Sony has hired ‘Zombieland’ writers Pual Wernick and Rhett Reese to pen a Spider-Man spin off focusing on the villain Venom. The details of the script are deeply under-wraps (of course), and seem to be focusing on the mythology of the character.
Personally, the last Spider-Man in my humble opinion was a turkey. I hated everything about it, including Topher Grace as Venom. It made no sense to me to go from one of the best comic book movies to one of the worst, but I still hold high hope for this one.
