Ruben Fleischer says he can’t comment on whether or not Spider-man is in Venom…

September 3rd, 2018 by Marc Comments

Oh, boy… here we go again.

So we’ve speculated for ages about how the Sony Marvel Universe that kick off next month with Venom will be connected to the MCU (here) and only a couple of weeks ago it was revealed that the previously touted as being gory and adult as heck Venom would be toned down to allow for the hope that some day the MCU characters would eventually meet with Venom and friends, especially Spider-man (here).

And now this.

In a new interview Zombieland and Venom director Ruben Fleischer was asked outright if Spider-man would be in Venom and, rather than the expected ‘nope’ he got a little more creative.

“I honestly don’t know what I’m allowed to say,” he replied.

“I mean, I know the answer — I’ve seen the movie. But I don’t want to get in trouble for saying something I’m not supposed to.”

Now, sure, he could be toying with us… and most likely is… but honestly, I think I’ll be disappointed if Spidey ISN’T in the movie.

We all know that Tom Holland was on the set of Venom a while ago (here) and we also know that so long as there’s a Venom then the fans will want him to be connected to Spider-man… and the MCU as a whole and with talk earlier of Blade possibly heading to the MCU soon (we’ll believe it when we see it)  we reckon that there’s numerous ways to tie it all together…

We’ll all know on October 5th.

Thoughts on Venom and Spider-man meeting next month? let us know.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
