Tom Hardy Wants Venom to Cross Over into the Marvel Cinematic Universe

There's still no official world on whether Tom Hardy's Venom will ever meet Tom Holland's Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the Venom star would sure love to see it happen.

"There's a lot within the real estate that you can actually imbue with a complete sense of gratuity to sell to fans if you really wanted to, and I think you've got the right people for the job if you want to push it 'cause that's where I'd love to go with it," Hardy told MTV International. The Venom actor had some fun imagining his Lethal Protector taking on the MCU's version of Earth's Mightiest Heroes as well. "I'd like go through all the Avengers with him, but that's above my pay grade."

While Venom appears to be more violent than most MCU movies, Hardy said fans of any age can fall in love with the slithering symbiote. "To be fair, the thing can fulcrum into R-rated, it can fulcrum into youth. My littlest ones, they watch Spider-Man and Venom quite comfortably, and Venom toys appear."

If Hardy's Lethal Protector never joins the MCU, he's perfectly okay with that as well. "If not, we're more than happy to stand alone. We have a Venom-Verse and 900 characters to play with." Currently, Sony also has plans for Morbius, The Living Vampire and Kraven the Hunter in the upcoming Venom-Verse.

Debuting in theaters on Oct. 5, Venom is directed by Ruben Fleischer and stars Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock/Venom, Michelle Williams as Anne Weying, Riz Ahmed as Carlton Drake/Riot, Scott Haze, Reid Scott, Jenny Slate,Woody Harrelson, Sope Aluko, Scott Deckert, Marcella Bragio, Michelle Lee, Mac Brandt, Christian Convery, Sam Medina and Ron Cephas Jones.
