Much like Elektra and the upcoming Wolverine movies, who thinks that after everything is said and done with the black suit/Venom plot that may be played out in SM3,4 etc; that Venom will get his own movie? I think that he should for the reason that most people won't be happy with how he will be seen in the SM movies. Spider-Man has been rated PG-13 so far and to rate it anything higher would mean that the franchise would go from a 400mil. draw to a 200mil draw. Whereas you could make more money from the franchise by releasing a Venom movie with a higher rating... The downside/upside of this is that you would get a different director. Most often, they are up and comers which can be good or bad... look at Elektra. I like the character of Venom but I like Spidey even more and would like anything relating to Venom to tie to Spidey (aka: don't make a Spidey movie all about Venom). So it would be good to do a spin-off. Maybe get Paul WS Anderson to direct (Mortal Kombat, Resident Evil, AVP) Not to start a huge debate but he seems like a Fanboy director and Venom (to me at least) is a fanboy character, a Spidey carbon copy. (eep... don't hate me.. I just like other villains better) your thoughts?
