Xben3000 here with some interesting movie news today! Sony has announced that Tom Hardy has been cast to play Eddie Brock(Venom) in the upcoming Venom film that is being produced for Sony’s Marvel Universe. We also know that the film will be released October 5, 2018 with production starting this fall. I honestly was not expecting any casting news anytime soon with this film, but it seems Sony is dead set on making this a reality.
I mean props to them, but Venom is not my favorite Spider-Man villain. I’m interested in seeing how they go about doing this film. I am guessing we will see things from Eddie’s perspective, but will this lead to him fighting Spider-Man at the end of the film, or would it be something else. With this film not being in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will people be less inclined to check it out?

Tamashii Nations has recently updated their site with future releases. Among the items is S.H.Figuarts Spider-Man (Homecoming), which is an August 2017 release. Having this release date one could expect this item to coincide with Spider-Man: Homecoming’stheatrical release in Japan. Even though, the figure is titled Homecoming based on the upcoming film this incarnation of Spider-Man made his debut in Captain America: Civil War.
Now, Tamashii Nations describes this figure, as the “definitive edition” of the character, and I would not argue that! The image gallery goes to prove how definitive this figure is meant to be. The figure will have multiple heads, additional hands, webbing effects, a backpack, and a “wider” range of articulation. S.H.Figuarts Spider-Man (Homecoming) has the MSRP of 6264 yen however, that price will vary between retailers. Pre-Orders for this item are stated to open on Monday, April 3rd.
Following the events of Captain America: Civil War, Peter Parker, with the help of his mentor Tony Stark, tries to balance his life as an ordinary high school student in Queens, New York City with fighting crime as his superhero alter ego Spider-Man as a new threat, the Vulture, emerges.
Coming at you with some Spider-Man news. We have the second trailer for the upcoming Spider-Man Homecoming series. I have to say after viewing the trailer I still wish it was Miles instead of Peter. That grip aside, I’m looking forward to seeing this film. The video is down below in case you missed it or you just want to watch it again.
