    I'm going to guess this movie is going to imply this is part some kind of multiverse where Peter exists but isn't Spiderman. Yeesh hopefully this doesn't put my idea of how to introduce the X-Men into the MCU out of whack.

    You know you're trailer has problems when of all people Rob Liefeld is calling you out on that.

    https://www.comicbookmovie.com/veno...sappointed-by-the-first-venom-trailer-a157754

    And granted Rob Liefeld isn't really a movie expert or anything but even he knows even if it's a teaser you actually have to TEASE the main product you're talking about and show people you can deliver on what they want to see. Again when Deadpool was doing it's first trailer back at 2015 comic con, it actually had done enough post production to actually SHOW the title character in they're role and the way people want to see them. You NEED to do the same with Venom in some form and they didn't do that so they should be called out for that.

    Well, have they confirmed a rating yet?

    So, that leaves a little wiggle room. If they later on show Venom tearing through some mafioso, or even cops it might save this. I still think this was premature.

    This is a character that works better in the R rating territory, imo, and presumably Sony has convinced themselves they can get Deadpool's success with an R Venom movie.

    Yeah, at this point, if Sony gave Venom a PG-13 rating, it would come across as them chickening out, I think.

    After seeing trailer this is nothing but a cash grabbing movie for Avi Arad since Spider-Man 3 thank god Arad is not running Marvel Studios.

    I'm speaking to the choir at this point, but it's such a lame trailer. This was already a movie that I was seriously on the fence about, and this did nothing to get me even remotely excited. I also love how they think that Venom is so well known that they don't even bother to include the entire name of the title. I'll bet a lot of people who see this in theatres for the first time are going to think the movie is just called "V." Yes, Venom is a very well known character, but he's hardly at the level of someone like Spider-Man. The movie may still be decent, but the marketing thus far has been lacklustre.

    Y'know, I feel like this movie has probably ran out of actual comic characters to use at this point so I'm curious who all is playing who here :p.

    Rumors now swirling we'll only see minutes of Venom at the end of the movie while the majority of the time, it'll manifest as black veins or a small shield...

    ... That better be an untrue rumor because hearing about that alone makes me want to slam Venom as the WORST Comic Book movie of 2018. Granted we haven't seen the full thing yet but... sorry you can't pull this "we only see a minimal amount of the character" crap anymore for a comic book movie. If you want to make a dramatic horror movie focusing on just showing the character being possessed by some sort of tendril creature, fine make your own ORIGINAL movie. But when people pay money for Venom, THEY WANT TO SEE VENOM! You can't pull this crap Sony especially when you got so much hate last time you had only a minimal amount of Venom. But at least that was an additional element of a bigger epic movie. Venom should have a lot about Venom, not just by the symboite slightly manifesting. Maybe Eddie only has control of it at the end but we should still see it especially since that's the big reason people have ANY interest in this movie. Ugh I hope if this is true this bombs terribly. Like Fantastic 4 bombs though at least as bad as that FF movie was the team had they're powers at least by the middle of the movie not fully just showcasing them at the freaking end.

    ...I don't see anyway where, if true, this works out for the film by making them wait an entire movie just to see the character the film is actually named after :sweat:.

    I mean, the lack of Venom was even the biggest criticism for the trailer, but a whole movie without Venom? Just sounds like a recipe for disaster o_O.

    I hope that rumor is false as well. After all, the lack of actual screen time for Venom is one of the big issues when it came to Spider-Man 3 (with me feeling that he should have been saved up for another film).

    It adds a little to the suspicion of it coming out in theaters so relatively quick after filming finished. Granted it's possible they did CG work way before and tech has improved exponentially these days... but you'd think a movie that needs CG like this would come out in 2019 and not 2018. Hmm.

    I think there are also some suspicious things going such as whether the movie might have had enough of an FX budget to cover Venom and why they never showcased Venom at all in the teaser trailer...

    Hmm. I hope this rumor is fake.

    The problem with rumors like this, IMO, is that they're just too easy to spread, especially considering Sony's reputation in recent years.
    Also, after the way the director and actor hyped up how much Venom fans would enjoy this, it'd be a weird move.
