This past weekend Sony released Venom. The film, directed by Ruben Fleischer and written by Jeff Pinkner & Scott Rosenerg and Kelly Marcel, stars Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, an investigative reporter who bonds with an alien symbiote and becomes a super powered anti-hero. This is Sony’s first attempt at releasing a film featuring the supporting characters of the Spider-Man universe, without the web-head himself. The success of this film will help determine the plans for a potential cinematic universe. The problem is, while the film had a great opening weekend, it’s hard to view it as anything more than something that had potential.
This week Sony releases the Spider-Man spinoff film, Venom. Sony owns the rights to Spider-Man and his vast library of supporting characters and villains.

So who is Venom, and what makes him worthy of his own film? Diving into the history of the character today, we’re looking at his comic book background and where he’s been seen before.

He had just finished the first draft of the script, which may also be rewritten depending on the direction Disney and Marvel decide to go.
