To say that Sony’s solo Venom movie has been met with skepticism is like saying that a cat reacts to tuna with interest.
They released the teaser. It does not show Venom. My theories were:
- This was an earnest attempt at “what you don’t see is scarier” that failed because we know full well what Venom looks like.
- The Venom effects are bad and Sony wanted to hide them as long as possible.
- This is just a “dubious” production from top to bottom.
I dunno, this actually interests me. In an age of superhero movies that are meticulously polished, an age of Chevy Impalas and Toyota Camry equivalents, an AMC Gremlin would at least stand out.
