In December, we told you about Sony's plans for Venom and Sinister Six movies, and now Roberto Orci has shared a few more details with IGN about some of their concepts for the upcoming villain-centric movies.
He talks about the challenge of getting an audience behind antiheroes, but shows like The Shield, Breaking Bad, and others show that it can be done. They feel like audiences have seen everything, and it's time to shake things up.
When they move the conversation to Venom, asking whether Flash Thompson or Eddie Brock will become the character, Orci dodges the question, but does offer a bit on keeping the universe tied together with Oscorp.
Oscorp plays an important part in how our villains get created, obviously, in the first one. So because Peter becoming Spider-Man came out of that, rather than saying, "And then this alien came from space," or whatever, they're doing human-hybrid, weird stuff at Oscorp. That's where Gwen Stacy works anyway as well. So the idea of it representing the good and the bad of science, that it can do great things, but it can also mess you up and do weird things and transform people -- as all science can be used for good or bad. So it's nice to have that organizing principal, but it wasn't like, "We must keep it at Oscorp." It flowed naturally from the story development.
