'Venom' Film To Be Based On Two Comic Book Runs

11:30 am				Published by: Staff Reporter								Hollywood

Venom, the movie that is definitely real and not an elaborate early April Fools' hoax, will be based on some very real comic book storylines.

It remains to be seen how close the Venom movie will adapt the comic book story as Spider-Man won't be featured in the movie, but Carnage will. That's a hard enough job to do even before you consider that most of Venom's best comic book arcs involve Peter Parker in some form.

The six-part story followed Eddie Brock leaving New York City for San Francisco, following an agreement with Spider-Man to end their constant fighting with a truce.

The 1993 Venom series, written by David Michelinie, was notably the first plotline in Marvel Comics history to paint Venom as an anti-hero, rather than a villain.

In Planet of the Symbiotes, published two years later and penned again by Michelinie, Earth is invaded by an army of symbiotes, forcing Venom, Spider-Man, and Scarlet Spider to team up to stop them and investigate a series of murders that Venom believed himself to have committed.

Reporter asks Sarah Huckabee Sanders if she has ever been sexually harassed
Huckabee said that Handler was "jealous" of his daughter due in part to the abortions she has had. False or misleading media reports, Sanders complained, became a "big problem" in previous weeks.

So, taking into account that these two comics serve as the primary inspiration for the Venom movie, the story likely finds Venom newly adjusted to San Francisco living and battling an invasion of alien symbiotes of some sort, although it's been rumored that Carnage is the primary villain, so he may also fit in there somewhere.

Coming out of this weekend's Brazil Comic-Con, Sony has released poster art for the Venom movie which teases the classic line from the comics, "We are Venom". They also feature more than enough symbiotic villainy to spark a whole new franchise for Sony, provided they play it all just right.

Filming on Venom is already underway with Ahmed, Michelle Williams, Jenny Slate, Reid Scott, and Scott Haze all joining Hardy.

Writers Scott Rosenberg (Pain & Gain, Jumanji), Jeff Pinkner (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) and Kelly Marcel (Fifty Shades of Grey) wrote the script for Venom, which has Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland, Gangster Squad) directing. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producing the movie, along with Amy Pascal.

What we do know is that Venom will be released on October 5, 2018 and production is underway.
