THR's report indicates that Sony is hoping that Venom will reboot (or, at the very least, revive) their Spider-Man universe back to greatness.
Clearly, the studio are not wasting time and are now finalising negotiations with Tom Hardy and Ruben Fleischer who is directing it. In the comics, the journalist Eddie Brock becomes Venom after bonding with an alien symbiote, which was rejected by its previous host, Spider-Man.
Sonyannounced Friday that Hardy will play Venom/Eddie Brock in its upcoming "Venom" movie.
We don't know much about Sony's plans for the project just yet, but it will be R-rated, which is encouraging to hear and will undoubtedly make a bold statement of intent for the studio's own Marvel universe. The script was written by Scott Rosenberg (Gone in 60 Seconds) and Jeff Pinkner (The Amazing Spider-Man 2), though any more plot details have yet to be revealed. Hopefully this project will perform better than Sony's Spider-Man projects over the past several years. It's set to hit theaters October 5th, 2018. With Avi Arad, Amy Pascal and Matt Tolmach serving as producers. The character was previously portrayed by Topher Grace in Spider-Man: 3, directed by Sam Rami. In addition to appearing in the comics with Spider-Man, Venom has also been with Iron Man, Deadpool, Hulk, and many more Marvel characters.
British actor Tom Hardy, who played Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, has landed another villainous role in a big-screen, comic-book adaptation. So, you can only imagine my delight when I learned that Hardy will star in the Venom movie, with Zombieland'sRuben Fleischer directing.
Fans have longed for a solo Venom film and Sony seems to be listening, making it a top priority with a 2018 release. Production won't begin until this fall, and Sony Pictures will most likely reveal most of the cast-list at that time. Anyway, you can see Hardy showing off his fandom above.
He added: "And we will do whatever is necessary and we will work together to do whatever is necessary to help with fixing that". The new administration has sought to forge a united front with Latin American countries to pressure the Venezuela government.

Lieberman, who ran as vice president on Al Gore's 2000 ticket, became an independent after losing the Democratic primary in 2006. He has spent part of his time as the co-chairman of a group called No Labels that seeks solutions by both political parties.

The headline on the Times story claims: "Trump Told Russians That Firing "Nut Job" Comey Eased Pressure From Investigation". When asked about the Justice Department appointing Mueller as Special Counsel, the President deflected the question.
It has also been reported that Trump had told the Russians classified information about military operations involving Isis. The "nutjob" remarks are not the first things Trump said during his Lavrov meeting that have gained widespread attention.
Rosenstein said he consulted his staff as well as Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, and none of them recalled such a request. But Trump himself has already said that he was going to fire Comey regardless of any recommendation by the Justice Department.
