All The 'Venom' Easter Eggs And References You Missed

Eddie Brock, Reporter
As in the comics, Eddie Brock is a news journalist and Venom uses some of the same themes from the books in its screenplay. In both, Brock's career indirectly leads to his becoming Venom.

However, in the comics, Brock blames Spider-Man for his woes and becomes a bodybuilder to relieve his stress. That's why Venom is such a hulking angry beast. Brock is full of Spidey rage and completely swole when the symbiote finds him.
