Spider-Man: No Way Home concept artist Thomas du Crest has shared their own personal take on what Tom Holland’s Spider-Man could look like donning a Venom suit.
ComicBook.com spotted the post from du Crest, which offered fans the opportunity to glimpse “a small take on what might come next.” Whilst it’s by no means an official tease, the tweet boasts four images of Holland’s Spider-Man donning a black suit, imagining what he might look like if he were to bond with the Venom symbiote. Check out the artwork below:

du Crest has created concept artworks and illustrations for numerous Marvel projects, including Spider-Man: Far From Home, Avengers: Endgame, and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Additionally, du Crest worked on Venom: Let There Be Carnage, crafting concept designs for the Ravencroft Institute, under the direction of Oliver Scholl.
No Way Home’s mid-credits scene featured none other than Venom. Eddie found himself pulled back into his universe from the MCU, leaving behind a small piece of the Venom symbiote in the process. This potentially gives rise to a crossover between Spider-Man and Venom as it seems likely this new symbiote will track down, and bond with, Peter Parker.
Such an interaction could lead to the black costume saga where Peter wears the alien symbiote and dons his iconic black suit. In the comics, the alien suit gave Spider-Man enhanced powers but also brought out his darker side, leading Peter to shed the suit to save his humanity. Now, however, we might see Venom’s spawn create the black-suit Spider-Man.

Holland has already explained how his three solo Spider-Man films formed an arc that began with Homecoming, continued with Far From Home, and is now concluded with No Way Home, so what comes next will be something new — and it certainly seems like Spider-Man’s MCU future will be very different from what we’ve seen up until now.
