Fans have been waiting a long time for another crossover between Spider-Man and Venom. Although it's unclear just when the two might meet again on the big-screen considering the relative separateness of Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures' films, Cletus Kasady/Carnage might just be the key to bringing the two together.
In the comics, Carnage is a force of pure brutality and is focused mainly on killing and sowing destruction. Both Venom and Spider-Man aren't really able to defeat Carnage on their own, which leads them to team-up to prevent the monster from killing J. Jonah Jameson at Madison Square Garden. Spider-Man plays on Venom's desire to be a hero, but even together Carnage proves a deadly threat. They do eventually win, but it does require teamwork.
Check out the video below for more reasons Spider-Man and Venom might need to work together to defeat Carnage.
Actor Tom Hardy previously said he wants his Venom to cross over into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Spider-Man actor Tom Holland has also said he wants to take on Venom. Despite the hopes of both actors, there's no indication such a crossover will happen anytime soon. However, if Venom does enter the MCU, that might have major ramifications for Sony's spinoff film universe, which will get a new installment next year in the form of Morbius. There are also plans for a currently-untitled sequel to Venom for release in 2020 and films focused on other Spider-Man characters.
