“Do you need Spider-Man in Venom’s first movie?” I’m guessing 9 out of 10 comic book fans will quickly answer “yes” to that question. After all, Spidey plays a huge role in Eddie Brock becoming Venom (read Amazing Spider-Man #300), and then the wall-crawler continues to play a big part in Venom’s story. The frightening foe’s a twisted reflection of the friendly hero and the two have had their fair share of memorable stories over the years. Like it or not, they’re strongly connected. That said, can you rework Venom’s story to not include Spider-Man? Yes, it’s definitely possible. Should you, though? Well, that all depends on what they’re bringing to the table, doesn’t it?
