The fictional superhero Spider-Man is familiar to us all, with his red and blue webbed costume. And now, it’s time for Venom, a character who first appeared in the 2007 Spider-Man 3 movie, to take the spotlight.

一身红蓝相间蜘蛛服的超级英雄“蜘蛛侠”,大家都很熟悉了。如今是该“毒液”大显身手的时候了,这个角色曾在2007年的电影《蜘蛛侠3》中首度出场。

UK actor Tom Hardy, 41, who stars as the title character in the movie Venom, plays “a lighter antihero with both good and evil minds, who is supposed to be an alternative to the standard superhero,” reported BBC news.

据BBC新闻报道,41岁的英国演员汤姆·哈迪扮演了电影《毒液:致命守护者》的主人公,这是“一名亦正亦邪、带有些许反英雄意味的人物,是与大家公认的超级英雄相对的另类英雄。”

In the film, TV journalist Eddie Brock is a strange man who often breaks things and screams. To some extent, he’s regarded as a loser as his life is full of trouble, including a breakup with his fiancee.

影片中,电视台记者艾迪·布洛克是个经常搞破坏并且喜欢大吼大叫的怪人。在某种程度上,他被视为失败者,生活一团糟,还和未婚妻分了手。

Soon in the story, Brock is infected by Venom, a being from outer space. By sharing a body with it, Brock changes into a 3-meter-tall monster.

故事中,布洛克很快被来自外太空的生命“毒液”感染。布洛克和“毒液”共用一具身体,变成了一个3米高的怪物。

People may think the monster with a snaking tongue and sharpened teeth is powerful, but it turns out that Venom is also “a loser” on its home planet.

人们或许会认为,这个长舌尖齿的怪物异常强大,但其实“毒液”在自己的母星也是个“失败者”。

“Most superheroes or supervillains are individuals; it’s just about one person. And what’s unique and really awesome about Eddie and Venom is that it’s like one plus one equals three,” the movie director Ruben Fleischer told CBR News.

“大多数超级英雄或者超级大反派都是独立的个体 —— 故事都只和一人有关。但艾迪和‘毒液’令人惊叹的独特之处就在于,他们达到了1+1=3的效果,”电影导演鲁本·弗雷斯彻在接受“漫画书资源”(CBR) 新闻网站采访时表示。

The superhero with a scary yet smiling face has uncontrollable superhuman strength, as well as a darkness inside of him. At first, Brock’s alien “visitor” simply begins as a voice in the journalist’s head. But soon, it takes over Brock, attacking those he doesn’t like and causing trouble.

这位笑脸阴森可怖的超级英雄拥有无法控制的超能力,且内心阴暗。布洛克的外来“访客”一开始只是这位记者头脑中的声音。但没多久它就控制了布洛克,攻击那些他不喜欢的人,制造了不少麻烦。

In an effort to find a proper way to co-exist, Venom helps Brock in his fight against a super-rich man who is furious over a report Brock writes on an evil scheme the man’s planning. And eventually, Venom and Brock decide to work together to stop evil from taking over Earth.

为了找到合适的共生方法,“毒液”帮助布洛克对抗一名超级富豪,后者因为布洛克在一篇报道中揭露了其阴谋而怒火中烧。最终,“毒液”和布洛克决定并肩作战,共同阻止邪恶势力入侵地球。

So the message Fleischer wants to send to audiences is that even those with a humble background can develop power. And as a line near the end of the movie proves when Venom tells Brock, “I’m a loser like you”, we can all become heroes if we work together.

因此,弗雷斯彻想向观众传递这样的信息:出身卑微的人也能拥有力量。正如影片结尾“毒液”对布洛克所说的那样:“我和你一样是个失败者,但我们携手合作便能成为英雄。”
