Venom Movie Announced For 2018 Release!?!

Seemingly out of nowhere Sony has announced they'll be releasing a standalone Venom movie next year. We first heard rumblings of this film's development last year, but we are blown away to hear that this film will be in theaters October 5th of next year. Little is known about this movie thus far other than the script is being drafted by screenwriters Scott Rosenburg and Jeff Pinker. The film will have no connection to Spiderman: Homecoming and will exist outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

If you are unfamiliar with the Venom character, or your only knowledge of him comes from Topher Grace's portrayal in Spiderman 3 let me fill you in on the backstory of Venom. Venom was created back in '82 by a comic book fan who wanted to see Spiderman in a different costume. Marvel paid the fan $220 (~$565 today) for his idea. The black symbiote suit was created by a machine that fabricates any type of clothing the user can think of. It wasn't until Peter Parker took the costume to Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic) for examination, that they found out the clothing was alive. Since then Venom was gone from being one of Spiderman's greatest villains to an anti-hero (like Wolverine or The Punisher), and most recently an agent of shield. 

There are a few different directions this film can go in, depending on how the symbiote arrives on Earth and who the symbiote bonds with.The Venom movie is expected to be released on October 5, 2018. I can't wait to see how this film will come out. My fingers are crossed for Carnage to finally make his debut and be the villain for this movie.
