Ultimate Spider-man cartoon staff talk about Venom's identity, Eddie Brock, and the Goblins

Show writers "Man of Action" and vice president of Animation development at Marvel, talk about Venom's identity in the show as well as when to expect Eddie Brock and he Green Goblin.


Talking to IGN about Yesterday's Ultimate Spider-man Episode "Back in Black" (Reviewed here) The show main writers Man OF Action (Joe Kelly, Duncan Rouleau, Joe Casey and Stenven T. Seagal) Revealed that it was their idea to make this series Venom the alter ego of Harry Osborn instead of Eddie Brock.

Man of Action: “The pages were all still blank and we were in ‘anything goes mode.’ We proposed Harry. Marvel liked it and we ran with it.”

Cort Lane, who is the Vice President of Animation Development & Production at Marvel Animation, reveals to IGN that there are currently no plans to include Eddie Brock, the reala Venom from the comics and other tv series.

Cort Lane: “Nothing is planned for Eddie Brock so far, but there are a lot of Spidey characters (like Eddie) that we want to explore in the series so he may very well appear in future seasons.”

Switching gears to The Green Goblin, Spider-man's deadliest foe and also the alter ego of Normn Osborn, Lane had this to say: “The fans will have to be patient to see Norman’s eventual transformation to full-fledged villain. Pay close attention to his relationship to Doc Ock, because that will undergo some serious twists and turns as Otto comes into his own as a villain. The Ock and Venom storylines will set up what the fans are waiting for from Norman.”
