    Maybe some smart nanobots from Oscorp that instead of curing the host go bananas and infect them with some virus?

    I'm kinda worried though how will the suit look and behave and how will they deal with its abilities without it coming off as lame. The alien origin would've been cooler imo.

    Codename for Venom reportedly is "Antidote" and an audition video by Casey Jayne reading for Ann.

    I can imagine the dialog...

    "Well, as a matter of fact, we've been working for the past several years on something that could potentially be a much needed cure for millions of people around the world like yourself. It's not entirely finished, but in the past few months we've made some remarkable progress."

    "What is it? How... How does it work?"

    "We call it simply 'The Antidote' and it is basically a sentient and artifcially designed organism in the form of a living suit programmed specificially to find a host's damaged cells and then repair them at a much faster rate than other convenient means."

    "I have no idea what you just said. But I reckon it could... Do you think.... It would help me?"

    "It hasn't been tested yet humans as the data we have is incomplete and we are unsure how exactly it would behave, but..."

    "Doctor, I... This is my only chance. I need this. Please."


    Three chapters later

    "You fool. What is this? What have you done? The suit... It's killing me. This isn't an antidote. This is pure venom!"

    (yeah, sorry, I'm just super hyped and super bored lol)

    Columbia president says Venom will be influenced by Cronenberg and Carpenter with a dose of pop and fun. Fleischer notes he's always been more drawn to antiheroes.

    Uh not sure you want to admit a super hero related movie is looking to influence Cronenberg after what happened with Fan4stic which made a similar boast. Granted at least it makes SENSE with Venom as the black suit symbotie is suppose to be a scary experience and again I am glad there is going to be a focus on Eddie Brock's relationship with the symbotie and how that influences Venom. As that would be a good thing the movie could focus on. Just so long that if it is a focus it makes sense within the narrative and there isn't a grating tonal shift due to over exensive reshoots. Though again I think doing the regular origin (and just have the symboite come across the radioactive spider and absorb it and have that take over Brock) would work better for this then the Ultimate version but again will be willing to give this a chance and be proven otherwise.

    I hope there will be a build up of tension and at least one iconic scene the movie will become known for, along with a scene where it will rain.

    Maybe it's the Wild Pack for continuity purposes :p?

    Though Venom is probably going to need a lot of red-shirts to plow through...

    Michelle Williams is in talk for the female lead.

    Definitely sounds like Ann Weyling (Brock's ex-wife) from the comics.

    Makes me wonder if we're going to see Brock fight hand-to-hand without the Symbiote...

    Sin Eater or whoever the bad guy perhaps will figure out the Symbiote's elemental weaknesses and exploit it, forcing Brock to fight himself.
