Marvel fans have been dying to see a "proper" live-action showdown between Spider-Man and Venom but for the longest time, Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures' partnership has prevented it from happening. However, there's a huge possibility that it could finally happen after Venom: Let There Be Carnage and according to director Andy Serkis himself, it's bound to happen one way or another.

Serkis recently caught up with the good folks over at IGN and naturally, the Avengers: Age of Ultron and Black Panther star was asked whether or not Eddie Brock will ever come face-to-face with Peter Parker. Shockingly enough, the director confirmed that Spider-Man will cross over to Sony's shared universe but he didn't exactly reveal when. He said: "Look, that's the question on everyone's lips. They want to know if Venom is gonna meet Spider-Man, but personally, it's never gonna happen. I'm only joking, of course, it's gonna happen..."

Sure, Serkis didn't exactly say which version of the character it will be but Tom Holland is under a lucrative Sony contract so you'll just have to connect the dots on this one. Also, there have been serious rumblings over the last couple of months that the actor could leave the MCU for good to jump ship to Sony's own Spidey universe.

Personally, I'd like to see them renew and extend their partnership with Marvel Studios because the whole multiverse thing will be a great opportunity for characters from both franchises to crossover from one film universe to another. And let's be honest, the MCU will feel incomplete without our favorite web-slinger.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage is currently scheduled for release on October 15, 2021.
