The very first teaser trailer of Venom recently arrived, and it received a mixed reception from its fans. The social media platforms are split on this promo, and while a few enjoying these hints, others are disappointed and are complaining about the lack of Venom himself. Some of these reactions are pretty extreme, and now people are planning to boycott this movie.
DeviantArt user, KurvosVicky had shared a post which proclaims that they want to give the Spider-Man spinoff movie a miss and this is being supported by many people who have similar thoughts. And to explain themselves they have even attached a bullet-point list on why they feel that Venom will let them down.
They seem to hold Sony responsible for all previous misfires like Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. You can read the original post below:
**DISCLAIMER: I have nothing against you if you choose to watch this movie. This isn’t an attack towards you; this is a statement aimed towards Sony.***
Reasons why I will boycott this movie:
1. It’s Sony. They are trying to take away anything from Marvel they can with Spider-Man now. If the Venom movie becomes a success, that means they will get one step closer to taking away Spider-Man from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or any Spider-Man related character they haven’t used yet. In fact, this could even mean we are risking them to take away J. Jonah Jameson from us, as well as Gwen Stacy and Mary Jane.
2. Avi Arad and Amy Pascal are the ones who got this movie to get into production. Avi Arad is infamous for ruining Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 with a lot of production intervention, and he is irrationally obsessed with Venom. Amy Pascal is the crazy idiot responsible for the 2016 Ghostbusters movie, and the upcoming Barbie movie with a strong SJW agenda.
3. Tom Rothman is in charge of the movie division of Sony and has been ever since 2015. Before that up until 2012, he was the one in charge of the movie division of Fox. Yes, he is the guy responsible for all the bad decisions with the X-Men movies from X-Men 3 and forward. He’s responsible for sowing Deadpool’s mouth shut (literally, it was his demand for that to happen), and he was the one NOT allowing a Deadpool movie to happen (and couldn’t happen until that asshole left). He also never allowed Sentinels to be in the X-Men movies because he doesn’t think people like to see giant robots. Wherever Tom Rothman goes, movies are being ruined.
4. Again, it’s SONY. They thought it was a good idea to make an Aunt May spin-off movie at one point. And they are going to have Venom be the start of their Spider-Man universe WITHOUT Spider-Man, separated from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And once again, it’s part of their evil plan to slowly try to take back Spider-Man. And by paying ANY money for this movie, you WILL support them doing that.
Since a trailer will very soon come out of this new Venom movie, I do urge people to think twice about giving this movie a chance. It might be good in and of itself; I don’t know. But is it worth it to ruin Spider-Man from being allowed to be included in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?”
We do understand that a few fans are angry due to the exclusion of Venom in this the trailer but it is is a shame that some of them want to skip this movie.
We are sure that Tom Hardy will deliver a great performance as Brock and the rumors suggest that it may include roles for a few characters like Carnage and even Tom Holland’s Peter Parker.
Venom will release on October 5th, 2018.
