New reports on the Venom movie are in and it looks like Tom Hardy is the only bright spot coming out of this mess. The Hashtag Show reported that instead of Eddie Brock coming into contact with the original alien symbiote (the Klyntarr,) a parasite that drove it’s connected human mad over time, this version will use the Ultimates Venom, a biosuit created by the parents of Eddie Brock and Peter Parker to help people with cancer. This is not one of our favorite iterations.
The movie is also looking to cast Ann Weying, a lawyer who is also Brock’s ex-wife in the comics. I’m all for that, but Weying does end up becoming She-Venom at some point, which we only oppose because the name is ridiculous. There’s still time, Tom. Run. Run away.
