Sony is set to debut their own “Marvel Universe” with Venom next year, starring Tom Hardy. Production is starting soon than some may have thought, and one of the locations seems very familiar to the character.
According to OmegaUnderground, they’ve confirmed that the film will be shooting in Atlanta and New York City, and the start date September 1st.
It seems like Sony is confident enough to get the cameras rolling sooner rather than later, with ‘Zombieland’ Director Ruben Fleischer at the helm. The first location mentioned is Atlanta, which is known to be the shooting place for most of the MCU films. The second location, New York, is much more familiar to the character. The state is where the classic origin story of Eddie Brock is told. Whether or not there will be any references to Spider-Man is unclear but it seems almost inevitable.
Sony’s Venom is set to release October 5th, 2018.
