The Spider’s out of the bag

Venom, the villain in the upcoming Spiderman 3 has finally been revealed, unintentionally. A toy company, Medicom Toy Corporation have released their official Venom action figures.

After a whole year of tight-lipped studio marketing executives keeping a shut-lid on the look of the upcoming mega-blockbuster’s principal villain, a toy company has let the proverbial cat out of the bag.  

Medicom Toy Corporation, who have the rights to the film’s merchandise, have made their Venom figures available for purchase five months before the film is released. It is unclear whether this is a breach of contract by Medicom or a mere hole in the tight-knit security that Sony Pictures have created around the villainous Venom.  

From the picture, it appears that Sam Raimi’s design team have stuck quite rigidly to Venom’s look in the original comic books, whilst incorporating elements of the alien suit that Spiderman will wear in the film. This was a wise choice considering the touchy nature of the hardcore comic book fans. Plus, why fix what ain’t broken? Venom was undoubtedly the best Spiderman villain and his fusion with Topher Grace’s Eddie Brock has become one of the summer’s most anticipated moments.  

The Venom figure is selling at Sideshow Collectibles, for the hefty sum of $99.  

For the latest Spiderman 3 trailer, look no further than below this text.

Kill Bill Vol. 2 (2004)

Bill:Pai Mei taught you the five point palm-exploding heart technique?
The Bride:Of course he did.
Bill:Why didn't you tell me?
The Bride:I don't know... because I'm a bad person.
Bill:No. You're not a bad person. You're a terrific person. You're my favorite person, but every once in a while, you can be a real cunt.
