    You're thinking about it too much. Deadpool made money with an R-rating and Sony is throwing anything they can at the wall hoping something sticks.

    I would give them props if Venom ended up being the superhero equivalent of a slasher flick with titties and gore though.

    Venom isn't a character. This is like Iron Man's suit getting its own spin off unrelated to Tony Stark.

    Venom standalone seems very random to me. I want to see Venom and Spider-man face off. What's amazing
    lol there was also talk back in like 2012 that Bale was being courted to be in Batman vs. Superman but it would not be part of the continuity of Nolan Dark Knight movies. So, basically- hire Bale to play Bruce Wayne/Batman but not the Bruce Wayne/Batman he previously played. It was mind-bogglingly ridiculous.

    Spider-Man is Peter Parker, thats why that character is awesome. Iron Man is Tony Stark, which is why Iron Man is awesome. There is nothing interesting about Eddie Brock, let alone somebody SONY creates out of nowhere.

    The struggle he has with his humanity and the symbiote

    Could be a pretty dark movie in a similar fashion as spawn or the crow

    I can dig it. I think you guys just need more of an open mind before shitting on this idea

    SONY hasn't earned that kind of trust.

    Was it? Lol- I bought it when I heard it. Knowing it's an April Fool's joke, I assume they made the choice of Efron for Maximum Rustle-age but all I could think of when I heard it was, well it's an improvement over Topher.

    I really want him for Eddie Brock. I think it's a perfect vehicle for him to make the transition into leading man, while playing against his former "good boy" looks and embracing a new level of "jock bully with a heart of gold."

    He could be the lead Chris Pine should have been by now.

    young Efran would be have been a perfect iceman, but he's too old for that role now (and iceman is lame).
