Sony Pictures plans to have a Venom movie in theaters by 2018, but we still have no idea what story they’ll be telling.
The toothy alien symbiote that famously corrupted Spider-Man during his “black-and-white suit” days has been around since 1984, so there’s plenty of comic book stories to choose from. The problem is that most of these tales will only work if Sony decides to do what they did with Marvel in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming and work within an already established cinematic universe. Venom’s story is so intrinsically linked to Peter Parker that it’s hard to separate the two without the aid of a sonic blaster, but as you’ll see, some of the character’s best and most famous storylines are actually pretty intriguing… and out of this world.

Sony’s attempts to make a Venom spinoff date back years — before the Marc Webb / Andrew Garfield Spider-Man era, all the way back to the tail end of the Sam Raimi / Tobey Maguire era. So far, they haven’t had much success. And the latest incarnation of the project seemed to be in jeopardy when the studio decided not to move forward with its Amazing Spider-Man franchise, instead rebooting the character as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
