First Venom Trailer Doesn’t Convince Me That Movie is Really Happening
So the first trailer for the Venom movie arrived this morning. I have long disputed the idea that this movie was really happening. Any sort of Venom film has been in supposed pre-production for at least a decade. And the idea that Sony would push ahead with a solo Venom movie after the failure of their Amazing Spider-Man-verse seems ludicrous.
But here we are. A real trailer. I told myself that I wouldn’t believe this movie was happening until I at least saw a trailer.
And I’m still not sure a Venom movie is happening.
Can Sony not read a room? Do they not understand people’s doubts about their ability to make a standalone superhero movie? Do they not understand what we actually want to see in a Venom movie?
I understand the post-production CGI is going to take a lot of work. But why even release a teaser trailer if you don’t have a single frame of CGI Venom completed?
It is what it is, I suppose.
