For the past several years, new Marvel movies have been dropping on Netflix but Venom sadly won’t be among them for those in the United States. Here’s a complete look at Venom and if and when the new Tom Hardy movie will be coming to Netflix.
Venom will be in theaters soon (in the US) on October 5th. Other regions may differ. Starred by Tom Hardy, who is best known for previous successes such as Taboo and Peaky Blinders and Legend. Set in the Marvel universe, the 2018 movie will focus on one of Spiderman’s greatest enemies, Venom. Although Spider-man won’t be present (or at least hasn’t been announced to yet) is set to be dark and harrowing take on the classic Spider-man villain.
Netflix USA will not be receiving Venom in the near-term. Netflix is receiving regular updates of new Marvel movies and will continue to be in line for several more films.
Sony Pictures, which is also distribution Venom, currently owns the Spider-man licensing. Much like how Spider-man: Homecoming didn’t come to Netflix, Venom will follow suit. Sony Pictures tends to keep their movies away from Netflix in the short term although it’s worth noting that multiple movies do eventually
The only thing that can be relied upon by those living in America is Netflix's addition of Spider-man 3 this year. Although the film featured Venom well, most people found it to be one of the worse Toby Maguire films as Spider-man. The movie was added on September 1st and hasn’t yet been announced when it’s leaving.
Spider-man Homecoming has not been released in other Netflix regions, which means that Venom will be delayed to other Netflix areas. While some countries, such as the United Kingdom, will already have contracts with Sony Pictures, there are currently no preexisting agreements with Netflix.
