Unless you've been living under a symbiote-laced meteorite, you've heard by now that #TomHardy will be taking on his second supervillain role in the solo Venom movie. Unless he's going to be a hero, but that's a different topic for a different day.
Since the only facts we know for sure is that #Venom is going to be made, and Tom Hardy will be Eddie Brock, that leaves a lot up in the air. Who will be in the movie with him? Will he be good or bad? To answer those questions, there are mountains of comic books out there to comb through. And while you're searching through them, you may stumble upon some extremely messed up things Venom has done.
Seeing how Spider-Man has had his share of WTF craziness in the comics, here are 5 of those comic book moments we most definitely — probably, maybe — won't see in the upcoming Venom movie!
1. Venom T-Rex
There are many, many reasons this craziness won't happen in the Venom movie, including lawsuits. The T-Rex symbiote moment happened during the Old Man Logan storyline, with Logan and Hawkeye getting chased by the Venomosaurus. However, as awesome as a seeing that creation would be, this isn't Transformers or Iron Sky.
2. Venom Breaks Up With Eddie Brock...In Mid-Air
Venom has paired up with many a person, including the weaselly loser Angelo Fortunato. Angelo, mobster's son, gets the symbiote after dear old dad wins it at an auction. #EddieBrock organized that auction to sell the suit and raise money for charity, after he suffered a crisis of conscience. As if that entire story isn't WTF enough for you, check out the brutal way Venom kills the guy. The Venom suit gets sick of Angelo getting his butt kicked by Spidey...
... And dumps him mid-air:
That might actually be a pretty cool scene to see in an R-rated Venom, but there's no way Tom Hardy's Eddie Brock would have the same problem as Angelo.
3. This Guy
During a fight with the Juggernaut, Venom gets knocked into a pool of what looks like water, but turns out to be Venom-like mercury based virus-thing, and it really takes a liking to the Venom symbiote. They do their alien mating malarky, and become this guy:
The arms are cool, but all the tiny heads? Weird.
4. Venom Becomes A Car
Apparently, at one point, Venom gets upset that some criminals have eluded him. By escaping in there car. I wish I was kidding about that one. Let's just say no VenomMobile in the Venom movie. No, no, no.
5. He Gets Shot In The Eye...With A Dog
You heard that right. He doesn't shoot a dog in the eye. A dog doesn't shoot him in the eye. He gets shot in the eye with a dog:
Bullseye, who can turn anything into a deadly projectile, shoots Venom in the eye with a yippy little dog.
The dog survived the eye-gouging, but Venom chucks the little guy awful far after the battle is over. The dog may not have survived the ordeal.
I dunno. Seeing Daken, son of Wolverine, fight Venom might make it worth witnessing Bullseye using corndogs (yes, the actual food) as weapons, and seeing Fido get...no. No, it won't.
As wild of a ride as that was, this could go on for hours, and we still couldn't cover half of the insane moments from the Venom comics.
