Watch: Ryan Kwanten is the Venom We Deserve in ‘Truth in Journalism’

By  · Published on August 1st, 2013

Last year it was Thomas Jane returning as Frank Castle in short film form to show how the character can be done bone-bendingly right. This year, producer Adi Shankar has teamed with none other than Joe Lynch (!) to deliver another solid take on an iconic comic book figure.

Ryan Kwanten verbally tap dances his way through Truth in Journalism as Eddie Brock, a reporter with a particular affliction and an ax to grind against your friendly neighborhood hero. With the similar snap of Man Bites Dog, Eddie has allowed a French film crew to document his morbid daily life.

In under 14 minutes, they’ve righted the wrongs of Spider-Man 3, and you’ll probably want to stick around after the credits.

Why do I feel like Patrick Bateman is working in one of those office buildings?
