Produced by Columbia Pictures and distributed by Sony Pictures. The film is directed by Ruben Fleischer and written by Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner. A story by Kelly Marcel, Rosenberg, and Pinkner. As an adaptation of an antihero rather than a traditional superhero. Venom seeks to set itself apart from other films in the genre. In this article, we will explore what made Venom so different from other films in the genre.
The story of Venom
The story of Venom: Let There Be Carnage concerns Eddie Brock, a freelance journalist who becomes the host for an alien symbiote that inhabits his body. The film begins with Eddie Brock and Peter Parker conversing over the phone. To impress Parker, Brock jumps into the Los Angeles River, where he finds the corpse of a man. Eddie Brock is now the host of the alien symbiote “Venom,” and he aims to take over the body of scientist Anne Weying, who has witnessed the body’s capture. Brock breaks into Weying’s lab and finds her lying on a table with a drill going into her head, sucking out her brain.
The tone of the movie
In Marvel’s solo movies, the movies are, to a large extent, what makes them what they are. There are two main types of Marvel films, those with a standard formula – an action film, with villains and heroes with a clear conflict between them – and those with added human elements, where there is conflict amongst the characters themselves. Both can be action-packed and similar, but they are very different on the face of it. For instance, one thing that doesn’t work in MCU’s films is the over-use of cynicism.
The visuals and effects
Venom is the first film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) to be released without a live-action adaptation of a prior MCU film. To put it simply, Venom is not part of the cinematic universe that we’ve become so accustomed to. The nearest thing we have in terms of a rebooted universe is Avengers: Infinity War (2018), a prequel to the preceding Marvel films, a reality in which the key MCU players are effectively dead. Venom was the first MCU film without a prior live-action adaptation. At its most basic level, Venom is a superhero film with a few villainy undertones.
The music, humor, and violence
Marvel did not recover with the next movie, Amazing Spider-Man 2, and a second sequel failed to be greenlit. Sony became the only company to make movies related to Spider-Man without fear of a potential failure. With Venom, Sony took control of the character by not giving him the usual three films. When the studio first announced Venom, everyone thought it was just a bit of fun to help save the floundering franchise. Thankfully, with the stellar performance of Venom and the progress of Spider-Man: Homecoming, Sony’s gamble paid off. The movie feels like it would have been a TV show at one point, not a film.
How Venom is different from other superhero movies
A departure from the formulaic superhero movies, Venom is a “grimdark” superhero movie set in an R-rated world. Giving the lead characters more depth and complexity than any other superhero flick. Playing as a self-aware antihero, Venom is most definitely the hero we want to root for, despite his horrifying appearance. If this isn’t enough, I love most all superheroes, but some of them are a little too one-dimensional or unrealistic to make a lasting impression.
Despite the negative feedback from some critics and the box office failure of Venom. It successfully integrates elements of the superhero genre while avoiding common traps and pitfalls. Unlike many recent superhero films in the same genre. Venom tells an original and original story with no ties to previous incarnations. Additionally, the scriptwriter managed to craft an exciting and captivating story that satisfies both fans and non-fans. The critical response was generally negative. The movie was nominated for one Razzie but won no awards.
