Venom and Spidey may very well meet on the big screen again, but even with as much potential as the clash could have, there are plenty of reasons why Far From Home is far from the right choice for another meeting between the two. Here's a look at the reasons why it probably won't happen.
Venom's obviously much darker of a character than Spider-Man. Eddie Brock wouldn't let his symbiote kill cops in Venom, but when it came to crooks, he had a more fluid moral compass. His solo film was PG-13 because the filmmakers left a lot to the audience's imagination, but make no mistake: He ate people.
Heroes kill bad guys in Marvel movies, sure. Hawkeye's transformation into Ronin in Avengers: Endgame was the darkest we've seen any of their heroes go, but even then, no hero in the MCU eats people.
With Disney's acquisition of Fox, there are likely a lot of conversations going on behind the scenes about content. For example, we know Disney is interested in more Deadpool movies and has pledged to not water him down for younger audiences, but it's doubtful he'll be part of the larger MCU anytime soon. Likewise, it will probably be a bit before Disney gives the thumbs up to superheroes who eat muggers.
One of the reasons Spider-Man and Venom's conflict worked in the comics is that Parker and Brock were in somewhat similar situations. They were roughly the same age, they were both journalists working for New York area newspapers, and, largely because of Brock's competitive nature, they were rivals. The movie situation isn't the same. In Venom, Eddie Brock is an established, adult, investigative journalist. Peter Parker hasn't graduated high school yet.
Imagining the MCU’s version of Peter fighting alongside someone like Venom is a little tough. In the trailer for Far from Home, he doesn't even want to talk to Nick Fury on the phone. He's intimidated by Fury — so would he really feel comfortable working with an oily pile of black slime that talks like a gargling demon? Unlikely.
