Amy Pascal has hinted that Spider-Man may make an appearance in the upcoming Venom movie after Sony previously denied any overlap.

The producer recently sat alongside Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige for an interview with website Filmstarts, during which Pascal appeared to suggest actor Tom Holland may appear as his web-slinging hero in the movie based on his enemy Venom, to be played by Tom Hardy.

The villain has only appeared on the silver screen once in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3, where he was played by Topher Grace.

"Both movies will all take place in the world that we're now creating for Peter Parker," Pascal explained, referring to features Venom and also Silver and Black, characters who also stem from the Spider-Man stories. "They'll be adjuncts to it. There may be different locations, but it will still all be in the same world and they will be connected to each other."

Quizzed on whether this means there's a chance Holland will appear in the spin-off flick based on his opponent, she mused, "There's always a chance. I think one of the things that Kevin has done with Marvel that's so brilliant, is bringing the fans along, and making each movie feel like a chapter in a book. That you have to read that chapter in order to go forward. And I think the investment that fans get to feel in being part of a larger story and understanding what's happening, is something that I know Sony would want to emulate."

While many Marvel fans are excited by Pascal's comments, others have questioned them as earlier this month (Jun17) Feige insisted Venom isn't to be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

It was also previously announced by Sony that the three projects in question are to be a part of a standalone universe unrelated to Marvel, with Spider-Man: Homecoming director Jon Watts backing this up by saying, "It's not connected to the Marvel world. I don't know anything about it. It's not connected, so there's not that overlap."
