Will the upcoming Venom movie tie into The Amazing Spider-Man? I would almost have to, wouldn’t it? Spider-Man and Venom occupy the same universe, their story lines cross over and Sony has the film rights for both characters; so it just makes sense, right?
Producers Avi Arad and Matthew Tolmach seem to agree, and said as much in a recent interview:
“What I’m trying to say to you without giving anything away is hopefully all these worlds will live together in peace someday.
“It’s an Eddie Brock story. We want to be as close to the comics as possible. Especially in Eddie Brock’s story. But again, pseudo-sceince is becoming science. All these tidbits about webs, artificial webs, is a huge industry now. Spiderwebs have unique qualities that will be huge for communications, fibers, and so forth. So we have taken the approach that we want to make the huge amazing movie about Eddie.
“He was a journalist. He had the wrong story, he got in trouble for it, he got fired. The whole essence to us for the Marvel characters. Stay close to the bible, stay close to the emotional story, and the rest is fun.”
I wouldn’t mind a Venom film, as long as it’s better than the last time we saw him on screen. Fortunately Spider-Man 3 didn’t set the bar too high, so it shouldn’t be tough to improve on the character.
