Spider-Man villain spin-off Venom slated for 2018 release

Topher Grace as 'Venom' in Spiderman: 3 (2007)Spider-Man’s arch nemesis, Venom, is finally getting his own film, with production set to start this fall.

While the sharp-toothed, long-tongued, black-suited villain has been represented on screen before via Spider-Man 3it wasn’t well received by fans. Therefore, many are hoping that giving Venom his own film will help ensure the character is developed and handled properly.

Also, the film’s genre has been listed as “Action/Horror/Sci-fi,” and as is the fashion these days with comic book character movies, it’s quite possible the film could receive an R-rating.

Marvel’s reboot of the Spider-Man character is set to officially start with the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming on July 7, 2017, and pending its success, it could be a deciding factor for how Sony handles their treatment of Venom.

With filming to begin very shortly we are certain to get more details soon, as writing and casting for the film will have to begin quickly. Let’s hope some key details are revealed in the meantime!

    That’s a really creepy photo. Reminds me of Christopher Walken in Sleepy Hollow. Maybe they can get him to play Venom?

    Remember when they made non-comic-book movies?

    Villains like Venom and Carnage need to be legitimately terrifying. They need to be sadistic. The film needs to be almost like a horror movie.

    Venom will be an anti-hero. He will end up doing some good which sucks. I agree with Jacob. Venom and Carnage (especially Carnage) aren’t supposed to envoke sympathy etc. I hope they do it justice.
