The prospects of a Spider-Man sequel is still up in the air but Sony Pictures is not willing to wait anymore and has unveiled the possibility of spin-off movies being produced instead.
The first spin-off could be the Venom movie. The plan is to extend the life of the Spider-Man franchise, which is already showing its age. This is the same tactic that’s been used on the X-Men franchise with the upcoming Wolverine movie.
A script has already been commissioned and casting is a no-brainer with Topher Grace, who played the role of Venom in the third Spidey sequel. But agents are also eyeing the role for other actors because of the belief that Grace still cannot carry a picture on his own.
