Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse will hit theatres in less than a week. The film will explore the multiverse of the spider world, also known as the Spider-Verse. In Across the Spider-Verse, one of the most iconic Spider-Man villains, Spot, will be the main antagonist in this movie. He has the power to travel through the multiverse through the dark spots on his body.
In one of the recently released TV spots for the film, it was revealed that Spot will also appear in Venom’s live-action universe. Venom is not directly connected to the Spider-Verse, but he does have a history with Spider-Man, both in the movies and in the comics. The latest TV spot all but confirms that Tom Hardy’s Venom will interact with Spider-Man for the first time in the film.
The Return of Venom in Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse
A newly released TV spot for Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse shows Venom showing up at Mrs. Chen’s shop. The annoyed Mrs. Chen, who has had experiences like this in the past, asks him, “What do you want?”
The spot takes mints from her stand and declares, “I am robbing you because I am a bad guy,” accompanied by an eye roll from Mrs. Chen. You can watch the full TV spot below.
The TV spot was made from unused footage from Venom: Let There Be Carnage and a few scenes from the film. The first shots of the TV spot are taken directly from Venom 2 when Anne enters the shop.
Does Venom really appear in the movie?
The question might have crossed your mind while reading this story. However, you’ll be disappointed to learn that the chances of this being the case are nil. The scene shown in the TV spot will probably be the only scene from the Venom universe in Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse. In the meantime, it’s also possible that this is just a marketing stunt to get fans even more excited about the film. Fans will probably have to wait for Venom 3 to see Venom interact with Spider-Man for the first time in the MCU.
