ASM Producers Talk Venom Movie
While I was able to retweet this news and post a quick link to the Reddit forums, I didn't have time to create an actual post - until now.  It seems as though the much anticipated, but hardly talked about Venom Movie is still moving forward.  Hollywood.com posted the following yesterday:
While promoting Spider-Man, Arad and Tolmach alluded that their next project, Venom would be developed in a similar fashion that could potentially tie the films together. "What I'm trying to say to you without giving anything away is hopefully all these worlds will live together in peace someday," hinted Tolmach. Venom , which Chronicle director Josh Trank is rumored to helm, will follow Eddie Brock, a character previously introduced in Spider-Man 3. Don't expect any carryover, as Venom will be following Amazing Spider-Man's modern, realistic approach. "It's an Eddie Brock story," explained Arad. "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." Commitment to reality and tangibility is a key factor to Amazing Spider-Man. From Arad's description, the scientific slant will be a point of interest in Venom. Tolmach and Arad insisted their Eddie Brock, who was drawn in early incarnations as a muscled man, would be more grounded. "He was a journalist. He had the wrong story, he got in trouble for it, he got fired," explains Tolmach, who also went on to describe his and Arad's approach to adapting Marvel properties. "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." When Venom eventually hits theaters, expect it to feel intrinsically connected to July's Amazing Spider-Man. As Tolmach puts it: "Look for the worlds to make sense with one another."

My thought was to have the next Amazing Spider-Man movie focus on Peter getting the symbiote, his struggles with it, and his disposal of it (similar to the church scene in Spider-Man 3 - the best part of that movie).  The final scene after the credits would be Eddie getting the symbiote. This would setup Venom's stand alone movie and possibly his inclusion in ASM3.

What would you like to see in the Venom Movie?
