Tom Hardy and Andy Serkis joke that no one wants a Venom and Spider-Man crossover film after the release of ‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’. Hardy is back in the sequel as Eddie Brock alongside his lovable symbiote, while Serkis is in the director's chair. The film co-stars Woody Harrelson as Cletus Kasady and Naomie Harris as Shriek, as well as Michelle Williams, who returns as Anne, Eddie Brock's former girlfriend.

‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’ opened yesterday and reviews are steadily streaming in for the new entry in the franchise, with some calling it "absurd, fun, silly and chaotic." It currently sits at 59% on Rotten Tomatoes, but with an audience score of 85%. The film has made $11.6 million thus far in Thursday night screenings and is likely to top the weekend, edging out the reigning champ for the last four weeks, Marvel's ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’.

In a new interview segment from MTV News (via ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Updates), star Tom Hardy is asked about a potential crossover between Tom Holland's ‘Spider-Man’ and ‘Venom’, to which the actor replies sarcastically that he can't imagine "anybody who would be remotely interested in seeing that." Hardy shares an immediate laugh with Serkis after, but later says the he's a fan of Holland's, although he doesn't know him that well and clarifies that they haven't sat down to discuss the possibility of a crossover. Still, Hardy says "it's something that, obviously, is always on the radar." 

  ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ releases in December and once again stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker/ ‘Spider-Man’. The film will feature at least one known villain from the previous Sony ‘Spider-Man’ films, Alfred Molina's ‘Doctor Octopus’. In addition, other former Spider-Man stars seem set to return, with J.K. Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson and Jamie Foxx as Electro both appearing in what looks to be a major multiverse crossover that will see characters from previous ‘Spider-Man’ incarnations mesh together in the MCU timeline. -Screen Rant
