As for directing side of things, I would havemore trust in Reuben Fleischer if he had made more than one good film, as he has with 2009's Zombieland. The big question coming out of this news will be how; if at all will Tom Hardy's Venom interact with Tom Holland's Spider-man. While Disney seems to be controlling the Spidey webs for now, perhaps this is what Sony was hinting toward when they talked about taking back sole control of the character a couple months ago, possibly planning for a Peter Parker and Eddie Brock showdown at some point.
Update: Kevin Feige has confirmed that Venom will not be apart of the MCU!
