'new' ultimate venom coming

A New Ultimate Venom?
A couple hours ago, CBR interviewed Ultimate Spider-Man writer Brian Bendis about where Mile Morales would be heading in future issues.  Among these teasers was the confirmation that Ultimate Venom would return, but what was revealed in today's Marvel interview with him is that it might not be Eddie Brock:
After that, starting in our very cool ULTIMATE COMICS SPIDER-MAN #16.1, an issue that David Marquez is drawing, we’re going to be introduced to a brand new Ultimate Venom. That’ll lead into issue #19 which will be the return of [artist] Sara Pichelli to ULTIMATE COMICS SPIDER-MAN and it’ll be a big Miles vs. the Symbiote issue. The first very big Spider-Man villain that Miles has had to deal with.
How do you feel about Eddie Brock Jr. getting the same treatment as his 616 counterpart and no longer being Venom?  Would rebooting Ultimate Venom get you more excited about this universe?
