In a quest to continue being the go-to comic for creating the most nonsensical blogs, this week s issue of Squirrel Girl uses basic computer science and counting in binary to deliver a splash page so fundamentally rad it should probably grace the cover of a mid- 80s metal album.Suffice to say, it s rather brilliant.Unbeatable Squirrel Girl 11—written by Ryan North, and featuring guest artist Jacob Chabot and colors from Rico Renzi—takes a break from its usual adventures to deliver a wonderful dreamscape battle between Squirrel Girl and the villainous Nightmare.It starts off with a fight between Doreen and Doc Ock, which is how Doreen first learns she s in a dream because, of course, Ock has been dead for a few years now .But the fight allows her to dissect Octavius villainous boasts as if they were basic programming statements:She continues with the programming lesson long enough to distract Ock so she can beat him, but the fun really begins when Nightmare reveals himself to Doreen, attempting to beat Doreen in her dreams so she ll be driven insane.
Following the accidental explosion at SpaceX on Sept. 1, company founder Elon Musk has been relatively quiet.But an interview posted this week gives us more insight into his thoughts on one of his favorite topics: artificial intelligence.And while he's become known in recent years for being outspoken on the dangers of AI and, to some, painting science fiction-level scenarios that may not be viable for some time, in this talk he offers a different scenario regarding the Singularity."I think if we can effectively merge with AI by improving the neural link between your cortex and your digital extension of yourself … then effectively you become an AI-human symbiote," said Musk.That seems like the best outcome I can think of."This notion of creating human-AI hybrids, which Musk has mentioned before as a possible "neural lace," extends to his thoughts on new startups.
p Variety is reporting that Tom Hardy, who played Bane in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, will next play another iconic comic book villain, Venom.The frequent Spider-Man villain is getting his own film next year, which will be directed by Ruben Fleischer, who made Zombieland.A few months back, Sony surprised film fans everywhere by putting a Venom movie on their release schedule.Rumours of a film based on the character had been going around for years but, once Spider-Man started being shared with Marvel Studios, they sort of went away.With Hardy and Fleischer now aboard, Venom will lead what’s expected to be Sony’s own unique sliver of the Marvel universe — one that’ll feature other famous Spider-Man rogues, and may include a Black Cat and Silver Sable film.No one knows if these villain films will crossover, or just tell one-off comic book stories; what is almost certain, however, is that Spider-Man won’t be part of them.
After the casting of Tom Hardy as Venom, we were already excited about the 2018 movie.Now that Riz Ahmed is attached, we're drooling with anticipation.A few months after nabbing Tom Hardy (Dunkirk) to star in his upcoming Venom movie, director Ruben Fleischer has reportedly pulled off another casting coup, adding rising British star Riz Ahmed (The Night Of), according to ScreenRant.No official word has come from Sony Pictures regarding Ahmed’s role — Variety reports that he would be playing a “popular Marvel Comics character” — but rumors indicate that the 34-year-old actor-slash-rapper will play Cletus Kasady, known better as Carnage.Technically, like Venom, Carnage is a symbiote — a sentient, gooey alien thing that bonds with a host, imparting its power and often subsuming the person entirely.While down-on-his-luck journalist Eddie Brock (Hardy) becomes a sort of antihero after bonding with Venom, Kasady is a psychopathic serial killer before absorbing the Carnage symbiote within his prison cell, which transforms him into a full-on supervillain.
Crossovers are an obvious fit for the ragtag band of mutants.But I can’t say I’ve ever seen this one before.Starting to January 2018, the “Poison X” crossover, starting in “X-Men Blue Annual 1", will see the symbiote-bonded Eddie Brock team up with X Men Blue’s team of unstuck-in-time OG X-Men (Jean Grey, Cyclops, Iceman, Beast, & Angel) to fight a crew of Poisons, the interdimensional villains that can absorb symbiotes for power and profit.While an unlikely narrative fit, this crossover makes creative sense.The current writer on X-Men Blue is Cullen Bunn, who helmed the Venomverse crossover event that introduced the Poisons (and a bunch of alternate universe symbiote-bonded heroes and villains) and who used to write for the main Venom book.The “Poison X” crossover will last for six issues, starting in January.
The first trailer for "Venom," starring Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock and his alien symbiote, dropped on Thursday morning.But to some fans' disappointment, it only showed Hardy in his role as Brock, and not Venom.A menacing poster was released Wednesday in advance of the trailer.Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed also star."Venom" is scheduled for release on Oct. 5 in the U.S. and U.K., with no Australia release date yet.
