    Id like to see him starting as a bad guy but then having to fight Carnage and turn good guy as the plot.

    I was wandering when we would hear more about this. Venom is one of my favorite comic book characters, and though I did actually like Spidey 3, I think he deserves more than that. Can't wait to see the action figures for this movie. Hopefully either Carnage or the other one (can't remember the name at the moment for some reason) make appearances in this one, or any sequel it may get (even better if both get involved).

    So who would be Venom since Eddie Brock is dead? I mean you can't really do it as a side story to 3 cause he wasn't even Venom for very long and just went straight for Spiderman.

    Reboot ala Hulk.

    I can only hope, I can only pray, because Spiderman 3 totally screwed up what Venom was all about.

    Flashbacks to the horrid 90's series. Venom does not make a good good guy or anti hero, he should be used like Antony hopkins hannibal if they want to do a movie. But they want pg-13 so it'll end up like catwoman, since it's sony just trying to hang on to as many marvel licences as they can.

    Edward Brock JUNIOR is (supposedly) dead. Who's to say that this film couldn't be about Brock Sr. ????

    Wow. Awesome news.

    I hope there is a guest appearance by Spider-man and that he does a new piano number accompanied by some interpretive dance.
    That was my favorite scene in Spider-man 3.
    It totally captured what the alien suit was all about: playing the piano and then going into aggro dance.

    Hulk, Iron Man, Dark Knight, Hellboy -all these super hero movies this summer sucked.
    Ya know why? No dancing.

    You were just being sarcastic (or it reads sarcastically, at the least), but I had to. This Venom movie will more than likely be like the Hulk movie, in that it has nothing to do with the previous one.

    I like the concept of Venom. Though I can't think of a storyline that involved Venom that didn't include him bitching about Spider-Man besides when he got his own spin off in the 90s. Even then that sucked.

    If this idea does pan out because this isn't the first time the AWSUM idea hasn't came up, recast Venom. Topher doesn't even make a good Ultimate venom.

    Sony obviously want to hold onto the Spider-Man franchise (tho I'll like to see a reboot by Marvel eventually) but Venom may be a hard sell because its entire existence is due to Spidey and not including him in the movie may be hard. The movie will likely not have any ties to the third movie and we shouldn't expect Tobey Grace to reprise his role. The obvious villain is Carnage but then again, there's nobody else imo. Here's hoping they won't screw up the movie for one of the best villain/anti hero from Marvel.

    Oh yes, the audience would never root for the bad guy, no, not ever! The audience just HAS to root for human characters or a villain with a heart of gold.

    Give me Topher Grace and I'll be happy either way...

    Venom in SM3 was not Venom of Marvel comics. If this movie is true, then I hope that it has nothing to do with SM3.

    The original story for Venom is cheesy, but I liked the Ultimate version of him. How he is tied into the super-soldier formula makes for a better story.

    It took over a decade to bring the Catwoman spin off to the screen. Ant-Man's been on the slate for the last 15 years. Don't count on any of this happening soon, if at all.

    Fixed.

    And how did SM3 screw up what Venom was "all about"?
