"We all have our own problems".
When Sony announced they would be making a Marvel Venom spin-off movie supposedly in the same universe as Spider-man: Homecoming, fans were rightly nervous.
Indeed, if we're assuming that this movie follows established Spider-Man story arcs, then there is no Venom without Spider-Man. Both Venom and Eddie Brock previously appeared in Spider-Man 3.
Incoming The Spider Man spinoff- which stars Tom 40 as a supervillain opposite Michelle Williams- will be released on October 5
The footage we see in the trailer focuses on Tom Hardy and we don't get a look at the Venom creature yet.
For what it's worth, we do get to see the symbiote squirming around inside a containment chamber, and what looks like a crashed space ship. And there have been hints that Tom Hardy's Peter Parker/Spider-Man could make a cameo as well. In Planet of the Symbiotes, earth is invaded by an army of symbiotes, aka the black, gooey alien substance that serves as the raw materials for Venom's iconic costume.
Venom is set to be released on October 5th and will be directed by Ruben Fleischer, who is best known for directing the 2009 cult-hit Zombieland. Sony is giving the world Silver and Black (Feb. 8, 2019), which will beat Captain Marvel by one month to be the first Marvel-branded film to be helmed by a woman since 2008's Punisher: War Zone.
While Marvel Studios and Disney are rounding home base again with a third Avengers movie in April, Sony has found that their once mighty Spider-Man franchise is looking for a new direction.More news: 'Where does it end?': Alberta businesses react to the BC wine boycott
