    How in the world can you have a Venom movie without Spider-man in it??? This sounds like a bad idea to me, but maybe they'll prove me wrong. :nono2:

    They had Venom comics without Spider-Man in them...

    Personally, I never got it. They even tried (in the comics) to turn Venom into some kind of vigilante hero for a bit... It'd be like if Manson was let out of prison and allowed to patrol the streets doling out vigilante justice. Insane!

    I just don't see the point of doing this movie.

    From Variety:

    Currently rewriting a Spider-Man 4 script for Columbia Pictures,Gary Ross is taking over the Venom project.

    Ross will rewrite to direct the film.

    Marvel Entertainment,Avi Arad and Ross will produce.

    Topher Grace,who just signed on to star in Predators at Fox,is not considered a shoo-in to reprise the role,as the spinoff will start from the drawing board.
