As Tom Holland hits the big screens as our new and improved friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man today, he has quashed any rumours he might be starring alongside Tom Hardy in the forthcoming Venom movie.
In a short and sweet answer to the question posed to him by the Toronto Sun whether he will pull on the tight fitting Spidey suit Holland stated “No, They exist in a different world”
With Captain America: Civil War giving Spider-Man his first adventure inside the Marvel cinematic universe – his stay there has been cemented into five different movies according to Marvel president Kevin Feige with Homecoming 2 rounding up the last Avengers which is due to be released in May 2019.
“We are looking at a five-movie storyline — Civil War, Homecoming, Avengers: Infinity War, untitled Avengers, Homecoming 2 — or whatever we end up calling it — as an amazing five-story journey for Peter Parker,” Feige says. “In the way that the events of Civil War directly inform the opening of Homecoming and his state of mind as he goes back to high school, so too will the events of the next two Avengers movies as he continues with high school. This original 22-movie arc ends with the untitled Avengers in May of 2019 and then two months later it will be Peter and Spider-Man that usher us into the aftermath and how things proceed from there.”
Even thought the Robin Fleischer directed Venom, along with Silver Sable and Black Cat are part of Sony’s dalliance in the Marvel universe – They are keeping their most prized possession in his own web for the foreseeable future.
