Tom Holland Reveals He Pitched Venom and Kraven Movies After Brief Sony/Marvel Split

There was a time when Spider-Man's stay in the MCU was over after the release of Spider-Man: Far from Home. Everyone was obviously sad about the news, but none was more upset than Spider-Man himself Tom Holland.

Per Screen Rant, in an interview with Empire Magazine, Holland revealed that he pitched some ideas about the future of his character to producer Amy Pascal back when Sony and Marvel Studios briefly split.

He said, "On the day that the announcement happened that I would no longer be in the MCU... I just drove over to Amy Pascal's house and sat with her by her pool, and we sat there for hours, just chatting, and pitching movies. How would we do a film without Marvel? Does Peter Parker fall through a portal, and then he's in the Venom world? Or do we do a Kraven the Hunter film? It was a nice distraction... because as a young kid I was so in love with Marvel, and I was so lucky to be a part of it that when they took the rug from under my feet, I was not ready to say goodbye yet."

Fortunately, as we all know, Marvel Studios and Sony were able to work things about and Spider-Man's stay in the MCU continues. Now, we have Spider-Man: No Way Home coming so soon in which it is expected to tackle the multiverse and feature some of the villains from the past Spider-Man films (as well as the former Spider-Men if the rumors are true). Also, in some way, Holland's pitch of having his character meet Venom might actually happen soon as hinted in the post-credits scene of Venom: Let There Be Carnage.


Today, the idea of Spider-Man not being in the MCU may be hard to imagine for most fans so we're all glad that things did work out in the end. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has also assured that the Sony/Marvel split may not happen again which could mean a brighter future for our friendly neighbor in the MCU.
