Could Topher Grace Carry an Entire Venom Movie?

To be honest, I actually think a Spider-Man spinoff focusing solely on Venom would be a good way to rejuvenate the Spider-Man franchise, since Spidey's stories themselves seem to be getting pretty tiresome. It seems like this idea is going to work out well for the X-Men series, as they devote one whole movie to Wolverine's story.

However, while it sounds like the bigwigs at Sony are interested in the Venom movie idea, they're not convinced that Topher Grace — who played Venom in the last Spidey flick — could carry an entire blockbuster superhero movie.

What do you think? Would you want to watch Topher venomize for a full movie? And if not Topher, then who?

He'd carry another movie better than Wimpy Maguire could, but I'm not sure it's such a great idea.

i cannot begin to express how incredibly disappointed in the casting for venom. he's my favorite spiderman villian, yet they get an actor known for his dorky and quirky personality traits? yeah, i was pissed. if they give him a whole movie as venom, i'll boycott

I adore him so very much, but I don't think he's enough of a name to carry a spinoff, though he's talented. But all superhero films are total hits or misses and when it's focused on a villain... that just sounds very complicated.

I like Topher but he's a best friend not a leading man.

I'm bothered by topher grace starting with his need to call himself topher instead of chris or christopher (he's soo artsy) and second by his lack of acting talent

Topher is awesome. I quit watching 70's show cuz he left. He is great at comedy AND at action.

I thought Topher Grace was so lackluster as Eddie Brock /Venom and he was only on screen for 30 minutes I can't imagine a full 2 hours of him on the screen.

Having read Spider-Man for many years, I always thought Topher should have played Peter Parker. Toby Maguire is completely uninteresting to me and I found it difficult to watch him play my favorite superhero. So I would definitely support an all-Topher movie.

maybe - i'm not so sure about it. he has held lead roles in movies before but none of them have ever been major blockbusters, and doing a spin-off to one of the highest grossing franchises kind of puts an expectation out there. we'll have to see i guess - cause you never know. he might step up and blow us all away.

Spiderman 3 sucks. He doesn't need a spinoff movie.

He's a good actor but he was a HORRIBLE choice for Venom. He just doesn't have that evil side (nor did Tobey Macguire, for that matter.)
