Venom is the first in a series of movies set within a cinematic universe populated by characters from Spider-Man comic books. It stars Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, a man who is taken over by the titular alien symbiote, and is set to hit theaters in October. Hardy has now revealed that the movie has finished shooting.
The actor marked the end of production by posting a behind-the-scenes image on Instagram. It’s captioned “Wrapped life back Bye.” Check it out below:
We are yet to see any footage from Venom, but last month the first official–and somewhat boring–image was released. This followed some on-set videos and an early promotional banner. The movie hits theaters on October 5, 2018, and also stars Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams, and Woody Harrelson. Zombieland‘s Ruben Fleischer is directing.
Although Sony made a deal with Disney in 2015 to allow Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the former studio still retains the overall movie rights to characters from the comics. In terms of other Spidey spin-offs, Venom will be followed by Silver & Black. That movie will focus on Silver Sable and the Black Cat, and is currently set to arrive on February 8, 2019.
In related news, Sony recently released a trailer for a new animated new Spider-Man movie titled Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse. This one focuses on Miles Morales, who started life in the Ultimate Universe but has since crossed over into various other Marvel comic realities. Check it out here.
