Not officially confirms, but close as close can be. The title of the article is "Real Men Wear Black" with the subtitle, " An inside look at Spidey's new threads(the black costume) and Venom's debut as director Sam Raimi's new all-star Web-head villain" The article goes into the issue vaguley saying that although there has been no official word from Sony or Marvel, actor Thomas Haden Church has let slip to sources that "[Sam's] been showing me [stuff] since the beginning of last summer," saying "This is what we're going to be doing and this is what Venom is going to be doing. It is a massive, massive process." Something I thought you all may enjoy. I just received the issue today.
