The Bride of ‘Venom’ to Appear in the Film!

Even though we’re stuck in a world where nearly every single blockbuster is part of a “universe”, it’s starting to feel as if we’re progressing past the norm and executives are taking bigger and better risks. Logan and Deadpool paved the way with the help of Guardians of the Galaxy, and most recently Wonder Woman. All bets are off and Marvel, especially, is willing to take a risk on anything. What a time to be alive.

This is rubbing off on studios, with Sony Pictures trying something new with Venom, their anti-hero adaptation based on the infamous Spider-Man villain. While it’s already been revealed that Carnage (Cletus Kasady) will be the film’s antagonist, the studio is planning an even bigger surprise…the “Bride of Venom” will also make an appearance, according to the Hashtag Show.

The site is reporting that Venom will see the character Ann Weying turn into She-Venom! In the comics, Weying is Eddie Brock’s (Tom Hardy) ex-wife, who becomes a temporary host for the symbiote.

“Ann was a lawyer in the comics but Sony has not yet committed to her back story for the film,” explains the site. “The studio, working with a new script from Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg, is looking to cast an actress in the range of 25-32, so a few years younger than Hardy, to play the role of Ann. In the comics, Ann was shot by one the characters who took the name Sin-Eater, only to have her life saved by the symbiote. It set off a series of events that lead to her depression and suicide.

“It’s unclear what the plot of the film is,” they add, “but we expect the symbiote to be the Ultimate version which was a bio suit co-created by the fathers of Eddie Brock and Peter Parker.”

While not part of the Marvel Comics Universe, Venom will, in fact, be in the same “reality” as the Spider-Man films, which could lead to a crossover in the future. Until then, Columbia Pictures’ “R”-rated Venom opens in theaters Oct. 5, 2018.

    Well if the Hashtag Show said it then it must be true.

  • Darkknight2149

    What’s with the clickbait? The article literally says “Sony has not yet committed to her back story for the film.”

  • Darkknight2149

    I don’t think that making a Venom film is ‘trying something new’, because Sony has been trying to make a Venom movie since he appeared in “Spider-Man 3” (2007).

    • ky

      Bro….there has never been a “Venom” film. Therefore, making a “Venom” film would be considered “trying something new”.

      • Darkknight2149

        I see what you’re saying, but they’ve been trying to get it off the ground for an entire decade. I guess it just depends on how you look at it.

  • Valak

    Will she be a young college student who has visions?

  • Bloodkry

    I got a bad feeling about this film.

  • Dhosi Lazo

    First they’re saying it’s gonna be a comedy and now it’s gonna have a girl Venom?! This is gonna crash and burn.

    • Nahuel Benvenuto

      They really say it is gonna be a comedy? Oh boy

  • RedNeoCon

    Best thing to do is dust off Tobey McGuire and have him appear in an R-rated Venom, as an older, disgruntled Spider-Man.

    • Saturn

      Indeed, and get Raimi back on board.
      There is absolutely no reason why the Maguire Spider-Man cannot co-exist with the Holland one – just use the whole “multiverse” angle.
      I’m sure modern cinema goers can wrap their heads around 2 alternate Spider-Men in different sets of movies – they already did a similar thing with Quicksilver without causing too many ripples (and yeah, I know Spidey is much more iconic, but still…)

      It would be cool if Raimi came back and gave us a REAL Venom movie, with an R rating.

      • RedNeoCon

        Right. McGuire could be an older, grizzled, sloppy Spidey who is called back to action once Venom appears.

  • Grimphantom

    They are adding too many characters this will turn out bad, really bad.

    • Bla Blah

      at this point, I wouldn’t be surprised if they are trying to get their own…Sony Cinematic Universe going.

      • Grimphantom

        They already did! Amazing Spider-Man and the Ghostbusters reboot and failed miserably

  • Otterlee

    Gotta smash a love story into every friggin movie don’t they.

  • Logan

    I can hear Tom Hardy audibly sighing from here. Everything they’ve announced since the addition of Carnage has been absolutely horrid.

    • zero2815

      You think a thespian gives a shit about venom then you ‘re crazy. If he carred he would have declined the the roles he’s gotten and gave it to some one who was at least 6 ft tall.

    Just stop it Sony. Spider-Man may be my favorite superhero of all time, and I really enjoyed Homecoming today, but all these other films that won’t even connect to the MCU don’t need to happen. Sony just wants to have their cake and eat it too by still trying to do stuff they don’t have to share with Marvel. A cinematic universe of Spider-Man side characters and villains WITHOUT Spider-Man is just so fucking dumb.

    And the only people who still want a Venom movie are the people who never wised the fuck up. I don’t hate characters like Venom and Carnage, but they are practically the epitome of everything that was wrong with 90s comics. And you just can’t do them without Spider-Man. Venom’s creation revolves heavily around Peter. Hell, Eddie Brock and the symbiote’s personal hatred for Peter is what drives Venom to villain status. Cassidy is just a serial killer, but the symbiote still interacts with Peter first.

    Just fucking stop Sony. Let Marvel do whatever they want with these characters. It’s where they belong, and you had your chance. Twice. And it’s obvious they don’t have a clue as to what they’re doing. There’s so many alleged rumors like this. So many times they went back and forth on whether or not it would fit in the MCU. Etc. There’s no definitive plan. Sony is reminding me of DC when they started their shitshow that’s only saving grace so far as of now is Wonder Woman.

      The mcu is crap bro

      • Nick Botic

        Well you are of the supremely unpopular opinion. It’s only the most successful film franchise of all time, but yeah, it’s crap, bro

  • Cheddar Hayes

    Is it true that Venom is going to be a Life origin story?

  • sliceanddice

    i consider myself a fairly big spider fan i and have never heard of the bride of venom. also… that artwork looks like a xenomorph fucked pamela anderson and not in a good way.

    • jackstark211

      Thanks for this. HA!!!

  • Bla Blah

    ….WHAT? How is it not in the MCU but exists in the same reality with plans for a crossover. That’s literally being in the MCU.

    • CaptainObvios775

      Thats Sony trying to take advantage of their deal with Marvel and trying to trick audiences into thinking their movie will be as good and anything that Marvel released so far instead of as bad as everything else they released so far. and yes, that includes the original Spiderman trilogy. That shit aged like milk.

  • guest

    no venom spin-off “bride of venom” movie?

  • Nahuel Benvenuto

    Already sounding retarded, btw, BS about WW taking risks, is as safe, predictable, formulaic, and casual audiences orientated as anything from the mcu, and the other movies named are not particulary good either

  • AdamX

    She-Venom vs She-Bat in a DC/Marvel crossover.
