Venom without Spider-Man is stupid. This will bomb.

So originally the Suit came from another world during SECRET WARS. I wonder if that could be wedged into part of Infinite Wars or if they'll even drop The Beyonder in part 2.

I guess they could give us the fast version of Spiderman learning the suit is alive and discarding it somewhere.

Otherwise, intrigued with a villain in the starring role. I so badly wish Dr. Doom could have had his own movie like this but everything related to Fantastic Four is a huge mess.

I thought teaser looked alright. I always loved Venom as a character. But isn't he always a bad guy (more or less)? I know they have Agent Venom as an off-shoot but thats not what I mean here. The base character was pretty much always a bad guy and one of Spidermans biggest enemies. How are they going to work that here? Are they going to turn him into some kind of anti-hero? Cos that would suck.

Is this what drowning feels like? How many super hero movies do we need? When is it going to be enough! God!

As many as there can, as long as they’re good, just like video games....how many cod, open world and battleroyale games do we need?

This feels awfully close to Ghostrider level cheese.

A few factors might make the difference though like Tom Hardy and a R Rating.

The whole living costume thing also makes me think of Spawn; let's hope this turns out better.

3,000. All we need is 3,000 of each.

So no more super hero movies.

2,850 more CoD games and 2,955 more BR games.

I have to say, I don’t really like the look of this Venom form.

Definitely a rental. This is going to bomb in theater. I like the voice but still do not like the look of Venom.

Even with no spider logo on the chest, the non-Spider-Man origin makes absolutely no sense, as he still resembles Spidey way too much, IMO. I know that they sort of retconned the comic, but I just think it's dumb. Venom was always just a great side effect of writing off Spider-Man's awesome new 80s black costume, that people were just not ready for back then. Honestly, that costume was fantastic to begin with.

It might be entertaining since my expectations are so low. Can't be worse than Spiderman 3.

It's like they combined SPAWN and Ghostrider.

Seriously though, I think there is a tiny slim chance a R - Rating could make this salvageable. I'm not seeing strong confirmation anywhere yet on the actual rating though.

With what I'm seeing, I kind of feel like this production should have instead done an adaption of the game PROTOTYPE.
