|Marc Webb is a lot less reliable than Venom's webbing pictured above when it comes to telling coherent Spidey stories!|
Rumors began flying from the set of The Amazing Spiderman 2 recently, that another iconic Spidey villain could be joining the already crowded cast of baddies. Apparently speculation has led many to be believe that none other than Venom will join Electro (Jamie Foxx) and Rhino (Paul Giamatti) as one of the villains in the Marc Webb Sequel.
The fact that Venom could appear on the film isn't even the most interesting thing about the current speculation, but rather what character will play him. At this point it looks like it will be none other than Harry Osborn who will be portrayed by Dane Dehann of Chronicle fame. When I first heard the rumor a couple things come to mind. 1. Remember how bad ass Dehann was as a baddie in Chronicle? I bet he could play pretty imposing Venom, and 2. Why is Harry Osborn Venom, and not Eddie Brock? The idea of Harry Osborn as Venom has been pissing Spidey fans off ever since last year’s so called "Ultimate" Spiderman carton on Disney XD. The dynamic between Peter Parker and Eddie Brock is something that spins into the Venom character so well, which is basically Jealousy reincarnate. Whereas the dynamic between Pete and his best friend Harry Osborn and his eventual turn to the Green Goblin is built on betrayal based on Harry's father Norman Osborn’s death by Spiderman. If the themes fit these characters so well, why does Webb feel the need to meddle to the point of possible failure at the character level?
|Let's just hope Marc Webb's attempt to make Harry Venom doesn't fail as terribly as it did in Disney's Ultimate Spiderman cartoon!|
|Surely Sony's latest attempt at Venom will end up better than this?!|
