When Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters next week, it will introduce a whole slew of new characters into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Many of those supporting characters have some sort of superpowered counterpart - and one Homecoming actor hopes to bring his to life.
Tony Revolori (Dope, The Grand Budapest Hotel) plays Peter's high school nemesis, Eugene 'Flash' Thompson, in the film. And in a recent interview with Inverse, he expressed interest in playing an older version of Flash down the line - particularly as Agent Venom.
"If there was an Agent Venom movie, of course, I would love to do it." Revolori revealed. "Hopefully they tap me if they ever actually go that route."
For the uninitiated, the Agent Venom storyline began during Flash's time in the army, when experiments with Project Rebirth 2.0 led to him bonding with the evil Venom symbiote. Unlike its previous host, Flash learned to control the symbiots, going on to use its powers as a member of the Secret Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy.
While there is no indication that Agent Venom will actually arrive in the MCU, Revolori's interest is certainly worth noting. He isn't the only Homecoming cast member to want to portray their character's alter ego, with Laura Harrier recently endorsing her character Liz Allen becoming Firestar.

Young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
The cast includes Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, with Marisa Tomei, and Robert Downey Jr. It also includes Jon Favreau, Martin Starr, Kenneth Choi, Michael Mando, Selenis Leyva, Isabella Amara, Jorge Lendeborg, Jr., JJ Totah, and Hannibal Buress.
