While doing the PR rounds for the upcoming reboot of the studio’s comic book film franchise Tolmach hinted that future installments of the newly relaunched series could possibly crossover with another Marvel Comics character film that they are currently developing – Venom.
What I’m trying to say to you without giving anything away is hopefully all these worlds will live together in peace someday… look for the worlds to make sense with one another.
Well, I can’t say that I really blame Sony for wanting to do try something like this in light of the box office monster that The Avengers has become. The studio currently holds the film rights to all the Spider-Man characters of which Venom, and his alter-ego Eddie Brock, is one.
Sony is currently developing a Venom film with Chronicle director Josh Trank overseeing the project. And while Venom’s origin in the comics is highly dependent on Spider-Man’s presence, Tolmach’s producing partner on Amazing Spider-Man, Avi Arad was quick to point out that that film will stand on its own.
It’s an Eddie Brock story… We want to be as close to the comics as possible. Especially in Eddie Brock’s story. But again, pseudo-sceince is becoming science. All these tidbits about webs, artificial webs, is a huge industry now. Spiderwebs have unique qualities that will be huge for communications, fibers, and so forth. So we have taken the approach that we want to make the huge amazing movie about Eddie.
So how close will the two films get? I can’t wait to see.
