Every year needs that one comic book film that underperforms, gets a critical lambasting, and/or outright bombs...

I'm putting my bet on VENOM for 2018!

Ahhh, yes. Aquaman. Otherwise known as "Underwater Lobo."

Venom was introduced at the tail-end of my adolescence, and I never really glommed onto the character. Though I imagine there are a legion of guys slightly younger than I who are absolutely in love with the trailer's comic-accurate depiction of the "symbiote".

I couldn't believe a nifty costume re-do would turn into a character in itself.  Marvel sure milked it for all it was worth.

Looks absolute garbage. Not a fan of superhero films anyway the only ones I've really enjoyed are Superman (1978?) and Black Panther.

I lost interest in Venom pretty quickly, basically when he became a 'lethal protector' instead of a twisted new villain. I will say, though, this certainly physically looks like Venom, which is pretty cool!

I watched the trailer. I know not why. Saw a lot of sturm und drang. And when there came the final full transformation, the Venom face looked... silly! Like a bad Halloween mask version of the character.

Which, now that I think of it, is also how Spawn looked in the movies.

Coincidence.

I'm not much of a fan of the Venom character, who began appearing in comics I went out of my way to avoid during my waning teen days of collecting superheros. I'm also not into movies featuring slight leading men who aren't Tom Cruise riding motorcycles silhouetted by exploding cars. This will likely join the 25% of superhero films I don't bother with.

I thought the trailer looked pretty good.
It's hard for those of who were still reading comics when Venom cam out not
to have some negative feelings as it seemed like that was around the time a lot
of us felt the stories weren't all-ages or well written anymore.

That being said the concept of venom could be interesting and the trailer looks
good so I'll give it a chance.

"Venom is the first of Sonyís new films based on characters from the Spider-Man comics, although itís a separate world from last yearís Spider-Man: Homecoming. (Itís also not part of the deal between Sony and Disney that allows Tom Hollandís Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe)."

Sure to disappoint some fans... but doesn't surprise me. (I'm actually thankful!)

-C!
