Trivia

This film is well-known to have an extremely difficult production history. The film was originally envisioned as a direct spin-off from Spider-Man 3 (2007), though Topher Grace was not slated to return to the role. Shortly after the films were rebooted, the film was announced once again, though this time within continuity of the Webb series. Chris Zylka expressed interest in playing the characters Flash Thompson iteration, which was currently running in the comics at that time. Once The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) was released, Sony announced that "Venom: Carnage" would be a part of their Spider-Man Cinematic Universe. Soon afterward, Sony and Marvel decided to collaborate with the Spider-Man films, opting to reboot again, and placing a Venom spin-off on hold. Though Sony wishes to continue with their spin-offs of Spider-Man, no word has been announced on future projects as of February 2018. See more »

Very fun movie
3 October 2018 | by GuanXingSee all my reviews

I don't know what's going on with all the negative reviews. People are really hard to please! I went to see that movie without any real expectations and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

  • Tom Hardy does a fantastic job
  • Venom is an interesting and fun character
  • The plot is fairly classic for this type of movie; nothing good or bad about it
  • The special effects are great - I loved the transformation scenes.
Overall, I recommend it if you like the genre, want to have a good time with a dose of laughters and aren't overly hard to please.
