It Sounds Like The VENOM Movie Will Be Based On This Classic Comic Book Storyline

There's been a lot of speculation surrounding what direction Venom is going to take Eddie Brock in and now a new report sheds some light on what we should expect from the upcoming comic book adaptation.

There appear to be a lot of mixed feelings toward Venom. On the one hand, the Spider-Man spinoff is assembling one hell of a cast but on the other, the fact it takes place away from the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a world which may not include Peter Parker is more than a little infuriating. However, we have some good news today as it appears as if the movie is going to adapt Venom: Lethal Protector.

In that story, Venom has made an agreement with Spider-Man that they'll leave each other alone on the condition that Eddie Brock doesn't commit any crimes. After moving to San Francisco, it's not long before Venom is tracked down by a group of super-powered mercenaries looking to take him down.

According to this new report, Venom will be shot in San Francisco for a period of time and Sony is looking to cast mercenaries for the movie. That's more than likely The Jury, the group from Lethal Protector whose armour is based on stolen Stark designs (which could link Venom to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a very loose way). Taking Venom to California
certainly helps differentiate it from Spider-Man's New York-based adventures and is a good way of paying homage to the source material.
