Color us freaking excited, because this new Venom trailer from Sony looks like the oily symbiote movie we’ve been waiting for.
They also released a brand new poster for the film:
According to wiki, Venom is intended to be the first of Sony’s Marvel Universe, adjunct to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Ruben Fleischer is directing the flick from a screenplay by Scott Rosenberg, Jeff Pinkner, Kelly Marcel and Will Beall.
Tom Hardy will play lead Eddie Brock / Venom, alongside Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze, and Reid Scott.
Development of a Venom film, a spin-off from the Spider-Man film franchise, first began with producer Avi Arad in 2007. After various iterations, work on a new version began in March 2017 to start a new shared universe featuring the Marvel characters to which Sony possessed the film rights, though Sony also intends for the film to share the world of Spider-Man: Homecoming, which is set in the MCU after a deal between Sony and Marvel Studios. Rosenberg and Pinkner were set to write, with Fleischer and Hardy added in May 2017. Principal photography began in October 2017, taking place in Atlanta, New York City, and San Francisco.
Venom is set to be released in the United States on October 5, 2018.
