    ★½

    As far as I can remember, there have been words about a possible "Venom" film. Whether it was a spinoff of "Spider-Man 3" or something that would have connected to Marc Webb's proposed trilogy before it was cancelled, there have always been a desire from Sony to give this character a standalone film.

It stays true to the story of the original, while changing a few plot details that actually helps the story move in a better direction than the animated film…
