Thanks to films like Logan and Deadpool, we’re in the golden age of superhero films. With New Mutants on the way from FOX, Sony’s digging deep into their horror catalog with their Spider-Man spinoff, Venom, which stars Tom Hardy as the title character. Targeting a release next October, production is officially underway with Zombieland‘s Ruben Fleischer in the director’s chair.
Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams, Scott Haze and Jenny Slate also star.
Carnage is the villain in this piece, and although rumors had Ahmed in the role, the studio has said that is not so.
Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, and Amy Pascal are producing Venom.
