And I bet they'll go with Carnage as the villain.

Somewhere, Todd McFarlane just read this and is now getting his hopes up about his Spawn movie. Soon, Todd, soon.

You don't pull the Venom card and pull out Flash Thompson.

Venom + Eddie Brock or bust.

Brock is still the most popular version of Venom or most well known. So it's reasonable why they chose him.

As much as I hate all the extended symbiote stuff of Spider-Man, a story about Venom hunting down Carnage and all the offsprings like separation anxiety is just dumb enough to work.

it's Sony. it's a Venom movie without Spider Man. it's Sony starting their own separate universe. plus Sony's last try at Venom was dreadful.

It's R rated, that's all we really know.

I don't know about grounded for Venom given how outlandish of a character he is. Maybe "gritty"

I'll always remember reading Secret Wars when I was a kid and seeing the first appearance of the symbiont and later Venom. Was my favorite story in the Spidey comics and who doesn't love the design of (the original) Venom.

I know it's not part of the MCU but the mental image of grown-ass Tom Hardy/Eddie Brock hating this punk from high-school Tom Holland/Peter Parker so much a deranged symbiote bonded up with him is fucking funny.

Venom only ate brains in like one story arc, so probably not likely.

I do imagine it'll be pretty violent though based simply on the fact Venom only has like 1 notable villain, who is even more violent than him.

Pretty sure there is no reason why Tom Holland's Spider-Man couldn't be in this or have this version of Venom be in the sequal to Homecoming.

The deal basically broke down to Marvel can have spidey in Cap 3 and Avengers movies and Sony would get no cut of the revenue but Sony still gets to make Spider-Man movies and they also don't have to pay Disney anything either. Spider-Man Homecoming is a Sony movie so I assume it's part of the "Sony Marvel Universe" while also being in the Marvel universe.

I am baffled as to why Hardy would chose a fucking Spider-Man spin-off (it's not now, but it will be) as his next starring vehicle.

I am baffled as to how Ruben Fleischer got the gig to direct this.

I am baffled all round but, credit where credit is due, this is something of a coup for Sony so fair enough.
