TOM HARDY PLAYING VENOM + DIRECTOR CONFIRMED
But let's talk about the Venom film. This movie, as well as the Black Cat and Silver Sable team up, will NOT take place in the MCU but in a standalone universe, whether that be in the Amazing Spiderman-verse or a new continuity. That is an issue of these new Spiderman spin-offs, you need Spiderman in the films because he is pivotal to these surrounding characters, but he is in the MCU, and these characters can't be in the MCU, it just gets very messy with rights. Because if you remember, Spiderman's rights are still at Sony, there are just sharing arrangements with Marvel.
That something that I thought may have turned people away from the film, but having a big name like Tom Hardy in the film will boost interest.
I would like to hear your thoughts on Tom Hardy being Venom for the Venom will which will be directed FleischerFliescher, and will release in theaters October 5, 2018. As always thanks for reading, take care.
