VENOM Director Says There Are "No Real Heroes" In The Marvel Movie

If you've been fretting about Eddie Brock receiving a heroic makeover in Venom, comments from director Ruben Fleischer may put your mind at ease because he's shed some light on the symbiote's portrayal.

As of right now, we have no idea whether or not Venom will be R-Rated but with it quickly becoming apparent that the movie won't adhere to the source material, many fans are concerned about how Eddie Brock will be portrayed and whether or not the villain will undergo a heroic transformation.

However, during a recent interview at Comic-Con, director Ruben Fleischer explained that the movie actually lacks what could be described as a "real hero" and talked more about its unique tone. 

"I was really excited about just bringing something new to the genre," Fleischer told Entertainment Weekly. "I feel like the tone of our movie is really original and distinctive, which is totally appropriate for the character, as Venom is a darker, more violent, more menacing character. I think our movie feels distinctive from a lot of the other superhero movies, in part because there’s no real hero in it."

"So it’s just a movie that kind of stands on its own, led by incredible performances by fine actors such as [Tom Hardy and Riz Ahmed]," he continued. "But Tom really just is — I think people are going to be blown away by what he brings to the table with both Eddie Brock and Venom. His performance is incredible, and sets the bar for the film." If nothing else, it sounds like Hardy will be a great Venom.
 
How the rest of the movie will fare remains to be seen but with a new trailer incoming, we'll hopefully get a better idea of that soon. What do you guys think? Let us know your thoughts in the usual place.
