Tom Hardy stars as Spider-Man's arch-nemesis, in a movie without Spider-Man.
After he was asked what his favourite scene to film was, Tom gave the rather non-PR friendly line that his best scenes were "cut from the film", not holding back in showing his feelings towards the director's choice. You know what I mean?
"Venom is a byproduct of me wanting to draw a blue and red Spider-Man costume", McFarlane said. He ruins his own career and relationship in the first act of the movie, so he's already a mess before Venom shows up.
"'Venom' is a textbook case of a comic-book film that's unexciting in its ho-hum competence, and even its visual-effects bravura".
Scott Haze is also slated to appear as Roland Treece and Reid Scott will play Dr. Dan Lewis. The script - written by Jeff Pinkner, Scott Rosenberg and Kelly Marcel from a story by Pinker and Rosenberg - works to flesh out the dynamic between Eddie and Venom, but it often sacrifices actual development for a cheap joke (jokes that, admittedly, do get a laugh).
In fact, that might be a bit of an understatement, as it has been nearly universally panned.
The movie contained two end-credits scenes with intriguing revelations.
In the Marvel Universe, Venom is one of Spider-Man's greatest adversaries. When making any project, you always want more footage instead of less, so Hardy's comments from yesterday shouldn't have been automatically bad.
Spider-Man: Homecoming established the existence of aliens because it referenced the Battle of NY from Avengers: Assemble, which saw thousands of Chitauri warriors pouring through a wormhole and attacking the Big Apple. The Symbiote attached itself to Tobey Maguire's Peter Parker in the film, but once he figured out how to get rid of it, it looks like it went and attached itself to Eddie Brock.
Venom is a darker tale from the Marvel Comics superhero universe than what audiences have seen in recent films such as The Avengers, Ant-Man and Thor series released by Disney.
With all that hate thrown out, it's still tough to actually despise Venom; much of what Tom Hardy is doing is nonetheless entertaining, whether it be bad or good. While investigating one of Drake's experiments, Eddie's body merges with the alien Venom, leaving him with superhuman strength and power.
Who else is in it? Eddie soon runs afoul of world-renowned scientist and inventor Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed); they clash during an interview that goes so badly for Eddie that he's fired from his job and his fiancee Annie (Michelle Williams) promptly leaves him after she's canned from her job. The movie also stars Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed.
