Venom Movie To Feature Carnage Fans have been hungry for a standalone Venom movie for some time.

Spider-Man: Homecoming Director John Watts Talks The Church Of Cinema John Watts, director of the upcoming film Spider-Man: Homecoming, was at a panel this morning at the CineEurope conference in Barcelona.

Marvel Cinematic Universe: Kevin Feige Won’t Rule Out R-Rated Films In The Future The Marvel Cinematic Universe has pretty much been on fire ever since it was first introduced with Iron Man back in 2008. Sure, there may have been a few duds along the way (Thor: The Dark World, Iron Man 2), but on the whole, the universe has remained strong as time has gone on. However, as Marvel Studios adds more and more films to its already-long list, one has to wonder for how much longer it can go.

The unprecedented deal between Marvel and Sony would allow the latter to reap the financial benefits of the character, while letting Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios dictate the character’s tone and feature him in their films.
