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.
