Venom 2 Director Andy Serkis confirms Venom is not connected with MCU Spider-Man
Venom: Let There Be Carnage director Andy Serkis has confirmed in a recent interview that the film starring Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock is not connected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe or the MCU Spider-Man aka Tom Holland.
In an interview with IGN, Serkis states that Brock is unaware of Peter Parker’s existence. He did confirm that he did put little nods and easter eggs throughout the film for fans to discover.
Obviously, there are links between Venom and Spider-Man and the Marvel Universe and the Spider-Man story. We’re treating this very much as it’s his own world. The Venom story is his own world. There are nods and little moments [like the shot of the newspaper the Daily Bugle], of course, but on the whole, he’s unaware. They are unaware, at this point, of other characters like Spider-Man. So, that’s the way we’ve chosen to play this particular episode of the movie, but, well, we’ll wait and see. We’ll see what little things you can pick out of it.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage stars Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock/Venom, Woody Harrelson as Cletus Kasady/Carnage, Michelle Williams as Anne Weying, Reid Scott as Dr. Dan Lewis, Naomie Harris, Stephen Graham, Sean Delaney and Larry Olubamiwo.
