The trouble with movies...

...is that there's sometimes FAR too much human interaction.

Transformers - FAR too much human
TMNT - Fantastic as it concentrates on the Turtles
Spiderman - Far too much teenage kid

I don't really 'care' that much for the person, as in the meat suit that Venom wears, when I'm watching a film that's supposed to be about Turtles, robots, or an alien parasite that needs a host etc. I want 20 minutes of Tom Hardy and 60+ mins of Venom.

What the hell am I looking at? The venom i know is a villain. Have they run out of heroes to make movies so now they are doing villians? How about some original IP then?

I need a lot more before I even bother Netflixing this shiz.

A decent break down of the current theory about Venom and the MCU.

Venom has skirted the line between villain and anti-hero for the majority of the character's existence. After Flash Thompson got it and went into space with the Guardians of the Galaxy, the symbiote ended up getting cleansed/healed/repaired by its species, so it stopped being crazy and violent. After a bunch of shit, the symbiote ended up with Eddie Brock again and was more or less a hero.

Basically, the symbiote went insane because of some of its former hosts and was "fixed" by its species. Now, it wants to be more of a hero than anything else.

It seems like they are just making a Spider-Man movie without Spider-Man. I'm OK with that. It could be good or it could be crap. Knowing that Sony learned a hard lesson with the last few Spider-Man films, I'm betting that it will be pretty good.

Thanks for the explainer, but Sony, if you are listening:
