Cast This: Venom

10.08.2009

With the news that Gary Ross is rewriting and likely directing the upcoming VENOM spin-off movie, it's time to start thinking about casting the man behind the pile of black goo. All signs point to Topher Grace being out of the picture, which will please the legions of Spider-man fans who wondered why it was necessary to cast the world’s greatest Tobey Maguire look-a-like as the villain in the third movie.

Now either the franchise will completely reinvent the character of Eddie Brock, or will choose to pick a new host for the symbiote entirely. Brock actually has a pretty great character arc in the comics, so it would be a shame to let that go to waste, but who knows how VENOM will play out.

We may think of Venom as a mindless, power hungry monster, but he’s actually a lot more complex than that, and in the proposed VENOM movie, the actor will likely get a lot of face time, as when his costume recedes, he’s not all marred and disfigured like say, Spawn.

So the way I see this week’s casting call is to either pick someone you think would make a good Eddie Brock, both physically and psychologically, or if you think the Brock well was sucked dry by Topher Grace, suggest an actor to play a new character who gets turned into a snarling black mess by an alien goo blob.

But enough murderous outer space parasites, on to something a bit more lighthearted…

Last Week: BETTY AND VERONICA

A week ago, we had our first ever female AND first ever double feature edition of Cast This, where we asked who would play Betty and Veronica in the sure-to-be-forthcoming ARCHIE movie. Well, voting tabulation was slightly more difficult this time, as it wasn’t always clear who was being suggested for which part, but I think I’ve sorted it out pretty well.

BETTY:

1. Kristen Bell (13%) 2. Scarlett Johansson (10%) 3. Mary Elizabeth Winstead (7%)

VERONICA:

1. Mila Kunis (17%) 2. Megan Fox (13%) 2. Mary Elizabeth Winstead (10%)

No, I did not f*ck that up. Mary Elizabeth Winstead actually ended up placing for both parts, even though I couldn’t find one picture of her with blonde hair, and I can’t remember seeing her in any movie besides DEATH PROOF, but hey, more power to her for making an impression on you guys.

I think Megan Fox vs. Scarlett Johansson would be lame, and each would phone in their roles thinking they’re above such a lowly project like ARCHIE. Kristen Bell and Mila Kunis on the other hand? Pitch perfect. I think they’d have a lot of fun with it, and yes, it’s amusing that they were already rivals in FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL, yet were voted to the #1 spots here of their own accord.

Alright, but enough sugar and spice, time to start thinking of anti-hero contenders for VENOM. Let’s hear them!

EDDIE BROCK!!! PLEASE HEAR ME OUT

1.) It has to be Eddie Brock. How can you have a “Venom” movie and not have Eddie Brock.
2.) Brock Lesnar has the absolute perfect look, but can he act? That’s the biggest question...
3.) Does anyone remember Andrew Bryniarski who was Lattimer in "The Program," and the crazy offensive lineman in "Any Given Sunday"... He can act with some screws loose and I think he has the talent to cast as an unstable anti-hero.
4.) Keep Topher Grace out of this equation, and has no resemblance to Eddie

4.) Keep Topher Grace out of this equation, and has no resemblance to Eddie Brock (biggest mistake in the Marvel movies and yeah I’m even including the villain in the first “HULK”.)
5.) THIS NEEDS TO BE EVEN FLOWING (like the first Spiderman). They tried to incorporate way to much in "Spiderman 3", and should have ended "Spiderman 3" with the introduction of Eddie Brock, therefore leading “Spiderman 4” having Venom as the main villain and introducing Cletus Cassady as Carnage for the 5th Spiderman movie….Anyone thought of Carrot Top as Carnage?
6.) Eddie Brock not a psycho-path serial killer in my perspective... I think this should be directed as a dark hero/vigilante and should be viewed as a Punisher type hero instead of a straight villain.
7.) Needs to be PG-13-R rating, but being that Marvel was bought out by Disney, I am not sure if that will occur.
8.) Lastly, where would the story start, what would be the plot…Wanting to kill Spiderman and realizing that Spiderman is a hero and is saving lives, therefore creating the vigilante hero Venom and seeing the darker side of disciplining criminals???

Spider-Man Origins: Venom

We should keep in mind that in Spider-man 3 Topher's character was called Eddie Brock Jr, so that means that Eddie Brock senior is still waiting for his chance to become Venom; if they tie in the Venom Spin-off with Spider-Man 4 they could have Eddie Brock seek revenge for his son and go after Spider-Man himself and eventually donn the sybiote suit, I can't think of who would be a good choice to play Venom rigt now, especially when I think back and remember what a crappy job Topher Grace did

remember!

Venom isn't necessarily a demented deranged psycho... that's carnage.

eddie brock is a sleazy hater (in that respect topher grace did an ok job). he's supposed to be more douchebag than criminal. once he bonds with the symbiote, then he becomes darker, but it should be a amplification of his doucheyness, not dementedness.

i'd like to see what sam worthington could do as eddie brock.

Uhm...

"Now either the franchise will completely reinvent the character of Eddie Brock, or will choose to pick a new host for the symbiote entirely."

But... then he wouldn't be Venom. That's the alter ego of Eddie Brock and the title of the movie.

You know, even if they got Venom right... I think I would just be thinking afterwards: "Damn, that was great... if only he looked this good in the Spider-Man series."

