It shouldn't come as any surprise that Venom is in part a Todd McFarlane creation. His creative hallmarks, emphasising the Gothic, the monstrous and the uncanny, are all over his design. It's also not a surprise that McFarlane has some opinions on the way his design was modified for the upcoming film, which casts Tom Hardy as the monstrous anti-hero (anti-villain? Hm).

It might be a match made in hell. Todd McFarlane, creator of Image Comics' flagship character Spawn, has announced he's partnering with Jason Blum and Blumhouse Productions -- the company that produced Jordan Peele's critically acclaimed horror-suspense movie Get Out -- to bring the character back to the big screen. According to Deadline, McFarlane will write the first draft of the screenplay and will also direct.
