Meet the Anti Venom

05.01.2008
After the travesty that was Venom in SPIDER-MAN 3, the character needed some kind of reboot, something to restore his credibility. To think, that those who arenít familiar with the comics, which is most people who saw the film, thought Venom to be this whiny, weak, secondary character, vanquished in twenty minutes. Now, writer Dan Slott and artist John Romita Jr. are trying to do Venom some justiceósort of. Theyíre the creators behind Anti-Venom, a new symbiote who looks like a cross between the old Venom and the CLOVERFIELD monster (wow, remember the days of endless speculation about what that monster looked like? Itís strange being able to reference casually now). EW.com has nabbed the exclusive first look, so click on those violent claws to check out Anti-Venom in his fully realized, vile self. And let the speculation for SPIDER-MAN 4 begin.
Extra Tidbit: Anti-Venom will be part of a six-issue arc called SIX WAYS TO DIE.

I don't see how this is movie news. Seems like a flimsy excuse to editorialize on a year-old movie to me.

And as any longtime Marvel fan can tell you, this is just another tired attempt to "reinvent" a Spider-Man villain, and like all other such efforts it will last a year at most before fan demand and gradual editorial recognition of the lousiness of the idea in the first place drive them back to the classic design.

But theu have a newer Venom

If I'm not mistaken, they already had a redesigned Venom with actual eyes.
I do know he was in Civil War and was supposed to be the old Scorpion. Can anyone correct me or elaborate?

Venom is much cooler

the fact is, this would look stupid on film compared to simple, spectacular venom. What a great movie a Venom-only Spiderman could've been. A little bit of build up with the love triangle, Peter goes bad and pisses Eddie off...Eddie becomes Venom...second hour is a long fight. SIMPLE.

LOL Anti-Venom, honestly? You can come up with a better name than this.

Also, what's with the comic books news being posted on this movie site, while you refuse to post TV stuff because it's a movie site

In addition, not everyone reads comics/watches cartoon/plays with Marvel toys, so not everyone knows who Venom is.

Sure...

This new design looks fine; but it is no Venom.
It's actually pretty sad that most of Spiderman3's audience had never heard of Venom. HOW CAN YOU NOT KNOW WHO VENOM IS!?!?!?!?!
The purpose behind Anti-Venom's conception is pretty disheartening. Oh well.

i always thought the various symbiotes that spawned from venom (carnage and the variously hued children whos names i can't remember) were all cool looking creations... but, really, how many times do we need to have a spidey villain that is one of these things?
