Venom Spin off, finds its director
Spider-Man fans gather around to hear the news that our fan favorite Venom will finally get his time to shine. Back when Sony had the rights to Spider-Man, they had planed on filming a Sinsiter Six movie along with Venom himself. Well Sony, not Marvel, made an announcement stating that the spin off movie have a release date of October 8th, 2018 with director Alex Kurtzman. Alex Kurtzman is well known for writing The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and the Mummy. We all remember the disaster that pleagued our cinemas when Topher Grace was cast as Eddie Brock. With this film already making headway, the question reminds...who will play Eddie Brock? And what story will they follow? More notable will Sony butcher this incarnation of Venom again? As the Project continues to gain more traction, we will see who the studio chooses.
