Venom is only months away from terrifying audiences on the big screen.
In an interview with Empire, director Rueben Fleischer made it clear that the focus is on Venom and hinted at future possibilities.
“This feels very much like Venom‘s movie,” Fleischer said. “It’s the introduction of the character. As to where it will go in future movies, and who he’ll run across, I can’t say.”
Fleischer also had high praise for Ton Hardy bringing the anti-hero to life.
“Tom’s just so incredibly entertaining to watch. Duality is clearly something that fascinates him, so when you watch the way he’s acting opposite himself, it’s really impressive; just how he’s able to conjure an entirely separate version of himself as the symbiote. It’s a tour de force performance.”
Sony has a lot riding on this film, but they are intent on having a Spiderverse without Spider-Man.
