New rumour suggests there won’t be much Venom in ‘Venom’…


News overnight from Manabyte (via ComicBookMovie) regarding Venom. The site is reporting a new rumour which suggests the villainous symbiote won’t have much screen time in his own movie.

Citing a plot synopsis which is doing the rounds in Hollywood it seems to fit with rumours we have been hearing. The breakdown suggests that more much of the movie the symbiote will take the form of dark veins seen on the body of the host.

Whilst the trademark anger and some of the powers will be visible the suit itself will be missing for much of the film. It is said the suit will manifest itself for the films climactic battle. That battle is said to last only a couple of minutes on screen.

The report seems to confirm the news there will be three symbiotes in the film: Venom; the villain and a third which kills its host early on.

Whilst this remains rumour it does point to a drastic deviation from the source material…

One of Marvel’s most enigmatic, complex and badass characters comes to the big screen, starring Academy Award® nominated actor Tom Hardy as the lethal protector Venom.

Venom stars Tom Hardy in the lead role. Supporting cast includes Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze, Reid Scott and Woody Harrelson. The film is directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) from a script by Scott Rosenberg & Jeff Pinkner. Executive producers are David Householter, the legendary Stan Lee and Kelly Marcel.

The film arrives in  cinemas October 5, 2018! For more check out our Venom archive here!
