Similar to how Krypton is a Superman show without the Man of Steel, Venom is a Spider-Man film without Spidey himself, focusing on the frachise villain/antihero Eddie Brock / Venom, which had been portrayed by Eric Forman Topher Grace in Sony's original Spider-Man trilogy, and is in this film played by Tom Hardy, with Brock being a journalist with his own show who gets terminated for not minding his own business, and ultimately becomes host to the alien symbiote that can change him into the eponymous character. The film exists in its own universe separate from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and one can argue it to be an Ashcan Copy given its inconsistent quality and wish for Sony to control the rights of Spider-Man characters, but it was still a fun ride.
