Venom Appears Wolverine-esque In New Trailer


The second trailer for Venom appears very Wolverine-esque and seems somewhat trite as well. Key takeaways from the trailer include a body horror take on Eddie Brock/Venom (Tom Hardy) as well as a prominent vocal inflection or speech impediment that I can’t put my finger on. Carlton Drake is the villain and for those unfamiliar, he was able to extract 5 various symbiotes from the original Venom alien which leads to an almost Weapon X program. Venom’s voice overs feel too cartoony and the special effects look less so. The scene with the motorcycle and subsequent reattachment failed to awe or remotely amaze me. Lastly, Venom’s reveal looked plasticine and almost Cookie Monster-ish. I don’t have very high hopes for this film but maybe my opinion can be changed or I’m overlooking something…like Spider-Man?
