Contrary to whatever hatred the naysayers have to spew, I’m still very much looking forward Venom because everything I’ve seen pertaining to it is so badass. The iconic logo may be absent from the titular anti-hero’s chest, sure, but I’m positive that I can work past the omission. After all, Dolph Lundgren didn’t rock the skull in 1989’s The Punisher, yet I’m able to appreciate that offering as a decent 80’s action film.
Getting back to the subject of Eddie Brock’s solo outing, I can’t help feeling spoiled by all the content hitting the web as of late. In this week alone, we’ve been treated to a featurette and the first full clip taken from the upcoming film that further hint we’ll be in for one hell of a viewing experience. And if that weren’t enough, a new TV spot has begun circulating as well.
Seen at the top of this article, the promo that’s been titled “Eats Humans Alive” continues showcasing the stunning action and visual effects that this flick is sure to boast. And as the tagline implies, the symbiote apparently does satisfy its case of the munchies at some point.

Still, it’s worth noting that we’re not to expect some sort of all-out gorefest because, don’t forget, the theatrical cut has been granted a PG-13 rating. As a result of that, chatter has begun making its rounds suggesting that the reasoning behind this is so that an eventual crossover with Spider-Man can come to fruition, but we’ll just have to wait and see with that one.
Less ultra-violence notwithstanding, you’ll be able to count me among those flocking to their local cinema in a matter of weeks. Plus, it’s very likely that an unrated cut will be released on home video in the not too distant future, so we’ll probably get to see what the symbiote is like with the gloves off anyway.
Venom opens in theaters on October 5th.
