Earlier this year saw the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming. The film was a collaboration between Sony and Marvel Studios, and after Sony sort of screwed the pooch with their Amazing Spider-Man series — in that they made the films for too much money and tried to build their universe too much — they opted to allow Marvel Studios to utilize their character.

If the quality of Spider-Man: Homecoming is anything to go off of, they certainly made the right move in working with Marvel Studios. However, that’s not to say that they’re content to play second fiddle to the other studio. Prior to the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming, they let their intentions be known that they still plan on going forward with a spinoff of certain characters — namely Venom, Silver Sable, and Black Cat.

Venom, which is set to hit theaters on October 5, 2018, was slated to begin production on September 1 (so just under a week from now). However, ProjectCasting (via Omega Underground) is saying that Sony is just now looking for crews for the Atlanta shoot. With the film’s crew not yet assembled, it seems unlikely that they’ll be able to get things going in the next six days. More than likely, they’ll need to delay things at least a few weeks. The small delay aside, we see no reason why it shouldn’t make its street date.

Few real details are known about the Venom movie right now. The film is directed by Zombieland’s Ruben Fleischer and stars Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock. Riz Ahmed is reportedly in talks for a role, though what role specifically is still unknown. Carnage is rumored to appear, but at this point it’s all hearsay.
