After the premiere of ‘The Amazing Spider-Man this week, the producers of the movie were cornered by the media about the possibility of Venom making another appearance in the franchise after his rather weak appearance in ‘Spider-Man 3’.
Avi Arad commented on the character, saying: “The reason you didn’t see more development on Venom in the comics is because this power that he was given, he knew who Peter was, he knew who Spider-Man was, so go kill him already. We always struggle with storylines and you see the new Venom books.”
However, Arad claims that all in all, he is basically a good guy: “As you know, Venom is defender of the innocent,” he continued. “The only guy he really, really hates is Peter Parker, Spider-Man.”
So does this mean we can look forward to seeing more of Venom? Perhaps his own movie? “The truth is he also deserves his own movie,” Matthew Tolmach said. “We’ve been sitting around in a room talking about Venom stories and it’s a really full bodied complicated character…”
Questions were also asked about the possibility of Spider-Man himself being involved in an ‘Avengers’ sequel. The producers confirmed nothing, but admitted that it was something they had considered and think that it would be a great idea for both Disney and Sony. However, they said for now they would be looking into Venom, which would occur separately from any future avenging.
