Sony Sets October 2018 Release Date For Venom
Sony Pictures has a release date for its Venom film. The studio announced that the film, based on the Marvel Comics, will release on October 5th, 2018. That’s the same date that Aquaman just vacated for a December 21st, 2018 movie.
Previous reports have said that the Venom film will likely not tie into the new Spider-Man (and thus MCU continuity). It isn’t clear whether that’s changed. Venom is one of Spider-Man’s most popular foes, having first appeared as a symbiote costume for Spidey in 1984’s The Amazing Spider-Man #252 and eventually left Peter Parker, merging with the unstable Eddie Brock. The character has been both a villain and an anti-hero depending on the host its taken.
