Following much fan speculation that Holland’s Spider-Man would perhaps be involved in Tom Hardy’s “Venom,” Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige shot down those rumors, speaking with Variety at the “Spider-Man: Homecoming” world premiere on Wednesday night in Hollywood, Calif.

“No,” Feige promptly responded when asked if Spider-Man will appear in “Venom.”

He continued, “No, I think the folks there are making a great ‘Venom’ movie and I don’t know much about it, but I know they’re off to a good start with Tom Hardy.”

“Venom” will star Hardy as the central character and will be directed by Ruben Fleischer. The film is the start of Sony working to build its extended “Spider-Man” universe. The movie is expected to be released in 2018.
