Truly, it’s kind of sweet in a way that Sony has just embraced that there’s more to Eddie and the symbiote than their physical connection, even if it’s still played a little more for laughs and less in the way of the way a certain subsection of the Venom fandom might prefer. We might just get the gags and the occasional wistful comparison to romantic couples, but hey: maybe by Venom 3 we’ll be ready to just fully make this franchise into a rom-com action adventure in the way superhero movies could be, if they weren’t so goddamn cowardly.
At the least, it’s just good to know there’s someone out there at Sony Pictures listening to the fans. Venom: Let There Be Carnage hits theaters on September 30—stay tuned to io9 for more from the crew behind the film this week.
