Tom Holland’s Peter Parker Will Appear in Venom, Not Spider-Man

Tom Holland was in fact filming scenes on the Venom set, but as Peter Parker, not Spider-Man.


Tom Holland is rumored to make an appearance in Venom, but only as Peter Parker, not Spider-Man. According to Jon Schnepp in an episode of Collider Heroes, Holland filmed for at least two days on the set of Venom to make his cameo possible. But, Holland’s presence doesn’t mean audiences will see Spider-Man in the anti-hero’s movie. According to Schnepp, Holland will appear only as Peter Parker, meaning he will not suit up. Here is exactly what he said:

Tom Holland was on set filming scenes on Venom for at least two days as Peter Parker. Okay, so I’m not saying Spider-Man is in the film. When I say Tom Holland’s Spider-Man is in the film, I’m saying Peter Parker is in the film.

Schnepp’s clarification follows yesterday’s report, in which he said that “All I’m saying is that Spider-Man, and I’m talking about Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, is going to be in Venom.” This new claim does provide a bit of clarification regarding the young actor’s involvement in the Spider-Man spinoff flick. If Holland does indeed show his face in Venom, then it begs the huge question as to whether the film does actually exist inside of the MCU, a conundrum that has been ongoing since the movie was announced.

Along with the Spider-Man/Peter Parker news yesterday, Tom Hardy seemingly confirmed that Carnage is the main villain in Venom, after the actor posted some Carnage artwork on his Instagram page, before deleting it shortly thereafter. There were previously rumors that Riz Ahmed's character was Carnage, but the actor was spotted on the set last month, and just from his costume alone, it was clear he wasn't playing Carnage. Instead, another report revealed that the actor is playing Dr. Carlton Drake, leader of the Life Foundation, who wants to tap into the symbiote attached to Eddie Brock. Michelle Williams also recently confirmed that she is playing Anne Weying, a lawyer and ex-wife to Eddie Brock, who, in the comics, becomes She-Venom, a.k.a. The Bride of Venom.

Directed by Ruben Fleischer from a script by Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg, Venom stars Tom Hardy, Jenny Slate, Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed. The film arrives Oct. 5, 2018.
