Sony has started Venom's marketing campaign, releasing a brand new first-look photo of Tom Hardy's Eddie Brock working as a journalist in San Fransisco.
Holding up a notebook, fans get to see a few lines of seemingly important text, and while the scribbles are a bit hard to read, it seems like Screen Rant's been able to decipher what's written in the notebook.
As expected, the text drops some major clues about Venom's storyline. Here are the questions were written down in Eddie Brock's notebook:
"So how exactly does the Life Foundation go about testing its pharmaceuticals?"
"What about the allegations your Empire is built on?"
"That you recruit the most vulnerable of the volunteers for the tests that more often than not end up […] them?"
The third question gets cut off by Brock's fingers, and though it's impossible to pick up the missing word, it seems likely that the missing piece would be either "killing" or "harming" these volunteers. Based on the tone of all the other questions, it seems like the Life Foundation is up to no good.
What's more exciting about these questions is because they hint at an adaptation of the Venom: Lethal Protector miniseries, confirming rumors that the Life Foundation would be the main villain of the film.
For those who aren't familiar with the series, the Life Foundation is an organization that offered wealthy individuals with a bunker to survive the end of the world, believing that the end of the Cold War would result in a nuclear meltdown.
After Venom crosses paths with one of their clients, The Life Foundations' CEO, Carlton Drake, decides to have Venom captured and uses his DNA to create five more symbiotes.
The question is though, will fans get to see the five symbiotes in the Venom movie, or will they have to wait for Scream, Agony, Phage, Riot, and Lasher to appear in the film's sequel?
Let's wait and see.
Venom is set for release on October 5, 2018.
