Although it's already started production, little information has been released about the upcoming Venom film. However, new character descriptions for the movie provide details about five of Tom Hardy's co-stars.
The character breakdowns, which can be read below, come from That Hashtag Show and serve to further speculation that the film will adapt David Michelinie, Mark Bagley and Ron Lim's 1993 Venom: Lethal Protector series.

Venom: Lethal Protector sees Venom and Spider-Man reach an agreement that they will leave each other alone if Venom refrains from committing any more crimes. Venom moves from New York City to San Francisco, where the father of one of his victims hunts him down. In the story, the Life Foundation, a group of survivalists, forces the Venom symbiote to spawn five offspring: Scream, Riot, Phage, Agony and Lasher. Carnage is also rumored to play a part in the film.
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige said in June that Spider-Man would not make an appearance in the film, so it's likely that major changes to the story would have to occur.
Directed by Ruben Fleischer and written by Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg, Venom is expected to hit theaters on Oct. 5, 2018. The film stars Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock/Venom. Jenny Slate, Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed will also star in the film, though their current roles are unknown.