Actually, "Venom" in the Marvel comics is Mac Gargan (aka The Scorpion) and has been that way for the past 3-4 years. Eddie Brock sold the costume when he was dying of cancer but was cured about a year ago and became Anti-Venom (the worst named character in the Marvel Universe). But Venom is still called VENOM even though there is a new host. Just wanted to throw that out there even though I LOVE Eddie Brock (comic) Venom, the new one has grown on me because he doesn't have the Brock

The first Spidey 3 shot I saw of Thomas Haden Church, I honestly thought it was an Eddie Brock shot. He even blocked up enough to be considered for it. But then the internets said, "no" and that the shirt was a giveaway for Sandman. Too bad.

15 years ago Clancy Brown (Highlander, The Shawshank Redemption) would have been a perfect Eddie Brock. However I have no idea who I'd cast right now. I guess Statham is a good pick.

STATHAM?

I know this may sound odd, but I actually think Jason Statham would fit well into Eddie Brock's shoes. Yeah he isn't the best of actors but [1] he's got the torso to play Brock [2] it'd be a good breakthrough for him into the 'comic adaptation' world and [3] he could pull off a deranged / conflicted / somewhat psycho person.

I think if Statham got handed this role he'd do something pretty cool with it. But that's just me. Oh...and I'm not a fan of Statham or anything...don't like many of

Here's two

if you to skew younger, go with Alexander Skarsgård - The dude has the size and look that Topher lacked.

If you wanted to go older, Kevin McKidd (HBO's ROME).

I also think Jim Carrey is a bad choice because Carnage isn't funny, he's scary and deranged. Though to be fair, I refuse to watch serious Jim Carrey roles.

I love Thomas Jane for Venom though.

I think that Joseph Gordon-Lecitt presents the same problem as Topher Grace in size. The two strike me as similar, though Levitt might be a slightly better fit.

Just saying...

I actually liked Topher Grace in the role. Give him time to hit the gym like a madman and get a lot bigger. He'd be pretty pissed he was only in the movie for 30 minutes! On a serious note, Michael C. Hall or Vinnie Jones are great alternate choices. As for Carnage... I will say this once and only once- HE WILL NOT APPEAR IN SPIDY 4! AN ABOMINATION WORSE THAN BARAKA-POOL WOULD APPEAR IF HE DID BECAUSE THE SPIDY SERIES IS PG13. ALWAYS! That being said, if he does appear in Venom, go with either

I know this is irrelevant and that I have said this before and I'll say this again-Paul Walker for Captain America. Naturally!

Ben Foster would've been my first pick to play Brock in Spidey 3, and he'd be my first choice for a "Venom" solo film. He's one of the best actors of his generation, can play intimadating like nobody's business, and exudes screen pressence. Yes, he's already played characters in two other Marvel films (Punisher and X-Men 3) but playing multiple roles within the Marvel Universe isn't as uncommon as you might think. Watch him in 3:10 to Yuma and (especially) Alpha Dog and you'll see just how

I know we're casting Venom, but seeing as how I already pulled that shit off ;), I'm going to take this time to agree 100% with two other people when I proclaim that Mr. Jakie Earle Haley is perfect for Carnage. I know we don't even know if he will make an appearnce, but the casting of Hall as Venom and Haley as Carnage is perfect. Don't think there is any need to recast Peter, I really think Tobey is perfect casting (assuming hes in the flick).

Ok I think that for the venom movie they shouldn't go with a big name star... that was a big problem with spideyman and xmen...if I could cast this venom movie I would have sam witwer play eddie/venom.... he is a good actor and in great shape.. he can easliy play a heroic but twisted venom... check him out as doomsday on small ville... now if they go with carnage as a villian I was thinking as the great jackie earl haley to play him... come on tell me that wouldn't be sick to see earl as crazy

Holy Shit! Michael C. Hall!

Okay, I may say this everytime because I recently got into Dexter, but Michael C. Hall is PERFECT for Eddie Brock/Venom! I literally can't think of anyone better. He's fairly buff (I'm sure he could buff up) and he always has a very sinister Eddie Brock look about him. He is an incredibly menacing actor, something Topher Grace didn't have. I can really picture the symbiote pulling back, allowing him to mock Peter Parker face to face. He even looks like Eddie from the comics! (minus extreme body

Interesting, BuckNasty1138 (or should I say, Greenman?). I would be very happy with that casting as well. I might need to think about this. He might actually make a better carnage... (I like how I'm about to think something over when I am in no way involved in the decision making process.)

Paul Walker?

He looks like a tougher Topher (to help with that catastrophe) and he is a decent actor. Running Scared impressed me...

I guess Venom WAS in the pipeline! But who to play him, it's tough because unlike the obviously miscast Topher, you need someone with a modest amount of muscle at the very least. There's really no point in casting "Johnny Small" and having him suddenly ripped and huge when the symbiote is out.

That said, you don't want too young/too old, and lest we forget Venom's a dark humored villain like Deadpool, so the vocals gotta be right too. I'd have said Vin Diesel three or four years ago, but

I'd have said Vin Diesel three or four years ago, but now I'd go with a beefed up Daniel Craig. Take a good look at the above "oldschool" pic of Brock and tell me there isn't a resemblance. He's even got the dirty blond hair.

No way Gary Busey or Jake Busey should be Carnage!!

Chris Pine could be Brock/Venom.
