Holy Crap! There Used To Be Venom stuff!

Hey guys... So, Sony has asked us to remove the images... hopefully enough of you saw it so there aren't too many pissed off fans out there. They said the filmmakers had not approved the images. I don't really know what the big deal is... you didn't see much anyway. Oh well... I've left the article so the talkbacks can continue... Aren't we due for the full length trailer next month? Hopefully it'll be as kick-ass as the teaser was...

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. Upon my awakening from my post Prague travels, the very first email I see in the main AICN folder contains these scans from Master Replica's upcoming SPIDER-MAN 3 line of collectibles. The folks at Yoda's News nabbed this scoop which shows us a design sketch for Venom as well as a prototype for the Venom face (uncolored). The prototype is a little weird... don't know how much I like the mouth, but I have to say... love the jagged eyes and the veiny look to the raised webbing. The Venom art is really nice. That mouth looks great! On top of all that, those statues look fucking cool. Just Spider-Man hanging upsidedown... I want! What do you folks think?

  • Oct. 24, 2006, 5:15 p.m. CST

    Can't really complain

    by pjdon

    We all knew Sam Raimi would tone down the look of venom just to make it more believable. Also he had said that he would be using a suit as apposed to full cgi so considering it's just Topher Grace under there he looks pretty big. Love what they have done with the veiny webbing also.

    You wouldn't know a decent Venom costume if it climbed onto your head and took a shit. You're the same douchebags who had a problem with the organic webs back in the day and guess what? You were wrong about that shit, too. Bring it on, Raimi! See you in hell, chumps.

    Not that you can make a final judgment call anyhow,

    by rbatty024

    since it's not in color or moving, but from what I see it looks pretty good. You can't really have the Venom snout in the movie, so the lips are acceptable. The veins look pretty cool as well. Spiderman 2 was better than the first so let's see if Raimi can top himself a second time.

    Come on crybabies.

    by Mooly

    Let's be clear. Early reports of "venom" indicate that the vast moajority of the movie is Peter Parker with the symbiote suit. Reports also indicate that Brock doesn't receive the symbiote until close to the very end of the movie, if not THE very end. This means that it is not only unrealistic, but stupid to expect the version of venom we all know and love to be in this movie. The toys are based on the movie and therefore are based either on a corrupted Parker or the two seconds of Brock-Venom that is actually in the movie.

Because...I mean, if I have to pay $150 to have a cloth Spider-Man mask to wear around the house, I'll do it. And yes, I'm almost 30. And yes, I think I've officially reached the point where the possibility of a replica Spider-Man mask being available erects my penis faster than any porn. So...I'm just gonna go play in traffic now.

    re: Venom's Flaming Lips

    by stickmangrit

    am i the only one who thinks that the difference between the bust and art displays some fucking awsome possibilities? namely that of Brock and Parker going toe to toe with Brock as nothing more than Black-Suit Spidey with a mouth, only to have that mouth suddenly get a fuckload wider and sharper mid-sentence. have the claws pop out at about the same time as well and we have potential for a fuck-off awesome sequence.

    Lips seem fine to me...

    by Ribbons

    ...it just seems weird to some of you because comic book artists tend to draw Venom with his mouth perpetually hanging open while his 15-foot calamari tongue slobbers all over the place. The lips are intentionally big, as I think the mouth is supposed to be fairly large as well. It'll look fine, as will the rest of him. I particularly like the raised, vein-y webbing.

    Yeah, it's smaller than it's current "always open with tongue and green slime," but it's still mighty big. Then again, that's Todd McFarlaine, who drew Tony Twisterelli that way half the time, too. I still say a large mouth is the way to go, with lots of fangs. Making it a "reveal" scene where the mouth enlarges could work, too.

    by misnomer

    http://www.superherohype.com/forums/showthread.php?t=254012 ^shows the symbiote in a much gooier way, and if you look at the face thats classic venom. DONT PANIC from what Ive heard on the ol ssh boards, the "mouthless" venom was an early concept, so theres a strong possibility that venoms mouth would be cgi'ed in later....plus the raised webbing is black and not silver, so despite appearances, were going to get a pretty classic looking venom. also strong chance that well get parkers symbiote suit going a little haywire and giving him a venom face for a spilt second, which will really fuck the audience up! this movie is going to own and own and own

    I don't give a shit....

    by Bootskin

    about the general consensus here, BUT I actually think the design is a good compromise between something "new" and easier to digest/translate to the screen for people not familiar with venom, and us comic nerds who actually know what Venom looks like. Without the veiny, raised webbing, Venom would look rather plain if all matte black with no substance to him. Not only that, but it wouldn't lend to the screen much without some type of texture. I haven't been let down by Raimi yet, so we'll see...

    by thebearovingian

    when people still continue to say "oh they had to change the character/story/suit to make it more believable". Yeah, a movie about a dude who gets bit by a radioactive spider and the spider's DNA combines with his and then he gets super-human strength and can climb walls etc. B/C people can believe that but not if he wears a smooth, black costume with a big white spider on it (front and back) and white diamond/square/whatever shapes on his hands. Apply everything I've just said to every other superhero movie, shake, stir, and vomit.

