Tom Holland’s Spider-Man to Appear in Venom?

https://movieweb.com/venom-movie-spider-man-cameo-tom-holland/

Coming from Collider’s Movie Talk

“Spider-Man is going to be in Venom. For the last couple of months, we’ve been hearing how Sony is keeping it all separated, and Spider-Man is in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but every other character that’s in the Spider-Man universe is separate. All I’m saying is that Spider-Man, and I’m talking about Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, is going to be in Venom.”
