Questions where asked about the plot and storyline to ‘Venom’ and what we can expect to see unfold on screen in 2018. Ruben Fleischer shed some light on the direction of his upcoming film:

“We want to be as true as possible to the comics with our film. But our story is primarily based on, ‘The Lethal Protector’ and ‘The Planet of the Symbiotes’ books.“

“I give you my word of honor, that I’m going to do everything I can, to deliver the best Venom that I possibly can muster. Because I know how important he is to you and I know how important he is to the Marvel Universe.”
