Sony has just announced, via twitter, that Tom Hardy Has been cast as Eddie Brock/Venom in the upcoming Venom film that is set to kick off their own multiverse set apart from the MCU. There’s also the big question mark around Spider-Man himself which seems to be, for the time, being shared for only a couple of films. My guess is the success of Spider-Man: Homecoming will allow the two studios to renagotiate a better deal. I personally feel like he has the potential to be a great Eddie/Venom. He’s got the look, the intimidation, and with the right kind of CG suit could be that first hit to get Sony’s Spider-Verse going. Keep checking back for more, as the film has been sceduled for an October 5th, 2018 release date.
