Venom movie

Venom, the movie that is definitely real and not an elaborate early April Fools’ hoax, will be based on some very real comic book storylines.

Director Ruben Fleischer has the unenviable task of bringing the popular Spider-Man antihero to the big screen, sans Spider-Man. Thankfully, he has a plethora of Venom comic book arcs and issues to draw from. But no one Venom storyline will do — he’s going to adapt two.
