Following the release of the first trailer for Venom: The Last Dance, star Tom Hardy took part in an interview with Forbes, and the actor had some interesting things to say about Sony Pictures' "SSU" and the fact that Spider-Man has yet to show up in the franchise.

Hardy began by sharing his excitement for what is being marketed as the final solo Venom movie.

“This one - I’m so, so excited about because we’ve gone much bigger. Kelly [Marcel] and I have been working with Tom Rothman and Sanford [Panitch] and their Sony team for 7-8 years now. We started off - like, initially, [Venom] was just Eddie Brock and nobody knew what we were going to do. Then the second [film, Venom: Let There Be Carnage] - we wrote the second one, we pitched it, got to direct it, put the team together on that - that was huge! That was a huge university of learning.”

The actor went on to comment on how the movies have been perceived, in part due to the lack of a certain Friendly Neighbourhood Wall-Crawler.

"People were going to judge us, you know? Marvel Universe under [Kevin] Feige’s management is doing so well. Spider-Man has gone to Feige’s camp at Marvel. We have one [at Sony]! To me and Kelly, it’s so important to pour in everything that we can to build on that opportunity. So by the third one now, Kelly is directing it, she’s writing - I’m attached to it at the hip and shoulder, like whatever you need, we’ll figure it out.”

Does "one" refer to a camp or Spider-Man? We're not too sure, but the Internet has run with the latter. Could this mean that The SSU will eventually introduce Andrew Garfield's take on Peter Parker? Previous rumors have claimed that this was once the plan for Madame Web prior to a major overhaul of the script.

Or, is he implying that Venom is the Spider-Man of the SSU? This would suggest that Hardy plans on sticking around as Eddie Brock for a while longer, even if The Last Dance is the final instalment in this trilogy.

The article also notes that The Last Dance "could possibly" receive an R rating. Hardy doesn't confirm anything, but does say that they were allowed to "push it" with this third film.

“By the third one, we’ve been given so much creative support to do - to push it. It’s a much wider piece and there’s much more love - not that there was not love in the last ones. We’ve been allowed to put more of our ideas into it and I’m really excited to see how they land.”

What do you think Hardy meant? Drop us a comment down below.

“Eddie and Venom are on the run," reads the synopsis. "Hunted by both their worlds and with net closing in, the duo are forced into a devastating decision that will bring the curtain down on Venom and Eddie’s last day”

Are you looking forward to our first look at Venom: The Last Dance?

He’s just saying Sony has Venom as their “Spider-Man” that they’ve been lucky to get a trilogy out of.

I read it as camp.
RitoRevolto - 6/4/2024, 2:39 PM
Do they? Why haven't they used him while making all these useless spinoffs starring Spider-Man villains?
braunermegda - 6/4/2024, 2:50 PM
@RitoRevolto - because what he means is venom is sony's spider-man on terms of IP.
RitoRevolto - 6/4/2024, 2:52 PM
@braunermegda - That's terrible. Wonder what they'll do now that their "Sony Spider-Man" is about to end.
braunermegda - 6/4/2024, 3:11 PM
@RitoRevolto - they'll milk another one. I think they're shooting everywhere, madame web, morbius, kraven, el Puerto, they're throwing everything at the wall expecting some will stick
RitoRevolto - 6/4/2024, 4:55 PM
@braunermegda - They've only gotten lucky with Venom though. How many times can they waste money before they finally stop?
LeonNova - 6/4/2024, 2:45 PM
My expectations are in the dirt and the trailer didn’t do much to win me over. We’ll see if they can prove me wrong. If not I hope this really is the end of this garbage franchise.

he was pretty cool NGL and his motive was spot on.

Jesus Christ…he’s not talking about Spiderman, people. He’s clearly talking about a “cinematic universe”.

You dudes seriously try to milk every little bit of nonsense out of any “news” that drops.

@BruceWayng - yes, he is, but doesn't change the fact that they have spider-man, and actually two,so go figure, lol.
ObserverIO - 6/4/2024, 2:58 PM
Another SPUMC movie, another promotional campaign teasing Spider-Man.
Only for there to be no Spider-Man. Again.
Rinse and repeat for Kraven.
MartianManHuntr - 6/4/2024, 3:15 PM
They should have turned venom into a hero where symbiosis is slowly corrupting both of them. May be have him go against kraven and others in these spunk or whatever name this universe has. By last film have your own sinister six with a full on villain venom.

That would be something.
BackwardGalaxy - 6/4/2024, 7:18 PM
@MartianManHuntr - yeah, a fan film
JohnShaft - 6/4/2024, 3:17 PM
PERSONALLY IMO I don't think Tom Hardy has been paying attention to the MCU lately or he wouldn't have said Marvel Studios is doing " SO WELL". Also I thought SONY would have grabbed the rights to KINGPIN because he Is a main character in the SPIDERMAN Universe in which SONY has the rights to. VENOM as a character is actually BETTER in the SONYVERSE because at this point the MCU isn't sure WTF they're doing with all the characters they DO have
BackwardGalaxy - 6/4/2024, 7:19 PM
@JohnShaft - The MCU knows exactly what they're doing. You just don't like it.
Deckacards - 6/4/2024, 3:20 PM
WHAT the end of the movie, when Venom is telling Eddie "it's time" in the trailer, he means time to separate...but then the symbiote ends up staying on Earth...finds Andrew Garfield's Spider-man...and bonds with him?

Then, Venom vs. Spider-man is filmed showing Black Costume Spidey and Eddie trying to get the symbiote back for half the movie, then Spidey rejecting the symbiote and it returning to Eddie to become the spurned Venom we know that spends the rest of the film hunting Spidey's loved ones for revenge.

Then final battle is Spidey vs. Venom.

Word salad.

I'm hoping Danny Devito's Man-Spider kicks Hardy's face in
TheLobster - 6/4/2024, 3:51 PM
… and he’s 5! So cool!

[frick]ing SONY smh
TheVisionary25 - 6/4/2024, 4:12 PM
It seems more like to me that he’s saying Marvel has their own camp with Spidey and Sony has their own in which both are doing what they want with those character rather then saying the latter have their own version of the wall-crawler.

Regardless , Venom is pretty much the face of this dud of a universe anyway so he is the premeire “hero”.

It is cool how genuinely invested Hardy seems to be , especially as him & his team have gotten more control over this franchise so good for him & it’s fans atleast.
HulkisHoly - 6/4/2024, 4:49 PM
I don’t know how or why Hardy has so much love for these films. It must be the paycheck and freedom he gets. Cuz you know it ain’t the quality of the films.
JustAWaffle - 6/4/2024, 4:56 PM
Baby Peter Parker doesn’t count
rkshuttleworth - 6/4/2024, 5:35 PM
Maybe he just meant Venom
MarvelZombie616 - 6/4/2024, 5:35 PM
Tom Hardy is a tool.

Also tjis is trackig to be the lowest entry in the franchise.
BackwardGalaxy - 6/4/2024, 7:22 PM
Tom Hardy made an unholy pact with the Devil and CARRIED the first two films. Here's hoping he can stick the landing.
Toxin2480 - 6/4/2024, 11:04 PM
At least they created the PlayStation
DemonTweeks - 6/5/2024, 5:29 AM
agent venom incoming at the end of this movie
Hadleyhope - 6/5/2024, 4:59 PM
Venom left a little of himself at an alternative ending in the tiki restaurant before vanishing again so it will know Eddie Brock and restart a whole new series there. And whatever multiverse Brock & venom ended up at will be like Dr strange multiverse and will be an expendable evil Spiderman and possible other characters that will be slain before this venom and Brock goes out with a bang.
