Marvel movies and more Marvel movies. It seems that that’s all we see these days, not to mention the new series popping up on Disney+ too.
But being how popular the Marvel Cinematic Universe is, it doesn’t really surprise me, yet there are some things they just can’t seem to make fit.
I’m talking about "Venom". Even though he in from Marvel, he hasn't been fully integrated into the MCU continuity yet. Maybe they are wanting to give it a little time? Especially as some people would call Venom a villain, hence the original Spider-Man movies, but I wouldn’t.
To me, he’s more of an anti-hero and there’s nothing wrong with those. The Venom movie got to shine a light on the character. That’s what I think was needed to really understand the complexity of Venom and how he comes to be with Brock and how they both end up understanding each other better and realizing that they might just need each other to survive.
The movie starts off with humans messing with something that really shouldn’t be messed with! An alien race that wants to take over the world but needs to use the right humans as hosts to do it. Everyone knows THAT isn’t a good idea! But you guessed it, they have their own plans and although you might feel like this is a story you have seen before - trust me once you watch Venom you’ll understand why it’s on a whole new level.
Jennifer Rhodes Cleere met Melanie back when True Blood was popular and they have been friends ever since. She loves TV (especially things that make you smile), Doctor Who, Finding new shows, and regularly provides awesome fandom items for Muser Giveaways. Jennifer is now a proud member of the VIPers - the Melanie's Muses Spotlight Feature Team!
Melanie - I just want to add in that even though I am not a huge Marvel fan, or a big Tom Hardy fan particularly, I really enjoyed this movie - WAY more than I was expecting to. I thought it was clever and funny. Yes the humor is dark but the conversations between Tom's character and the entity were very entertaining. I definitely recommend it and would also note that it totally works as a standalone. You don't need to know anything about Venom or the Marvel World to enjoy this!
