Spider-Man: Homecoming 3 will bring with it a multiverse story. Sony could be of aid in setting it up with Venom: Let There Be Carnage. For years, Spider-Man remained outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe before Sony and Marvel Studios agreed to share the character. The success of Tom Holland‘s new iteration of Spider-Man, though, sparked Sony’s hopes of creating a shared universe of their own. It started in 2018 with Venom and will go on with Venom 2; although the movies are so far not connected to the MCU.
The chances of Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters crossing over with Holland’s MCU Spider-Man seems more probable now more than ever. The production of Spider-Man: Homecoming 3 has brought numerous rumors about characters from past Spider-Man films appearing. It is now evident that the movie will deal with the multiverse in some capacity, especially with Doctor Strange appearing before Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. And while fans watch how other MCU properties can tease Spider-Man 3’s multiverse story, Venom 2 can do it in various ways.
One of the major rumors about Venom 2 is that Tom Holland will appear in some capacity. Similar rumors spread before the release of it’s first part, but those came out false. Holland’s role in Venom 2 is not yet in confirmation, but any such appearance could be knot to the multiverse. Marvel and Sony have lesser options to make such a role combine with the story. It would be somewhat surprising if Venom 2 made the SPUMC officially part of the main MCU reality with Holland’s appearance. Instead, Holland could act as the Spider-Man from Venom’s universe.
Venom Spider-man Multiverse
Venom 2 could have Holland as a new iteration of Spider Man. However, the crossover that fans are more interested in is between Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock and Holland’s MCU Spidey. This can still appear in Venom’s sequel and pave way for Spider Man 3. Holland’s cameo could possibly witness him briefly appear in an alternate reality; unaware with what is happening as a tie to his multiverse adventures. There’s even the possibility that Holland’s appearance could be of use in setting up Venom joining Spider Man 3’s ensemble. A probable post-credits scene where Venom shifts to a new reality after gaining victory over Carnage would go a long way in setting up Spider Man 3 and hinting his appearance in the film.
This could get puzzling with Holland portraying two different versions of Spider-Man, but it’d be an indulging plot to catch on before Spider-Man 3.
The chances of what Venom 2 could do to tie to Spider Man 3 are huge. Since it doesn’t even have to need an appearance by Holland. The trailer for Morbius confirmed Vulture (Michael Keaton) and included a poster starring Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man. There is not much information about what Sony plans to do with Venom: Let There Be Carnage, but it might go beyond Holland. The sequel could include or reference other versions of Spider-Man or feature other characters who will appear in Spider Man: Homecoming 3.
