Recently, director Fleischer and actor Tom Hardy confirmed the sources of the movie during Sao Paulo's Comic-Con Experience 2017. The Sony-Marvel movie will be based on two '90s comics — a six-issue miniseries from 1993 'Lethal Protector' and a five-issue event from 1995 "Planet of the Symbiotes."

Besides Tom Hardy, other actors including Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams, Jenny Slate, Reid Scott and Woody Harrelson have joined the Sony production. Recently rumors suggested that Spider-Man aka Tom Holland will also be featured in the Venom movie.

The Venom symbiote has already appeared in many Spider-Man comics since its inception in 1988. Since then, Eddie Brock aka Venom has appeared alongside Spider-Man, Deadpool, Hulk, Iron Man and many superheroes.

Venom once appeared in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3 in 2007, while the character was portrayed by Topher Grace.
