With Sony's latest superhero offering Venom set to hit theaters in October, some fans have aired their gripes about the character's overall look in the film.

The new character design may look more menacing than its comic counterpart but gone is the iconic white spider logo that the Marvel anti-hero has had since his introduction in the late 80s.

Director Ruben Fleischer revealed to IGN that the real reason behind Venom not having the iconic white spider logo was simply because their take on the character didn't exactly originate from the Spider-Man universe we're all familiar with.

"If you look at the comics, in Venom, there is just elements of white within his suit. Because our character does not originate from Spider-Man, it makes no sense to put a spider on his chest. We tried to be as accurate as we possibly could, even though some people feel it's inaccurate, but there is a lot of white and we wanted to give him a distinctive pattern."

Venom co-creator Todd McFarlane addressed the concern most fans had with the costume and came up with his own solution - tweaking the film design while incorporating his classic touch to the character's look. McFarlane's design most likely wouldn't make it in the future films but it's still nice to see how Venom would have looked on screen if they went with his classic design.
