At Comic-Con Experience 2017 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Sony Pictures revealed that the upcoming Venom movie would be based on two comic arcs: Lethal Protector and Planet of the Symbiotes. These would presumably be the basis for the origin of Venom and expand the symbiote universe.

Lethal Protector is a six-issue mini-series from 1993 written by David Michelinie and drawn by Mark BagleySpider-Man and Venom decide to leave each other alone as long as Venom doesn't commit and crimes, so Venom heads to San Francisco. Spider-Man and Venom later team up to fight five new symbiotes: Scream, Phage, Riot, Lasher, and Agony.

Planet of the Symbiotes was a five-issue mini-series from 1995 written by Michelinie and pencilled by five different artists: Ralph Cabrera, Joe St. PierreKyle HotzDarick Robertson, and Steve Lightle. This storyline also saw Earth invaded by an army of symbiotes.

It's already been announced that Spider-Man won't be in the film, so expect no Spider-Man and a ton of symbiotes in San Francisco.

Venom, directed by Ruben Fleischer, is set to release October 5, 2018 and stars Tom Hardy, Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams, Jenny Slate, Reid Scott, and Scott Haze.
