We’re so close to the release of Venom that you can practically smell the toxicity in the air. And although we’ll undoubtedly get a live-action adaptation of the sinister symbiote worthy of the antagonistic moniker – due in large part to typically magnetic work from Tom Hardy – whether or not everyone’s favorite friendly neighborhood Spider-Man will be stopping by, does remain to be seen.
The latest intel on the situation, according to director Ruben Fleischer, is the titular web-head will not be apart of the cantankerous Klyntar’s first solo venture. Naturally, however, that hasn’t stopped the fandom from envisioning what Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock locked in battle with various Spider-Men could look like.
After all, Hardy did have a choice word or two for the current portrayer of the eponymous web-slinger, Tom Holland, last month at SDCC, and seeing as such a showdown has even been teased by Fleischer himself, it might just become a reality one day. Until then, though, we’ll have to make due with this awesome concept trailer.
For those of you who don’t know, a new fan theory is doing the rounds and is suggesting that none other than Andrew Garfield could reprise his role as Peter Parker and make a cameo appearance in Ruben Fleischer’s Venom. While it’s certainly sparked some serious debate online, Stryder HD has taken the concept one step further now and compiled footage from The Amazing Spider-Man, Venom, Spider-Man 3 and Resident Evil: The Final Chapter into a trailer where such an encounter’s envisaged.
If you ask us, we wouldn’t count on seeing any version of Spidey show up in the film, but either way, it won’t be long now until all is revealed. And that’s because Venom – starring Tom Hardy, Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams and Woody Harrelson – is scheduled to invade your local multiplex on October 5th, later this year.
