VENOM: Sony Has Reportedly Secured a 2018 Release Date For the Spider-Man Spin-Off

Looks like Sony is back in business with a Spider-Man spin-off featuring his symbiote counterpart, VENOM. This is per Exhibitor Relations:

Sony partnered up with Marvel Studios to reboot Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with this summer's SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING, as well as its sequel already scheduled for a 2019 release. However, a past news report about VENOM from March 2016 (see post link below) stated it would not be a part of the MCU. (BOO!)

Also last year, news hit that Sony brought on writer Dante Harper to write the VENOM script but not much has been heard in the past year about the spin-off until now. Stay tuned because more information is sure to hit the web sooner than later.

VENOM is now scheduled to release on October 5, 2018.

UPDATE: The Hollywood Reporter has corroborated this news.
