The ones responsible for the film project

Although “Venom” is still in its early stage of development, it now has a script penned by “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” writer Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg. The two recently turned in their draft, while Dane Harper wrote the previous outline.

The organizers of the “Spider-Man” franchise Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are going to produce the upcoming film and also watch over the project. However, the film has yet to anchor its director.

The villain’s introduction

Venom, who was created by writer David Michelinie and artists Todd McFarlane and Mike Zeck, was introduced in 1988 as one of Marvel’s big bad and a rival of Spider-Man. He was first introduced in 2007’s “Spider-Man 3” played by Topher Grace.

He is an “alien symbiote, amazing, ” and for him to survive, he needs a human host that he would give incredible powers. But, it is not yet revealed how his story will be connected to the upcoming “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”

Its connection the new 'Spider-Man' movie

There are a lot of possibilities the movie “Venom” can be connected to the new “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” In fact, everyone thinks that he can be linked to the character of Eddie Brock, Peter Parker’s strong competitor in photography and very jealous of him, which is seen in “Spider-Man 3.”

However, as Tom Holland’s movie will tackle the young life of Parker, he will not be getting a job at the Daily Bugle, thus he won’t meet Brock yet.

But, “Venom” can feature the origin story of the latter.

In the 2003 “Ultimate Spider-Man,” Brock and Parker have been childhood friends when their respective fathers worked on developing the symbiotic suit called Project Venom. Then they get reunited in college and learned the strong capabilities of the suit.

From here, Brock has been overexposed to the symbiote that made transformed into Venom attacking Spider-Man every now and then.

As a matter of fact, he has a connection with the new movie’s villain Adrian Toomes/The Vulture (Michael Keaton). To recall, in “Ultimate Spider-Man,” he would be captured by Toomes and Bolivar Trask to be studied by the latter’s research team.
