Read more on the newest anti-hero movie Venom getting it’s own movie…
Last week it was reported that the popular Spider-Man villain Venom might be getting his own solo movie. Today, we got word vis Sony Pictures, that the “The Mummy” director and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” writer Alex Kurtzman will helm the upcoming Marvel movie, but no word yet on who’ll star as Venom.
Amy Pascal was the co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment, she told Variety:
“We are expanding the Spider-Man universe into The Sinister Six and Venom, so that we have Spider-Man movies every year.”
Venom has taken over the time slot for Warner Bros.’ Aquaman solo film since it got pushed back to December 2018.
This version of the Marvel villain will reportedly not exist in the shared MCU as Tom Holland’s Spider-Man. Sony first revived the film project last year and according to last year’s reports, the film was “being envisioned as a franchise apart from and unrelated to the upcoming Spider-Man movie in the works with actor Tom Holland.”
Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach, the producers of the Spider-Man movies for Sony, are also producing Venom, with Dante Harper (Edge of Tomorrow) penning the script.
Meanwhile, the first solo film for the MCU/Sony version of Spider-Man, Spider-Man: Homecoming, hits theaters on July 7.
