Spider-Man’s Venom Gets his Own Movie Spin-off?

8 Comments

Alien symbiote and piles of goo Venom to get his own movie post-“Spider-Man 3″? Hey, why not, it’s not like we saw enough of him in Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man 3″. In fact, we didn’t see a whole lot of anyone in that movie, thanks to Raimi’s insistence on jamming the flick with about two villains too many. Seriously, Sam, what were you thinking? In any case, the news that Venom might be getting his own spin-off movie sounds fantastic — but only if Topher Grace stays the hell out of it.

But Venom fans rejoice, Marvel is moving forward with a new stand alone film, yep you heard right, Venom is coming back to the big screen.

We’ve confirmed that “the studio” has met recently with several “A list writers” about a spin-off film.

Back to the Grace issue. I liked the skinny kid from That ’70s Show, but man, was he ever wrong for Eddie Brock! Especially when Grace did that smirk of his. Wow, what bad casting there, Sam Raimi. Then again, nearly everything about “Spider-Man 3″ was a misfire, so you know…

    Wow, why not blame Raimi for everything? You realize he was receiving pressure from higher-ups to include Venom in the first place, right? He was going to make it a simpler movie about Sqandman and Vulture teaming up. And you realize that Topher fit the role as written for the film, right? No, I guess you don’t realize those things, and just have an irrational hate-on for Sam Raimi! Nix, I can tell you’re an upset comics fan, but you are incredibly naive about moviemaking. It’s a shame you have a place to spout your ill-informed opinions as if they were fact to a wider audience.

    Well yeah, but I wouldn’t have such a “hate-on” for Sam Raimi if he hadn’t kicked my cat and threw my grandma out the window for writing him that mean letter about “Spider-Man 3″. I mean, seriously, she was 96 years old! (The cat, I mean…)

    I gotta dissagree w/ ya Nix. I think Topher did a pretty good job as the spidey 3 Venom. And also I think a Venom spinoff will suck.. no wait hear me out. I like the Venom char but if the studios make him the main star of the movie think about how toned down and lame V will be.
    A few too many villains? yeah maybe.. but if you want to gripe about something, my biggest gripe was Gwen Stacey, WTH. First Spidey was a little confusing for me, I finally resolved my issue w/ the story changes by assuming they combined the Gwen character w/ MJ.. as all Spidey fans know Gwen was spidey’s first love, and was killed by an inexperienced Spiderman. Heck I loved that story line, adding to the whole tortured hero theme.. the goblin threw Gwen off a building and spidey caught her before she hit the ground w/ his web with the sound of a snap..he had stopped her fall too quickly and it broke her neck. It was pretty much the whole story they wrote in Spidey 1 but for 2 changes.. Gwen became MJ and when Gobby threw her off the roof spidey saved her. (check out Amazing Spider man #121 )and guess what happens at the end after Gwen dies.. Spidey beats the heck out him in mad rage but at last minute decides not to kill Green Goblin.. but the Goblin impales himself with the blade of his glider and appears to have died (sound familiar?) So if Gwen and MJ were made the same person what the heck is she showing up now for? Does this mean they changed the two character’s roles.. maybe in Spidey 4 he will accidently kill MJ and later go on to marry Gwen? lmao
