Before it, Sony Entertainment had the exclusive rights to the films, but the companies finally announced that Spidey would have its place in the #Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In the original comics, Carnage is an offshoot of the Venom Symbiote who, having evolved on Earth with memories of the Symbiote's original host, Spider-Man, is even stronger than two characters combined.
With a release date of October 5, 2018 already locked in, Venom is positioned as the first film in Sony's Spidey spinoff 'verse - but the studio has plans for many more. As of right now, the only good thing about this is Tom Hardy playing Eddie Brock/Venom. Carnage was originally created to be a meaner version of Venom.
The Audi brand, which has showcased numerous vehicles in feature films over the years, is giving moviegoers an exclusive first look at the 2018 Audi A8 on July 7 as Spider-Man: Homecoming hits USA theaters. One idea has popped up over and over again in all these different iterations, and that's Venom as an anti-hero fighting the symbiote Carnage.
The villain for next year's Venom movie has been revealed, and it's pretty much exactly who you'd expect. As bad ass as Venom is, Carnage doubles and triples the ferocity. So don't rule out an appearance in Venom just yet. Clearly, changes are made in Marvel and other superhero movies for one reason or another. He has since been one of the most popular villains in Spider-Man history, but sadly Hollywood never had a chance to make a movie about him until now. Most importantly, it would enable Peter Parker to join the rest of the Marvel Universe and, in effect, come home. In fact, THR details her somewhat heavy involvement in Homecoming despite parting ways with Sony after the 2014 hack.
Now, in an interview with The Hollywood ReporterMarvel Studios president explains how the studio had managed to work out a deal with Sony and bring Spider-Man to the MCU.
The pressure is on with Venom, Sony.
Venom is now scheduled to be released on October 5, 2018.
