The first and most consequential of Venom's credits stingers features a rather abrupt jump to Eddie being escorted into a supermax prison by a guard, apparently on assignment for his newly resumed journalistic career. A veritable mish-mash of unnecessary spin-offs have already been announced, including a nauseating Morbius project fronted by Jared Leto, but there may be scope for Sony to integrate with their Disney counterpart, Marvel Studios. "So in honesty, there is probably like seven hours or more of me playing Venom and enjoying myself". For the rest of us, we'll have to reserve judgement until we get a chance to seeVenom for ourselves. Venom itself stays hidden and mostly quiet as Eddie approaches the cell, and we see a man painting the word "welcome" in blood on the walls of his cage, which happens to be a lone box in the middle of an otherwise empty room.
Michelle Williams plays Anne Weying, the ex-fiance of Hardy's Eddie Brock. And while Eddie Brock has angst, it's trashy angst. Venom's humor and personality, which plays like a darker version of Spider-Man's corny dialogue mixed with Deadpool's incessant ramblings, is front and center in the film.
Michelle Williams co-stars in a generic Girlfriend Role as Eddie's ex-fiancee Annie, salvaged by one mitigating factor: When she gets a new boyfriend, he's portrayed as a likable person, and Eddie treats him with respect. This flick is even coming out in time for Halloween, so possibly the filmmakers are hoping that this will be 2018's hottest costume.
"Venom's plot is riddled with clichés, from Carlton's moustache-twirling to Eddie's every predictable move, and repeatedly abandons story elements".
The VenomRotten Tomatoes score is in, and it is not good, as it comes in with a "Rotten" 28% with 16 Fresh to 41 Rotten reviews; the audience score will be updated once the movie is released. When we sat down recently at the press junket for Venom with Tolmach and Arad, we asked about the status of two of those projects: Silver and Black, which is now being split into two separate movies instead of one (about female anti-heroes Silver Sable and Black Cat), and Morbius the Living Vampire, about a biochemist turned vampire who becomes a kind of superhero in his own right.
However, as comic books love to change the backstories of its characters with a bit of retroactive continuity (ret-con) future Venom films might just do the same so that this character can inevitably team up, or go, against Spider-Man. And we get Venom.
The $65 million opening is in line with the first Amazing Spider-Man movie ($62 million); Amazing Spider-Man 2 came in at $91.6 million. The constant negotiating over bodily control is fascinating and often quite amusing, thus validating the choice to put an accomplished talent like Hardy into the role and allowing him to give two unique and engaging performances simultaneously as Brock and Venom.
The point is, the developers at Insomniac Games took Spider-Man seriously.
The story is a Jekyll-and-Hyde tale where Hardy's journalist character, Eddie Brock, tries to keep Venom'sbad behavior under control. "There's an ambition to keep making these movies, and to figure out where each of these characters connect".
Venom opens in cinemas worldwide on 5 October, 2019.
