There was a speculation that Sony studio may move in the direction of a possible standalone Venom movie, some even said that it’s in the pre-production stage. The character of Venom has featured in the past Spiderman trilogy directed by Sam Raimi, but it was rushed and shoddy. Sam Raimi confessed the fact that he never wanted Venom in the last installment but studio meddled and forced him to include him, as a result, it turned out to be a disaster.
Since then there has been a lot of chatter about a possible spin-off movie at Sony, but it went nowhere as he didn’t appear in the Amazing Spiderman franchise too. Unfortunately, around the same time Sony e-mail scandal surfaced which revealed how big a travesty was Sinister six possible spin-off which was also in the pipeline. There was also a rumor about two different versions of Spiderman, one in Marvel cinematic universe and another in Spiderman/Venom movies much like Quick Silver where two different actors play the same character in two different universes.
But after this crisis came an opportunity, when Sony and Marvel studios decided to collaborate and bring Spiderman into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). He guest-starred in Captain America: Civil War, fans loved him so much that the studio decided to make a brand new Spiderman franchise in collaboration with the Marvel, Tom Holland has been cast as new Spiderman. Now, there is a strong possibility of Venom coming in Infinity War movies as “Symbiotes” is confirmed to have a role in Phase 3. The movie will be set in space, Spiderman’s role is set to expand in future Marvel movies, hence it makes a lot of sense to bring Venom into the Marvel cinematic universe. Well….we will see…CHEERS!
