That's right, in a surprise move, it has been revealed that Sony will release their Spider-Man spin-off Venom movie next year! Over a year ago, back in March of 2016 we reported that the Venom movie had finally entered production but since then, very little word was spoken of the project. On Thursday, Sony announced Venom will hit theaters October 5th, 2018!
Currently the film lacks a director and cast but the script, recently tuned by Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner, is complete. THR reports that Sony are looking to create a franchise with Venom, meaning a series dedicated to the Symbiotic anti-hero.
The Venom movie will not be related to Spider-Man: Homecoming, either.
