VENOM Movie Coming From Sony - Not A Joke!

Sony has tapped Dante Harper to pen a script for Venom, something that is being envisioned as a franchise apart from and unrelated to the upcoming Spider-Man movie in the works with actor Tom Holland.

Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach, among stewards of the Spider-Man properties, are producing and overseeing the project....

... This Venom is meant to not only stand on its own but to also launch its own franchise.

Wasnt this rumored since the Amazing Spiderman films?

In other words it has a new writer to write a new script for a project that has been in development hell before Tobey and Sam ever walked away.

Since effin' Spider-Man 3. I'm shocked that after the deal with Marvel, it's still happening. And here I'd thought we'd dodged a bullet.

It's right around the corner, next to the Sinister Six movie

Makes sense that it's still being made. Venom is an awesome character and it'd be great to see him done properly on the big screen.

lol, I'll eat a f*cking hat if this actually comes out.

TheSkeletonMan939 03-16-2017 05:45 PM

According to it has a release date
Didn't link to that though as there's no source.

Maybe it's kind of intended to be to the MCU what Deadpool is to, like, the Bryan Singerverse.

They'll get Topher Grace back and make Aunt May the villain.

TurtleTitan97 03-16-2017 06:38 PM

Talk about pointless.

ProphetofGanja 03-16-2017 07:07 PM

Wow, Sony's shitshow is going to spread to the MCU? What an awful idea.

Venom is a great character, but I really don't know how well he could really work in a movie

Rushing a Venom movie that isn't connected to your Spider-Man movie without a director attached into prodcution? Lol, you do you Sony.

oldmanwinters 03-16-2017 08:42 PM

DC gave this a try with Catwoman.

TheSkeletonMan939 03-16-2017 08:58 PM

Here's something I was waiting for confirmation on: it's coming out next year.


Spider-Man’s nemesis, sharp of fang, flexible of morals, will get his own adventure, Sony said on Thursday. The spin-off film will swing into theaters on Oct. 5, 2018...

The release shuffle took place hours after Warner Bros. moved “Aquaman” from its Oct. 5 to Dec. 21, 2018. The studio was filling a holiday season hole left by “Avatar 2’s” delays.

I think this indicates that the film is essentially being fast-tracked to the big screen. I wonder if that means there's real worry at Sony as to whether they'll even maintain their status as a major studio within a few years. The Emoji Movie certainly won't be a smash hit (at least I'm pretty sure of that).

NinjaPug 03-16-2017 08:59 PM

Sony and Paramount are both disasters.

snake 03-16-2017 09:21 PM

NEXT YEAR? There's no way this won't get pushed back. I'm hoping that it's a fun train wreck like ASM2.

This will crash and burn. This will be hilarious.

Sony, Sony, Sony...

Venom is my favorite Marvel villain so I want it to succeed. I just don't want it be a joke like Catwoman where it is the character in name only.

TheSkeletonMan939 03-16-2017 10:07 PM

My knowledge of Venom extends to the early nineties... there was this really weird time in between his making a truce with Spidey, and the "Maxinum Carnage" event, where he moved to LA and joined a group of underground hobos. That was bizarre; I hope they don't draw any inspiration from that. :/
