Here’s How Venom & Miles Morales Will Have Their Movie Crossovers

Spider-Man: No Way Home, starring Tom Holland, is scheduled to open in theatres soon. With multiple trailers and interviews with the cast and crew slowly released and tickets now on sale, the press tour for the third Spider-Man film in the MCU. Because of this hype, many hope that this will include other Spider-Man mainstays such as Venom.

No Way Home is expected to feature a record number of Spider-Man villains in a single live-action film, as well as possibly a record number of Peter Parkers. Additionally, Sony producer Amy Pascal confirmed that other Spider-Man films set in the MCU starring Tom Holland are underway.

Despite this, fans are hoping for much more from their favourite web-slinger on the big screen in the future, including the possibility of seeing other Spider-Men, such as Miles Morales, appear in future films or Sony Marvel Universe favourites, such as Venom, cross over into the MCU. Now, a new interview has elucidated both of these scenarios.

Miles Morales or Venom in The Spider-Man’s Lore?

Amy Pascal, Sony’s producer, was asked in an interview with Fandango about the possibility of an MCU battle between Tom Holland’s Spider-Man and Tom Hardy’s Venom, as well as the debut of a live-action Miles Morales.

Pascal explained that because the story at the heart of each film comes first, before other elements such as villains are chosen, the creative team “always [has to] start there,” as Spider-Man films “are always just stories about a kid.”

“I would say there’s so many things that we’re going to be able to explore, but what we always have to do before we decide who the villain is going to be and what Spidey goes up against is what is the story we’re telling about? You know? What’s the Peter Parker story we’re telling? What’s the Miles Morales story that we’re telling? But we always have to start with that. The good thing about these movies is as big as the canvas they take place on can be, they are always just stories about a kid.”

Pascal also touched on the essence of Peter Parker’s character, describing him as “just a poor kid from Queens who wishes he could live a normal life:”

Fandango: “Just a kid from Queens…”

Amy Pascal: “Just a kid from Queens or Brooklyn, in the case of Miles, right?”

Fandango: “Of course!”

Amy Pascal: “In the case of Peter, he’s just a kid from Queens who’s got no money and wishes he could have a normal life.”

Does Spider-Man’s Next Step Include Venom?

Spider-Man: No Way Home will feature a slew of villains. And with the announcement of a new trilogy for Tom Holland’s Peter Parker, fans are naturally curious about the MCU’s next adversary. The post-credits scene for Venom 2 depicted Tom Hardy’s Venom and Holland’s Spider-Man coexisting in the same universe. Because of this, it could be a simple answer to this question and a way to tie the MCU and SMU together.

However, it is crucial to remember that just because a baddie appears in NWH does not mean they will not return in a different form in a future film. This is especially the case with the MCU’s introduction of the Multiverse and Variants. It is exciting to know that the Green Goblin will appear in No Way Home. Furthermore, Oscorp could be a great addition to the next Spider-Man trilogy. This is particularly if Marvel Studios decides to make the company the new owner of the former Avengers Tower.

Is the Spider-Man Torch Being Passed To Miles Morales For Good?

Tom Holland recently stated that he might not wish to continue playing Spider-Man indefinitely. As a reason, it’s likely that, with other MCU characters whose actors have retired, the mantle will be passed to another character when the time comes. The door has been opened for Variants of characters. These include Peter Parker. And so, Miles Morales is a Marvel fan favourite and appears to be the natural choice for the next Spider-Man.

It might be interesting for Miles to make an initial appearance alongside Holland’s version of the web-slinger. This can be done to capitalize on any story opportunities best served by the two working together. It would also serve as a way for Peter Parker’s story to conclude. This will be so, with him first being mentored by Iron Man and then serving as a role model for the MCU’s next Spider-Man.
