** Avi Arad, Amy Pascal, and Tom Rothman were all controversial on their own for being responsible for incredibly unpopular creative decisions[[note]]Arad is most infamous for [[ExecutiveMeddling forcing Sam Raimi to use]] [[SpotlightStealingSquad Venom]] in ''Film/SpiderMan3'' and was behind the questionable management of ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderManSeries'' (most infamously ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2'', which became a FranchiseKiller due to trying to turn the series into a SharedUniverse in the space of one movie), Pascal cancelled Creator/DanAykroyd's pitch for a true ''Franchise/{{Ghostbusters}} 3'' and greenlit not only the [[OvershadowedByControversy incredibly controversial]] ''Film/Ghostbusters2016'' but also the [[SnarkBait memetically-vilified]] ''WesternAnimation/TheEmojiMovie'', and Rothman has [[ExecutiveMeddling a history of violence]] that includes sabotaging and cancelling ''Series/{{Firefly}}'', rushing ''Film/XMenTheLastStand'' into production, [[Film/FantasticFourRiseOfTheSilverSurfer turning Galactus into a cloud]], absolutely butchering ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'' (most infamously, he mandated the InNameOnly version of SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} in that film), trying to get ''Film/Deadpool2016'' cancelled, and greenlighting the [[Film/FantasticFour2015 Fantastic Four reboot]] that infamously did even ''[[BoxOfficeBomb worse]]'' than the earlier films.[[/note]]. Putting them all together for the production of this film naturally led to a '''lot''' of unsavory things being said about the project.
** Additionally, the movie's announcement synergizes very poorly with Spider-Man's role in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse, especially because ''Venom'' was announced so soon after the latter began.[[note]]Spidey had only appeared in ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' and ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'' was to be released a year afterwards.[[/note]] To many fans, ''Venom'' serves as a sign that Sony doesn't appreciate the MCU Spidey deal because they can't have complete control over the Spider-Man franchise they own the rights to [[note]]despite the fact that they still distribute and keep all profits from all solo MCU Spider-Man movies[[/note]], and/or that they're already planning to end the deal at some point and only see it as a temporary fix to the studio's and franchise's troubles.

** While Eddie confronting the BigBad about the allegations against him in ''public'' is indeed an incredibly stupid move for a seasoned journalist, it meshes well with the fact that comic book Eddie despite what he believed wasn’t really as good at his job as he claimed. (Him losing his job in the comics was a result of him taking the confession of someone just claiming he was a famed serial killer withouting really collaborating it with Spider-Man catching the real killer soon after.) It also kinda endears us to Hardy’s version by showing he does indeed care about the lives of people and is willing to put himself at risk for the sake of finding the truth.

* SnarkBait: This film, along with ''Film/SilverAndBlack'', has gotten a lot of hatred for its [[AudienceAlienatingPremise unappealing premise]] of being centered around a Spider-Man villain with practically all ties to Spider-Man [[AdaptedOut removed]], especially due to Sony's [[ExecutiveMeddling bungling]] of ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderManSeries''. The fact that Sony has developed a reputation for producing some of the Internet's [[Film/{{Pixels}} favorite]] [[Film/Ghostbusters2016 punching]] [[WesternAnimation/TheEmojiMovie bags]] (as well as this film being produced by Amy Pascal, who greenlit some of said punching bags) isn't helping, either, as is the fact that ''Film/{{Catwoman}}'', a film with a similar concept, turned out to be one of the biggest critical and [[BoxOfficeBomb financial]] failures in comic book movie history. This film's detractors are hoping that it will, like ''Film/FantasticFour2015'' was for Fox, be yet another critical and financial failure for Sony, so that Creator/MarvelStudios can fully regain the film rights of the Spider-Man franchise and that Sony will not be able to start a viable cinematic universe centered around Spider-Man and his RoguesGallery that is not part of the MCU, and so that Amy Pascal can be further humiliated.

* JustHereForGodzilla: A particularly odd example in that there's a degree of fan apathy toward the movie itself -- from existing ''Venom'' fans that are generally suspicious of Sony Pictures or are Marvel Studios fans worried about Spider-Man's future in the MCU -- but there's simultaneously some interest in the movie for specific visual effects. After the second trailer was released, many have said they ''don't'' actually care about the movie's story and writing all that much, but they will be willing to watch it just for the scenes with Eddie Brock fully-transformed into Venom, which look '''[[SugarWiki/VisualEffectsOfAwesome stunning]]'''.

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Eddie's actual transformation into Venom is as suitably nightmarish as one could hope for, and a clear recipient of where the movie's budget actually went. It also looks much larger than the Venom in Spider Man 3, and sports much larger teeth and the trademark tongue. Later, an officially-released still showing Venom [[SlasherSmile smiling]] proved that Venom looking stunning wasn't a one-off.

*** Hardy's line reading of "You're not real you are just in my head" sounds like he's suffering from ElmuhFuddSyndwome. At worst, he sounds like Creator/AdamSandler's signature ManChild babbling. However there's some speculation that, based on the context of the scene and Eddie's stumbling movements, he's actually drunk, or perhaps even overdosed on medication (considering he was seen taking a bunch of pills, thinking he's sick). That and it could be a case of RealityEnsues, as it's unlikely anyone would keep the mental clarity to speak normally as an alien parasite is slowly bonding with their body.

* ScapegoatCreator: Amy Pascal, who is simply one of several ''producers'', gets a lot of the hate for both this film and ''Film/SilverAndBlack'' directed at her exclusively, to the point that those who've decided that they already hate the films openly want her to get fired from Sony [[FridgeLogic as if she's the only person trying to have the films made]] and blame her for the supposed terrible quality [[InsaneTrollLogic of films that haven't even had trailers released yet]]. This is most likely due to her being a major driving force behind incredibly unpopular creative decisions like greenlighting ''Film/Ghostbusters2016'', which caused damage to that franchise due to [[BoxOfficeBomb its financial failure]] resulting from all the [[InternetBackdraft flame wars]] and [[OvershadowedByControversy controversy over the direction and cast]], as well as greenlighting ''WesternAnimation/TheEmojiMovie'', which has developed a reputation for being one of the ''worst'' animated films in years for being a [[MoneyDearBoy blatant cash grab]]. The latter film's very existence has [[NeverLiveItDown painted Sony Pictures as a studio that has no standards]] and will [[MoneyDearBoy do anything, including desperately chasing after current popular trends, to try and make money as opposed to creating good films]], and although the surprise success of ''Film/JumanjiWelcomeToTheJungle'' is undeniably [[WinBackTheCrowd a step in the right direction for the studio]], this film's [[HateDumb detractors]], particularly MCU fans, [[AccentuateTheNegative are all too happy to ignore any successes under Sony's belt]].
