Tom Hardy to star in Spider-Man spin-off Venom


Tom Hardy, seen here at Bane, is playing Venom.

Sony Pictures is moving forward with their Venom film. The studio announced the casting in a black-and-white image on social media Friday with the actor donning a T-shirt emblazoned with the character's pearly whites. Sony has set a release date for October 5th, 2018 and has slated production to kick off before the end of the year. The new spinoff will be directed by Ruben Fleischer, who also directed "Zombieland".

Snapchat CEO burns Facebook on earnings call
Net loss rose from $104.6 million to $2.2 billion, which is thought to have been because of costs associated with the March IPO. Snapchat maker Snap issued its first earnings report as a public company on Wednesday, and, well, it could've gone better.

Venom has been one of Marvel's top villains and a Spider-Man fixture since he was introduced in 1988, created by writer David Michelinie and artists Todd McFarlane and Mike Zeck.

Trump said there was no "collusion between me and my campaign and the Russians", and that "the Russians did not affect the vote". The White House initially said Comey was sacked on the recommendation of the two top officials at the Justice Department.

The long-gestating project is focused on one of the webslinger's most notorious antagonists, previously brought to life in Spider-Man 3 by Topher Grace. So, clearly there's some animosity there.

Tom Hardy, who has been a huge fan of Venom - yes, yes that's him in a selfie he took announcing the role - was the meat and potatoes of Mad Max: Fury Road. Disgraced and suicidal after his false public accusation, Brock meets the alien symbiote, together becoming Venom and seeking out revenge against Spider-Man. Hopefully, it won't be an issue and this version of Venom (with a script co-written by Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner), will keep its Spidey mythos intact in some, even minor, way.
