The early reviews of Tom Hardy’s Venom are finally here and they might kill our dreams of having Sony’s anti superhero franchise. Going by the reviews, people are calling it one of the worst superhero films in recent time. They are saying it’s unambitious and messy train wreck of a movie.

“Venom’s first stand-alone movie turns out to be like the comics character in all the wrong ways – chaotic, noisy, and in desperate need of a stronger attachment to Spider-Man,” says critics’ consensus on Rotten Tomatoes. It also has a terrible rating of mere 28%. Sigh.

To be honest, the movie didn’t have as much hype to begin with. Trailers failed to create the hype Sony was expecting. But still a lot of superhero film enthusiasts were expecting a fun superhero film starring Tom friggin’ Hardy that could crossover with Marvel’s Spiderman in the future. And possibly, a franchise to anti superheroes. But sadly, if it doesn’t do good at the box office we might never see Venom v Spiderman on the big screen again.

Here are some of the early Venom reactions and reviews that are going viral on social media.








However, there are also some relatively positive reviews.



The movie is scheduled to release on 5th October in India. I really hope it’s not as bad as everyone is saying it is.
