UPDATE: ‘Venom’ Will Feature Tom Holland As Peter Parker, And Not As Spider-Man

Tom Holland will reportedly appear in Venom as Peter Parker, and not as Spider-Man, as it was reported earlier.

Scheduled to release later this year, many believed that Sony’s Venom would not take off in the first place. The film, as we know now is very much happening with Tom Hardy playing the title role of Eddie Brock/Venom.

Following a statement made by scooper Jon Schnepp on a recent episode of Collider Movie Talk, rumors were gaining ground that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man will be seen in Venom. However, Schnepp has now made it clear that it is not Spider-Man, but Peter Parker who will appear in the film.

In a new episode of Collider Heroes, while saying that Holland shot for two days on the set of Venom, he added that his presence in the film does not indicate that the audience will get to see Spider-Man in the anti-hero movie. This is what Schnepp had to say:

“Tom Holland was on set filming scenes on Venom for at least two days as Peter Parker. Okay, so I’m not saying Spider-Man is in the film. When I say Tom Holland’s Spider-Man is in the film, I’m saying Peter Parker is in the film.”

This is yet to be confirmed by Marvel or Sony. It will be interesting nevertheless to see how Peter becomes involved. Fans are speculating that the Symbiote will be brought back to earth by Spider-Man after incidents in Avengers: Infinity War. That is possible considering that this will help Sony to connect the films, without having to bother about interfering with the MCU timeline.

Tom Hardy was recently seen shooting for a scene in Venom where his character Eddie Brock has to battle with his own body as he tries to control himself.

For initiators, here is the story:

Since Venom is a Symbiote, it needs to connect to a human for its survival. After bonding with Eddie, he becomes Spider-Man’s archenemy.

The film also stars Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Jenny Slate, Reid Scot, and Scott Haze. Venom, directed by Ruben Fleischer is scheduled to hit the theaters on October 5th, 2018.
