#icymi Tom Hardy is Eddie Brock in #Venom, the upcoming film from @sonypictures Marvel Universe, directed by Ruben Fleischer, releasing 5 October 5 2018 – production starts this fall.

“Venom is to usher in a host of movies from Sony’s Marvel and Spider-Man-based universe of characters. Sony is rebooting its MCU slate with this summer’s Spiderman: Homecoming ~

Venom has been one of Marvel’s top villains and a Spider-Man fixture since he was introduced in 1988. The character is an alien symbiote that needs a human host to survive. In return, the alien vests its victim with incredible powers.

Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner wrote the script. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producing, along with Amy Pascal.” ~ via www.hollywoodreporter.com

“...hallucination check, Ted.”

Ted the Animator: “No, no… I’m seein’ this, too.”

Carl the Animator: “Ok, good, ‘cause the storyboards seem very clear that KISS starts glowing neon colors.”

Ted the Animator: “…and then start flying, apparently.”

Carl the Animator: “This… this was not a turn I was expecting the movie to take, but one I’m totally on board for.”

Ted the Animator: “I like how they couldn’t think of a visual flying-power-effect-thingy for the green cat guy, so they just didn’t give him one.”

Carl the Animator: “He’s a magical cat person. He prolly just, like, jumps long distances.”

Ted the Animator: “The animation doesn’t show that. Come on, Carl, visual storytelling.’

Carl the Animator: “Well, ok, how would you show that a rock ‘n’ roll band member cat person with green cosmic superpowers had used them to jump incredibly far towards a spinning teacups carnival ride for the purpose of saving a talking dog?”

Ted the Animator: “I’d ha–… ok, that may be the greatest sentence I’ve ever heard.”

Carl the Animator: “You know it.”

Ted the Animator: “…let’s just move on before our brains start melting.”

Carl the Animator: “Speaking of which, this guy turns into a fire-breathing dinosaur person.”

Ted the Animator: “And the other guy becomes some kind of cat thing, as we previously established.”

Carl the Animator: “And don’t forget the coupla frames of closeup on his face when he jumps towards the camera.”

Ted the Animator: “…wow.”

Carl the Animator: “According to fans, this sequence is *identical* to some of the transformation scenes in Sailor Moon.” 

Ted the Animator: “Ah, cool, I didn’t kn–… wait, how exactly have fans seen this? We’re looking at production storyboards!”

Carl the Animator: "…”

Ted the Animator: “Carl….”

Carl the Animator: “Ok, fine, I might have tweeted a few things out.”

Ted the Animator: “You’re lucky no one cares enough to make us sign NDAs, y’know.”

Carl the Animator: “…so, moving along from shaky legal territory, KISS has a big fight with the bad guy, and Shaggy & Scooby almost puke after getting off the spinning teacups ride.”

Ted the Animator:All the best action scenes end with our heroes nearly barfing on top of their friend.”

Carl the Animator: “Then, there’s a fade transition to… uh….”

Carl the Animator: “…um…”

Ted the Animator: “…is that a hospital? Wait, are they DEAD?

Carl the Animator: “I doubt it, but if so, man that got dark in a hurry.”

Ted the Animator: “I guess the spinning teacups were too much for them.”

Carl the Animator: “This is what happens if you eat too many sweets before going on the rides, kids.”

I’ll never forget the way my nieces’ eyes lit up and how excited they became when they asked if there’s any “girl superheroes” and I told them yes 😭💙
