Crave Online brings us the following:
Matt Tolmach was more than willing to illustrate his team's thought processes about these issues, to reveal how much time has passed between Amazing Spider-Man and Amazing Spider-Man 2, and even gives us an update about when we're getting the Venom solo movie we were promised a few years ago. Short answer? Not anytime soon, but I'll let Tolmach tell you in his own words, straight from San Diego Comic-Con 2013.Then later.
I heard that the original plan was to incorporate Venom at some point as a solo film, and then maybe tie him into the franchise later. Is Venom still part of your plans?
There’s nothing formal or official, but it’s always been a dream to make that movie. We’re just not there yet. Right now we’re sort of fixated on this. But is there a sense that down the road things are going to happen? Sure.
