Of course The Marvel Cinematic Universe is always expanding and with the mega success with Deadpool, the first R-rated Marvel movie the door is wide open for more…
CelebNMovies247.com has also learned via RottenTomatoes that the possibility of more Spider-Man spinoffs can be in developement, such as The Sinister Six, and a female-centric spinoff movie (rumored to be Black Cat). This week, Sony Pictures announced that they are indeed moving forward with plans for a Venom Movie, though exactly how they are doing it may come as a surprise.
Instead of directly spinning off of Spider-Man (Venom actually started off as Peter Parker’s alien symbiote costume in the comics), Sony’s new Venom will be a standalone film which the studio is hoping will start a whole new franchise separate from Spider-Man (and ostensibly, likely the MCU as well).
It is not yet known which version of Venom will form the basis of Sony’s first film, though the two most obvious candidates are reporter Eddie Brock and longtime Peter Parker adversary Flash Thompson, AKA Agent Venom.
Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios have scheduled their first Spider-Man movie, played by Tom Holland, for next summer, July 7, 2017.
