He dropped out of SS because of scheduling conflicts

This is gonna be military operative Flash Thompson, right?

Like, quick origin of the symbiote after we meet Flash in his early 30s, a washed up asshole still huffing fumes of High School glory and he's drafted into this program as his last attempt at feeling important again.

At which point the two attach and they drop his ass in some warzone somewhere?

Right?

That's what this is?

How do you make Venom without Spiderman? Like, WTH? Or maybe they're doing a DC and will have two concurrent Spidermen? I mean, the fuck is this.

It does not take place in the MCU.

okay wait WHAT lol


I thought Sony making it would just mean it would be in the MCU as well since they negotiated a deal with Spider-man. That is beyond dumb.

Thanks for asking and thanks to folks explaining.

I don't have a problem with Tom Hardy as Brock at all, but I agree that the concept of a solo Venom movie devoid of interaction with Spider-Man isn't a great choice.

I'd be really down for that if it wasn't Sony at the helm. no optimism. too many scars.

Someone could correct me if I'm wrong but AFAIK none of Sonys planned Spider-Man universes have anything to do with Marvel Studios or the MCU. that goes for that Sinister Six thing too.

Why would Marvel let Sony set films in their carefully crafted world that they have zero control over?

Spiderman: "If I pulled that Symbiote off, would you die?"

Brock: "It would be extremely painful."

I hope Venom ends up sounding like Bane.
