Not surprising at all given that Venom is the fan favourite from the Spiderman universe and that to do the sinister Six any kind of justice, you'd need an entire movie devoted just to them. But, I fail to see how either could work as a spin off given that you'd need Spiderman to make them work.



I agree, a film solely about a group of villains surely needs a hero for audiences to get behind, otherwise we'll just be watching bad guys doing evil stuff...it worked for Tony Montana, but for comic book villains? I don't see it working without Spidey.

Venom could work well on his own If they went the Anti-hero route with him. But you'd still need it to be tied into Spidey for it to work well. If we have a Spidey film featuring the full symbiote cycle etc. rather then just the cheap lip-service bit we got with it in the original Spidey 3, a spin-off could be handled and done really well. I could see it leading to something of a Venom vs Carnage bit perhaps.

I hope they don't just start throwing money at these films. The Spider-Man sequel already looks like effects overkill with Electro barely more than a special effect rather than a character. I had hoped that Dredd would be more successful, in the hope that it would change the current trend for comic book films getting more and more expensive. I felt the lean 40m budget meant we got a solid character-based thriller with emphasis on intelligent direction and imaginative camera work. I'd rather have a series of smaller films with compelling stories than hours of green screen work. The first Amazing Spidey suffered due to overuse of the Lizard (and his poor conception, IMO (phantom mass!)), when Ifans had enough presence and pathos to engage the audience.

So I hope they do these films smaller, 100m each at most. Maybe even a mini series of one shots. Either way, I hope the market can take it.

I'm kind of stunned by the lack of imagination from the nay-sayers in this thread.

This has potential to be a lot of fun. Has a comic book villain ever had a solo film before?

The first Garfield spider-man movie was average at best and this looks to be several shades of lame. i mean come on they've turned electro into a dude that can turn into electricity and travel by sockets. And god forbid am i not seeing the whole picture but is the rhino some dude in a four legged tank. Christ no doubt this will make buckets of cash but it already looks shite.



You do realise that in the comics Electro can turn into electricity and travel via wire? And as for Rhino... His powers were always from his special suit. They've just decided to go the mechanical mecha route rather then the skin bonded special fabrics etc.

Grizbe is right. A more 'organic' suit for Rhino would just be a visual retread of what we've already seen with Lizard.

Also, there is precedent for Rhino's suit being a mecha in the Ultimate Spider-Man comics.

That too. Its a military hardware armor suit known as R.H.I.N.O.. And Marvel does seem to be using the Ultimate universe more then the classic for its movies lately.... Yes, different studios and ownerships etc. But still.

If I was a producer, I would would say F*** NO to the idea. It just sounds stupid from the start. And what if the project falls into the wrong hands, like Brett Ratner or an unknown Michael Bay Wannabe. hopefully, Sony well handle the villains with care. all I can do is cross my fingers.
