If you are unfamiliar with the Venom character, or your only knowledge of him comes from Topher Grace's portrayal in Spiderman 3 let me fill you in on the backstory of Venom. Venom was created back in '82 by a comic book fan who wanted to see Spiderman in a different costume. Marvel paid the fan $220 (~$565 today) for his idea. The black symbiote suit was created by a machine that fabricates any type of clothing the user can think of. It wasn't until Peter Parker took the costume to Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic) for examination, that they found out the clothing was alive. Since then Venom was gone from being one of Spiderman's greatest villains to an anti-hero (like Wolverine or The Punisher), and most recently an agent of shield.
movie is expected to be released on October 5, 2018. I can't wait to see how this film will come out. My fingers are crossed for Carnage to finally make his debut and be the villain for this movie.
