Venom Movie Production Delayed – Still Eyeing October 2018 Release
While Spider-Man is swinging around with the Avengers in the hands of Marvel Studios, one of the web-head’s most ferocious villains Venom will be heading out on his own solo film headed by Sony. So fat, it’s been announced that actor Tom Hardy has been chosen to play alien symbiote’s first host Eddie Brock, and a director was found in Zombieland‘s Ruben Fleischer. Venom movie production was originally set to begin earlier this month, but now but it seems filming won’t begin until late October.
According to Omega Underground, Venom is now going to start shooting in Atlanta, Georgia on October 23, nearly two months after the original start date of September 1st. The reasoning the site states for the delay is the increased popularity the city has achieved as a filming location. Despite the late start of Venom movie production, filmmakers are still aiming to release the film in theaters on October 5, 2018.
Venom has not even started production and it has already been the subject of conversation. The upcoming film’s place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was the topic of debate for a long while, one made more complicated when Spider-Man: Homecoming producer Amy Pascal suggested the film was indeed connected. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige would later clarify that Venom would not be introduced into the MCU.
What do you think? Is the Venom movie doomed before production even begins, or are there too many great players involved to screw things up too badly? Do you think Venom is secretly part of the MCU?
