John Krasinski To Play Peter Parker In Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse

As you surely know, there’s quite a lot going on with the Spider-Man property right now. Of course, Peter Parker himself is swinging around the Marvel Cinematic Universe with his next appearance set to be in Avengers: Infinity War. Beyond that, though, we’ve also got some stuff coming down the pipeline from Sony. Namely, Venom and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

The latter has been making headlines lately with some interesting reports, and though it’s still pretty far off, the project is certainly shaping up to be something that Spidey fans are going to want to check out. And that’s because after hearing that Tom Hardy may swing by to voice Venom in the pic (it’s unclear if it’ll be just as a fun easter egg, or if there’s actually some kind of connection between Into the Spider-Verse and Eddie Brock’s standalone outing

Tom Hardy’s Venom May Cameo In Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse

Now here’s a strange rumor…

As you surely know, there’s quite a lot going on with the Spider-Man property right now. Of course, Peter Parker himself is swinging around the Marvel Cinematic Universe with his next appearance set to be in Avengers: Infinity War. Beyond that, though, we’ve also got some stuff coming down the pipeline from Sony. Namely, Venom and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

From what we understand though, there’s not set to be any kind of connection between the two. After all, the latter is animated while the former is live-action. Not to mention that Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who are working on Into the Spider-Verse, have already confirmed that it’ll be its own thing. Apparently, though, that may not be entirely true.

A new report from Fandom Wire tells us that Venom will actually appear in the film and, get this,
