Pascal had contact just a week earlier with Avi Arad, pictured below, who spoke of a Venom spinoff film.

This time of year the circular tell us what's out or not. If you look at the Toy circular, you will see that the Disney Infinity game has Venom as a character. I think Venom is one of the biggest movies that we can do. By the way, all ads of Disney Infinity has the Venom. I would like you to give me the blessing for me to continue with the work and make Venom. As you know, I'm a big believer that we have to follow the comics. If you are ok for you, I would like to be very aggressive with this film. Please let me know.

Venom was previously featured as a secondary villain in the trilogy concluding 2007 film, Spider-Man 3 portrayed by That 70s Show star, Topher Grace.
