UPDATED WITH TRAILER: The Disney Version of Venom is Still More Badass Than Sony’s

Inside the Magic

This, as you can probably tell, is the Disney Infinity Venom figurine – part of the new Marvel expansion. And even simplified and (arguably) “made cute” to be acceptable for kids, it still maintains the essence of Venom – a black abyss in human form with insanely oversized teeth and tongue. There’s something so primal about that design that no matter how badly the character is written or treated, I still come back to the image – he’s like a kid’s doodle of pure evil.

Yet Sam Raimi couldn’t even get this close. I don’t expect Sony’s new clusterfuck of a film series will either.

Oh hey, there’s a trailer now…
