It was Axel Foley. Now a brand-new hero is sporting a Detroit Lions look as he takes on the world.
The majority of Motor City fans do like the iconic Lions jacket. It was worn by Eddie Murphy’s character in Beverly Hills Police Officer II. I understand Jared Goff does too.
Now a brand-new character is sporting a close look. In the “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” trailer, Tom Hardy’s character Eddie Brock is wearing either a Detroit Lions coat or a generic Detroit football one.
It’s about 45 seconds into the trailer.
For a city used to so little recognition– well, favorable recognition– some representation is pretty cool. I browsed; however couldn’t find Venom’s connection to Detroit or if there is one, so let me understand if you see anything.
Early responses have been mixed. Some discover it cool. Others find it to be a sort of character set– at the start of the movie, this person is down on his luck however will rise to glory in the next 90-120 minutes.
Whatever– Detroit vs. Everyone. Onto the rest of your notes.
The Lions’ offseason and prepared overhaul is the focus of this week’s Monday Morning Quarterback.
“The elite athleticism that made him such a high pick will still help him hold his own in the pros.” Jeff Okudah made this list of NFL sophomores who might avoid the bust label in 2021.
The Lions are hiring a social media producer and intern of a social network. That could be enjoyable.
