While our readers are already talking about Venom in the comments section of our Venom movie review, this is the place where you can discuss spoilers, post-credits scenes, and plot twists/reveals without worrying about ruining Sony's Spider-Man spinoff adventure for those who haven’t see it yet.
If you’re posting comments here, assume that anyone in the conversation has seen Venom already. If you haven’t seen the launchpad of Sony's new comic book movie universe yet, then we would recommend that you don’t read the comments here until you have. Other than that, feel free to discuss Venom and all its many surprises (including, how it introduces Tom Hardy's iteration of the titular symbiote or how it may set up sequels and other movies in this new universe).
In order to respect review and spoiler embargoes, we will not be posting the biggest Venom spoilers here; however, you're free to break down your own impressions and review, as well as everything that wowed or disappointed you in the comments.

One of Marvel’s greatest and most complex characters takes center stage as Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) becomes the host for the alien symbiote Venom. As a journalist, Eddie has been trying to take down the notorious founder of the Life Foundation, genius Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed) – and that obsession ruined his career and his relationship with his girlfriend, Anne Weying (Michelle Williams). Upon investigating one of Drake’s experiments, the alien Venom merges with Eddie’s body, and he suddenly has incredible new superpowers, as well as the chance to do just about whatever he wants. Twisted, dark, unpredictable, and fueled by rage, Venom leaves Eddie wrestling to control dangerous abilities that he also finds empowering and intoxicating. As Eddie and Venom need each other to get what they’re looking for, they become more and more intertwined – where does Eddie end and Venom begin?
Venom starts playing in U.S. theaters Thursday evening October 4th. It runs 112 minutes and is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action, and for language.
