Sony announces ‘Venom’ solo film!


Here’s some unexpected news for you. Overnight Sony pictures have announced they are pushing forward with a solo Venom film.

Back during the Andrew Garfield days Sony were actively developing spin-off films for Venom and the Sinister Six. Those were presumed to have ground to a halt when Sony entered a deal with Disney/Marvel to share rights to the Spider-Man character. No news on whether this new ‘Venom’ film will tie in to Tom Holland’s MCU Spider-Man universe.

Currently known as simply ‘Venom’ the film will hit cinemas on October 5th 2018. Does that date ring a bell? October 5th is the date that Warner Bros. ‘Aquaman’ film vacated just several hours before this announcement!

After the announcement Exibitor Relations Twitter account broke the news that Alex Kurtzman (writer of ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’) would be directing ‘Venom’.

They have since retracted that story and offered a new update on who will be penning the story.

We’ll keep you updated as this story develops.
