Venom — Sony’s recently released tale of the world’s worst journalist and his head-chomping pet alien parasite — poses a number of interesting questions, such as “Is this movie bad or perfect dumb fun?” “Where do the heads go when Venom eats them?” and “What kind of accent, exactly, is Tom Hardy trying to do here?”

Leaving the cinema, however, one thought in particular stuck with me: “What would happen if you crammed Venom in an e-cigarette and vaped it?”

Sony’s Spider-Man-free Venom solo movie is finally upon us, and as wild as it might sound to comic book purists, the film totally works without the titular antihero’s nemesis.

We recently spoke with director Ruben Fleischer about his personal connection to the source material, and why deviating from Venom’s canon actually gave him the freedom to explore the character in interesting new ways.
