‘Venom’ Reimagined With Eyes Cracks Up Twitter, Outdoes Real Film’s Trailer
By Yoon Sann Wong, 03 Aug 2018
While the original ‘Venom’ from Marvel Comics might seem like one scary beast, it appears that the character isn’t so nasty after being given one minor character design tweak.
In line with the upcoming Venom film starring Tom Hardy that’s slated for release on 5 October, Matthew Gaydos—host of I Love It Podcast and head of co-productions at Complexity—has taken it upon himself to reimagine the Marvel villain in a different light with one simple question: what if ‘Venom’ had eyes?
The hilarious results quickly gained traction on Twitter and has now garnered more ‘likes’ than the trailer of the Venom movie. It has gone on to inspire other rib-tickling, animated “googly” versions.
Feast your eyes on the comical monstrosities below.
