With the news of Sony female superhero set in the Spider-Man universe also comes word about the Venom movie.
In its report, Deadline has it that the title of the Venom movie could be “Venom Carnage,” slated for a 2017 release as well.
The title and release date are not confirmed for Venom, but Alex Kurtzman will both direct and co-write the project.
If the “Venom Carnage” title does happen to be legit, it’s an obvious reference to the Spider-Man villain, Cletus Kasady, who becomes Carnage after acquiring the spawn of the Venom symbiote.
It’s also probably more than likely that Venom in the movie will not be a straight-up villain, but more of an anti-hero, with Carnage as the film’s main villain.
Sony also has the Sinister Six movie coming out in 2016, with plans for Amazing Spider-Man 3 in 2018.
If everything goes according to plan, it seems as if Sinister Six will debut in 2016 followed by the “Venom Carnage” movie and the female Spidey superhero flick in 2017, with Amazing Spider-Man 3 a year later.
