Eminem releases Venom soundtrack song on surprise album
Yesterday, Eminem snuck in a song from the Venom soundtrack on his surprise album “Kamikaze,” which was released unexpectedly yesterday. The rapper revealed a 15-second clip of the song on Twitter yesterday, followed by the album’s full release. The track, titled “Venom – Music From The Motion Picture,” includes quite a few references to the film’s plot. You can hear the 15-second clip below, and let us know what you think of the track in the comments!
Tom Hardy will portray Eddie Brock/Venom on the big screen. Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze, Reid Scott, and Woody Harrelson co-star in the film. If the movie is successful, Sony plans to give films to other Spidey characters, with Jackpot, Black Cat, Kraven the Hunter and Silver Sable all candidates to get their own movie. Morbius the Living Vampire already has Jared Leto lined up for the title role.
Venom will hail from Sony’s Marvel Universe of characters and will not be a spinoff of the current Marvel Cinematic Universe, wherein Sony allows Spider-Man to be played by Tom Holland. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producing along with Amy Pascal, with Palak Patel and Eric Fineman overseeing for Columbia Pictures.
Directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland, Gangster Squad) and written by Scott Rosenberg (Pain & Gain, Jumanji) & Jeff Pinkner (The Amazing Spider-Man 2), the Venom film is set for an October 5, 2018 release date.
