Three men (not including original host Peter Parker) have worn the symbiote for any serious amount of time over the years; Eddie Brock, Mac Gargan and Flash Thompson. Which of them would you like to see in Alex Kurtzman and Sony's planned spin-off? Here's your chance to let us know!

Eddie Brock was the first man to wear the Venom symbiote after Spider-Man managed to separate himself from the alien with the use of church bells. Both Eddie and the costume were desperate for revenge and have made the life of Peter Parker a living hell over the years, although they did at one point come to a truce when battling Carnage and in Venom's role as a "Lethal Protector" and vigilante. Eddie eventually rejected the symbiote, selling it auction to the highest bidder...


That bidder wasn't Mac Gargan, but the man once known as the Scorpion did eventually bond with the symbiote. However, the weak minded former P.I. pretty much lost all control of Venom, becoming a cannibalistic hulking monster in the process. He worked closely with Norman Osborn during this time, both in The Thundrbolts and as a member of The Dark Avengers. Ultimately however, he was forcibly separated from the symbiote after being taken into custody by S.H.I.E.L.D.


After separating Mac Gargan from the symbiote, the US government decided to bond Venom with one of their soldiers. In this case, it was Peter Parker's former bully turned close friend and war hero Flash Thompson who volunteered, giving him back his legs in the process. As Agent Venom, he's fought for the government and alongside The Secret Avengers, struggling to keep the alien under his control in the process. The government does however have a "kill switch" to take him out!

So, know you've refreshed yourselves on each iteration of Venom, which of them would you like to see Alex Kurtzman bring to the big screen? Here's your chance to let us know!

MacFarlane Venom
CaptainAmerica31 - 12/15/2013, 1:42 PM
Eddie will more than likely be the first host, they could do sequels with agent venom after Brock
CaptainAmerica31 - 12/15/2013, 1:42 PM
@B&Y yea
CherryBomb - 12/15/2013, 1:42 PM
Hmm I can see them introducing Eddie Brock and having him star in the movie.
Although Flash is already established so they could go with him.
Spidey10 - 12/15/2013, 1:45 PM
in a perfect world but I know its not but Daniel Craig would be the perfect Eddie Brock
Spidey10 - 12/15/2013, 1:45 PM
The Right Age Build look hed be the perfect Eddie Brock
CaptainAmerica31 - 12/15/2013, 1:49 PM
The reason I'm certain is because before they announced the movie a article from Eddie Brock was released
JossWeedOnMe - 12/15/2013, 1:50 PM
Idris Elba
DrDoom - 12/15/2013, 1:50 PM
Brock is the only true Venom
DarthOptimus - 12/15/2013, 1:53 PM
Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, since they didn't give him the Venom for Bane, let's just make him the Venom.
ds9epicfan - 12/15/2013, 1:54 PM
Eddie Brock if you stick to the comic book origin but Hollywood will do their own version regardless of the fans expectations!!
GizmoEl - 12/15/2013, 1:54 PM
Definitely Eddie Brock.
MrCBM56 - 12/15/2013, 1:55 PM
Flash Venom.
Spidey10 - 12/15/2013, 2:01 PM

JoJo1982 - 12/15/2013, 2:02 PM

JoJo1982 - 12/15/2013, 2:04 PM
Tom hardy could pull it off

If not him then Kellan Lutz, he got douchebag look to him, plus he's pretty built guy already
NovaCorpsFan - 12/15/2013, 2:10 PM

Any option besides eddie brock is made for dumb[frick]s


N damn i wish brocklesner could act :(
AstroZombie - 12/15/2013, 3:09 PM
Brock or GTFO!
ShadowTheIronKnight - 12/15/2013, 3:09 PM
If you are a true venom and you're better say Eddie Brock & NO ONE ELSE
Jollem - 12/15/2013, 3:14 PM
eddie first
beane2099 - 12/15/2013, 3:16 PM
Definitely Brock. That's a no-brainer (or so I would have thought). If this was the 80's I'd have said Roddy Piper would be the perfect Eddie Brock. Now I say give it to a newbie. Or if you want to be comical have Brock Lesnar play Eddie Brock just you can make posters that say "Brock is Brock". I'm kidding. That'd be a terrible idea.
JoJo1982 - 12/15/2013, 3:17 PM
Eddie Brock for venom in Spiderman movie and spinoff movie

Do flash Thompson venom in a venom sequel
Optimus83 - 12/15/2013, 3:18 PM


Alan Ritchson as Venom/Eddie Brock. ...
theowl - 12/15/2013, 3:25 PM
No one on this site is going to get satisfied. This will not end well...
GizmoEl - 12/15/2013, 3:25 PM
They'd need to show us Flash enlisting in the army in TASM 2 (which I think they will during the graduation scenes) to properly set up Agent Venom. I think it can definitely happen in the future, but the first host needs to be Eddie Brock.
NovaCorpsFan - 12/15/2013, 3:26 PM
Alan Ritchson needs to distance himself from the douchebag roles.
NinjaKickTheDamnRabbit - 12/15/2013, 3:26 PM
Ryan Kwanten for Eddie Brock
