Did You Know?
This film is well-known to have an extremely difficult production history. The film was originally envisioned as a direct spin-off from Spider-Man 3 (2007), though Topher Grace was stated not to return to the role. Shortly after the franchise was rebooted, the film was announced once again, though this time within continuity of the Webb series. Chris Zylka expressed interest in playing the characters Flash Thompson iteration, which was currently running in the comics at that time. Once The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) was released, Sony announced that "Venom: Carnage" would be a part of their Spider-Man Cinematic Universe. Soon afterward, Sony and Marvel decided to collaborate with the Spider-Man franchise, opting to reboot again and placing a Venom spin-off on hold. Though Sony wishes to continue with their spin-offs of the Spider-Man franchise, no word has been announced on future projects as of February 2018.
