The guys at Nerd Bastards spotted a striking similarity between a picture (above) tweeted by director Marc Webb and a panel from the Ultimate Spider-man comic that sees the introduction of… Venom!
And we must admit, we can see where they’re coming from and why else would Webb tweet a seemingly random picture of a door?
According to the guys at NB: ‘This is a scene from the Ultimate Spidey storyline that introduced Venom into the Ultimate universe. The back story there was that Peter Parker and Eddie Brock’s fathers were experimenting on a cancer cure, a black goo substance that enveloped the patient in order to treat them. The experiment, instead, was successful in creating Venom, a symbiotic life-form that has to feed on organic tissue to survive.’
We at FTN have a serious soft spot for The Amazing Spider-man and personally I believe characters like Venow could exist easier in the new movie universe than in the Raimi series – less said about THAT Venom the better, right? – but we can’t help feeling that this may be the set-up for the third movie. An end of credits hint? Or a subtle background reference? Or are we wrong an will Venom be full on? We’re looking forward to finding out.
Amazing Spider-man 2 is released on April 18, 2014
