Sony Pictures Films has cast Tom Hardy in their upcoming Spider-Man spinoff movie as Venom. This will be a big transition for Hardy going from DC Comics to Marvel.
Sony Pictures is excited for the Spider-Man spinoff movie, and is looking to make the 2018 release date.
The Hollywood Reporter stated that:
“Venom is to usher in a host of movies from Sony’s Marvel and Spider-Man-based universe of characters. Sony is rebooting its Marvel-based slate with this summer’s Spider-Man: Homecoming and Venom is a key title in its slate. The studio is also developing a Silver Sable/Black Cat project among other characters from the Spider-Man stable.”
Unfortunately, Venom will not be made in jointly with Marvel Studios like Spider-Man: Homecoming was, and Tom Holland will not make an appearance.
