This is where it came across Brock, a disgraced news reporter who shared similar “venom” towards Peter Parker.

“I can’t say anything other than that it is happening. I am not [working on it]. As of right now, I am not…
Sony recently dated two forthcoming Marvel movies, one of which would land on October 2, 2020.

While we’re unsure if Ruben Fleischer will return to direct, Tom Hardy will reprise the role of Eddie Brock barring some shocking change in plans.
