CBMB: ‘Venom’ Poster Debuts

By Muuka Muyumba

Sony debuted the first look at the Venom movie poster today in anticipation of a trailer which is set to hit the internet soon. Some rumors have the trailer set to hit this Thursday for a prominent position ahead of Marvel’s Black Panther.

Venom stars Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock along with Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Reid Scott, Scott Haze and Jenny Slate. Not much is known of the storyline, but rumors have suggested that the movie may riff off the popular Venom storylines Lethal Protector and Planet of the Symbiotes.

Venom: Lethal Protector is a six-issue comic book series by David Michelinie and Mark Bagley that was released in 1993. In that storyline, Venom is in detente with Spider-Man and moves from New York to San Francisco where he runs across a band of symbiotes who are wreaking havoc through the city. Venom eventually teams up with Spider-Man to defeat his symbiotic siblings, Scream, Phage, Riot, Lasher, and Agony.

Planet of the Symbiotes was a five-issue comic arc written by Michelinie that was published in 1995 that featured Venom in an Amazing Spider-Man run where Brock again confronts his symbiotic siblings and an urge to kill.

Whatever the story of the movie, we apparently won’t be seeing Tom Holland in the film as Spider-Man, although recent rumors have the Marvel Cinematic Universe Spider-Man showing up in some costumed form.

Venom is set to hit theaters on October 5, 2018.
