What is Up with Venom?

After begging for just about the entire summer for Sam Raimi to choose Venom as one of the villains for Spider-Man 3, two recent reports have finally confirmed that Venom will in fact appear in the sequel and be played by Topher Grace. Great news! However, with good always comes the bad, and this scoop is slightly troubling.

Spider-Man 3 Villain Profiles

According to a scoop sent in to FreezeDriedMovies, the costume design for the villains for Spider-Man 3 is nothing short of atrocious [aka, sucks big monkey balls]. Check out the scoop below:

Basically the costume design in Spiderman 3 is a disaster, just like Mr. Green Goblin in the first Spidey. Our scooper writes in, "If you thought the first 'Spiderman' was bad in terms of development, just wait until you see the next film. The first problem is with Venom's costume, which Spiderman wears first. Instead of being pure black, they took a bit from the comic and gave it a disgusting purple tint. In the comic the reason for the tint was to Venom stood out in the shadows, but in film there's no reason for this. Now I've actually seen the costume designs and they're terrible. The purple looks awful.

And yes it gets much, much worse. All I can say about the Hobgoblin outfit is "yikes"! He looks like a skateboarder or something."

Now, being a huge fan of the animated series, Venom is definitely one of my favorite villains of all time. Just the fact that the individual wearing the space syndicate can morph into any outfit they like, including one tough looking spidie outfit, should be cool enough to help the box office numbers go soaring. However, this latest scoop claims that Venom looks like crap. Crap!

Should we begin to worry? Probably not. Considering that we have just under two years left until the release of Spider-Man 3, we should assume a lot of improvements with time.

Spider-Man 3 comes to theatres on May 4th, 2007.
