The Column: Some Stuff You Need To Know About Venom!


Welcome to the column where we talk about something new that is hitting the big screen. Comic booky of course.

So yeah VENOM. I am pretty sure we all know about it. Don’t we?

First, Venom . Just some basics to enjoy the film.

Venom is made up of a symbiote and human host. The symbiote is from outer space. It first actually attached to Spider-man, but then had many hosts, but the most prominent one and the guy in the movie is Eddie Brock.

So what powers does he have? Basically all of Spider-man and maybe a bit stronger. He has some weaknesses like fire and sSonics. He is also much more scary than Spider-man.

Venom is traditionally an Amazing Spider-man villian. He is most popular for that. He appeared in the Spider-man 3 movie if you remember.

So, yeah that is all you need to know about Venom to basically enjoy the film

My opinion

Venom is popular. I have to say I am a bit apprehensive about this film as a whole and I have been from the start. Actor Tom Hardy as Venom was a major get. That is one of the biggest things it has in its favour.

Venom is popular enough to hold his own film. I also think they could have waited and set it up with Spider-man before going solo. The PG 13 rating does give me hope for a eventual fight with Spider-man. Trust me THAT will be awesome.

While it is a good thing that the Venom film is gonna be coming, there is a very big fear of it being a success. There are rumors floating around that if it becomes a success, Sony is moving with a whole universe of Spider-man based characters universe, only with no Spider-man. Yeah that is a stupid idea which I can’t even believe is in consideration.

Whatever reason I have given, I am probably still gonna go and watch it this week. I am pretty bored and it will be a good time at least.
