Speaking to ComicsExplained, the film’s star, Tom Hardy, said his favorite scenes in Venom didn’t actually end up in the final cut. “There are, like, 30 to 40 minutes’ worth of scenes that aren’t in this movie,” Hardy said when asked what his favorite scenes to film were. “Mad puppeteering scenes, dark comedy scenes. You know what I mean? They just never made it in.”
The early reviews for Venom are trickling in this week and it appears as though my suspicions were correct, this movie is bad bad not good. So shout out to Tom Hardy getting ahead of the negativity by claiming that all of his good scenes were cut out so it’s not his fault.
Remember when everyone hated Suicide Squad so Jared Leto wanted everyone to know that his ‘good’ Joker scenes didn’t make the final count?
It’s a tale as old as time.
A studio (not Marvel) backs up a Brinks truck full of cash to your front door to star in a comic book movie. You film a bunch of garbage. The movie comes out and the world sees all that garbage. Then you say that the reeaaaallll good shit is on the cutting room floor. Never fails.
Sony couldn’t succeed making a Spider-Man movie so they had to let Marvel do it correctly. Reminder that Spider-Man might possibly be the most popular superhero ever. Sony could not crack that code. Interesting move for them to move on to a Spider-Man secondary character instead. Shocking it didn’t go well.
I am extremely excited to go hate watch Venom. Let’s pretend to take Tom Hardy’s word on this. You mean all of the good scenes were cut? So what made the final 2-hour version? Can’t wait to find out.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you’re hyped to go see Venom and hate every minute of it. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
