|I'm hoping for something like this- Ultimate Comics Venom.|
Currently, the one-time Spider-Man villain turned anti-hero Venom is supposedly being penned by Dante Harper as the beginning of a new and separate franchise from everybody's favorite friendly neighborhood hero's. This might be a good thing, as Harper assisted the screenplay rewrite for the film Edge of Tomorrow. Outside of the forced happy ending that movie was pretty damned good.
We currently have no real idea which Venom we'll be seeing, though odds are on it being Flash Thompson. He was a long-time bully of poor Parker, but he changed his ways and went on to be friends with him. Serving as the host of the alien symbiote, given to him by the government and adding enough power to go about heroic activities.
Granted, it could be about the lethal protector Venom, with Eddie Brock as the host, who had a lasting hatred for Spider-Man and an odd affinity for protecting "innocents," though his idea of innocent could be a little vague at times. That would make an excellent darker film. Though not nearly as dark as a Mac Gargan Venom would be. Gargan went from being the villain Scorpion to being a very villainous hero Venom on the Thunderbolts team. The Thunderbolts had a very grim idea of heroism during his time.
Hopefully they've learned that people don't want more teen-angst driven garbage as the last couple Amazing Spider-Man films have been. It doesn't have to be R rated, but it certainly needs to be a more mature film in terms of substance.
I mean, really, it can't be nearly as terrible as Spider-Man 3's Topher Grace Venom right?
