The New Venom Movie Review by Vincent Schilling, ICT

“This week I want to discuss the new Venom movie trailer that has JUST come out much to my delight. The film stars Tom Hardy as the investigative journalist Eddie Brock. Hardy is a great actor known for such films as Dunkirk, The Revenant, Mad Max: Fury Road and The Dark Knight Rises.” V. Schilling, ICT

They are Venom — and they’re 50 shades of scary.

Excerpt: About Venom, By Vincent Schilling, ICT

Venom, technically-speaking, is an alien symbiote aka a parasite of sorts that embeds itself into its human host and feeds off of their emotions. They not only grab onto your neurological system and can control body function, but also can embed themselves into your thought processes, thus they can communicate through your thoughts with telepathy.

Venom originally came to existence in The Amazing Spider-Man #252 (May 1984) – though Venom at that time was a bit abstract. Spider-Man’s costume was revealed to be an alien. Venom’s full first appearance was in The Amazing Spider-Man #300 (May 1988)…The Venom movie takes place in the Sony Marvel Comics Universe, so no Spider-Man. Venom has even lost the spider emblem on his chest. During the trailer, there are a lot of patients held and subjected to connecting with symbiotes of different colors, they make up Riot, Scream, Phage and Toxin. All with different enhanced abilities.

One of the symbiotes unmentioned in the trailer is Carnage. He is a hugely popular super villain in the Marvel world. Carnage is a symbiote that merges with a serial killer Cletus Kasady. When researching the iMDB page, Woody Harrelson is listed in the movie in one of the tops spots, but his character name is not revealed.

Rumors are hinted at in some places online, but I am making the prediction that the Oscar winner is going to play Cletus Kasady, thus becoming Carnage, a blood-like symbiote that bonds with Kasady, embodying his serial killer spirit.

In as much as the symbiotes infect their hosts, the symbiote becomes part of the person, thus Carnage becomes the deadliest of supervillains. We will see.”
