Spiderman’s arch nemesis, “Venom” is back. The black Spider-Man slash alien symbiote which needs its host in order to survive was reported by Sony to have its own film. Of course, questions have been undeniably raised by the Spiderman franchise fans.
According to THR, “Venom” will grace the movie screens on Oct. 5, 2018, after DC movie “Aquaman” vacated the spot and moved to Dec. 18, 2018. Sony had also announced that its “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” sequel, “The Girl in the Spider’s Web” which is scheduled for Oct. 5, 2015, to be moved to Oct. 19, 2018, as well paving way for “Venom” film.
Speaking of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Cosmic Book News reported that Marvel Studios wasn’t reported to be involved in the “Venom” franchise. Yet, whether the film to be a spin-off for “Spider-Man: Homecoming” or not wasn’t yet cleared. Also, whether the film of the black Spider-Man to be a spin-off or a standalone franchise isn’t still yet explained and revealed.
Yet, it was suggested that if “Venom” should be introduced in Tom Holland’s upcoming movie, “Spider-Man: Homecoming” which is coming on July 7, 2017. The film would then be needed to be featured in “Avengers: Infinity War” as well. Due to its outer space setting and Venom’s alien symbiotic nature, “Venom” would seem fit. It was then mentioned as well that a “Venom” franchise would hype up fans as it has a chance to introduce Carnage as well.
The publication then noted that the downside of Sony’s “Venom” film is its writers. Since Alex Kurtzman and Jeff Pinkner who were in charge of the previous “Amazing Spider-Man 2,” some fans weren’t pleased with the outcome. But, it was stated that if Sony would learn from its mistakes, “Venom” could be a success.
Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach were also reported to produce the “Venom” movie. On the bright side, regarding the Alex Kurtzman to write the film was debunked by the ERC Box Office in a tweet to not be involved anymore.
Eddie Brock played by actor Topher Grace, Venom made his first appearance in the previous “Spider-Man 3” film.
Watch out, Spider-man. VENOM is now part of the release calendar web as Sony has slated the Spidey spinoff for October 5, 2018.
