Painful-looking. Painful-looking and scary.

I like it, creepy though it is.

I just wonder if they are going to make venom 100% CGI or will they use the rubber suit in the more "static" scenes.

The temptation will be to have him 100% CGI - they might even pull it off. Though I doubt it. The best special effects always seem to come from a decent mix of physical and computer effects (eg - Jurassic Park)

It does look very cool. On the CGI thing though, it depends on if they'll make him all super muscley like in the comics, or if he'll retain his normal body structure. Cause if he stayed the same, they could use less CGI on him.

Venom Won Over Spidey 3's Raimi

Spider-Man 3 director Sam Raimi told SCI FI Wire that he was at first reluctant to make the sequel's big villain the alien-human hybrid Venom, a fan favorite to be played by Topher Grace, and that the SF nature of Venom didn't fit neatly in the more realistic world of the Spider-Man movies. "Avi Arad—[the former Marvel chief] who's really got his pulse on all the Marvel fans better than any head of a corporation has ever understood those people who are interested in the corporation's product—he really knows what those kids want," Raimi said in a group interview at Comic-Con International in San Diego over the weekend. "And he said, 'You know, you've ... had two Spider-Man pictures. This third one, there's so many kids, so many fans of Spider-Man, [who] want to see Venom, even if you didn't grow up with him. They want to see him. So you've got the Sandman [Thomas Haden Church]. That's one of your favorite villains. Why don't you bring Venom in also and make those kids, the fans of Venom, happy.' And that's what I thought we should do."

Raimi added that he was won over once he saw how screenwriter Alvin Sargent made use of the character, not to mention how Grace played him and his human alter ego, Eddie Brock. "Now that I've seen Topher Grace perform and saw what Alvin Sargent did with the script—he created a great character, really filled out Eddie Brock into a very meaningful character—and Tobey [Maguire, who plays Peter Parker/Spider-Man,] has a great energy with him in the few scenes that they play together as competitors, and I really like him now."

Venom is the combination of a black alien goo and Eddie Brock, who is a rival of Peter Parker's both in journalism and for the hand of Mary Jane Watson, played by Kirsten Dunst.

As for the science-fiction nature of the Venom storyline, Raimi said: "There's a lot of fantastic elements about Venom that you could say are in conflict with the realism that we wanted to have in the picture. But we just said to ourselves, 'Kirsten and Tobey, you'll have to do the heavy lifting here to bring it back down to Earth, because there's this wild goo from outer space, and you're just going to have to connect us to the characters.'" Spider-Man 3 is in post-production and will premiere May 4, 2007.

Personally, the venom story arc was the primary story arc when I was an avid fan of the comics (1981 - 1990) and I am seriously fired up. The villians thusfar have been more "classic" villians from the 60's and 70's, more famous probably because of the cartoon series than the comics. The buzz around this film already has me in orbit, can't imagine how I will feel by May!
