Venom may use the Ultimate Spider-Man version and set up the She-Venom character


Tom Hardy will be playing Eddie Brock / Venom in Sony’s Venom movie and it is thought that Carnage may be involved

Spider-Man (Tom Holland) is not going to show up in the movie and I had been wondering how they would explain the creation of Venom. In the comics Peter Parker discovered the Venom symbiote while out in space for the Secret Wars storyline. It bonded with Parker and acted like a super-duper suit, but ended up making Spidey more vicious. Spider-Man eventually got rid of it and it bonded with Eddie Brock. The symbiote hated Spider-Man and Brock hated Peter Parker so it was a match made in heaven.

I had forgotten about the Venom of the Ultimate Universe, but The Hashtag Show are reporting that this could be the way they are going for the film. The Ultimate Venom was a bio-suit developed by the Peter Parker and Eddie Brock’s fathers. That makes more sense for what has been set up in Captain America: Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming.

They also report that the character of Ann Weying may be in the film. She was a successful lawyer and Eddie Brock’s ex-wife in the comics. Ann ended up bonded with the venom symbiote when she was shot by Sin-Eater. There is no word on whether she will suit up in the film, but Sony do have a habit of throwing everything they can into their Spider-Man films. Homecoming was made by Marvel Studios in that rare instance of two studios working together. I cannot help but feel that Sony are going to milk that success for all they can.

They have got Venom on the go and a Silver Sable / Black Cat film in development. They are doing both of them in house and without Marvel Studios to guide them I wonder whether they will work as well? Could they also introduce elements that could make it difficult for Spider-Man to interact with the Marvel Cinematic Universe proper further down the line?

It is still all very early to say although the film is due out on 5th October 2018 with production beginning later this year.

What are your thoughts on the Venom movie?
