'Venom' (Oct. 5)

We've had plenty of films starring Marvel superheroes, but never any focused on the villains. That changes with this feature-length backstory of one of Spider-Man's greatest nemeses. Tom Hardy portrays Eddie Brock, a reporter who comes in contact with an alien symbiote that gives him terrifying powers. Directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland), Venom supposedly won't be featuring the Webslinger but will be sporting a horror-movie tone far different than the more playful Spider-Man: Homecoming. As for Hardy, he's already played monsters both real (1970s U.K. criminal Michael Peterson in Bronson) and fictional (Bane in The Dark Knight Rises) – so portraying a dark counterpart to your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man should be a breeze for such a badass.
