Everything you need to know about Venom
(most of which won’t be in the movie)
While we don’t normally go into the real of comics whether its’ printed, MCU or Sony. It’s just too hard to ignore the change in tones us fans are finally getting on the cinematic screen. For some reason its okay for us to read about violence and them make money off of it. Getting a studio to produce a movie that truly embraces all aspects of the comics we so love. Even though Venom is sporting a meager PG 13 rating instead of the much preferred “R” rating I still think it’s a step in the write direction!
In the Marvel Comic Universe (not to be confused with MCU, the Marvel Cinematic Universe) we first see the black symbiote (which later becomes Venom) in #8 of the 12 issue limited series of Secret Wars. It was a series in the early 80’s about the Beyonder taking a ton of heroes and villains and making them do battle for an “Ultimate Prize”. But that’s a story for different time. So long story short Peter gets rid of the suit using church bells, the symbiote doesn’t like loud noises.
The suit is deeply saddened by this because it had actually started to care deeply for Peter Parker. Eventually it finds Eddie Brock. Brock at the time was about to commit suicide and sensing his pain the symbiote bonded with him. This didn’t turn out so well and the symbiote was twisted and became more violent. What the symbiote didn’t know was that Eddie was also hurt by Peter Parker due to a scandal at the Daily Bugle which caused him to lose his job and therefor lead him to commit suicide.
Because of this the combination of Eddie and the symbiote became Venom and had a serious grudge with Spider-Man. In the comics Venom was one of Spider-Man’s greatest foes. Unfortunately, I don’t think Spider-Man is going to make an appearance in the movie due to the fact that Marvel owns the rights to Spider-Man and this movie is being put out by Sony. We should have seen Andrew Garfield in the movie, or at the very least Toby Maguire. Venom is on theaters October 5th. Don’t forget to stick around for the carnage in the post credit scenes
