With Spider-Man getting a big-screen reboot, it looks like the long in development Venom project could soon be back on track. And the film would have a connection to the newly established Spider-Man universe.
Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach, who both produced the S[odeu reboot and Venom movie, recently expressed their desires to see some connective tissue between the solo Venom film and the newly relaunched Spidey movies.
The connection could be Chris Zylka, who stars in Amazing as Flash Thompson.
Though the Venom character is most commonly associated with disgruntled Daily Bugle photographer Eddie Brock, there’s also an ongoing arc in the comics right now where Flash himself is wearing the living, soul-sucking suit: following a war injury that claimed both of his legs, Flash was tasked by the government with wearing the Venom symbiote and working on their behalf.
