Marvel’s “Legends” spinoff “Venom” has a sequel, and it will be headed to theaters in 2018.
The new film will be directed by Mark Wahlberg, who will co-write and produce with James Gunn, who is known for his work on “Guardians of the Galaxy.”
It will be produced by the Wachowski siblings and their company, Industrial Light and Magic.
The film, which is expected to be released sometime in 2019, will feature new footage from the first film and will be set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, where the team of heroes was founded by Doctor Doom in the 1940s.
The team has since been fighting to bring back a younger, more badass version of the original team.
The Wachowskis have been a huge fans of the “Legendaries” franchise and were rumored to be interested in taking over the property.
But it was not to be.
“We have not heard anything yet, but we’re very excited about the idea,” the Wahlows told reporters.
“Mark Wahlberger is a huge fan of the ‘Legenders,'” said Wahlburgers co-president and general manager, Marc Platt.
“He has a history with Marvel.
It’s something that we really enjoyed working on and are excited to continue the legacy of the franchise.”
The Wahl-Gunn brothers said they are confident they will be able to bring a new take to the “legends” franchise.
“Our goal is to keep the ‘legends’ legacy alive and to create a whole new way to do a superhero movie, so that’s what we’re looking forward to doing,” they said.
“There are many reasons why we want to do it.
It seems to me to be the best way to keep things fresh.
It doesn’t take a lot of time and energy to make the story feel fresh and exciting.”
“Legenders” will debut in theaters on March 20, 2019.
