An insurance lawyer has explained why Eddie is not responsible for the destruction caused by Venom in the 2018 Marvel film, Married. Married follows a failed reporter named Eddie (Tom Hardy) who is attached to an alien entity. The entity is one of many symbiotes that have invaded Earth. In a twist, the creature takes a liking to Earth and decides to protect it while Eddie uses his powers. The film stars Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Woody Harrelson, Scott Hayes, Reid Scott and Jenny Slate. The 2018s Married was directed by Reuben Fleischer, with Andy Serkis stepping in to direct the sequel, Venom: Let there be carnage.


In a video released by Vanity Fair, insurance attorney and superhero enthusiast Stacey Giulianti broke down why Eddie is not responsible for Venom’s destruction in the film. Giulianti said that due to Venom possessing Eddie’s mortal body, Eddie is not responsible for the damage caused by his symbiote. He added that there is even precedent that may apply to the situation.

The precedent cited is a case involving Siamese-American conjoined twins Chang and Eng Bunker. Chang is said to have gotten into a bar fight and was pinned with a battery charge. However, the judge did not arrest the twins because Eng had done nothing wrong. Check out Stacey Giulianti’s full analysis Married below.

“He’s an equal part of Eddie that lives inside him. Eddie didn’t actually cause any of the damage himself. Venom caused the damage, which raises an interesting liability issue because if someone is mugged and forced to be the getaway driver for a bank robbery, they are not responsible. They did it under what we call duress. Duress is a legal term where you are often forced to do something under the threat of violence or you might get hurt. So holding Eddie responsible for this seems very unlikely . No insurance company will say you are responsible. Now we are not talking about mental illness or multiple personality disorder. Courts have often found that is not an excuse because it is still the same person even if you claim to have multiple people living inside you. But in this case, Eddie really has someone else living inside him. And you’d say, “Well, we never really had that situation.” And the fact is, we did have that situation. Chang and one g Bunker, conjoined twins, would often go out to a bar, and Chang, one half of the conjoined twins, would drink too much and get into a bar fight. He knocked a guy out cold, committed a battery, and he was arrested. So Chang and Eng were brought before the judge and the judge had to make a decision. Did he imprison Chang, who committed a battery, but also conjoined twin Eng, who did nothing wrong, or did he let them both go? And the judge in that ruling said, ‘I can’t put an innocent man in prison for this type of crime.’ And he let them both go.”
