Once a rumored project that was set to go then disappeared off the face of the earth in the awakening of Spider-Man: Homecoming, Sony Pictures has announced that Venom is coming to life again!
The classic Marvel Comics villain will be getting his own film. Sony Pictures has announced a set date for October 5th, 2018. They also have two writers set to script the film. Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner will be writing the story of Daily Bugle reporter Eddie Brock, who due to his merging with an alien symbiote that once a part of Spider-Man turns Brock into the sinister “Anti-Spidey” known as Venom.
The character was brought to life in 2007 by Topher Grace in Sam Raimi‘s final installment of his Spidey trilogy, which was also considered the worst of that particular series.
With a director and casting still yet to be locked down, one thing is for sure. Expect to see Venom on October 5, 2018 from Sony Pictures.
