Sony considers “Venom” spinoff

by Matthew Price Published: July 31, 2008

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Sony is eyeing a potential “Venom” film, though perhaps without Topher Grace, who played the character in “Spider-Man 3.”

I don’t really think this is the way to go — how do you sell a Venom movie without Spider-Man? I mean, the T-shirts would be cool, but what’s the story? Venom has always worked best in the comics in opposition to Spider-Man.  I’m not sure how well he works off by himself.  And if he IS off by himself, do you make him an anti-hero (like in “Lethal Protector”)?   Do you make him a bad guy, and just figure the audience will stick with you? 

I’d rather see a Spider-Woman movie, if we’re spinning things off.
