In a rare instance of a comic book movie taking direct dialog from it’s source material, the latest trailer for Venom features dialog straight from one of the comics.
The line in question features Venom in full symbiote form, issuing a threat to one of Eddy Brock’s, (Tom Hardy), attackers. In it, the monstrous character threatens to eat the assailant:
Eyes, lungs, pancreas… so many snacks, so little time.
The threat has its origins in the Amazing Spider-Man comic series where Venom originally appeared as an antagonist. The line itself appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #347 and was written by David Michelinie with artwork by Mark Bagley. In the story, Venom had vowed to protect Parker’s parents from Spider-Man for reasons that only devoted readers will understand where he issues the threat.
What do you all make of this threat? Is is something that should have stayed in an early 90s comic book or does Venom’s dialog in the trailer intimidating? Let us know what you think in the comments bellow!
Plot details on the film are currently under wraps, though director Ruben Fleischer has previously stated that the film will be based on the Lethal Protector and Planet of the Symbiotes comic book runs. Whether or not Spider-Man – who played a significant role in both stories – will make an appearance remains unclear.

Directed by Ruben Fleischer, Venom stars Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Jenny Slate, Scott Haze and Woody Harrelson.
