VENOM Movie Is Reportedly Being Developed As An R-Rated Launch For Sony's Own Marvel Cinematic Universe

It seems clear at this stage that Sony Pictures plans to fast-track the Venom movie, and a new report indicates that the studio is actually developing their own R-rated Marvel movie universe...

We recently found out that Sony has taken steps to get their long-gestating Venom movie into production, and that shooting was set to commence on the "sci-fi horror" spinoff as soon as this fall. All signs pointed to this being completely separate to Marvel and Sony's collaboration on Spider-Man: Homecoming, but now a new report suggests that they're going to have even less of a connection than we realized.

According to Collider's sources, Venom is being developed as an R-rated launch for the studio's own cinematic universe which would utilize the Spider-Man characters that they still retain the rights too, and would not tie-in to the MCU in any way. Why build an entire franchise around a bunch of Spider-Man heroes and villains without Spidey himself? Well, because they can.

We'll leave you to discuss the absurdity of this in the usual place.

No director is attached to Venom just yet, but te movie has a tentative release date of October 5, 2018.
