Exactly. A Venom movie is bananas in the first place, but not having him firmly established as a Spidey villain (or even anti-hero) is lunacy. Spidey should have the symbiote first to establish what the symbiote truly is. Then you introduce Eddie Brock (and Venom should ALWAYS be Eddie Brock) and you go from there.
