Early Venom Reactions Range from Good to… Well, Venomous

Few films in recent memory have aroused the same kind of curiosity as Ruben Fleischer's Venom. The very premise of the film is audacious -- a Spider-Man villain acting as lethal protector, all while his signature nemesis is nowhere to be found. The supervillain-led film is the first of its kind in the modern age of superheroes, and if it does well at the box office it may be the blueprint for Sony's own flavor of Marvel Cinematic Universe offshoot.

But the question on everyone's lips is a simple one -- does that flavor even taste good? Luckily, we don't have to wait very long to find out.

Early reactions for Venom have started pouring onto social media as the first layer of embargoes are lifted (early social media reactions are separate from reviews, which will start going live tomorrow night). For Sony, it's a momentous occasion that will likely inform how the company proceeds with rumored villain-led films that are set to focus on the likes of Morbius the Living Vampire, Kraven the Hunter and Mysterio.

So, without further delay, let's see what the folks who got to see Venom early have to say and whether they think the film is downright amazing or just another turd in the wind.
