    Venom

    Sony is looking for new writers to kick off a Venom franchise.

    They also seem a little concerned that Topher Grace couldn't carry the franchise on his own, so they're looking to recast.

    Can't say I disagree with them there.

    I was actually just reading about Matt Damon and he’s like, ‘There’s a culture of outrage.’ I’m like, ‘Well, they have a reason to be outraged.’ I think it’s a lot of dudes just being scared. They’re like, ‘What if I did something and I didn’t realize it?’ I’m like, ‘Deal with it.’

    A venom franchise would suck but it's a shame the character didn't really get his due in the trilogy.

    I've never been a big fan of Venom, nor do I really think of him as that cool of a villain. *Shrug*

    Why would a Vendom franchise suck?? What if they wrote Punisher into the series too? I loved those issues.

    I dunno what would he do? I just don't see a villian heading a franchise... or would it be post evil Venom when he becomes a little bit of an anti-hero and Carnage and co. are the real baddies?

    They should have Carnage be Venom's adversary and then have Rob Zombie direct.

    ...Or not. Like I give a shit...

    Bad idea. A good Spiderman movie with Venom would've been a good idea.

    Better question than why a Venom franchise would suck: Why would a Venom franchise be good?

    Gary Ross is writing “Venom,” Columbia’s “Spider-Man” spinoff based on one of the villains from “Spider-Man 3,” as a potential directing vehicle. Ross is already writing “Spider-Man 4” for the studio.

    Heh. Yeah, I actually didn't forget... I just totally didn't realize the comment was made way back when. I don't always attend to the dates of every post I come across.

    I wonder where he went.

    I think Jackie Earle Haley was born to play Carnage. Just a thought.

    At least at this point, Remender has adequately demonstrated the potential of a decent Venom-centric franchise.

    Speaking of Remender, I hear many people lauding his "Uncanny X-Force" stuff, and a few saying it's absolute shite.

    Any thoughts on it, Sven? I find your input on comics pretty invaluable.

    Venom

    Hi. I just wanted to my own thread about a movie that never happened.

    (What? Everyone else has one!)

    This thread is also about the glories of Wafflebot.

    Could be a decent change-up to have a character start out as an anti-hero in his own movie, and then become a villain in another movie's sequel. Never been done before, right?
