Just about a year ago we learned that Sony was making a Venom movie, and now we have a release date!
Sony announced today their Venom movie will hit theaters on October 5, 2018. That means production will begin later this year!
Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner are writing the script, and Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach, who produced the original Spider-Man trilogy and The Amazing Spider-Man franchise, are producing and overseeing the project.
Unfortunately, this Venom movie will not be connected to Spider-Man: Homecoming in any way. Right now it’s just a Sony project with no involvement from Marvel Studios.
