Amazing Spider-Man Producers Talk VENOM
The Amazing Spider-Man isn’t out yet, but it is getting good reaction via the Twitterverse from early screenings. While we still have to wait to see the web slingler, we already have some idea of how that world could get bigger. Producers Avi Arad and Matthew Tolmach spoke with Hollywood.com about the Venom movie that is in the works with Chronicle director Josh Trank rumored to be on board.
What I’m trying to say to you without giving anything away is hopefully all these worlds will live together in peace someday.
We also learned that the film will have no ties to Spider-Man 3’s version of Venom, and will instead go with The Amazing Spider-Man’s modern, realistic approach according to Arad. There will be a more scientific side to Venom’s story.
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 esscene to us for the Marvel characters. Stay close to the bible, stay close to the emotional story, the rest is fun.
The worlds will have some strands of connection according to Tolmach. We should look for the two worlds to “make sense with one another.” If you’re a Venom fan, you probably weren’t too happy with the Spider-Man 3 version so this may be what you’re looking for. From some of the quotes and all prior experience with superhero movies, you can expect changes to be made to the character. Josh Trank did a fantastic job with Chronicle and his rumored involvement with this film is a plus in my eyes. What’s your take on this Eddie Brock news?
