Venom Movie Release Date Announced: Sony Dates Spider-Man Spin-Off 'Spider-Man' Spinoff 'Venom' Gets a Release Date So uh.. this is officially happening. I'm guessing this isn't connected to the MCU in any way. Scott Rosenberg (Con Air, Gone in Sixty Seconds, High Fidelity) and Jeff Pinkner (The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Jumanji reboot, The Dark Tower) have been hired to write the script. Starring Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock. Ruben Fleischer is set to direct.
