Sony won’t give up yet!
It is announced that Tom Hardy will star as Eddie Brock aka Venom is Sony’s upcoming Venom film. Zombieland’s Ruben Fleischer will direct.
Venom will be the first film in Sony’s attempt to build its own Marvel Universe. This is a bizarre situation considering Sony’s deal with Marvel Studios to include Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the film will NOT be part of the MCU films. This is all Sony’s own doing, and it is said that this version of the universe will include a Black Cat/Silver Sable film.
Way to go making the already complicated Marvel film deals even more complicated.
Tom Hardy’s Venom film is set to release on October 5th, 2018.
