There’s been some confused fans wondering why Sony Pictures would move forward with a solo Venom film that possibly won’t be connected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, that’s not stopping it’s production at all.
The Spider-Man spinoff will star Oscar-nominee Tom Hardy (Mad Max: Fury Road, The Revenant, Dunkirk, Dark Knight Returns) as Eddie Brock with Zombieland’s Ruben Fleishcher set to direct the film.
There have been some unconfirmed rumors that the film will be rated R.