After months of secrecy and uncertainty about just what Sony’s Venommight look and feel like on the big screen, the first trailer has finally dropped.Unsurprisingly, the trailer’s light on plot details, but what it’s chock full of is a brooding, moody Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) reflecting on his life and the briefest of glimpses at the horrific transformation that turns him into the lethal protector.And by brief—we mean brief, as in there are a couple of split seconds where you can see the titular symbiote trapped within a container and later see its black essence spreading through Hardy’s body.
If you’ve been waiting to see what the new movie version of Venom will look like — well, keep waiting.Venom stars Tom Hardy (!)as Eddie Brock/Venom, and the film’s first teaser trailer has plenty of Hardy as Brock, plus glimpses of fellow cast members Michelle Williams (!!)Sadly, though, it lacks any footage of Venom in-costume.For those of you who aren’t comic book fans: Venom is a human being in an alien “symbiote” costume who first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man 299.He was the villain in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3, where he was played by Topher Grace.
With Black Panther coming up next week and Avengers: Infinity War not far behind it, you’d be forgiven if you forgot that Sony is working on a standalone movie starring Venom.The teaser gives us our first peek at Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, a journalist who eventually becomes Venom, antihero and occasional Spider-Man archvillian.Unfortunately, those of you hoping to catch of glimpse of Venom himself are going to be disappointed.While we do see the alien symbiote that eventually merges with Brock, we don’t actually get to see what Venom will look like in this movie.It seems that we’ll have to wait for the next trailer for that particular reveal.READ MORE: Why Sony’s Venom movie is a huge mistakeAt this point, it’s unclear if we can expect an appearance from Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in Venom.
The second full trailer for Venom was released Monday night, and unlike the first one, it actually showed the title character.When the first trailer came out in February, some fans complained because it showed star Tom Hardy only in his role as Eddie Brock, and not his alien symbiote.The new trailer delivers Venom in all forms, from black goo to full-on monstrous creature who really needs to see an orthodontist.A new poster also shows both the characters.Marvel Comics character Brock is a journalist and foe of Spider-Man, who bonds with the symbiote to become Venom.The film comes from the new Sony Marvel Universe, not the familiar Marvel Cinematic Universe.
While Marvel is gearing up to premiere the culmination of ten years of movies with this week’s Avengers: Infinity War, Sony has been rather quietly plugging away with its feature film based on Venom, one of Spider-Man’s most popular enemies.The film’s first teaser trailer premiered back in February, but unfortunately, we didn’t get to see Venom himself – merely Eddie Brock, who acts as a host for the Venom symbiote.That all changes today with the first official trailer for Venom, which finally shows us what we all want to see.Yes indeed, this new trailer shows Venom rather than just Eddie Brock, but not before giving us a little bit of backstory.As it turns out, Sony seems to have worked out a Spider-Man free origin for Venom, with the symbiote that bonds with Brock being discovered by a shady businessman who uses it in human testing.Eddie Brock, who works as a journalist for the Daily Bugle, takes it upon himself to investigate the lab experimenting with this symbiote.
Spider-Man will always swing into our hearts, but it was the darker character of Venom who impressed audiences attending San Diego Comic-Con's Hall H panel on Friday night.The live action Venom movie follows Tom Hardy (who was at the Comic-Con panel) as Eddie Brock -- a journalist who bonds and becomes the host of Venom, an alien known as a symbiote.The Hall H panel at Comic-Con showed off new footage from Venom, which director Ruben Fleischer reminded the audience that it still had some visual effects to complete before a final version is ready.The director also suggested more villains could be in the movie, "We are planning a big world with this Venom story."But in the meantime, Hardy is having fun playing the unusual lead originally created in Marvel comics."My son is a massive Venom fan, and he was a strong influence on my why I should play Venom specifically," Hardy told the audience attending Sony's Hall H panel, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The second had a much better look at Sony’s take on the creepy Marvel anti-hero.Sony came to Comic-Con today to give us a tiny glimpse at what’s in store to attendees, and a frightful new villain for Eddie Brock and his symbiote friend to tussle with.Although it’s not being shared online yet, Sony took to Hall H in San Diego with Venom director Ruben Fleischer and stars Tom Hardy and Riz Ahmed to debut some bombastic and wildly violent footage from the movie (which Hardy went on to say he was making for his Venom-mad son to watch, which is weird given all the, well, copious violence.)The footage shown started with Hardy’s Eddie Brock going into a store.The clerk, who he knows, says he looks terrible and he should meditate.And the tape, voiced by Peter Cullen (of Optimus Prime fame), tells Eddie to relax.
