Tom Hardy Is Venom! Sony Begins New Spider-Movie-Verse!
Today, Sony Pictures Entertainment announced that they are moving forward with a Venom stand-alone movie starring Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock. Zombieland and Gangster Squad director Ruben Fliescher will helm the project which will be the beginning of Sony's Marvel Universe. This will be a new cinematic universe of shared films much like Marvel Studios' own, except this one is featuring only Spider-Man-related characters since those are the only ones they have the film rights to. Scott Rosenburg and Jeff Pinkner are penning the script while screenwriter Chris Yost is also currently working on a screenplay for a Black Cat and Silver Sable film which would have the two anti-heroines teaming-up for an adventure. The film is set to debut on October 5, 2018.
