Will Tom Hardy's Venom be the darkest ever Marvel movie?

The trailer for Sony’s first step into its new movie universe hints at a visceral grisliness very different to the Avengers’ smiling saviours

A penny for the thoughts of Sam Raimi, director of the original Spider-Man movies, should he have happened to watch the new trailer for Sony’s Venom this week. For the first instalment in the studio’s own Marvel universe looks like just the sort of movie Raimi would have chopped his own hand off to be given the chance of directing.

Raimi was cast aside by Sony after the critical drubbing received by 2007’s Spider-Man 3, even though that movie’s well-documented problems (mainly involving Venom) were allegedly not all of his making. He appears to have been in the directorial sin-bin since 2013’s middling Oz the Great and Powerful,

Marvel’s Kevin Feige provides Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 update, confirms international setting

While Marvel isn’t given much away about its Phase Four plans – with an official announcement set to arrive in summer 2019 – we do know that the next run of McU movies will get underway with a sequel to last year’s web-slinger reboot Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Out and about on the press tour for Avengers: Infinity War [read our spoiler-free review here], Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has provided an update on Homecoming 2, as well as confirming rumours that Spidey will be leaving New York City and heading overseas.

“We start filming early July,” Feige told io9. “We film in London. We shot first film in Atlanta. And we shoot a lot of films in London but there’s another reason we’re shooting in London which is, yes, Spidey, of course, will spend some time in New York, but he’ll spend some time in other parts of the globe.”

No Matter What Sony Tells You, ‘Venom’ Is Going to Be Terrible

Sony’s been in a rough spot lately as a movie studio. After failing to get their Amazing Spider-Man reboot to connect with audiences, they released a series of similarly received duds to theaters. Ultimately, they had to sell back their Spider-Man movie rights to Marvel, although they were able to negotiate one face-saving caveat into the paperwork. They might lose everything else, but at least they could still make Venom. Although the exact terms of the deal aren’t entirely clear when looking in on it from the outside, Sony seemingly shares the rights to the Spider-Man family of characters with

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Review: A Decade of Marvel Movies Collide in One Epic Showdown After Another

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Review: A Decade of Marvel Movies Collide in One Epic Showdown After Another
This is not a spoiler: “Avengers: Infinity War” contains the most dramatic cliffhanger of any major blockbuster since “The Empire Strikes Back,” and everything leading up to it is a marathon. After 18 movies and 10 years of Marvel superheroes battling through overlapping plots, sibling directors Anthony and Joe Russo unite nearly every single character for a series of epic showdowns and one giant, universe-shattering threat. It’s a lot more cohesive than “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” and the sprawling, busy ensemble often feels like every Marvel movie engaged in overlapping conversation, like a slow-zoom from the Robert Altman playbook laced with CGI. As a virtuoso juggling act, “Infinity War” has no real parallel in popular culture; as a movie, it’s an impressive montage of greatest hits until the gut punch of a finale.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has become a busy place since “Iron Man” first launched his suit in

Jake Johnson Is Peter Parker In Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Sony Pictures had the first major studio presentation at CinemaCon in Las Vegas yesterday, the biggest convention for exhibitors around the world, where the studio unveiled a new trailer for their upcoming animated movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. While the trailer has not yet officially arrived online yet, the footage did confirm some interesting details, including the fact that Jake Johnson has been set to provide the voice of Peter Parker. The footage also offered a glimpse at three iconic comic book villains that will be featured in the animated adventure, the Green Goblin, Kingpin and The Prowler.

Last year, Sony confirmed that Shameik Moore has signed on to provide the voice of Miles Morales, while Liev Schreiber was brought on to voice an unspecified villain, although he has still not been identified yet. Since this new footage showcases both Green Goblin and Kingpin, it's definitely possible that he could

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse’s Three Villains Revealed

Peter Parker is set to return to the McU in Avengers: Infinity War, but he’s not the only version of the wall-crawler hitting screens this year. Spidey’s first theatrically-released animated movie, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, arrives in December and features Miles Morales as Peter’s successor to the Spider-mantle.

The other day at CinemaCon, some new footage of Into the Spider-Verse materialized and revealed the trio of supervillains that will appear in the film. According to JoBlo.com, the footage featured the Ultimate version of Norman Osborn’s Green Goblin, Aaron Davis/The Prowler and Wilson Fisk Aka Kingpin.

