Empire: Movie News - Venom Getting A Spin-Off?
Well it seems like talks of a Venom solo movie are in process... I don't really know how to feel about this one. I don't know whether they'd somehow come up with some cheat to make it continue on from Spider-man 3 or if it will be a total restart of the character with a new origin that leaves out good ol spidey. Also would they take him down the anti-hero route making him less of a villain? As cool as Venom is, surely the best thing about him is the dynamic he has with Spider-man so I can't see this working.

I was so pissed to see how little time Venom had in Spiderman 3, I'd love to see him get his own flick.

Since it would be an expansion on Venom from the last Spider-man movie I wouldn't mind. Either that or they could've made Spider-man 3 longer with more development.

I didn't think that Toby Mcguire (sp?) was a good pick for Venom. I always pictured his alter-ego to be a big, strong guy. Not a skinny little pothead.

I agree with Cons, I was disappointed by how little time Venom got in Spiderman 3. I would definitely go see this if they made it.

Topher Grace, Toby is Spiderman.

I think it's a nice selection because it's a case of opposites (kind of like the superheroes themselves).

I think it worked well in Spiderman 3. Killing venom was probably a mistake though considering he can't easily be brought back into the script.

As for an entirely new movie with him, it would have to be separate. Bad thing is that the plots can't really coincide. Venom was created and killed within the course of Spiderman 3, which ends up at no more than a few days in plot timeline.

They would have to think of a new way to introduce him, or a way to revive him somehow. Both of which I think will not go over well.

That's what I get for not thinking before I post. Thanks for the catch, Cons, I meant Topher.
