Venom Early Reactions – Tom Hardy’s Film Belongs In The 2000s

Posted 2018/10/08 61 0

The first Venom responses are now online. The idea for a full-length film based on the iconic comic book character (not the alien suit), made by David Michelin and Todd McFarlane, was suggested at the end of the nineties. Unfortunately, New Line Cinema never got the film off the ground, despite the fact that a number of people were involved in the project since it was first proposed. It was only when Sony Pictures placed Venom in Spider-Man 3 that fans finally got a live-action adaptation of the bad guy-hero-anti-hero.

Producer Avi Arad was responsible for the recording of Venom in Sam Raimi’s third and final Spider-Man film. While he wanted the character to become an independent film in the late 2000s, it was until recently that things finally began to fall into place. And now Ruben releases Fleischer’s live-action Venom film, with Tom Hardy as the eponymous character, with a script by Jeff Pinkner, Scott Rosenberg and Kelly Marcel, this week in the cinema. It is the first part in Sony’s new Marvel universe, which coincidentally consists entirely of Spider-Man villains, but the question is whether it fulfills the hype?

After the world premiere screening of Venom in Los Angeles, CA, the first series of reactions to social media from film critics appeared on the internet. Below are some SPOILER-FREE responses. Look:



It seems that Venom is not an outright hit for Sony Pictures, nor is it a daredevil as some expected (although it is clear that some critics believe that the film is an unquestionable failure); it can sit right in the middle and possibly satisfy long comic fans, as well as a general audience that is not familiar with the character. When you consider how long the film has been in development, not to mention the fact that quite a few people behind the camera were responsible for the Spider-Man trilogy of Sam Raimi (including Spider-Man 3), it is not so strange that the Venom adaptation can feel like it should be in another era – specifically one prior to the modern comic book-movie renaissance ignited by Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight and Jon Favreau’s Iron Man.

However, it is worth noting that these are just reactions, not reviews. A more nuanced view of the film may be expected from critics as the release date of the film approaches. For now, Sony Pictures will watch how Venom performs at the box office during the opening weekend, which is an indication of the success of the film. In addition, the future of Sony’s new Marvel universe may depend on the commercial success of Venom.
