Venom was released in the United States on October 5, 2018, to generally negative reviews from critics for its script and inconsistent tone. However, some praised Hardy’s performance and the chemistry between Brock and Venom, and the film went on to be an unexpected box office success, becoming the 5th highest-grossing film of 2018 with over $852 million worldwide and setting several box office records for the month of October.
My Spidey senses are tingling and there’s going to be a Venom sequel. Marvel fans will just have to wait and see if there will be an epic battle between Venom and Spider-Man.
The film writers aren’t giving any hints to the damage that Venom may bring, but will their paths cross? Will Brock get his revenge on Parker for disgracing him and the loss of his job? Will Parker convince Brock to terminate the bond between him and the black suit? Not sure if the movie will follow the comic series or take on a direction and life of its own. But all we know is this dark villain will have a bright future on Marvel’s big screen.
