Sony plans to put Marvel's symbiotic monster up front with a Venom spin-off film in the works.
Although the villain did appear in the Spiderman 3 movie, the movie studio might be moving forward with the "comic book bad guy" momentum, set by the late Heath Ledger's disturbing portrayal of Batman's nemesis, the Joker, in The Dark Knight. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony commissioned a draft from Mean Creek scribe Jacob Estes but the studio plans on changing directions from his script.
No actors/actresses have been confirmed for the cast as of yet. Spider-Man 3 by Sony Pictures was released last year starring Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker. The movie was the former record holder for the biggest weekend opening, before The Dark Knight took its place. There's only two things we plan on not seeing in the Venom spin-off: Topher. Grace.
