NFT: Sony just announced the "Venom" movie in 2018

spike : 3/16/2017 9:04 pm
"Sony may have finally made nice with Marvel and allowed everyoneís favorite web-slinger, Spider-Man, to appear in the MCU, but the studio is still going to make Spidey movies of their own. On Thursday, Sony confirmed that a long-awaited spinoff movie focusing on one of Spider-Manís most notorious villains, Venom, officially had a release date.

There was chatter about a solo Venom movie as recently as last year, but now Slashfilm reports that Venom is set to infect theaters on October 5, 2018. The movie, which Sony is reportedly eyeing as a franchise opportunity, will not be part of the MCU, and the villain wonít interact with Tom Hollandís Peter Parker. Itís unclear if thereís going to be a second Spider-Man played by a different actor swinging around or if Venom will truly be a solo outing.


"

Hopefully SONY won't F it up again. They have a perfect opportunity to introduce the alien costume in Infinity War, but we shall see.


Should be interesting.. - ( New Window )
It's Sony

the likelihood of them getting this right is slim, especially with needing a lot of CGI to pull off Venom. For me he's a character that just doesn't work in live action.
My expectations for this are pretty low for obvious reasons

However, I wonder if this will be similar to how Fox and Marvel handled Quicksilver with each studio having their own take on the character. Tony Revolori was cast to play Flash Thompson in Spider-Man Homecoming, and Flash has been the host of the Venom symbiote in the comics over the past few years. Perhaps Marvel gets Flash and Agent Venom while Sony will run with the traditional version with Eddie Brock as Venom.

I really am just hoping that this doesn't close the door on Venom in the MCU because I don't think anyone other than Marvel Studios can pull it off.
Only if they cast

Also be sure to let us know if there is any movement on the Rainbow Brite film.
This is what sucks about the MCU

Not having access to all of their characters
Imagine Fassbender's Magneto in the MCU?

or how about Dr. Doom? Galactus?


No. We get a lame Zemo in Civil War, hell they should've used Red Skull as much as Loki!

Why would you think they would introduce Venom in Infinity War when theyre saying this isn't part of the MCU? It will be a Sony-only franchise, not shared with Marvel Studios/Disney.

They're going to be struggling to have all these characters on the screen at the same time, I have a hard time seeing them work a Venom/symbiote story line (while a separate Venom franchise is being developed by Sony) into Infinity War, too. But, we shall see!
I hope we see

Carnage. I have been waiting to see him on screen forever. Give it a R-Rating it will rock!
I've been wanting to see Carnage as well!

Personally I don't think it needs to be a major part in the movie, maybe just a tease

After the success of Logan and Deadpool, I'd expect a rush of these antihero type movies.

Venom is tough to pull off without being reimagined. He is beyond roided up in the comics, which hasn't been very successful beyond the 90s in action films.

After part 1 of Infinity Wars

I'm a HUGE fan of Venom in the comics

I was so disappointed with Spider-man 3 and how that kid from the 70's show got cast as Eddie Brock. I love to see another adaptation if done correctly.

Although hard to see a Venom film working without Spiderman involved somehow. Even if it's just a short cameo.

Two ways I can see it working is to make it a strict R-rated horror film. Have a scene like Aliens, where a group of astronauts find a living organism in space and have the symbiote take over one of them as the host and kill off the rest of the astronauts in a typical horror film sequence to start the film. Then have the space ship arrive back to Earth, where the symbiote wants to kill people but the human host forces it to only go after criminals. That's a possibility.

Another possible way, copy Deadpool have Venom break the 4th wall and interact with the audience. This way he can make fun of Peter Parker/Spiderman, without really involving him in the film. Breaking the 4th wall also would be a good way of getting his origins explained to the mass audience where majority don't know his backstory.

Interested to see who they cast for this film and in what story direction they would go with.

I wouldn't say that part sucks about the MCU, because if they did have access to those bigger name characters then we might not have gotten an Ant-Man, Doctor Strange or GotG films based on their 2nd/3rd tier characters.

FOX will milk the X-Men forever, especially with Deadpool breaking so many box office numbers and Logan getting so much critical acclaim. So can't see them letting the rights ever go back to Marvel\Disney.

Sony thankfully let Marvel Studios to add Spiderman into the MCU but will never let the rights ever go back to Marvel\Disney.

Those are the only two Marvel franchises that Marvel/Disney doesn't own the rights to that anyone cares about.

I could care less about the Fantastic Four or if FOX puts out another crappy adaptation in 5 years to retain the film rights.

Universal has given back the rights to Marvel/Disney for Namor.......although while Marvel/Disney own the production rights to the Hulk, Universal own the rights to distribute any individual Hulk film. Which is why Marvel Studios has not released any new stand alone Hulk films, instead using him in the Avengers and also throwing the Planet Hulk storyline into a "Thor Movie".
