So, out of the 3 Marvel Universes (Disney, Fox & Sony), Sony is my least favorite. The reason is because they only own the Spider-Man universe, which will probably end by 2020 anyway:/
But luckily, Spider-Man has the biggest singular universe out of all Marvel characters. And now, Sony are deciding to make a spin-off called Venom Carnage, which is the BEST IDEA EVER!!
So, in case you don't know the story, once Peter Parker realizes that being Spider-Man is putting his close friends and family in danger, he decides to give up the suit. However, one day he comes across an alien symbiote, a black gooey substance that latches onto Peter as its host, and he feels stronger than ever before. He becomes a superhero again, and uses the symbiote to fight crime harder- however there are side effects. Venom's ultimate purpose is mass destruction, and it messes with Peter's mind, meaning that he will not spare his enemies and disrespect his friends- just overall being a d*ck. Luckily, he's a nice guy inside:) so he takes it off. Later on, some guy called Eddie Brock found it, and adopted the name Venom. He wasn't as heroic as Peter, so he was vulnerable to Venom, and caused major havoc. Spider-Man stopped him by using noise, and Brock was put in a Class A prison, in a cell with the psychopath Cletus Kasady. This man had major issues, cos he pushed his Nan down a flight of stairs, threw the TV in the bath when his Mum was in it and even started killing strangers, so he was a really dangerous jerk. After a while in prison, Venom returned to Brock, and he escaped The Vault, leaving Kasady behind. However, Venom left an offspring during his visit, a red substance that could now form weapons and was stronger than Venom and Spider-Man combined. It entered Kasady's bloodstream through a cut, and the psycho escaped with the new symbiote. He caused mass murders, and wrote CARNAGE on every crime scene with his blood. He later confronted Brock and beat him in a fight, so he teamed up with Spider-Man to defeat Carnage.
So this movie needs to be VERY different to [The Amazing Spider-Man](movie:45497) franchise - it needs to be a 15 rated PROMETHEUS dark, and there's gotta be lots of characters:
Spider-Man: The protagonist (confirmed)
Venom: The anti-hero (confirmed)
Carnage: The antagonist (confirmed)
Black Cat: The sidekick (tba)
Sony might even throw in Carnage's offspring, Toxin, who used NYPD officer Patrick Mulligan, and was the first symbiote to be an ally to Spider-Man. It depends if Brock will help Spider-Man or not, as in the comics, Eddie Brock's wife convinces him to fight for justice instead of evil:)
