There were long discussions about saliva on the set of the recently released movie Venom. The amount of spit that should come from the symbiote's tongue dominated much of the filmmakers' discourse.
The tongue's appearance has garnered a lot of attention online, including some pretty NSFW posts.
Rotten Tomato who?? We don't care. We're out here wanting Venom tongue https://t.co/kJfereI6Ys— Yacky ︽✵︽ (@el_l3chero) October 5, 2018
Fleischer clearly understood the interest in the tongue when working on the film.
"They must have done 20 different versions of a tongue with different lengths and shapes and curves and you kind of just plug them in and seen how they feel until you kind of just land on one that you think is right," Fleischer said. "It definitely was a process but it's such an important aspect of the character that you have to get it right."
"I determined to take it a step further, I gave Venom an even bigger, crazier tongue -- not realizing that Todd didn't do anything special or unusual with his tongue at all," Larsen explained in a Facebook post.
Venom is out in theaters now!
