When Sony was planning their Amazing Spider-Man cinematic universe, Venom was intended to be one of the spinoffs to build on. That franchise has since been scrapped in favor of incorporating Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but Venom is still getting a shot at his own solo adventure. It was announced last Friday that Dante Harper has been hired to pen a Venom movie, with Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach returning to produce. Details are sparse, including whether the original Venom, a.k.a. Eddie Brock, is being featured, or if we'll get Flash Thompson as Agent Venom. The only thing that’s official this Venom movie is being looked at as "apart from and unrelated" to what’s happening with Spider-Man in his new reboot.

Not having any direct ties to Spider-Man will be tricky considering how closely Venom is linked to the Web-Slinger. Still, there are plenty of other characters from the Marvel universe who can appear without screwing up their plans, whether it’s an enemy for Venom to battle or another Spider-Man character who can serve as an informal connective thread. Here are the folks who would make great additions to the Venom movie.

Carnage
Carnage
Venom has committed a lot of bad deeds over the decades, but they don’t hold a candle to what Carnage has done. When Eddie Brock was cellmates with serial killer Cletus Kasady in the comics, the Venom symbiote re-bonded with him and allowed him to break out of prison. In the process, the symbiote left an offspring, which bonded to Cletus and turned him into Carnage. While Venom has at least has somewhat of a moral center, Carnage has no regard for human life and sees the world as chaotic. Combined with his enhanced abilities, this makes him both one of Spider-Man and Venom’s most dangerous enemies. Many fans have been eager to see a live action Carnage, and if he can’t battle Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, then having him battle Venom (a.k.a. a fight between "parent and child") is a must. Actually, that might just be the better course of action. Symbiote vs. symbiote: a truly epic battle.
