Fans of everyone’s friendly neighborhood Spider-Man have been in the middle of quite the game of he-said-she-said over the course of the past few days. When asked at a press junket whether Tom Holland’s Peter Parker would be appearing in Sony’s Venom movie, Sony executive Amy Pascal offered a coy “couldn’t say” comment, leading one to believe that the discussion was at least happening somewhere in the background.
Now, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige — the mastermind behind the Marvel Cinematic Universe — has put an immediate stop to all of that Spidey talk. According to Feige, Spider-Man will not be appearing in Venom.
“No,” Feige told Variety when asked whether Spidey would appear in Venom. “No, I think the folks there are making a great Venom movie and I don’t know much about it, but I know they’re off to a good start with Tom Hardy.”
You heard it from the man himself, Spidey fans — Peter Parker won’t be appearing in the Venom movie, which is currently slated to begin production later this fall in anticipation of a 2018 release.
