Alex Kurtzman Teases VENOM; "You Can Do Things That You Can't With SPIDER-MAN"

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 producer and writer drops a few hints about the dark direction that the Venom movie he intends on directing will take, and much to the relief of many fans also confirms that he has no involvement with 2018's The Amazing Spider-Man 3...


Despite the fact that Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci's screenplay for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was not well received by a lot of critics and fans, the former is still attached to helm Venom (which has been rumoured to be called Venom/Carnage) for Sony Pictures. There's currently no firm word on any sort of release date, leading many to believe that the spin-off - which has been rumoured for a number of years - will never happen. Regardless, when MTV News caught up with Kurtzman to ask about the project recently, he said: "The idea is that you can do things with Venom that you can’t do with Spider-Man. Venom is the representation of every line that will get crossed. He’s a much darker character." Interestingly, he actually believes that Sony have a head start on Marvel and their Cinematice Universe  because of the franchise's history.

His advice for whoever works on The Amazing Spider-Man 3? "I think as long as it keeps staying true to character, and true to who Peter is, and putting him in interesting and complicated situations, it’ll survive.
