Still, most comic-book movie fans can not envision Venom in a universe without Spider-Man (so far, at least).
With several comic book adaptions, long have critics lambasted the dichotomy of hero and villain portrayed as opposing people with identical superpowers. It's not scary, the CGI is messy, the characters are flat, and the laughs are few and far between. I didn't find this take on Venom all that evil, and in fact it comes off more as a comedy act between Brock and Venom, who barks instructions and offers advice from the inside once the film hits its groove. Acclaimed Oscar-nominated actor Tom Hardy plays the lead role of reporter Eddie Brock who gets infected by an alien symbiote, that gives him a dual personality and makes him into Venom.
Eddie becomes infected with the space parasite as he tries to expose the devious machinations of a Bay Area tech mogul (Rogue One's Riz Ahmed). And if you don't, then here is the information about the two scenes that come after the movie.
Except for sound-stage indoor shots in Atlanta, "Venom" is nearly exclusively filmed on location in San Francisco and it looks great! The first, mid-credits, is a shameless plug for Venom II, or Venom-er, or whatever they plan to call it.
Hardy, meanwhile, has also hinted that some Venom sequels could indeed be in the works soon, telling Total Film: 'We've signed up for three of them.

It is a very hard group, yes. "You would be getting another reason to criticise me, I think you have had enough". We need to move the ball quicker and create more chances.

According to a statement released today by the online retail giant, the wage increase will affect more than 350,000 workers. Last month, he introduced a bill that would impose a 100% tax equal to the amount of federal aid received by employees.
Venom does none of this.
The actor plays the title character as well as the symbiote's investigative journalist counterpart Eddie Brock, while Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams and Jenny Slate also appear in the superhero movie. After a series of lethal human trials, one internal scientist turns whistleblower and offers Brock the opportunity to prove Drake's crimes.
With Venom in his body, Eddie fears losing his mind and his humanity. Will there be negotiations over who gets which villain going forward? David Michelinie and Todd McFarlane created Venom as we now know it today when it made an appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man #300 (May 1988).
As envisioned by Director Ruben Fleischer, the movie was inspired by the comic book quote: "You're Eddie Brock". Venom itself stays hidden and mostly quiet as Eddie approaches the cell, and we see a man painting the word "welcome" in blood on the walls of his cage, which happens to be a lone box in the middle of an otherwise empty room.
In the comics, Kasady actually ends up acquiring another symbiote named Carnage, who is one of Venom's offspring. There, I said it: Tom Hardy has managed to be boring, and whether the responsibility for his charisma-ectomy goes to the listless script or his own actorly choices, I can't say.
The makings of an interesting science fiction adventure film are present in Venom, but the way it is put together make the whole thing feel woefully incomplete and tonally schizophrenic. The battle ends when Venom rips open the fuel tanks to the shuttle just as it's trying to take off. Riot (and Drake) are killed in the explosion, although it's hinted that a piece of Riot could still exist in Venom after the two briefly combined into a single symbiote. That's partly because it belongs in the corny mid-2000s era of Catwoman or Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man, and partly because it's so aggressively ridiculous-a far cry from the calculated Marvel Studios formula.
