Spider-Man Spinoff Venom Gets A Release Date

Is Columbia Pictures long-gestating Spider-Man spinoff film Venom finally taking off?

On Thursday, the studio announced it has staked October 5, 2018 for the release of the comic book movie centered on the Spider-Man villain and anti-hero Venom.

The date was previously occupied with the sequel to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl in the Spider's Web, but that particular film is now set for an October 19, 2018 release.

This time last year, it was reported that Sony Pictures had procured the services of Dante Harper to write a new draft for Venom, but since then not much has been heard of the project.

Venom has no director or actors currently attached to it.

Created by writer David Michelinie and artists Todd McFarlane and Mike Zeck in 1988, Venom is an alien symbiote that requires a host to survive, in return giving him superhuman abilities. Many writers and adventures later, Venom became an anti-hero working for the government.

Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are still attached as producers, and are overseeing the project. Amy Pascal is also producing.
