The craze around Spider-Man 4 is at this point unparalleled, and there is no confirmation that any other movie can even remotely come close to the anticipation this one is witnessing. The movie, which will be a follow-up to Spider-Man: No Way Home, has a massive responsibility not just to take the story ahead but also to create a new direction for Tom Holland’s Peter Parker. In the past few days, rumors have surrounded the project regarding who is directing, whether Holland returns, and how the studio will approach the beginning of this new trilogy. But now, as we move forward, and with the buzz that the makers may have found the director, there are also reports that they have finalized who the villain of the film will be.

Venom in Spider-Man 4?

If you remember well, which you of course do, at the end of Spider-Man: No Way Home, we see Tom Hardy make a cameo as Venom. In the next scene, we see him getting sucked into his timeline after the gates to the multiverse are closed. But then the camera pans to the table, and we see a piece of the symbiote being left in real-time. This creates a way for Venom to have his time in the future of the Spider-Man franchise. But if the latest reports are to be believed, Venom will indeed be in the fourth film, but wait, not as the main villain. Read on to know everything you should about this exciting update of the day.

According to the scooper My Time To Shine Hello, who has given some very substantial rumors in the recent past, Venom will indeed appear in the fourth Spider-Man film. But the twist is that he will not be the main villain in the film. However, there is no mention of Tom Hardy in the rumors, and that also means that this could just be the Venom symbiote, which will take over another host in the film.

However, theories have also suggested that the new host would be Peter Parker, and we might see the evil Spider-Man again in Spider-Man 4. There is no confirmation on either of the rumors, but they do sound exciting, and the studio will indeed have to address the piece of the symbiote left in real-time.

While Venom’s entry to the film did create a stir, another rumor that hit the mainstream yesterday was that the makers have found a filmmaker for Spider-Man 4. As per MCM Culture, the Marvel bosses have eyed Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah to direct the fourth film. The duo directed Ms. Marvel in the past and were appreciated for their work.
