Say what you want about Venom, but you can’t deny that it had at least one major plot hole. Whether you consider that a problem or not is down to personal preference. But there’s no arguing that it’s there–just ask Venom director Ruben Fleischer, like we did. Here’s your spoiler warning–if you haven’t seen Venom, proceed at your own risk.
The issue occurs near the beginning of the movie. When the Riot Symbiote escapes the Life Foundation’s custody, it finds its way to a crowded marketplace in Malaysia. Naturally, it goes on a killing spree, eventually bonding with an old woman in the crowd. The movie makes Riot’s goal at this point explicit: It wants to get to San Francisco, where the Life Foundation’s headquarters is located.
