THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Screenwriters Are Big Fans Of Venom
"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" screenwriters Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci about whether they've met with Sony to discuss the character appearing in Marc Webb's Spider-Man franchise or in a solo feature film.
While attending the recent Television Critics Association media event "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" screenwriters Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci were there to promote their new Fox television drama, "Sleepy Hollow" but they also discussed the upcoming Spider-Man sequel with IGN. Specifically, the duo addressed the possibility of other Spider-Man axillary superheroes appearing in the film series, a rumor that was sparked by recent talk from the movie's producers. Orci would only share when asked about a certain Spider-Man nemesis that, "We're fans of Venom." Kurtzman added, "Venom is an amazing character. Venom is a brilliant character. Part of what's interesting about Venom is that Venom can do all of the things that Spider-Man can't do, in a lot of ways. And I don't know, I guess that's why I respond to him."
The duo evaded questions about whether they've had specific discussions with Sony about tackling the character, which certainly isn't confirmation but is a little telling. Sony did snag director Josh Trank (Chronicle, Fantastic Four) to direct their Venom movie but no further information on the project has surfaced since that info hit the newswire last year.
Various individuals associated with the project continue to provide cryptic hints that the Sony Spider-Man Universe could very well include other heroes, something I proposed a while back that you guys, the fans, did not seem to be in favor of...at all.
