 For all those who are anticipating the upcoming Venom film starring Tom Hardy (Mad Max: Fury Road, The Dark Knight Rises, The Revenant), many fans are on the fence about how this film will turn out. It has the opportunity to be phenomenal, though it also could burn to the ground in a blinding blaze of shear disappointment.  

Unfortunately, Sony may be missing something paramount with making this movie. Though Venom has become extremely popular in comics and has really become his own unique character, there is still something missing. There is one dire person you cannot ignore if you are going to make a proper homage to Venom. You need to address his predecessor; the wondrous web-slinger himself, Spider-Man. 


Now according to previous news, Venom will be in the same REALITY as Spider-Man Homecoming, whatever that means. An educated guess presumes that most likely this film may take place farther down the time-line in the future; where Spider-Man has grown up, experienced the Symbiote and rejected it and thus Venom being created. This could mean that this film may not be the birth of Venom, but that Venom has already been around for a while and we are seeing what he has been doing as the violent anti-hero. This would make sense according to the comics, due to Carnage being the primary antagonist for the film. Carnage was born long after Venom was created and wreaking havoc for Spider-Man; therefore the continuity would work well. If this is indeed the case, we would most likely  see fragments of Venom's past throughout the film explaining how he got to where he is now. Perhaps it will even show the Symbiote's past, including it's home world, when it was connected to Spider-Man and lastly Venom's eventual creation.

To give a tidbit of info on the beginnings of Venom; before he was created, the Symbiote had bonded with Peter Parker and became known as the black suited Spider-Man or 'Symbiote' Spider-Man. When the two bonded, the Symbiote replicated many of Peter's powers which it bestowed later onto Eddie Brock once becoming Venom.

These powers included super strength, enhanced reflexes and sticking to walls. It even created it's own version of "mock webbing" which was just stretched out pieces of Symbiote to imitate web-swinging. The Symbiote was also able to hide from Parker's Spider-Sense, making Venom one of the more dangerous adversaries for the Web-Head to take on.


This is all general knowledge that many people who barely know anything about Venom or the Symbiote probably already know. What many do not know, is that no matter how long Venom was around, the Symbiote never truly wanted Eddie. True, he was a great host by providing an overdrive of adrenaline (which the Symbiote feeds on) through his rage. But this was never enough; deep down it craved it's perfect match; that match was Spider-Man.

The original premise of Venom's hatred for Spider-Man was on the basis that the Symbiote was fueled by Eddie's rage. What if that was not really the case? What if the contempt that Venom has for Spider-Man comes more from the Symbiote than Eddie Brock?Yes, Eddie thought Spider-Man ruined his life and was disgraced as a reporter, but for the Symbiote had so much more taken away. Spider-Man rejected it! The perfect host rejected it and that drove the Symbiote crazy. And deep down it would always want to leave Eddie and re-bond with Spider-Man if it could. Combine that with Brock's despising of Spider-Man for his failures, and you have a psychotic Symbiote hell bent on revenge called Venom.

As much as Venom has become his own character, he will always be a Spider-Man based character. You can't have Venom without Spider-Man, because without Spider-Man there would be no Venom! There is just too much backstory between the two for leaving Peter Parker out of the Venom film. If anything there should be be a small cameo or a few tiny cameos in the movie referencing him, which will make more sense as to explain who Venom really is. Though, hopefully in the future we will see the two once again come together on the big screen. Until then, let's keep our hopes up that Venom can hold his own without the web-Head.

Heavily agreed with all of this, Sony needs to get there heads out of the gutter and realize that Venom needs to be apart of the MCU.
