Marvel fans are now hyped up for the upcoming "Avengers: Infinity War" film. It is expected to be another showcasing of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's (MCU) greatest comic book heroes and villains, just like the first two "Avengers" installments and this year's "Captain America: Civil War." While many fans see the "Infinity War" movie as the official closing of Marvel Studios' "Phase 3" of movies, it can also be treated as the beginning of new ideas in the next feature films to come.
As reported by Comic Book Movie, some fans are having theories that "Avengers: Infinity War" will introduce the classic Spider-Man villain Venom, or the black alien symbiote that makes anyone it contacts to unleash his or her evil side. It is rumored that Marvel's version of the "Spider-Man" film series will also involve Venom, but the only question is when will the villain appear in the MCU.
With this rumor keeping the fans abuzz, "Avengers: Infinity War" co-director Anthony Russo shed some light. "Well, it was during the original 'Secret Wars' that the wall-crawler came across an alien suit which he was able to replace his destroyed costume with, and if Peter Parker is heading into outer space with the rest of The Avengers in 'Infinity War,' it would make sense for him to encounter the symbiote during this adventure," Russo said in an interview via Comic Book Movie.
However, as noted in a report by Yibada, Sony has their own plans to create a Venom spin-off movie on their own. Even though Marvel Studios also has control of the "Spider-Man" film franchise, it still needs to confirm if it also has the authority to use the character.
Nevertheless, "Avengers: Infinity War" is expected to be another mega blockbuster hit from the Marvel Studios. Many fans will be interested to know how a huge part of the Marvel film series will end, and at the same time knowing how the succeeding films in MCU will begin, specifically the upcoming "Spider-Man" films.
"I can't get into too much detail about who we're introducing, but these two movies are intended to be the culmination of everything that has happened in the MCU since the very first Iron Man movie," Russo revealed in an interview with IGN. "In being a culmination, these movies are in some ways going to be an end to certain things, and in some ways, they're going to be the beginning of certain things."
