Venom follows the life of a famous journalist named Eddie Brock. He is hotheaded but great at his work. He runs a show named “The Eddie Brock Report” where he uncovers hidden truths about people and organizations. As part of his job, Eddie was assigned to do an investigation about the allegations thrown at the Life Foundation. They are involved in space travel programs. However, when one of their space shuttle crash lands, they find one of the astronauts has something latched on to him which kills everyone in the ambulance. Carlton Drake is the leader of the Life Foundation. When Eddie goes to find the truth behind the deaths and the involvement of Drake with it, he is fired from his job.
The movie then shows the life of the characters six months later. Eddie is jobless and has lost his family. He is ignorant of what happens to the humankind. Drake continues to experiment with the symbiote that killed the astronaut and other. However, Eddie’s life takes a different turn when the symbiote enters his body. It becomes his alter ego and calls itself Venom. The problem comes in satisfying its hunger because it eats humans and anything it finds on its way.
The movie ends with Eddie coming in terms with Venom and using him to take revenge on Drake and also get rid off bad people. Venom 2 is expected to feature its new antagonist Cranage, and we might see more of the rivalry between the two.
