So after many years of the fans calling for it to happen, Sony finally gave in and allowed Spider-Man to become a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Tom Holland making his debut as Peter Parker aka Spider-Man in the movie Captain America: Civil War, before then going on to star in his own standalone movie Spider-Man: Homecoming, which was very impressive indeed.
However, while fans were hoping that seeing Spider-Man join the Marvel Cinematic Universe would mean that we would get to see some of the classic villains also coming over, it seems that this is not going to happen at all. As we all know by now, Sony have decided that they are going to push ahead with their Venom movie, which will see British actor Tom Hardy taking on the lead role.
While there has not been a huge amount of casting news since then, it has now been reported that Oscar-winning actress Michelle Williams has been signed on to join Tom Hardy in the cast of Venom. There is no official word yet as to who exactly Michelle will be playing in Venom but it has been claimed that the actress will play the main love interest of Tom Hardy.
With Venom being a Sony project and not having any place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it seems that we are not going to get to see a cameo appearance from Tom Holland as Spider-Man, with some people even suggesting that Sony will give us a new Spider-Man, possibly going with a different version of the character, rather than using Peter Parker again.
Venom is aiming for an October 5, 2018 release date.
