The director told fans which comics he was following for the film (Venom: Lethal Protector, Planet of the Symbiotes), what it was like on set, what the new film will be like, and to talk up lead Tom Hardy.

I can promise you badass action, Venom's dark humor, and I can also promise you an absolutely stunning performance by Tom Hardy.

If you zoom in and rotate the notebook Hardy is holding, you can see he's jotted some notes which could point to the film's plot.

In the original Marvel comics, Venom is an amorphous symbiote that takes the form of a super suit to feed on human hosts. Eagle-eyed fans noted that the notebook had questions such as how Life Foundation tests its pharmaceuticals and the allegations that the empire is known for in the comic. And in that short-lived series, it was revealed that a nefarious group called The Life Foundation had created five "children" of the original Venom symbiote. The film will be directed by Ruben Fleischer and is the first installment of Sony's Marvel Universe, shared cinematic universe that will include Silver and Black, a movie featuring Silver Sable and Black Cat, and the Morbius movie.

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. Introduced in 1988 in The Amazing Spider-Man #298, Drake is the head of the Life Foundation, and instrumental in capturing Venom and extracting the five other symbiotes from him.

Venom is scheduled for release on October 5, 2018.

Joining Hardy in the upcoming movie are Riz Ahmed (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Michelle Williams (Blue Valentine), Jenny Slate (Zootopia) and Woody Harrelson (the Hunger Gamesfranchise, True Detective).
