We’ve just been given a new shot of Eddie Brock fully suited up as ‘Venom‘ and even while the trailers have had highly mixed responses it is hard to say that this suit doesn’t look fantastic. The studio has been releasing quite a few new stills from the movie showing off the symbiote ready for action.
On how Eddie Brock merges with this alien symbiote, director Ruben Fleischer has shared:
“In the classic Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde thing, he’s the real Hyde. He’ll rip somebody’s head off and eat their brains. There’s this forbidden-fruit quality of this guy who will just do whatever he wants.” But there’s also a funny side to this menacing figure, including a “silly tongue always dangling out of his mouth that kind of undercuts the ferociousness of the jaws.”
As to the new image of ‘Venom,’ you can check that out right here:
While in the comics the two have merged to mostly become one entity, we’ll be seeing a strong duality of personalities here:
“As you know, as a fan of the character, Eddie Brock and Venom is a unique character within the universe because it’s not just a singular experience. It’s not like there’s a guy who gets imbued with powers or makes his own suit and the becomes a vigilante, or he’s not an alien that comes to earth and has superpowers. In our movie, or in the comics, it’s about the union of these two different parts to create a whole.
There’s a symbiote, and then there’s Eddie Brock. There’s a relationship. That’s what Tom did so amazingly well, was to play these two characters simultaneously. That was, as a director, just exhilarating to watch someone with the capability that he has managed the two characters that he has in his head.”
I’m wondering exactly how well we’ll be able to see these two personalities become one on the big screen and hope that they’re able to do the character justice.
