With the revelation that Sony has put Venom back into development, it looks like the notion of building a franchise and a shared universe around Spider-Man has survived the end of the Amazing Spider-Man series and will become a part of Tom Holland's post-Civil War plans.
And, yes, it begs the question: Who will play Venom?
Of course, there are a lot of unanswered questions. With Tom Holland in high school, he's presumably not at the Daily Bugle, which means it would be difficult to put the whole Eddie Brock origin story together. Does that mean we skip right to Flash Thompson and take him from being Peter's bully to an antihero all in one shot?
Well, we're going to assume so, for the sake of argument, so that we can write this piece. But, really, who knows?
