Venom: A Line From Trailer 2 Causing Social Media Uproar Was Taken From Comics

The latest and most probably the final Venom trailer was released at San Diego Comic-Con 2018 held last month. The trailer has already amassed over 27.6 million views on YouTube. It shows the best and the closest look at the symbiote alien as it takes over Eddie Brock’s (Tom Hardy) body.

Everything about the Venom trailer was great except for a few lines that have created a bit of an uproar on social media. For instance, in the middle of the trailer, Venom holds up an enemy and threatens him by saying, “Eyes, lungs, pancreas… so many snacks, so little time,” before licking his face with his protruding tongue.

Well, it is surprising to know that the line was not the creation of Venom’s writing team. In fact, it was taken straight from original Marvel comics. The line in question was directly pulled from The Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 1) #374, scripted by David Michelinie and penciled by Mark Bagley, reported

Another line from the trailer that isn’t going well with the audiences is apparently not inspired by the comics. The scene comes at the end of the trailer when the titular anti-hero Venom stares down a man in a convenience store and tells him that “We will eat both your arms, and then both of your legs, and then we will eat your face right off your head. You will be this armless, legless, faceless thing, won’t you? Rolling down the street, like a turd in the wind.”

In a recent interview with Esquire, actor Tom Hardy revealed that his portrayal of Eddie Brock and Venom was based on an interesting trio of real-life people.

Woody Allen’s tortured neurosis and all the humor that can come from that,” Hardy said. “Conor McGregor – the überviolence but not all the talking. And Redman out of control, living rent-free in his head.”

We will finally get to see Venom in action when the film debuts in theatres on Friday, October 5, 2018.
