Little is known about the long-planned Spider-Man spinoff, although recent rumors suggest the film by director Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland, Gangster Squad) will adapt the 1993 Marvel Comics miniseries Venom: Lethal Protector, in which symbiote host Eddie Brock turned from a villain to an antihero and moved to San Francisco.

Hunted by the father of one of his victims, he’s soon targeted by super-powered mercenaries who were offshoots of the Venom symbiote: Scream, Riot, Phage, Agony and Lasher. There are rumors that Michelle Williams will play She-Venom, and Riz Ahmed will become Carnage, so there’s a chance the movie will adapt the storyline with a new group of villains.

Fans definitely shouldn’t expect Peter Parker to team up with Venom, as Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has stated Venom will exist outside of Marvel Cinematic Universe continuity: “I think they’re focusing on making a great Venom movie, and I don’t know much about it, but I know they’re off to a good start with Tom Hardy.”

Written by Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg, Venom is targeted for release on Oct. 5, 2018.
