New Film Discussion: ‘Venom’ (2018) Open Thread

Venom hits theaters today! Sony is hoping this will launch a Marvel Universe of their own. Tom Hardy steps into the role of Eddie Brock/Venom. Critics have been mixed on the film calling it a lot of fun, but also chaotic and messy.

What did you think of the film? Was it an improvement over Venom in Spider-Man 3? How was Venom’s dialogue? Would this have been better with an R-rating? What did you think of the post-credits scene? Do you want to see Tom Holland’s Spider-Man crossover with Venom?


Synopsis: Investigative journalist Eddie Brock attempts a comeback following a scandal, but accidentally becomes the host of an alien symbiote that gives him a violent super alter-ego: Venom. Soon, he must rely on his newfound powers to protect the world from a shadowy organisation looking for a symbiote of their own.
