Trivia: When Ann and Eddie are on their date, Ann reminds Eddie of his firing from the Daily Globe. In the Spider-Man comics, Eddie Brock was a reporter for the Daily Globe, a rival newspaper of the Daily Bugle. In the comics, a string of murders were being carried out by a serial killer named the Sin-Eater. Eddie interviewed a man who claimed to be the Sin-Eater but Spider-Man captured the real one and the man that Eddie interviewed was found out to be a compulsive confessor. This incident caused Eddie to get fired from the Daily Globe and sometime after becoming Venom, moves to San Francisco after agreeing with Spider-Man that they will not bother each other on the condition that Eddie no longer commits any more crimes.

Trivia: When Eddie walks into Mrs. Chen's store, Eddie asks Venom what he would like to eat. Venom responds that he wants tater tots and chocolate. In Venom: The Hunger, it's discovered that the symbiotes need a chemical called phenethylamine to survive. This chemical can be found in both brains and in chocolate.

Trivia: The law firm Anne Weying works for is named Michelinie and McFarlane after Venom's creators, David Michelinie and Todd McFarlane.

Trivia: At the start the surviving astronaut is called Jameson. Per the comics and previous Spider-Man films he's Jonah Jameson's son.

Trivia: Tom Hardy took the role of Venom to please his son, saying "I wanted to do something my son could watch. So I did something where I bite people's heads off."

Trivia: Tom Hardy said Venom is the coolest Marvel character as "he has a brazen swagger and a zero foxtrot attitude."

Trivia: The line says by Venom "eyes, lungs, pancreas, so many snacks and so little time" is said by him in the comics while he is fighting Spiderman.


Trivia: During the fight with the SWAT team a Wilhelm scream can be heard.

Trivia: Marvel producers confirmed that Venom is not set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it is in its own universe. It is Sony property and is the first film in the Sony Marvel Universe, which is adjunct to the MCU.

Continuity mistake: When Anne breaks up with Eddie on the sidewalk right after they get fired from their jobs, she approaches him and drops the box she is carrying. A ceramic mug falls out of the box. There is both visual and audible confirmation. After putting her ring in his shirt pocket, she bends to pick up the empty box and proceeds to walk away without also retrieving the missing contents. (00:14:45)

More quotes from Venom

Question: When Eddie goes to see Dan about the test results, Dan says that the symbiote is damaging Eddie's organs but Venom says it's part of the symbiosis. Was Venom really damaging Eddie's body? If not, what was he really doing?

Answer: Venom was using Eddie, much like Riot, to invade Earth. Venom was damaging Eddie's body until he grew to like him, which is why he said he could fix it while Dan was telling Eddie all of this.

Answer: If they are not sustained by other nutrients (like lobster) they will start feeding on the host. Venom was doing that to Eddie, until he is fed.
