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. By the way.. Come to my restaurant called Gustav’s Grill. Im sure many of you have heard of it..

  2. What is up everyone? To those of you that dont know about it.. The spiderman 3 teaser trailer will be attached to Superman returns! Pretty cool. Im going to see Superman just to see the trailer

  3. Wow, seeing Superman Returns JUST for the Spidey trailer? Personally any Spidey trailer will just be a bonus as I’m really looking forward to SR.


  4. Spiderman 3 is going to have venom but spiderman turns into venom. if you read the comics venom was 1 of spidermans costumes then that other guy( i forgot what his name was)got it. in the movie there is a black slime stuff and when peter is sleeping it goes on to his costume and now the costume is black. but peter doesnt know it is black. in one scene he is hanging upside down from a building looking into a window and u see his costume black but he sees it as the regular costume… And they are having sandman as the villian. they are not doing anything with harry and the green goblin yet.

  5. sorry i forgot to mension this in my last comment but J. Jonah Jamesons son takes a trip to space and brings the black slime to earth

  6. I read that Harry Potter kills spiderman at the end :D :D :D :D :D and harry turns into the hobgoblin

  7. Harry potter?….mmmmk

  8. spiderman can not die.there makeing a spiderman 4 i have heard.and what do you mean harry potter,do you mean harry osbourne?.cool joke

  9. spiderman can not die.there making a spiderman 4 i have heard.and what do you mean harry potter,do you mean harry osbourne?.cool joke

  10. if one villian could kill spiderman it would defenetly be venom.becouse venoms strong.fast.cool.and he could even beat a 2000 metre darth vader.so seen as spiderman can not die.maybe he might give up in spiderman 3

  11. back to the anonymous post.topher grace will play venom from what i heard on the computer.couse if you find a picture of thomas haden church,and then look at one of topher grace,then watch a trailer of spiderman 3 with eddie brock in it,and you will see that topher grace looks a bit more like eddie brock than thomas haden church.any way i heard that thomas haden church will be playing sandman in spiderman 3

  12. some of you might have heard that carnage is not apearing in spiderman 3 and sandman is taking his place.and i think i know how eddie brock turns into venom.spiderman fights of the simbioute in the church.but eddies trying to get a picture of spiderman for the daily bugle,then spidermans simbioute drops down a hole falls onto eddie.and spreads across his body,so the simbioute turns him into venom.go onto youtube and then search for venom on the search bar,you will find a video of venom running up to the screan.and you will find one of the most funniest videos ever if you search for dancing venom

  13. i hope beetle carnage & rhino are all in spiderman 4

  14. i like carnage and venom.and i made a costume of them with paper masks and paper symbols,but carnage does’t have a symbol.so i just made 2 of those things that hang off his body,venom is probably my favourite character in the whole comics,cartoons,and even movies when he is in spiderman 3

  15. Spike! Dude!! I would LOVE to be sitting next to you when Spiderman 3 comes out. :-D


  16. thanks!do you know if they are making a spiderman 5 please.if you do please send a reply

  17. i could answer that godfather & spiderman 1 & 2 thing,i think most newest movies are better gustav,but i think watching spiderman 1 is even better than watching all those movies at once

  18. you know i sent in that messege telling you that i made a venom & carnage costume.well i will tell you how to make one if you don’t have enough money to buy one.its simple,you just get some black red and white paper.cut the shape of venoms head out in the black paper.then cut out the shape of venoms eyes with the white paper then stick them on with either bluetack or glue then cut out the mouth with white paper add some teeth.then cut out the tongue in red paper,draw a line down the middle,stick the tongue onto the mouth.and the cut the symbol in the white get a plane black tshirt.if you do not have a plane black t shirt just get a black t shirt with a logo and turn it inside out.then get some black pants.it does not matter if they are plane or not.then lay the tshirt on a table or the floor then stick the simbol on the tshirt with bluetack then get some alastic for the mask.and your done but if you want to add a affect get some silly string and hide it up your sleeve then press the spray and it will look like you are shooting a web like venom does.i think he does anyway

  19. i know this is nothing to do with it.but have a very merry christmas to everybody on screen rant

  20. Hey Spike,

    Merry Christmas to you as well. :-)

    In regards to more Spidey sequels, there are some noises that there may be a Spidey 4, but I don’t know for sure.


  21. thank you for your answer vic.if there is a spiderman 5 i hope mad jack and lizard are in it

  22. ALBERT i think i could help you with that sims thing just have a rest wance it starts annoying you.or leave it for a few hours,have a short 10 minute game,this normally works with me.go to sleep and you will find that in the morning you will be refreshed and get a bit better at it.if this does not work look for cheats on the internet and you might find a few tips and codes

  23. i know that carnage apears in ultimate spiderman book 11 and venom book 6

  24. do you by any chance know if the ghost rider movies a u pg 12 12a 15 or 18.cause i realy dont like jumpy movies so i need to know please

  25. I’m sure Ghost Rider will be PG-13.
