Strange Things We Ignore About Spider-Man & Venom's Relationship

    These two have a long, complicated history and every time they meet it's always a coin toss to see how they're going to react. Will they fight? Will they work together? Keep watching to learn more about the bizarre relationship between Spider-Man and Venom.

    In 2007's Spider-Man 3, Peter Parker's bonding with the Venom symbiote does more than change the color of his costume and enhance his powers, it makes him a jerk. The symbiote boosts destructive emotions in Peter, like anger and jealousy.

    Among other things, he hunts and attempts to kill Sandman and brings Gwen Stacy to a nightclub in a manipulative plan to make Mary Jane jealous. He even gets in a fight with the club's bouncers, which ends with him accidentally hurting Mary Jane. It's this last act that makes Parker realize what's happening and finally take action to get rid of the symbiote.

    In the comics, however, things worked out a little differently. While the symbiote made Spider-Man do things against his will, it didn't do so by turning him into an evil version of Peter Parker. Rather than finding the costume on Earth like he did in the film, Peter picked it up out in space during the events of Secret Wars, and shortly after he returned to New York with his new suit, the symbiote apparently decided that its host was a little too lazy. Most nights, the symbiote waited until Parker was asleep, took over his body, and went out to find more crime to fight, all the while controlling its human host's unconscious body like a puppet. One of the first clues Parker has that something is wrong is when he constantly wakes up exhausted even though, as far as he knows, he's been asleep in bed for hours.

      In Venom 2 there probably will be a 3rd symbiote character to help fight Carnage.There were several symbiotes in the first movie,so it's possible.

                Think of the Venom symbiote as just Peter Parker's alien Ex.

                She came with him to Earth, got a little too clingy, and when she got dumped she got possessive. So much so she tried to date Peter's friends and dress them in his clothes to make him jealous. Even after all these years, she still carries a torch for him.

                                  I no expert in comic book lore, but didn't venom absorb/copy Spidey's powers before meeting Eddie Brock? So SONY introducing Venom without the symbiote bonding to Spider-Man before does not make any sense to me. Also the very tragic and interesting relationship between Eddie and Peter has been missing out.

                                    They have a Catwoman/Batman relationship (minus the romantic part, duh) where its just unpredictable. They fight a lot but they work together as well.

                                      Greedy $ONY Really Shit The Bed with their Venom Movie , MCU could have introduced Venom with all the back story and history involving him and sider-man !

                                        Poison would have been a great twist, they fully merged on a genetic level, Peter is separated from the evil half, Peter, is more like anti venom, and venom is blasted onto Eddie. Because dr. Strange used his magic to separate the evil of the symbiotes from peter. Peter looks like the zombie like poison peter, and used the shape shifting powers to look like his old self, venom looks the same and venom has the same hate and relationship with peter as usual. But peter changed his look to a white and red look so people stop thinking he’s venom. Venom kept more of the power and Eddie working out makes the symbiote stronger like it does in canon

                                          I wish Spiderman's powers or abilities could be upgraded. Let him spit venom or be able to shrink to the size of a spider or something! He needs to be able to do more than just shoot webs.

                                            Carnage was always a genuinely terrifying character to me. Like he wasn't the first legit pyschopath in Comics but you didnt see a lot of that kinda thing out of Spider-Man stories.

                                                Wrong. Every time they meet they fight. Sometimes they work together, but only after the fight.

                                                  Why so much focus on the much belief Spider-Man 3? And no mention of the 90s animated series, which was probably a big influence on the movie, and maybe a little on the Venom movie as well. Also Brock wasn't a photographer in comics.

                                                  • Andrew Singleton

                                                    kinda hoping for a secret wars/battle world and it being animated so we can explicitly have spidervers's Miles show up.

                                                    I mean you have spiderman having the technical/engineering bits and since he's still in high school he'd already have experience having to 'dumb it down' for other people, or even just him just going 'nah that's a mouthful just call it the goober and be done with it' Then Eddie's angle is learning the human element of where they are the history and depending on the setup it could be they're stuck on a cyberpunk or some other despotic hellhole and venom's trying to carve out a niche keeping people safe and spiderman's at first tricked into helping the establishment because all he sees are the cool flying cars and whatnot so 'there is this creature in the undercity where the criminals are. they are criminals but they are still our people. Help us capture this thing'

                                                    so there you go excuse for the two to fight and reconcile and a common enemy. Even better if the world was a place the grandmaster from the mcu set up shop at because he's a FUN villain.

                                                    More importantly he's a KNOWN villain we don't have to spend too much time on setup for.

                                                      How could you not mention that the homicidal maniac that originally led the symbiote to lose its mind was Deadpool?

                                                        The Carnage symbiote is the child of the alien costume, not a scrap of it.

                                                            I remember that comic since it was Mark Bagley art (one of my faves as a growing lad...and still is to this day). You didn't mention anything about Deadpool being the first host to that symbiote or that this version is female even though you hinted at it with the saving Parker and the caress.

It's obvious that they knew people wanted a Venom movie, so they slapped one together, "Here you go." The action was okay, ish. No idea what was going on, but lots of things moving around. Also, how it got a PG-13 rating with all the decapitations, and talking about decapitations. I would think that biting someone's head off would have more blood, or some blood. Just make it R, then you can have blood. Riot cut an entire room full of people in half, no blood. I'm pretty sure an Alien that posesses people, and enjoys biting off heads is not a children's movie, let's go ahead and make it R.
