VENOM Director Explains Why Eddie Brock's Symbiote Doesn't Have The Iconic White Spider Logo On Its Chest

On Friday, it was confirmed that Tom Hardy's Venom won't have the iconic white spider logo on his chest in the upcoming movie and now director Ruben Fleischer has explained this change to his appearance.

While there's no denying that the big screen version of Venom looks like he's been torn straight from the pages of the comic books, there's one very important component missing. We are, of course, referring to the white spider symbol that adorns his chest, something which was absent in the trailer shown in Hall H on Friday. So, what's the deal with that being left out of the upcoming movie?

"If you look at the comics, in Venom, there is just elements of white within his suit," says Ruben Fleischer. "Because our character does not originate from Spider-Man, it makes no sense to put a spider on his chest. We tried to be as accurate as we possibly could, even though some people feel it's inaccurate, but there is a lot of white and we wanted to give him a distinctive pattern."
 
What that pattern will be remains to be seen and we probably won't be able to take a proper look at that until the new trailer is released online. It turns out that there is actually a good reason for giving him some sort of logo in the movie, though, and it's actually quite practical according to the filmmaker. 

"If you have an all-black character, especially in night scenes, he just kind of disappears. Since we couldn't use the Spider-Man symbol, we wanted to give him another graphic element, and those veins that kind of form a shape on his chest was an original idea that we just thought looked really cool."
