I was thinking they could do something similar to the Black Suit arc from The Spectacular Spider-Man cartoon.Harry puts together a coalition of super-villains to take down Spider-Man, and they initially succeed in putting him on the ropes. Peter, already angry over losing Gwen, becomes increasingly frustrated, and Felicia Hardy - Harry's secretary/girlfriend - offers Peter the rope he needs to hang himself under the pre tense of betraying Harry. Peter jumps at the opportunity to take Harry and the Sinister Six down, and breaks into Oscorp, where he finds the Venom Project - a bioweapon created by his father as a cure for Norman Osborn's condition. The Venom Suit bonds to him and makes him stronger, but brings out his spiteful, aggressive side. Felicia, who has a thing for bad boys, starts falling for him for real and tries to bring out his dark side. Peter starts waking up exhausted, with photographs of Spider-Man savagely beating criminals and tearing the Sinister Six a new one appearing in the Daily Bugle despite him possessing no memories of doing those things. Peter realizes his hatred for Harry is turning him into a monster and expunges the Venom suit from himself, but not before ruining the life of a certain reporter who had looked up to him as a hero. As for Mary Jane Watson, her role is to help Peter get over Gwen's death - maybe not as a love interest just at this point, but to provide a comforting presence and a counterbalance to Felicia's corrupting influence.
It would work if they keep it to how Peter uses the black suit for the final battle because he needs the boost but show in how it alters his persona. Eddie Brock will be introduced in SM3. I'd like them to fix the slop that happened in Raimi's shitfest, but that was just unmanageable... My hope is that it goes with the same momentum as TaSM2. By this I mean we saw three of the six on screen in three we'll see the same set up with two villains + Osbourne and at the end a new baddie. But half way through the movie The Symbiote takes hold of him and the final swining though Manhattan would be in black suit. TASM4 woulf then be the Sinister Six film where at the end the clock tower scene takes place and the end swing is Venom. Now, for /that/ to work the relationship with Brock and Parker has to be set in though The Bugle but through fact that his shots never get front page despite his being senior photographer at The Bugle. I'd KILL to see Liam Helmsworth in the Brock shoes. Well After the Venom feature film, then move to the Clone Saga to introduce Kane as a new Spider. Come back and then Carnage followed by Toxin.
SM3 - road to S6 and Black Suit SM4 - S6 Black Suit --> Venom's birth SM5 - VENOM! SM6 - Clone Saga SM7 - Carnage SM8 - Toxin
that outline was all from my brain for the most part. This series follows the Ultimate comics almost to a T so for a concept idea that'd be the route. Either way, Sony has custody of all the Spider properties so expect future films to come from that universe the same way X-Men and Fantastic Four are connectedness to the same universe via Fox. So a F4 X-men cross over could happen in our lifetime. As for my proposed loose outline for a franchise, what would you propose?
that marvel save them from fox and sony while its still a bit of digity. they did greatt in the past but lately from a horrble reboot and shit on the source materal from both company. i donno what sheep would still support them.
