Sony Injecting More "Venom" Into The Mainstream

Further to Sneak Peek's first reports September 2009, Sony continues to develop a "Venom" stand-alone feature, based on the Marvel Comics' character, with Josh Trank ("Chronicle") in negotiations to direct.

The character of 'Venom' was born to a race of extraterrestrial parasites, that lived by possessing the bodies of other life-forms, endowing victims with enhanced physical abilities, at the cost of fatally draining them of adrenaline.

'Spider-Man' was the first host the symbiote merged with, before its evil motives were clear. After Spider-Man rejected the creature, the symbiote merged with other hosts, beginning its reign as a super-villain.

Spider-Man first encountered the Venom symbiote in Marvel's "Secret Wars" #8.

After Spider-Man rejected the alien, the symbiote merged with 'Eddie Brock' in "The Amazing Spider-Man" #299 (March 1988).

The Venom symbiote's current host is 'Mac Gargan', the Spider-Man comic book villain formerly known as the 'Scorpion'.
