When Venom was released – 35% in 2018, some said it was a superhero movie from the early 2000s, and not in a good way, not like X-Men – 81% and Spider-Man – 89%, but as Daredevil: The Man Without Fear – 44% or The Fantastic Four (2005) – 27%. Is it really that bad? The critics agreed that it was not a good film, but the public received it with open arms and made it a box office success, so good was its collection (US $ 856 million) that we are now waiting for the arrival of its sequel, Venom: Let There Be Carnage.

Tom Hardy, who has been recognized as a great actor in the last decade, starred in Venom, and while some said that his performance was not bad, others rated it as the worst of his career. Did it really affect your self-esteem? In a recent interview with Esquire (via Screen Rant) made some statements that seem to show that he did not, because he believes that he managed to establish Eddie Brock and Venom as a new Marvel character for the cinema:
There were other goals with Venom, but they were minor compared to the main goal: Can I get Eddie Brock and Venom as an established Marvel superhero? Venom and Eddie Brock are part of a universal canon among those who know about superheroes, so I don’t want to screw it up. I’d like to be a part of that legacy and not completely ruin it. Do not embarrass him.

No one should deny that Venom It generated many negative reactions from critics, but its success at the box office shows that the word of mouth recommendations from the public were much more positive. The actor went on to say that, similar to the Black Panther movies – 90%, Wonder Woman – 92%, there are people who like them and people who don’t like them, but nobody says they are terrible, the same case with Venom:
You have Black Panther, Thor, Wonder Woman, Venom; There’s not one where you say, ‘Oh God, did you see that? It’s fucking terrible! Avoid that [película] fucking terrible! ‘ Maybe people don’t like it, maybe people really like it, but it’s not ruled out.
Maybe we should question whether Venom it’s so bad, or yeah Black Panther and Wonder Woman they are as good as they say. The truth is that the film starring Tom Hardy It left much to be desired in many respects, but it also has the potential to improve in its next installments, and perhaps at some point we can see the character facing Spider-Man.
The Venom sequel is expected to hit theaters before the end of the year, although we cannot rule out a further delay due to the Delta variant of Covid-19. In the meantime, let’s wait for the film to arrive in September / October. Venom: Let there be Carnage is directed by Andy Serkis, the first installment was in charge of Ruben Fleischer, who in a 2019 interview with Fandom defended Venom of the negative reviews with these words:
… it’s a movie to please the masses and I’m not sure if it was a backlash against Sony or if people just adore Marvel [Studios]. But I was really surprised that the critics [la estuvieran atacando] because the audience really enjoyed the movie. And many people who saw it appreciated that it was a fun superhero movie. So I was a bit surprised. I don’t know what they expected.
In this time of competition between companies, the winners are the fans, who have a wide variety of movies and superhero series to enjoy, whether from Marvel or DC Comics, the future looks bright for the subgenre.
