  • Spider-Punk from Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse receives his own Venomized suit in new fan art, showcasing the connection between the Spider-Verse films and Sony's Spider-Man Universe.
  • The cameo of Venom in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse hints at a potential crossover between the Venom movies and Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse, allowing for live-action characters to join the Spider-Verse adventure.
  • The release of Venom 3 before Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse presents an opportunity for seamless integration of Eddie Brock/Venom into the upcoming film, especially given his knowledge of the multiverse. However, progress on Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse has been delayed.

Spider-Punk gets his own Venom Symbiote costume in new Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse fan art. Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse became one of 2023's biggest successes as Miles Morales and numerous Spider-Man variants conquered the big screen. One of the new characters who made his cinematic debut was Spider-Punk, voiced by Daniel Kaluuya, with his character coming from Earth-138.

Following Spider-Punk's big-screen arrival, Arkin Tyagi, who is a popular graphic designer and artist, has been reimagining the variants from Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse in their own Venomized suits. For his latest work, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse's Hobie Brown, a.k.a. Spider-Punk, became another Spider-Man variant to get his own What If...? scenario where he accepts the Symbiote.

The artwork is coming off the fact that Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse officially connected itself to Sony's Spider-Man Universe. Even though Venom never showed up, Spot did end up visiting Mrs. Chen from the Tom Hardy movies to show how the live-action properties are also connected to the Spider-Verse films.

Will The Venom Movies Cross Over With The Spider-Verse Series?

While it was a small cameo, the fact that Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse included the Venom movies could be foreshadowing a larger tie-in through Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse. From the little that is known about Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse, the threequel is speculated to potentially have more inclusion of live-action characters, hence the "Beyond" in the movie title. This would be the perfect opportunity to have Venom, out of all the Sony's Spider-Man Universe characters, finally take part in the Spider-Verse adventure.

Interestingly enough, Venom 3, which is coming out before Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse, is supposedly taking place right after Spider-Man: No Way Home, where Eddie Brock was briefly visiting Earth-199999. Assuming Venom 3 does wrap up Eddie's trilogy, it could easily lead directly into Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse whenever the film actually gets put on Sony's schedule again. With Eddie also being aware of the multiverse, including what he has learned from the Symbiote, having him in Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse would be the ideal timing at this point.

With that said, Sony actually has to get Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse made as progress has been delayed, and the movie is supposedly still in the very early stages of production. Once the Writers Guild of America and SAG-AFTRA strikes are officially over, Sony will likely do everything it can to get Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse back into production. Until then, the world can relive Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, which is out on streaming, as well as on Blu-Ray/DVD
