We’ve been waiting years to hear it and in an early morning announcement from Sony, we finally heard it. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony has announced that a Venom spinoff movie is in the works after the studio hired a A-Team screenwriting team of Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner, Ed Solomon and Drew Goddard.
The official announcement of a Venom movie comes after years of speculation which heated up in the last few months. Even in recent days it’s been sounding like a Venom movie will be happening with word that Andrew Garfield was not involved in the fourth movie Sony ordered in the franchise.
Now, this fourth movie could be a Sinister Six movie as that was also announced by Sony in it’s early morning bombshell. But while a Sinister Six movie is something we’ve all been looking forward too, nothing can top the wait for Venom movie that will hopeful do the character justice in this golden age of comic book movies.
Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci will be in charge of penning the Venom movie, according to THR, and Goddard will be penning the Sinister Six movie.
This is a major announcement by Sony who are now literally countering Marvel’s superhero universe with one occupied by Spider-Man villains — and we couldn’t be more excited about it.
