THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED "VENOM" IS COMING TO THEATERS IN OCTOBER! CHECK OUT THE NEW TEASER POSTER AND TRAILER!
While I was initially worried about VENOM, I feel less anxious knowing that Disney/Marvel is working more closely with Sony on their superhero properties. That means that more effort and attention to detail will go into this big-screen adaptation of Venom: Lethal Protector.
Despite the studio's attempts at secrecy (no official plot synopsis has been released), there have been some leaks and plenty of rumors on the web. Tom Holland's Spider-Man (as seen in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING, and the upcoming AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR) will allegedly make an appearance (which makes sense as Spidey plays a crucial role in the comic book mini-series), possibly fighting alongside Venom against a bigger threat.
That threat is most likely Carnage (possibly being played by Woody Harrelson!) and a few other symbiotes (Scream has been confirmed), which makes me wonder if a possible Maximum Carnage offshoot might be coming a few years down the road! I guess we'll just have to wait and see, but for now, give VENOM's teaser poster (squint your eyes at it, and it turns into Venom's face!) and non-revealing teaser trailer, and cross your fingers that they'll do this Marvel anti-hero justice!
VENOM is set for an October 2018 theatrical release - stay tuned for more details!
