Kurtzman Discusses Choosing the Right Incarnation for Venom Spin-Off Film


With the announcement that Sony will be launching a new movie franchise off of Spider-Man, one that focuses on his on-again/off-again nemesis Venom, one of the chief concerns that fans have is “which one?”

The Venom character, which started out as an alien symbiote suit that Peter Parker brought home from space and eventually found it’s own host after a falling out with Peter (because it tried to take over. You already know the story), found its way in the hands of several owners and spawned other symbiote suits. Eddie Brock is arguably the most popular one, but the other incarnations – including Flash Thompson and Mac Gargan (The Scorpion) are also favored by some people.

In an interview with CBR’s Spin-Off Online, Alex Kurtzman discussed the challenges involved in choosing the right one, though he failed to mention exactly which one they went with:

“I would not say [picking the incarnation of Venom is] an easy choice,” begins Kurtzman. “I would say that there are quite a few things about Venom that are interesting.”

“Venom had several different iterations, and there are several things that are very unique, interesting and specific. And so I think we all want to make sure that we’re making the right choices for a character that’s so beloved.”

“Before last Friday came out, we started kind of roughing out a story,” he continues. “Ed Solomon’s going to be writing it very soon. I can’t tell you too much, but I’m really excited about it.”