The latest trailer for Sony’s Venom delivers the most extensive look yet at the superpowered title character played by Tom Hardy.The film’s first teaser focused on Hardy and the other human cast members, with no footage of the actual alien “symbiote” (basically, it’s a sentient costume with a bad attitude).When we actually got to see Venom a few months later, some people were really into it.This new trailer goes even further than those previous glimpses of oozing CGI skin and enormous fangs — it’s got big Venom action scenes and even a full-on, joke-y symbiote monologue.Venom was created by David Michelinie and Todd McFarlane (who drew on previous storylines about the symbiote costume).He started out as Spider-Man’s enemy, and that’s the role he filled on-screen a decade ago in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3.
When it comes to Apple's fiscal third-quarter earnings report Tuesday, the only thing that really matters is what it says about the next iPhone.And while Apple doesn't give many -- or really, any -- details about its next iPhone during earnings calls, it gives small hints.CEO Tim Cook occasionally will make comments like Apple's expecting an "exciting fall," but that's as verbose as he gets.Still, financial analysts read the tea leaves to estimate how many devices Apple thinks it can sell in its September quarter, which usually includes the first week or two of new iPhone sales.By the time the period ends each June, Apple's newest iPhones are already nine months old.During the quarter, people no longer line up at Apple Stores but instead wait for the next phones to hit the market, likely in September.
Who could’ve guessed it, said beast is not that bad once you get to know it as it lives inside your body.And once you get past, you know, all the wanton murder it does.The new trailer for the Sony film delves a little more into the actual basic premise, something mostly absent from our earlier glimpses of the film – Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy with an accent that continues to perplex), a journalist who uncovers a very shady experiment with alien species that, in turns, leads to him becoming connected with a symbiotic being that transforms him into the violent superpowered anti-hero Venom.There’s a lot of good Venom-y action here – even some tantalising shots of Riz Ahmed’s villain in action as the other symbiote of the film, Riot – as well as lot of interesting displays of just how Venom will deal with its dual protagonists, given that they occupy the same body and a lot of Hardy just talking to himself is bound to get old at some point.And, it’s also darkly funny at times, both from Hardy’s own reactions as Eddie gets further caught up in the symbiote’s violence, or even the symbiote itself, who relishes in giving some...and, let’s say, graphic threats.Venom rolls into cinemas like a turd on the wind on 5th October.
Sony has release a couple of trailers for Venom so far, and with each new one, we learn a little more about the movie.In the last trailer, we finally got to see what Venom will look and sound like, but this time around, he gets a lot more screen time.He isn’t alone, either, as this trailer shows us that Venom isn’t the only symbiote roaming the streets.Though this new trailer does show us some footage that we’ve seen before, there’s plenty that’s new.We get to see more of Venom in action, and the trailer further details the uneasy relationship between Eddie Brock and his symbiote.The trailer also makes Venom’s fondness of eating people clear, which is a somewhat disturbing aspect of an already creepy character.
Diehard Spider-Man fans will swear up and down that there’s no way to make a movie about Eddie Brock and Venom without Peter Parker, but that’s really not the case.Sony’s upcoming Venom standalone movie is the perfect opportunity to prove that the character can be much more compelling and nuanced when it’s anything other than a Spider-Man villain.From the looks of it, Venom significantly reworks the character’s origins in order to get around the tangled legal web that comes along with Spider-Man’s big screen appearances.Rather than having gone through the traumatic experiences of bonding and then breaking apart from Spider-Man, Venom’s symbiote appears to arrive somewhat fully formed before it first meets Eddie Brock, who of course becomes its unwitting host.Weirdly-accented man meets monster, monster possesses the man, the two go on a murder spree, and the man is helpless to stop himself from going along for the ride.In Eddie, the symbiote sees an opportunity to move through the world freely, indulge its murderous desires, and most importantly, to defend itself from harm.
Actor Tom Hardy told Esquire that he based his "Venom" performance on writer and director Woody Allen, UFC fighter Conor McGregor, and rapper Redman.Hardy said he didn't tell the studio, Sony, about his inspirations: "You don’t say s--- like that to the studio."He said he was inspired by Allen's "tortured neurosis and all the humor that can come from that."Tom Hardy found unusual inspiration in three completely different people for his performance in "Venom," which hits theaters later this year: controversial writer and director Woody Allen, UFC fighter Conor McGregor, and the rapper Redman.Hardy plays troubled reporter Eddie Brock in the movie, who becomes the anti-hero Venom after an alien symbiote latches on to him.The character is a classic Spider-Man villain who the studio, Sony, is giving the solo treatment.
