Spiderman 3 villain slip of the lip?

venom Spiderman 3 villain slip of the lip?Ok, so you already know that Thomas Hayden Church has been cast as a villain in Spiderman 3… but which villain? Now that is the question.

The following may be either an “oops” moment during an interview, or just misdirection, but the thing is that it actually makes sense.

Tim Phoenix is a special effects guy who did work on Spiderman 2, and is currently working on Where the Wild Things Are, and the Pirates of the Caribbean sequel. During an interview with a local paper in which he talked about how fortunate he feels with all the big projects he’s been fortunate to be involved in he apparently let slip that he was working on conceptual designs for the upcoming Spidey flick.

What designs?


Man-Wolf and Venom.

Now here’s the thing… the previous two films have featured (thankfully!) just one villain each, so two villains would not seem to fit the mold of the first two films. However… Venom is a completely logical choice for a villain in this third film. Fans have been clamoring for it and personally, I think it would rock.

For now file this as “65% internet rumour”, but man, it sounds good, don’t it?

  1. We could also be looking at a third villain, since the second film made it clear that the Green Goblin legacy was going to continue.

  2. Yeah, they did leave it open for Hobgoblin, but I’m hoping they leave that one be… maybe for a fourth film. I’d love to see a well done Venom as the villain.

    Of course he is one creepy looking dude, so it would be a high wire act to keep it PG-13 while still making the character scary and effective.

  3. iS VENOM REALLY THE VILLAIN FOR SPIDERMAN 3. :twisted: :P

  4. Jeff, it seems that particular rumour is probably been quashed. If you look at the Related Posts above you’ll see a, uh, related post. :P

  5. Thomas Hayden Church will play Eddie Brock( aka, venom). J.Jonah Jameson’s son will take a trip to space where he brings back the suit to earth. Eddie Brock is working for the Bugle untill Peter Parker writes a story exposing Brock as a fraud journalist. Eddie leaves the Daily Bugle in shame, and ends up at a nearby Church.. Where he encounters the symbiot suit that will eventually bond with him to become Venom..

  6. Peter,

    Where are you getting your information? It’s been pretty well established that Church is in fact playing The Sandman and not Venom.

  7. sandman is definetly not going to be the villain in spiderman 3.neither is the chameleon. there are lots of reasons why i think so. so many people wouldnt like spiderman 3 if sandman or chameleon would be in it because first of all, both of them are boring and unpopular villains. second of all, venom is probably the coolest most popular and dangerous villain ever in the whole spiderman series and hundreds and hundreds of people would agree with me. the story would be alot better too if it was about eddie brock and the symbiote costume and how he turns into venom. and anotherthing is you know how they came out with a couple of those spiderman animated series videos after the movies were made? like after spiderman was made with the green goblin, they came out with the animated video with the green goblin. then after spiderman 2with dock ock was made, they made an animated spiderman video with dockock in it. now they have an animated video with venom in it. also carnage. so that means they would have to make a spiderman 3 with venom and carnage in it. if they were to have sandman or chameleon in spiderman 3 then they probably would of made an animated video of sandman or chameleon. and they also said that thomas haden church has been working out and beefing up every day just to play this villain. i dont think they would have the poor guy do that every day just to play the chameleon. i mean come on the chameleon is a wimp and hes not really a fighter he just morphs into other people. and why would he have to work out every day just to play sandman because the sandman is just a living sandman. his whole body is just made of sand so i wouldnt see why he has to work out every day just to becomea sandman. one more thing, thomas haden church would be a really good eddie brock/venom if he works out enough and topher grace would make a perfect cletus kasady/carnage if he grows his hair out and dyes it red… well thats it

  8. By the way my name is luke. Not ritch. i just felt like putting in a different name. :D

  9. Quite an in-depth analysis you’ve got there… whether it turns out to be correct is another matter. :D

    Vic

  10. thanks vic :-) sooo does anybody else like my analysis? just wundering

  11. Luke, as you’ve probably heard the latest rumour is that Venom will be in the movie along with Electro and either the Hobgoblin or Green Goblin (I forget which).

    Unfortunately there’s been no confirmation so it’s all speculation.

    I have heard that Raimi prefers the classic villains and that Venom will probably not be in the film… but who knows?

    Vic

  12. well ya i suess ur rite.. well find out who the villians actually are pretty soon but i really hope that venom is in it

    Luke

  13. You guys know how Venom always sticks his tongue out, swings it around in the air with alien saliva flying everywhere, right? Well, if Venom were small, happy, and yellow, this is what he’d look like:
    :P

  14. OK????

  15. I just found out 2 days ago that topher grace will be venom and thomas haden church will be sandman! it said on the news and they were having an interview with kirsten dunst and she said “maybe i shouldnt of said that” this is cool and it is not a rumor :D :wink:

    Luke

  16. Yeah, that’s the most concrete evidence I’ve heard so far.

    Vic

  17. i wonder how they r gonna make the movie…it will possibly be 3 hours long cuz they havta hav the origin of eddie brock/venom and sandman and all the fighting and wut happens at the end n stuff

  18. Luke, good point. Raimi certainly hasn’t skimped on character origin in the past so it seems like a lot to cram two villains into the film and do them justice. (no pun) :P

    Vic

  19. Hey, I know this has nothing to do with what you guys are talking about but i have a question that needs answering… The SIMS for xbox, does anybody know how I get promoted to career level 4 on the military career because i already have enough charisma, body, and mech and I havent even been promoted again in a long time and it’s starting to get annoying… so can someone help? :D

  20. Sorry, dude… I know NOTHING about that kind of stuff. :shock:

    Vic

  21. Now Vic, just because you actually have a life doesn’t mean you should flaunt it, okay? :P

    Brian

  22. easy people it was just a question

  23. sup my name is Gustav….Just trying to make a conversation… spiderman 1 and 2 and The GODFATHER are all three really good movies. Which movie do you think is better? anyone. i cant figure out which one is better.. Both grade “A” movies.. What do YOU think.. just wondering.

  24. Albert,

    I hope you didn’t take offense at my post. I just honestly don’t know anything about the vid game side of things.

    Vic

  25. Gustav,

    Really, you’re talking apples and oranges. If you want to put them on a level playing field, there’s no question whatsoever that “The Godfather” blows away Spidey. :-)

    Vic

  26. oh dont worry I didnt it’s ok vic

  27. Hey everybody, this is Bryce Dallas Howard and I will be cast as Gwen Stacey in Spiderman 3. I enjoy surfing the net and I saw this site and it seems to me like all of you are really into spiderman 3 so if you have any questions, just ask me. :wink:

  28. Bryce,

    Give a link to a blog that belongs to you and verifies your email address. Pardon my skepticism, but hey, you know how it is.

    Besides, you “will” be cast as Gwen Stacey? Shouldn’t that be you are currently playing her since the film is in production? 8)

    Vic

  29. I do not have any blogs. I do nor want to give out my email address. I meant that i am currently playing her… HA HA JUST KIDDING THIS WAS GUSTAV ALL ALONG! JUST WANTED TO SEE IF ANYONE WOULD FALL FOR IT HAHAHA :twisted:
