    I think I'll wait till I've actually seen him portray one of spiderman's most notorious villians before I say if he's good or not at it.

    Going into it, I wasn't too thrilled, but I've decided I'm going to wait and see.

    I like it, but I always though Topher would make a great Peter Parker. He's a comedic actor so he knows how to make funny remarks and overall he's got the look. If he was more famous 6 years ago he might have gotten the job instead of McGuire.

    QFT. He would be a way better Parker. I still don't like McGuire as Spidey.

    I think he can do a fine job. Also with McGuire leaving I sorta have hopes instead of Spidey 4 we just get a Venom spinoff.

    I'm with Darkravager, I'll wait until i see the movie. I'm so used to seeing Eddie brock as a muscle bound psychopath when i was into comics in the mid 90's, but at the same time I'm not opposed to change. I like Topher Grace in that 70's show, so I'm willing to give him a chance.

    Not likely, considering how Venom will be defeated.
    I won't tell you how but I think it's the worst defeat a movie villian has ever received. And it totally goes against the comics.
    It also may upset kids and anger parents.

    Let's just say you got a much better chance of seeing Norman Osborn
    (he actually survives in the comics because the goblin serum heals his wounded body and he walks out of the mourge)
    or Doc Ock again.

    I'm a fan of Topher Grace. He'll make a great Venom, but I always thought he'd be better as Spider-Man. Tobey McGuire just doesn't seem to give off a Spider-Man vibe.

    If you are talking about what happens in the novelization, I don't see it going against the comic or angering anyone in terms of what happens, you may be confused on what it said, I was initially. It also leaves it wide open for what could happen to Venom in furture films.

    What he said.

    Honestly though I can't think of a caucasain male with enough muscle suitable for the role though. Besides if Tobey McGuire can buff himself up for the role, no reason Topher Grace can't do the same

    i remember when i first heard Topher's going to be Venom, i was thinking that maybe the movie was leaning towards the Ultimate Venom version ( just completed the videogame by the way )..where Eddie is an average guy. not having huge muscles.
