Things We Saw Today: We’re Confused and Fascinated by Reports of an Eddie Brock/Venom Makeout Session

We Are Venom

Yesterday, the first impressions and reviews of Sony’s Venom movie hit the internet, and there was a lot to take in—mainly, that the movie is more bad-good than good-good, if it’s any good at all—but at the end of the day, we were mostly left with on big, strange, lingering question: Do Eddie Brock (and, by extension, Tom Hardy), and Venom make out?

Wait, what? Well, our impression of the movie as totally bizarre left our humor detectors a little out of whack, and we were unable to tell whether offhand comments about that very thing were jokes or not. Since then, we’ve gotten our answer, and we won’t spoil anything for you here, but suffice it to say that we are about as confused now as we were at the start—a little disappointed, in some ways, but in others … very much not.

If you don’t mind having this detail spoiled, this tweet, and the ensuing thread, will fill you in on everything you need to know about what is currently our major point of interest in this movie. If you’re at all interested, I highly recommend that you continue scrolling to see the photographic evidence of the event in question for yourself, which can really only serve to fuel the internet’s Venom-inspired arousal.

Truly, if nothing else, we are fascinated by this very, very weird movie.

In other Spider-Man-adjacent news, with Spider-Man: Homecoming mainly filming in Atlanta, there was little hope that Spider-Man: Far From Home would be filmed in New York—mainly because, as the title suggests, Peter Parker and his friends are, seemingly, nowhere near the city. In fact, most everything that came out about the movie has shown us that Peter isn’t going to be spending too much time with his Aunt May in their Queens home.

From Venice to Prague to London, Peter Parker is going to be a world traveler in this next film, and seeing him coming back to New York to film is going to be fun. The question is “Will it be Atlanta’s New York, as well, or the real Queens?”

Peter and his friends will be taking over the world, and while we still don’t know how Spider-Man: Far From Home fits in with the aftermath of Avengers: Infinity War, clearly Peter, MJ, and Ned are back in action.
