There have been a lot of rumours about the upcoming Venom movie, especially since the character Spider-Man has already appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so is unlikely to also appear in the new Venom film, due to it being a Sony project. However, that has not stopped the many rumours circulating that Tom Holland will make an appearance as Spider-Man in the Venom movie, especially since he was supposedly seen on the set of the film.
Anyway, we are not here to talk about Spider-Man, we are here to talk about the Venom movie and what we can expect to see Tom Hardy coming up against in the new film. There have already been plenty of rumours about which other Marvel characters we can expect to see appearing in Venom and which ones Tom will have to see his character facing off against.
Well, it looks like Tom Hardy could have his hands full in Venom, since it has been claimed that the Marvel character he will be facing off against will be Toxin, which makes sense since Spider-Man will not be in the film. Toxin is another major symbiotes character, who has been known to team up with Venom from time to time, but has also been known to be a good ally of Spider-Man, so it could definitely make for an interesting storyline.
It has been rumoured that Reid Scott will play the role of Patrick Mulligan in Venom, a character who becomes Toxin in the comic books. Could we see the two starting off as friends, before Toxin realises that Spider-Man is the way to go, leading to him and Venom turning on one another? Whatever direction they take it, we would love to see Venom and Toxin facing off in the new movie.
Venom is due to hit the big screen on October 5 in both the US and the UK.
