I don't think venom is lame or one dimensional.

I find the concept of a villain who has actually been inside your head and knows you inside out to be incredibly creepy.

Especially if you couple that with it attaching itself onto someone you know who now also knows all your secrets and just happens to hate you as well.

Most people don't get it, but Venom is one of my favourite villains of all time because of that, and certainly my fave Spidey villain. It's a psychological element that no other villain really has, and it's always interested me.

That said, this movie idea scares the crap out of me

Venom without Spiderman basically means taking out everything I just said makes him interesting and really threatening. It'd be a dumb idea and I can't imagine it succeeding.

Superman: "I can only tell you what I believe, Diana. humankind has to be allowed to climb to its own destiny. We can't carry them there."
Flash: "But that's what she's saying. What's the point? Why should they need us at all?"
Superman: "To catch them if they fall."
