Spider-Man and Venom, a legendary symbols of arch-rival. If DC has Batman and Joker, Marvel has Spiderman x Venom, fans of these two characters get excited every time they see them together. Their battles are shown to be extremely intense from the comics to their appearances in Spider-Man: The Animated Series, playing an important role in Sony’s Spider-Man 3 and most recently in the Spider-Man movie. A brief appearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). It’s time to untangle the web and look back at the complex connection between Spider-Man and Venom in the comics and the movies.
SPIDERMAN X VENOM
1. SPIDER-MAN AND VENOM IN COMICS
The story of Spiderman x Venom begins in Secret Wars #8. During this event, Marvel’s greatest heroes and villains were sent to the fictitious planet ‘Battleworld,’ where they battled for the entertainment of an entity known as the Beyonder. Spider-Man’s suit was destroyed, and he was dispatched to obtain a replacement from a machine that weaved new garments.
Peter was anxious about what this enigmatic substance was capable of. He begged Reed Richards (Mister Fantastic) to assist him because it was giving him nightmares, manipulating him in his sleep, and forcing him into aggressive tendencies. The new black outfit is an alien symbiote that is actively attempting to become one with Peter Parker, according to The Amazing Spider-Man #258 from November 1984. Peter, understandably, is horrified and attempts to pull the outfit from his body. The only problem is that the alien suit refuses to depart. The Fantastic Four understands that the symbiote is allergic to loud noises and creates an atmosphere that compels it to become defenseless.

A year later, in Web of Spider-Man #1, the alien symbiote reappears and re-attaches itself to Spidey, who is emotionally fragile as a result of his breakup with the Black Cat and his tumultuous relationship with Aunt May. Desperate to get rid of the suit once more, he goes to Reed’s for assistance. However, this obnoxious extraterrestrial reads Peter’s mind and deliberately prevents him from going there. Peter remembers the creature’s sensitivity to sound thanks to the ringing of a distant church bell and makes his way to the church. The deafening sounds of the church bells bring Peter to the point of death, but it’s worth it since the alien costume dissolves off of him, and escapes. After that, the symbiote imported Eddie Brock and used him as a host. Finally, in The Amazing Spider-Man #300, we get Venom’s first full appearance.
Then there were Amazing Spider-Man #299-300, Amazing Spider-Man #347, and Amazing Spider-Man #375. Spiderman x Venom are always at odds with one another. Venom employs a variety of methods to exact revenge on Spidey, such as manipulating Mary Janes or kidnapping Peter’s parents.
2. SPIDER-MAN AND VENOM IN MOVIES
The Spider-Man family of characters is officially owned by Sony, but the rest of the Marvel collection is held by…well, Marvel. So, Marvel Studios and Sony agreed to share Spider-Man, but Venom is still solely owned by Sony. To bring them together, a universe-altering whoopsie was required. Due to those reasons, it seems that the relationship between Spidey and Venom is not depicted very clearly.
Spiderman x Venom appeared on the same screen for the first time in Spider-Man 3 in 2007. What transpired in the film differed little from the original account. Peter Parker plans to propose to Mary Jane Watson, who has just made her Broadway musical debut. While both meteors were in Central Park, a meteor landed nearby and an extraterrestrial symbiote followed Peter to his apartment by attaching to his motorcycle. When Peter sleeps in his suit in his apartment, the symbiote absorbs the suit. Peter awakens on the roof of a skyscraper, realizing that the symbiote has turned his suit black and improved his powers, but it has also brought out darker aspects of his psyche. Peter discovers the symbiote is corrupting him after fighting the bouncers and accidentally hitting Mary Jane. Peter removes the symbiote after retreating to a church’s bell tower and learns that the sounds of striking metal weaken the creature. Brock, who attends the same church, is chosen as the symbiote’s new host. Then we were treated to the most magnificent battle on screen at the time, between Spider-Man and the villains, primarily Venom.
In the years since we’ve seen a lot of changes between Sony and Marvel. As Spider-Man began to participate in the MCU’s Civil War event – Avengers: Civil War – (2016). Then came Spidey films like Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) and Spider-Man: Far From Home (2017). (2019). However, Sony remains competitive by continuing to develop Venom with its films such as Venom (2018) and Venom: Let There Be Carnage (2021).
Then, over 15 years later, Venom makes an appearance in a Spider-Man film, Spider-Man: No Way Home. Although it is only a little piece, this is fantastic news for fans of both Spider-Man and Venom. We’ve finally seen what we’ve been waiting for: Venom has been incorporated into Marvel’s cinematic universe. Because of what happened in Spider-Man: No Way Home and spoilers for The Amazing Spider-Man 3, we will almost certainly have another great movie, satisfied both in content and image with the appearance of Spiderman x Venom on the same screen. Let’s wait and see!
All in all, Venom has evolved into one of Spider-Man’s most merciless enemies, regularly bringing him close to death and creating the most anticipated Spiderman x Venom pairing. Venom has evolved into something of an anti-hero, grappling with his principles and even battling for the greater good alongside Spider-Man. For varying lengths of time, the extraterrestrial symbiote has hooked onto a plethora of individuals, including Mac Gargan (previously known as the villain Scorpion), Peter’s high school bully Flash Thompson, Red Hulk, Ms. Marvel, and Rocket Raccoon.
