Kurtzman feels that a Venom movie has “Darker” potential than ‘Spider-Man’

"Venom is the representation of every line that will get crossed."

‘Star Trek’ writer Alex Kurtzman has made some comments about his planned ‘Venom’ spin-off from the ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ movies.

“The idea is that you can do things with Venom that you can’t do with Spider-Man,” Kurtzman told MTV.

“Venom is the representation of every line that will get crossed. He’s a much darker character.”

Also in the works at Sony is a ‘Sinister Six’ film, which features some of the most iconic Spider-man villains. The seeds for Sinister Six were seeded in the closing moments of ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2,’ which was released on DVD and Blu Ray a few weeks ago.

This will not be the first time that Venom has featured on the Big Screen. The villain made a pretty substantial appearance in Sam Raimi’s third ‘Spider-Man’ movie, which was critically panned.

A ‘Venom’ movie of one sort or other has been doing the rounds since his appearance in that film, but this particular one looks like it could have legs.
