Sony Pictures has yet to confirm whether or not the production has in fact wrapped.
Venom follows the story of the traditional Spider-Man villain, who is the first character to become the alien symbiote in the comic books.
Tom was cast as the lead role in May last year, followed by the addition of Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed and Jenny Slater.
Venom marks the first time a Spider-Man villain will be getting their own standalone movie but the character did appear in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 with the character being played by Topher Grace.
The symbiote, created by David Michelinie and artists Todd McFarlane and Mick Zeck, was first introduced in the comic books back in 1988 and is still a fan favorite villain and has appeared in other Marvel Comics including Iron Man, Deadpool and the Hulk.
Venom has been slated for an October release date.
