'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Is a Gay Love Story and I'm Here for It

Venom: Let There Be Carnage is the sequel to the 2018 film Venom. This sequel’s synopsis may say it’s about the new symbiote Carnage, but this movie is really about love. It’s about the love between two insane killers, and the love between an alien symbiote and a human man. And I think that’s beautiful. Spoilers ahead for Venom: Let There Be Carnage. Eddie and Venom’s relationship is the heart of this movie. They begin as roommates who have been living together for too long. Like an old married couple, they’ve grown annoyed with each other and are constantly bickering. It even gets abusive. They fight physically at one point, trying to hurt each other in ways they know the other would suffer from most. Venom wrecks Eddie's apartment and leaves. At first, the two couldn’t be happier to be apart. Yet, they’ve grown codependent. Venom, particularly, misses Eddie (he is a symbiote who needs a host, after all). But first, they must find who they are as individuals. Eddie returns to investigating on his own, and Venom finds his “people” (more on that later).  When the circumstances require it, they get back together after Eddie apologizes to Venom. The two are at their best when they’re together — something they can both finally acknowledge by the end of the movie. One of the best moments is when Anne remarks that Cletus and Carnage are not a match. But Venom and Eddie realize that they are. After saving the day, the pair retire to a beach where Venom confesses love to Eddie. The two then watch the sunset together in one of the most romantic scenes I’ve ever seen in a superhero film.  A quick round of applause for Tom Hardy for portraying such a good love story all by himself. He continues to be amazing in these two roles. Like the first film, the majority of this movie is just Tom Hardy talking to himself, looking nervous, and acting unhinged, which is always entertaining to watch. His physicality made me buy that he was constantly grappling for control of his own body with another being. Hardy’s voice work is also dynamic; most of the time you can’t quite tell that Venom has the same voice.
