Ever since the announcement that Sony would be starting its own Marvel Universe, separate from the MCU, fans have been curious as to what exactly that would look like. Today we got our first very tiny glimpse into whats to come from the set of Sony’s first film in the new franchise.. ‘Venom.’ Though the set photo gives us no clues as to what we can expect from the film. We are assured that the filming is now underway and we can expect to see more over the coming months. ‘Venom’ is set to hit theaters just under a year from now, October 5, 2018.

‘Venom’ will be directed by Zombieland’s Ruben Fleischer and star Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock. Not much has been let on about the film, other than it will have no connection to the MCU’s Spider-man played by Tom Holland. (At least yet that is) and will be followed up by a Black Cat/Silver Sable film.

[kb_author]Venom was originally conceived as a supervillain, but has since become more of an antihero. Venom is a Symbiote, a sentient alien, with a gooey, almost liquid-like form. As with real-world symbiotes, it requires a host, usually human, to bond with for its survival. After bonding, the Symbiote endows its enhanced powers upon the host. When the Venom Symbiote bonds with a human, that new dual-life form refers to itself as “Venom”.[/kb_author]
