Seeing as we have more concrete news, I thought I'd start a topic! biggrin.gif

QUOTE
Tom Hardy will star in Sony’s long-awaited “Spider-Man” movie “Venom,” with “Zombieland” helmer Ruben Fleischer on board to direct.

While “Spider-Man: Homecoming” is still two months away from opening, Sony is acting quickly to build its extended universe, which starts with the “Venom” movie.

Although the studio has been meeting with directors for some time, the actor selection process sped up after Hardy exited J.C. Chandor’s action-thriller “Triple Frontier,” and Sony saw an opportunity to court an in-demand talent.

Fleischer showcased his ability to bring together dark themes and humor in “Zombieland,” and according to sources, Hardy is a huge fan of Venom. Hardy’s only previous film in the superhero genre is 2012’s “The Dark Knight Rises,” in which he played another baddie, Bane.

Scott Rosenberg (“Jumanji”) and Jeff Pinkner (“The Dark Tower”) will write the script for “Venom,” with Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach producing the movie, along with Amy Pascal. Palak Patel and Eric Fineman are overseeing the project for Columbia Pictures.

“Venom” is set to hit theaters on Oct. 5, 2018.

Since its inception in 1988, Venom has been one of “Spider-Man’s” most popular characters, making it a top priority for the studio to get a movie off the ground. The character is an alien symbiote that needs a human host to survive. The alien vests its victim with incredible powers. Venom made his first big-screen appearance in Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man 3,” where he was portrayed by Topher Grace.

Throughout the history of Marvel Comics, Venom has appeared alongside Spider-Man, Iron Man, Deadpool, Hulk, and other Marvel Comics characters.

Hardy most recently starred in the FX series “Taboo” and can be seen next in Christopher Nolan’s World War II epic “Dunkirk.” He is repped by CAA and United Agents.

The film marks Fleischer’s first major tentpole since signing with CAA last year. He has primarily been working in the TV world, specifically on Netflix’s “Santa Clarita Diet.” He is also currently developing a sequel to “Zombieland.” Fleischer is also repped by Management 360.

Hardy posted a photo of himself in a Venom T-shirt to celebrate the announcement.

Such an interesting choice!

Venom is a BRILLIANT bad guy. Probably the most iconic bad guy alongside the Joker? So much wasted potential in the original third Spiderman film! But hopefully this sets him up nicely for Avengers/Spider-Man movies in the future!

So they're gonna actually get someone really buff to play Venom? I remember Eddie Drake in some of the old Spider-Man cartoons being pretty buff.

This has literally gone from 'probably will be shit' to 'omg hyped for this' purely because of Tom Hardy's casting for me! I don't think he's the type to attach himself to a superhero film if it will be rubbish!

"I want Topher Grace back."

I woulda watched it, but not here for MORE Tom Hardy. Give us a break.

I'm gonna reserve judgement. I'm interested how they're gonan introduce the symbiote without Spider-Man being in the Beyonder world like in the comics.
By the looks maybe it crash lands on Earth and bonds to Eddie Brock.
Wonder is he's gonna be the Anti-Hero that Venom is now, seems likely without Spider-Man.
And will Michelle Williams eventually become She-Venom? *.*

Is this a joint project between Sony & Marvel like Spider-Man was, meaning it’s in the same universe, or is it part of its own universe without Spidey?

It's supposed to be a part of it's own universe, apparently. Spider-man (or at least Tom Holland's incarnation) will not be appearing apparently. sad.gif

I guess they’re trying to do Deadpool again, but tbh I can’t really imagine Venom without Spiderman.

Deadpool has always been his own entity and usually works alone. Venom is inherently tied to Spider-Man.

This

They want a second Deadpool, even down to hiring someone famous

Urth

Not here for this

Tom Hardy is a famous man. He is NOT VENOM

I mean, it looks okay. Does seem to be leaning towards anti-hero Vemon which is good. I'd still prefer it to be related to Spider-man but seeing as they've rebooted it, the timeline wouldn't match up.

I feel like it's pointless to start this up without it linking to Tom Holland's spiderman in some way?

I agree with this comment. Tom Holland is listed on IMDB ("rumoured" though) so I'm hoping that Marvel Studios have decided to tie it in in some way or another.

Oh and it's nothing like Deadpool. From the trailer, so those comparisons can stop now (I get Dexton's comparison - but ofc Michael is just basing it on the fact it's a star in the lead role... especially as you wouldn't even put Venom and Deadpool together after actually seeing the trailers 🙃)
