In the comics, Brock was a Daily Bugle journalist and rival to Peter Parker, but he fell prey to Venom after coming in contact with an alien parasite brought to Earth by, who else, Spider-Man. The film was going to be directed by Alex Kurtzman but it has not been confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter that Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) is in final negotiations to direct the film. Hardy is reportedly a huge fan of the comic book character.

Venom is scheduled for release in the U.S. 5 October 2018.

They also note that Venom is from Sony's Marvel Universe and is not a spinoff but the first movie after Spider-Man from its Marvel Universe of characters.

In an unexpected but major casting coup, Sony Pictures have secured Tom Hardy to portray Eddie Brock / Venom in Sony's upcoming Spider-Man spin-off film about the villainous monster.

However, the new films will not crossover with Tom Holland's Spider-Man, soon to be seen in Spider-Man: Homecoming this July. In 2014, he even agreed to playRick Flag in DC's Suicide Squad but had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts; the role eventually went to actor Joel Kinnaman. Everyone's favorite symbiote anti-hero, Venom, will be swinging into theaters sooner than expected on October 5, 2018, and now Tom Hardy is confirmed to be playing the one known to speak in the pural first-person while slobbering about brains and some such.

The Spider-Man hype is unreal and the heavy anticipation to see more of Spider-Man's world unfolding on the big screen is starting to weigh on our feeble hearts.

The script for Venom is being written by Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinker, who previously collaborated on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and the upcoming film Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.
