Speaking at the Sao Paulo Comic Con Experience, Venom star Tom Hardy has finally confirmed longstanding rumors that the film will be inspired by the classic Lethal Protector comic book miniseries. Sony’s Venom is one of the more intriguing films due out next year. It’s the first of a proposed series of Spider-Man spinoffs, with each movie starring members of the webhead’s rogues’ gallery. It’s uncertain at this stage whether or not the movies will be part of the MCU, however, and fans have been wondering how you can possibly make Venom work without Spider-Man.
