Last week, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed that there were no plans to include Venom in the MCU. He clarified that it was a Sony project.

Carnage Confirmed to Appear in Tom Hardy’s VENOM and Kraven and Mysterio Will Get Standalone Films

Some interesting new information regarding the Spider-Man cinematic universe that Sony Pictures is developing. As you’ve probably already heard by now, Spider-Man: Homecoming producer Amy Pascal said that Tom Holland‘s version of Spider-Man will exist in that cinematic universe that will launch with Venom. That will be followed by a Black Cat and Silver Sable movie.

It was confirmed in a recent report from THR that “Holland is only contractually obligated to Spider-Man 2 and 3, but the intention is to bring him into the spinoffs and possibly other Marvel films.” So we will eventually see Spider-Man in this separate universe that Sony is developing.

VENOM Film Will Reportedly Feature Ann Weying a.k.a. She-Venom and New Details on Venom’s Suit

about. Ann Weying. I had no idea who that was. I mean, sure, I do now, but it’s rare to be introduced to a character from comics that I haven’t heard of that might be featured in a Marvel film. But here we are, and she’s a big one.

Ann Weying is a successful lawyer and Eddie Brock’s ex-wife in the comics. She was shot by some dude and later became She-Venom. Classy title.

R-Rated Venom

So a new movie starring Spider-Man villain The Venom has been officially announced, and Sony has assured us that it’s going to be rated R. And I, for one, am delighted.

Venom Premium Format Figure by Sideshow Collectibles

“Welcome to my neighborhood, Spider-Man! Would you be my… could you be my… neighbor?”

 Venom Premium Format™ Figure How do you begin to describe Venom? He’s part antagonist, part anti-hero.  He’s part man, part monster.  He’s one of Spider-Man’s most dangerous foes, but he’s also sometimes a grudging and reluctant ally.

Anti-Venom Statue by Sideshow Collectibles AND Prime one studios

“See, this is what I’m talking about! NO ONE takes crazy Eddie Brock seriously.” – Edward Brock

 Anti-Venom Statue Developed and manufactured in partnership with Prime 1 Studio, we are proud to present Anti-Venom. Eddie Brock was debonded from the Venom symbiote, traces of it were left in his body. Later, suffering from cancer, Brock started working as a volunteer in the F.E.A.S.T. Center. Martin Li, the alter-ego of Mr. Negative, and founder of F.E.A.S.T. used his powers to cure Eddie’s cancer. In the process, he accidentally infused the remnants of the symbiote in Eddie’s bloodstream with his power and fused them to his white blood cells, creating a new hybrid symbiote which manifested when the Venom symbiote attempted to leave its then-current host and return to Eddie. This new symbiote had powerful healing powers and other powers that differ from the Venom symbiote, producing antibodies that can cure any known disease and remove any other impurities within a human body. Unlike other symbiotes, this symbiote is completely mindless and Eddie Brock is in full control of his actions. Continue reading
