VENOM Will Feature Eddie Brock; May Not Be Set In THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Universe
Avi Arad and Matthew Tolmach have offered fans an update on Sony's Venom spin-off, confirming that it will feature Eddie Brock as the host of the symbiote, but may not be set in the same universe as Spider-Man's latest solo film even though they will "make sense with one another."
Talking to Hollywood.com, The Amazing Spider-Man producers Avi Arad and Matthew Tolmach have revealed that while there may be connections between that and the Venom spin-off, they won't necessarily share the same world. "Look for the worlds to make sense with one another," teases Tolmach. "What I'm trying to say to you without giving anything away is hopefully all these worlds will live together in peace someday." So, it sounds like there MIGHT be a chance of the two characters crossing paths, although it surely won't make sense unless the villain is first introduced in a Spider-Man sequel. The site adds that it will not have any links to the version of Eddie Brock introduced in Spider-Man 3.
"It's an Eddie Brock story," said Arad. "We want to be as close to the comics as possible. Especially in Eddie Brock's story. But again, pseudo-sceince is becoming science. All these tidbits about webs, artificial webs, is a huge industry now. Spiderwebs have unique qualities that will be huge for communications, fibers, and so forth. So we have taken the approach that we want to make the huge amazing movie about Eddie." Tolmach adds, "He was a journalist. He had the wrong story, he got in trouble for it, he got fired. The whole essence to us for the Marvel characters. Stay close to the bible, stay close to the emotional story, and the rest is fun."
