In an interesting turn of events, FandomWire is reporting that Tom Hardy will be voicing Venom in the upcoming animated Spider-Man film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Hardy is, of course, starring as Eddie Brock aka Venom in the live-action solo Venom film set for release later this year.
It’s entirely possible that Hardy will be lending his voice talents because he has an infatuation with the character of Venom and wants to continue his take on the iconic villain. However, there’s the small chance if this report is accurate that Venom is somehow connected to Into the Spider-Verse.
Obviously, this entire report should be taken with a big grain of salt. The idea of connecting a live-action more adult-focused Venom into a what’s expected to be a more lighthearted animated film seems preposterous. But there are a couple things that make you take a second glance.
Into the Spider-Verse appears to be a story where Miles Morales takes a trip through the multiverse, appropriately dubbed the “Spider-Verse”. Would it be out of the question that Morales finds his way to Hardy’s Venom universe? I don’t think so. To go along with that both films produced solely by Sony and have no affiliations with the MCU, well any that have been confirmed.
That being said, it was also reported recently that Tom Holland has been on the set of Venom and will appear in the film as Peter Parker. Neither Sony nor Marvel has confirmed any connection to the MCU but again it’s likely not out of the realm of possibility.
