Awhile back there was talk about Sony doing a Venom movie and out of the blue the internet gets a release date.
According to the old report by THR, Dante Harper was to write up a new script for Venom which is being seen as a franchise that stands alone from Tom Holland’s Spider-Man film expected in 2017. Now it’s being reported by Exhibitor Relations that Scott Rosenberg & Jeff Pinkner (JUMANJI reboot) will write the film.
Venom was first introduced in 1988, created by writer David Michelinie and artists Todd McFarlane and Mike Zeck. The character is an alien symbiote that needs a human host to survive. In return, the alien empowers its victim with incredible powers.
Venom movie is expected for Oct. 5, 2018!
