SDCC 2018 – Venom panel reveals the movie will be gory as heck… and they believe Venom and Spider-man WILL meet. Some day.

July 21st, 2018 by Marc Comments

So the Venom panel just ended at Hall H and we know a few new things about the movie…

Star Tom Hardy and director Ruben Fleischer both showed up for the fun.

“My son is a massive Venom fan, and he was a strong influence on my why I should play Venom specifically. I wanted to do something my son could watch… So I did something where I bite people’s heads off.”

They also showed a clip from the movie where Venom… bit off someone’s head: “Eyes. Lungs, pancreas, so many snacks. So little time”

This movie isn’t messing around.

The footage revealed that Venom will face off against another symbiote in the movie. Fleischer later said this was Riot, a symbiote who can transfer to other people, so you never know who it will be in the film. The filmmaker also hinted other villains could be in the movie, noting.

“We are planning a big world with this Venom story,” said Fleischer.

But what about the MCU crossover rumours? Will Tom Hardy’s Spidey appear?: “I can speak for myself when I say I would be really excited to go see that film, so I have to see the studio is thinking the same way, and at some point down the road they are going to run across each other’s paths.”

At this point Hardy chipped up?  “What, go toe-to-toe with Tom Holland?

“Sure!”

Venom arrives on October 5th

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
