Spider-Man: No Way Home star Tom Holland has revealed that Tom Hardy visited the set of Venom: Let There Be Carnage to shoot that movie's post-credits scene, but could there be another reason he was there?

There wasn't so much as a single mention of Spider-Man in Venom: Let There Be Carnage, but the mid-credits scene changed that by bringing Eddie Brock into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Seemingly teleported into that world from Sony's Spider-Man Universe by whatever spell Doctor Strange casts in Spider-Man: No Way Home, Venom seemed very interested in tracking down Peter Parker.

He is a Lethal Protector now, of course, so likely wants to take a bite out of the web-slinger for seemingly murdering Mysterio and attacking London with Stark Industries drones. 

Whether that clash happens remains to be seen, but Tom Holland dropped a very interesting piece of intel during a recent interview with Cinema Blend. "I was on set, Amy Pascal came over to me and had a conversation about it," he said of his Venom: Let There Be Carnage cameo. "I was very excited. Tom Hardy came to set only a few days later to film his side of the Venom tag."

This could have been a result of the pandemic, but it's definitely interesting that Hardy was on the set of Spider-Man: No Way Home. Why? Well, we can't help but wonder whether the actor shot something else while he was there, potentially for the upcoming Marvel Studios threequel. 

It would certainly make sense to pick up with some Venom in some way here, especially if Eddie is going to be a permanent addition to the MCU in time for Venom 3 or Spider-Man 4. There's been no sign of the anti-hero in the movie's trailers, but if he is the sixth member of that villainous team, then it's not like Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios would necessarily ruin the surprise in advance. 

Spider-Man: No Way Home arrives in U.S. on December 17 and in the UK on December 15.
