    I think Venom would be cool as a B-Movie horror flick. Nothing too fancy but something exciting and purposely cheesy to make it fun.

    "distinct from Spider-Man 3" and Topher Grace "not expected to reprise his role"


    Already, I have high hopes for this. You know, besides the already high hopes I had for a Venom movie.

    This will suck if it has any connections to the Raimi films, but that's entirely unlikely.

    I AM EXCITE.

    I wonder how they will pull it off? I mean if it's connected to the rebooted Spiderman franchise shoudln't they make a stroy about the Black Spiderman first before they make Venom? His origin is connected to Spiderman's for a reason.

    It will probably turn up something like Ghost Rider 2: Cheesy B-movie with lots of Hamtastic stuff, but fun.

    Well, we don't know when this will be ready, so it is possible that it will come out after a second Spider-Man movie, where they introduce the symbiote.

    Or they could always go with an origin based more on the Ultimate series, where it doesn't really have any connections to Spidey. I mean, yeah, the suit has a lot to do with Peter himself, but it didn't really have any of Spidey's powers. While I would say that an origin closer to Spidey would be better, a lot of Venom's abilities don't really need to be connected to Spider-Man's powers.

    I hope it happens. Venom's one of my favorite Marvel characters and I was disappointed with him for the most part in Spider-man 3.

    I'm glad to see that there's still a chance of this movie happening. Hopefully it makes it all the way and does get made. Especially if they bring in some of the other symbiotes.

    This would be better as an animated movie. Venom Origins. Make it dark and edgy. I think a live action would work, but do enough regular people know who Venom is? And would Andrew Garfield make an appearance? Be kind of hard to have Venom without Spidey.

    I may be a bit biased, since Venom has been my favorite Marvel villain since the 90s cartoon, but I would put Venom up there with Green Goblin and Doc Ock in terms of being "mainstream". Frankly, I think more casual fans would recognize Venom than the Lizard or Sandman.

    As for meeting up with Spidey, that's pretty much inevitable, but I'm not certain if it would happen right away. It is hard to have Venom without Spidey, but it isn't impossible.

    I'd only get excited for this if they use flash thompson instead of eddie brock, me personally I find he has the better story arc and just overall characterzation than eddie.

    personally I would like to see it as a continuation without spidey- we've established eddie brock and venom, but make it like what happened to eddie in the comics. He gets cancer from having the suit for so long that he has to break his ties to it and dealing with the withdrawl (akin to quitting drugs). Then scorpion takes the suit and becomes the new venom and it makes eddie want it back. Could be pretty cool IMO

    Yeah that would be cool.
