Venom

Venom Venom is a fictional extraterrestrial life form appearing in Marvel Comics. The creature is a sentient alien Symbiote, with a gooey, almost liquid-like form, and requires a host to bond with for its survival. In return the Venom creature gives its host enhanced powers the most obvious of which are modelled after its first host (Spider-Man). Venom's first appearance in a motion picture was originally planned for a titular film written by David S. Goyer and produced by New Line Cinema, in which Venom would have been portrayed as an antihero and Carnage as the antagonist. Goyer said in an interview the film rights to Venom ultimately reverted to Sony. Venom appears as one of the main antagonists in the 2007 feature film Spider-Man 3, played by Topher Grace. In July 2007, Avi Arad revealed a spin-off was in the works. In September 2008, Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese signed on to write, while Gary Ross will direct. Variety reported that Venom will become an anti-hero, and Marvel Entertainment will produce the film. With the aquisition of Marvel by Disney and the decision to reboot the Spider-Man franchise, plans for Venom have been on hold.
