So who is considered sexier by the Internet, Thanos or Venom?
Venom. No contest.
Thanks? Y'mean swole California Raisin who's too stupid to realize that he can just use his omnipotence to make more resources. Uhhh... No thanks.
Ya gotta be a lot prettier than that to get away with being that dumb.
Its more about proving a point than actually finding something that works.
So he's less stupid & more pig-headed asshole.
Still stupid. Venom doesn’t delude himself. He just likes to eat bad guys with his boyfriend.
I think that’s why Venom is more popular
People love the weird kinky relationship between Eddie and Venom
Internet loves suffering boys
You guys are never gonna let that one go are you? Seriously, I don't think I've seen this many people point out how little sense a well intentioned extremist's goals make before. I almost feel bad for Thanos.
I guess that's just what love is.

I finally saw this movie. I don't think it was terrible; better, at least, than the likes of Ghost Rider or the theatrical cut of Daredevil that the movie kept getting compared to. But not a lot better.
Different strokes. Thanos is a conservative sex-bomb. His goal is to reverse the advancement of progress to a point when the universe had half as many people in it, and then just assume that the universe can stay frozen at that stage forever.
Venom is a liberal sex-bomb, creating his own entirely new letter of LGBT inclusion and blazing trails in human/alien relations.
I guess we don't really have a thread for Morbius or Sony's Marvel Universe (ugh, still think it's a bad idea in the long run), so I'll have to put these updates here:
Its why Venom thrives in San Fransisco.
Might as well drop it here:
Tom Hardy will return in Venom 2.
Oh yeah, and Amy Pascal is teasing that Tom Holland might appear this time.
(The little voice in my head is saying "Heck no he won't.")
We in the multiverse boys
Yeah, Venom 2 is still happening.
And its director might be Ulysses Klaue himself, Andy Serkis.
I mean, he directed second-unit shoots during The Hobbit and fully directed two films, Breathe and Mowgli: Legends of the Jungle, so he should be a fine director. And he's used to mocap and CGI.
Sony is also considering Bumblebee's Travis Knight and Rise of the Planet of the Apes' Rupert Wyatt as directors for Venom 2.
Gah, Far From Home made a billion, I'm pretty sure Sony's Universe of Marvel Stuff is more irrelevant now than it was before...
Hey, Travis Knight is a great director! He did Kubo and the Two Strings!
No argument there, but I'm worried he'll get pestered by Sony's executive meddling...
He also directed the only good Transformers movie.
I think you just incurred the wrath of all the fans of the first Transformers movie (the animated one with Unicron and the death of Optimus, not the first Bayformers movie).
For the record, I'm not one of them. I just couldn't really get into the Transformers franchise/fandom the way others seem to.

The animated Transformers movie is AWESOME, but it’s not necessarily good. I love it, but it’s an example of Narm Charm.
The original animated movie is entertaining but regardless of the narm charm & quotable lines it’s generally agree even by the fandom that it’s not exactly a good quality movie plot or character wise.
The Bumblebee movie is the first Transformers movie ever to actually nail it on the plot & characters for the most part.

My biggest concern about Venom 2 is the casting of Woody Harrelson as Carnage.
Carnage is supposed to be a highly energetic maniac. Harrelson tends more towards quietly unhinged characters. I don't think the character really fits.
I'd have preferred someone like Jim Carrey or even Will Farrell. Someone who built a career on being loud and zany.
Well, after seeing Harrelson at Wimbledon last month, yeah, he fits the part.
Big budget superhero movies have had a problem fusing “wild” and “ competent villain” for a while. The only latest successes I can think of of the top of my head in integrating chaotic nature is Joker from over a decade ago (has it been so long since Dark Knight?) and Green Goblin with Raimi. There have been attempts, yeah: Jared Leto’s Joker, Ultron, but they mostly fell flat for one reason or another.
Triple A films really like their intense, focused, restrained kind of baddies these days. The closest you get is bad guys with humor attached, but there’s also not a lot of that in villains that are meant to be taken seriously (at least, humor that isn’t just sarcasm), with the only example in film I can think of (though again, only off the top of my head) is Ego (and Olivia Octavius, but Enter the Spiderverse is something of a unique treasure).
So Carnage should be interesting.