The first two of those aren’t that surprising. After all, the Prowler from the Ultimate universe, where Miles originated, is the criminal uncle of the second Spider-Man. Mahershala Ali was also previously announced to be playing the character.

Green Goblin, meanwhile, is a major a part of the Ultimate Spider-Man mythos.

Avengers: Infinity War Scribes Say Including The Defenders Would Have Been A “Bridge Too Far”

Ever since Marvel started expanding their cinematic universe on Netflix, fans have been crying out for the street-level heroes like Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage to crossover with Iron Man and co. on the big screen. Our best hope for this happening was in Avengers: Infinity War and/or its sequel Avengers 4. And while we fully expect those movies to feature lots of fan-pleasing cameos, we’re pretty sure we’re not about to see Iron Fist or Matt Murdock put in an appearance.

In an interview with Screen Rant, Infinity War screenwriters Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus were asked why they didn’t include the Defenders alongside the Avengers in the upcoming event movie, which otherwise unites the whole of the McU. According to Markus, introducing five more heroes from a very different part of the franchise into the narrative would have been “a bridge too far.”

Venom Poster Has Tom Hardy in Harmony with the Symbiote

Venom Poster Has Tom Hardy in Harmony with the Symbiote
The official Venom poster is here. Sony is currently working on several Spider-Man spin-off movies that won't actually include the famed webslinger in them. Instead, these movies will center on other characters from Spidey's world, starting with the historically villainous Venom, as portrayed by Tom Hardy. Now, to go along with the reveal of the full-length Venom trailer, a new poster for the movie has arrived, featuring Tom Hardy working with the symbiote in harmony.

This poster is in many ways exactly what you might think it would be when you hear Tom Hardy is going to be playing Venom. The left half of the poster is his face as the character from the world of Marvel Comics and the other half is just Tom Hardy's as Eddie Brock. We can see a little bit of San Francisco in the background, since that's where at least part of the movie

‘Jumanji 3′ Release Date Confirmed; Dwayne Johnson Will Return

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle turned out to be a massive, surprise hit for Sony. While I’m sure the studio thought it would do well, no one expected it to go toe-to-toe with Star Wars: The Last Jedi and end up as the studio’s highest domestic grossing film of all-time (it barely beat out 2002’s Spider-Man for the title). So it’s no surprise that the studio is moving full steam ahead on a sequel. Last night at CinemaCon, Sony Pictures head Tom Rothman confirmed that a sequel to Jumanji: Welcome to the …

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ First Reactions Praise Marvel’s ‘Astonishing’ Epic, Go Crazy for ‘Shocking’ and ‘Unpredictable’ Ending

Marvel has finally unveiled “Avengers: Infinity War” for the press, and the first reactions are overwhelmingly positive. Film critics call the Marvel tentpole “thrilling” and “an astonishing experience,” with IndieWire’s own Jamie Righetti raving that it’s “everything you go to the movies for: Action, romance, humor, heartbreak, it has it all.” The film’s ending, in particular, is eliciting major shock from the press, with everyone adamant that fans avoid all spoilers at every cost.

“Infinity War” brings together the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe after 18 films over the last decade. Heroes from the “Iron Man,” “Thor,” “Captain America,” “Doctor Strange,” “Spider-Man,” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” franchises all team up to defeat Thanos from wiping out half the universe’s population. Thanos is played by Josh Brolin in a motion-capture performance.

Venom Doesn’t Know How To Pronounce ‘Symbiote’

The Venom movie shockingly doesn’t seem to know how to pronounce the word “symbiote”. Fan concern that Sony’s Spider-Man spinoff film would bungle presenting a comic book-accurate version of the supervillain was alleviated in the final moments of the new Venom trailer when Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock fully transforms into the creature, complete with a razor-sharp array of teeth and his infamous prehensile tongue. But while the movie thankfully gets Venom’s look just right, they somehow dropped the ball on how to properly say what is perhaps the most pivotal word in the entire piece.

Into the Spider-Verse: Jake Johnson is Voicing Peter Parker

Jake Johnson is voicing Peter Parker in the animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The project is part of Sony’s ongoing efforts to expand the Spider-Man brand on the big screen, now that the eponymous web-slinger is officially part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Whereas Tom Holland is currently playing the live-action iteration of Peter Parker in the McU, Into the Spider-Verse is anchored by the Miles Morales character. The young web-slinger was introduced in the Spider-Man comic books in 2011 and has since made appearances in multiple animated TV series, including the ongoing Marvel’s Spider-Man on Disney Xd.
