That is interesting! I had never heard that before.

Spider-man 3 was not good. It did, however, have massive potential to be good. The idea of a movie where Peter's rage drives him to a deeper and darker place until he finally learns to make peace with it is compelling. Unfortunately, by introducing the symbiote Peter's emotional arc is stunted. Nothing he does is his fault and the consequences of his actions are never explored. This movie could have been great. Regardless of whose idea Venom was (and I have always heard that Avi Arad insisted on Venom) the choice to put the symbiote and Venom in the movie was a bad one. And, ultimately, a choice the franchise has never recovered from.

You see, I don't think the problem was Venom or the Symbiote. Both have been amazingly popular over the years.

The problem was the execution. Can you really say the Sandman stuff was interesting, special effects aside?

('I really killed Uncle Ben' deus ex machina that makes no sense, or 'I have a dying daughter so that's why I'm a baddie', or 'Spidey let me go at the end', or any number of other bland things he did)

-Jeremiah Ecks,
who thinks at least Venom had an interesting 'I'm a dark Peter' thing going on.
