Venom will be kicking off Sony’s Marvel Cinematic Universe, based in the mini series Venom: Lethal Protector. Written by David Michelinie with art from Mark Bagley, Sam Delarosa, and Ron Lim.
In the Lethal Protector Series we see Venom and Spider-Man have struck a truce after their long rivalry. Venom relocates to San Fransisco to start over but is aggressively pursued by The Life Foundation. They extract five bits of symbiote from Venom and bond them to their own stooges creating Phage, Scream, Agony, Lasher, and Riot.
Venom will star Tom Hardy (Eddie Brock/Venom), Michelle Williams (Anne Waying), Riz Ahmed (Dr. Carlton Drake), Woody Harrelson, sailor Larocque (Donna Diego/Scream), and a rumored appearance by Tom Holland (Peter Parker/Spider-Man).
Venom hits theatres October 5th.
