I may be in the minority here, but I actually quite liked 2018s Venom. It was like a superhero movie jacked all the way up to eleven. The crazy things were crazier, the action bloodier and the aliens…weirder. And by the look of this new trailer that dropped earlier today, the sequel isn’t going to be dialling anything back.
The total bizarre-ness is what makes this movie series stand out to me. The crazy relationship Eddie, and apparently everyone around him, has with venom is itself humorous. And Venom’s personality as well, which we got to see a little of in the first film, but now it seems like they have really kinda…bonded…?? And we are going to see a lot more then just venom wanting to eat people, I mean, there will no doubt be plenty of that too, but also more humour and conversation.
Woody Harrelson is a great choice to play the unhinged Cletus Cassidy, and I cannot wait to see what we get from him narratively speaking. It is looking like Sony are going balls to the wall with their Spiderverse, and my bet is that they are setting up for some kind of Sinister Six storyline. Good luck to them, so far I have had a decent time with all the Spiderverse films, so here’s hoping this one is the same.
Are you looking forward to this one? What were your thoughts on the first film? Lets chat in the comments.
