
It’s also important to remember that Sony is in the catbird seat where Spider-Man is concerned, and that the character’s future in the MCU is uncertain after the upcoming “Spider-Man: No Way Home” — the deal cut between Sony and Disney only covers one additional MCU film after Spider-Man 3. No such restriction applies to Sony Pictures, however, since that studio still controls the film and TV rights to the popular character.
The real question is when such a crossover could take place. Will it be in a later “Venom” movie or will it take place in the upcoming “Venom: Let There Be Carnage,” perhaps in a mid-credits scene? It would certainly be a move that even Marvel Studios would pull, if the roles were reversed. Unfortunately, fans will simply have to wait and see what happens when “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” debuts on October 1.