    You're getting confused, bearovingian

    by half vader

    Don't confuse fantasy story elements with visual interest. In the same way that adding the texture/moiré patterns to the regular Spiderman costume helped it maintain visual interest when blown up across the size of a movie screen (where you don't have the same stylized rimlighting and big black lines to separate the character from the background like a comic which is only a few inchs wide), and stopped the loss of definition you get with spandex suits, things like raised webbing/veins stop a black character becoming a hole in the screen (compositionally speaking). If the character is going to look like they're part of a photorealistic environment then you need similar colour values but there's gotta be some sort of detail to help define the form, especially at that size. You're arguing storytelling tone vs visual/practical execution. Ignorant stuff like that drives ME crazy, especially with your fanboy-ish lording over everyone. I'll apply your views when you make the ultimate superhero movie that shows us all how it's done. I won't hold my breath though.

    by Ribbons

    Really? Because it's the other way around with me. It drives me crazy that people say "it's a crazy superhero movie where [insert crazy shit here] happens, therefore anything I deign cool can and should happen!!!" Re-combinant super-spider/human DNA may have no realistic foundation in *our* world, but it presents an internal logic in the movie that is vague enough to allow for the suspense of disbelief. Spider-Man can't just pull a hamburger out of his ass when he's hungry, because that makes no fucking sense in any context. As for the black suit, well, I don't think it's any more rational that it took on the appearance of his normal suit (only black) -- I just happen to like the way it looks.

    Kraken, you're a great guy and all...

    by ErnieAnderson

    But stop hitting the pipe. Venom is utter clown shoes. Just because he wears a black costume doesn't make Venom a cool character. Morphing ain't special any more (it wasn't ever, really). Other than hating Spider-Man, Venom has no character to speak of, no motivation, and no reason to even be in the book -- let alone the movie. I'm hoping this new take changes my mind (at least in the context of the movies), but Venom is singlehandedly the lamest comic book character ever. And that includes McFarlane's lameass and derivative Spawn.

    I think Head In A Box...

    by Childe Roland

    ...must have been duped into reading an awful lot of posts he wouldn't otherwise have read by the "..." technique and, therefore, has developed a paranoid, narcissistic fanatasy about people using perhaps the most appropriate punctuation to continue a thought in some insidous plot to waste his time. Seek help, Head. You can resist the ellipse. And nobody is trying to attract your attention. Really.

    by deadpool51

    THose arent lips on "Venom", those are Eddie Brocks lips. The symbiot hasnt totally covered his face yet in the head statue. so, you are just seeing Eddie Brocks human mouth and chin.

    you are the smartest person on here. Im so glad to here someone else realize thats some stuff doesnt not cross over mediums and alwasy work with out tweaking it. THe raised webbings is a must for the black suit or he will just look like a black blob. its sorta the same for green goblin, his comic suit would have looked weird on screen and would have turned a movie into a comic book movie. now, i did think there futuristic Goblin suit was crap, but he was goin in the right direction, they should have done a combination of both, sorta like the Alex Ross design he made for the movie

    After the jump...

    by idahomer

    is a holdover term from print. The "Jump" is the continuation of an article on another page. One the web, the jump is usually the "More" button that continues a posting. So 16 pics after the jump would likely be the 16th pic on the second page.

  • Oct. 25, 2006, 3:46 p.m. CST

    Or...

    by idahomer

    ...there are 16 pics for viewing on the next page. It may also refer to an ad placed in the middle of an article, that you "jump" past.

    Ribbons and Half Vader

    by thebearovingian

    I hear ya but I personally think Hollywood could make ANY suit work on screen with today's technology (maybe they can borrow Harry's ILM light that's...magic). Starblitzer, Steve Rogers, and I stand firm about the black Spidey costume. Unless they opt out, and if that's the case, then I stand alone.

    by half vader

    Sorry I was so harsh - You're a genius for thinking of Harry's Industrial Light that's ... no I can't say it! We agree to disagree about Spidey/Venom/Whatever the hell he is at that point as for example keeping the raised stuff is a logical visual clue of what it evolved from (or is a bastardisation of) and also lets the filmmakers use lighting & palette to tie the foreground character to the background plate without having to go insane with the rimlighting to separate him from the background plane. In other words the colours and atmospheric perspective make him look like he's part of the environment and the detail stops him from getting lost in it. Besides which, I'm no Venom expert but I agree with the people who reckon he's at the end and maybe not completely 'evolved' or whatever but that's just speculation (maybe they could keep going and the webbing does eventually become icky veins all over which would acheive the same effect). - Still, some things have nothing to do with where technology's at and no amount of tech can make, say, yellow spandex look good on a 30 foot screen. Wink. ______________ P.S. Deadpool, you're my best friend. I'll pay you later.
