However, Topher Grace’s portrayal of Venom in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 marked a significant moment for Spider-Man fans. It was the first time the iconic character had been brought to life in a live-action film. Grace’s rendition of Eddie Brock and his transformation into Venom was eagerly anticipated, and while it was a noteworthy addition to the film, some fans had mixed feelings about the portrayal.

Since the dawn of the MCU, Spider-Man’s cinematic journey has been a rollercoaster ride. The character’s custody has been shared, allowing him to swing between the two cinematic universes. Sony, in parallel, embarked on its own cinematic universe, carving out a niche that focused on classic Spider-Man allies and adversaries, thus diversifying the Spider-Verse. This venture gained momentum in 2018 with the release of Venom. Although the film garnered mixed critical reviews, it proved to be a formidable force at the box office. The success of Venom paved the way for a sequel, aptly titled Venom: Let There Be Carnage, which was greenlit with unprecedented haste.
