Marvel fans have wished to see Venom in a Spider-Man crossover since the premiere of his debut film. Despite being from the Marvel universe, neither character currently has a shared universe in cinemas. Spider-Man is part of the Marvel Cinematic World, whereas Eddie Brock and the Symbiote are part of the Marvel universe created by Sony for the Spider-Man antagonists.

In a much lengthier and in-depth interview with Esquire, Hardy is asked if he’d like to see a Venom-Spider-Man crossover with the MCU’s current Spider-Man, played by Tom Holland. His response is insightful and enlightening in equal measure.

“I would be remiss if I wasn’t trying to steer any kind of connectivity. I wouldn’t be doing the job if I wasn’t awake and open to any opportunity or eventuality or be excited by that. Obviously, that’s a large canyon to leap, to be bridged by one person alone, and it would take a much higher level of diplomacy and intelligence, sitting down and talking, to take on an arena such as that.”

It’s not every day that the star of a comic book franchise becomes so involved with the development of the character. Hardy appears to have a personal investment in the Eddie Brock/Venom dichotomy (and the loads of money that dichotomy brings to his front door) as a producer on the Venom movies (as well as the guy who first proposed the idea of using Carnage in the first place, giving him a “story by” credit on the sequel), and it’s strangely endearing. Hardy goes on to say that he hopes the executives from both companies can get together and sort something out.

“Should both sides be willing, and it be beneficial to both sides, I don’t see why it couldn’t be. I hope and strongly, with both hands, push, eagerly, towards that potential, and would do anything to make that happen, within what’s right in business. But it would be foolish not to head towards the Olympic Games if you were running 100 metres, so yeah! I want to play on that field.”

Once upon a time, Tom Hardy’s speculations would have been disregarded as wishful thinking. We’ve had to modify our expectations since Marvel and Sony teamed up in an unprecedented studio collaboration to bring the famous web-slinger to the MCU in Captain America: Civil War in 2016. It took a complex arrangement to transform Spider-Man into the next fan-favorite MCU hero, and it now appears that doing it with the villain/antihero Venom is within reach.
