Rumor Has It That We Shouldn't Expect To See A Lot Of Venom In The Upcoming VENOM Movie

Remember all those Tom Hardy: The Movie jokes when the Venom trailer was released? Well, rumour has it that we're not actually going to see an awful lot Venom in his own movie. Hit the jump for details...

The first trailer for Venom was released earlier this year and to say the response was mostly negative would probably be an understatement. As well as seemingly making it clear that the movie won't be sticking even remotely close to the comic books, there wasn't even a hint of the titular symbiote; instead, we just got to see Tom Hardy doing a lot of stuff and talking with a questionable accent.

Now, a new rumour is doing the rounds that we won't actually see more than a couple of minutes of Venom in, well, Venom. Instead, the symbiote will mostly manifest itself via black veins on Eddie Brock's arms and as tendrils and even a shield during a car chase. It won't be until the very end of the movie that the alien forms a suit around its host but even that will only be for a battle lasting a couple of minutes against the lead villain described as a scientist also infected with
an alien symbiote. 

Nothing is confirmed right now but based on what producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach did with The Amazing Spider-Man movies, it's all easy to believe and points to an underwhelming solo outing for the
fan-favourite Marvel Comics character. Throw in the fact that it has only a modest budget and the lack of Venom definitely makes sense. What do you guys think? Feel free to weigh in in the usual place.
