the con­fus­ing plot hole in venom

Empire (UK) - - PREVIEW -

There were plenty of log­i­cally baf­fling mo­ments in Venom — the un­ex­pected dip in the lob­ster tank; the post-cred­its scene; the “turd in the wind” line. But one sig­nif­i­cant plot hole stood out: the el­derly Malaysian woman host­ing the Riot sym­biote.

As many fans pointed out, there’s a six-month time jump after the space­ship crashes. But de­spite sym­biotes need­ing new hosts, the woman was still sym­biote-laden, pa­tiently wait­ing at the air­port, six months on.

When con­fronted with the plot hole, di­rec­tor Ruben Fleis­cher could only con­cede the point. “Yeah, that’s a good ques­tion,” he told Gamespot. “That’s one of our few — hope­fully few — logic bumps.” Back in the lob­ster tank with you!
