The Plot Twist That Shook the Fanbase

In an unexpected twist, the trailer showcases a pivotal scene where Chiwetel Ejiofor’s character secures a piece of the symbiote, suggesting a divergent path from the one fans have been eagerly awaiting. The film picks up immediately after the events of “No Way Home,” where the post-credits stirred hopes of a future encounter between the iconic characters. However, the new footage suggests those plans might be scrapped, leaving fans both confused and disappointed. “Everybody would love to see that. You never know someday… it might happen,”

Amy Pascal of Sony hinted in a previous interview with Fandango, as reported by Yahoo! News. Despite this, the latest developments and the official synopsis declaring this the final film in the trilogy seem to seal the fate of this potential blockbuster face-off.

“Movie Venom is also so much fun I can’t wait to see him and Tom Holland’s Spidey fight (sooner than you think),” tweeted an industry insider @MyTimeToShineH in October 2023. Though their reliability varies, such teasers suggest that Sony might still have cards to play in the Spider-Man Universe.
