I was talking to my ex girlfriend, who's a HUGE Spiderman Fan and she's insisting that Topher Grace isn't playing Eddie Brock and that there's this big twist. Anyone hear anything about this, or am I way late on this? Who is he playing then? Hogoblin?



Kevin Kelly: "Mr. Austin, would you like to comment on Wade Keller's Take that endorsing the XFL hurts your anti-authority character?"

Steve Austin: "Oh shit, he actually said that? I thought the boys in the back were ribbing me!"

Kelly: "No, he really said that. Did they tell you the part about you sitting in the stands, looking all skeptical?"

Austin: "AHAHAHAHAHAHA. Yeah... oh man that was too much."

Everything I've seen insists that he's playing Eddie Brock/Venom, and I thought I read that he was introduced as the character at Comic-Con this year during a big roundtable of Spider-Man 3 actors.

The only thing I've read that might be a surprise to some is:

There's debate (or maybe not, I haven't kept up) as to whether he's playing the Ultimate Spider-Man version of Venom or the original comic version of Venom (or some hybrid).


Like I said, maybe this is old news, but that's the only real "controversy" I've read about Topher playing Eddie.

There is no controversy or twist. Except for some fanboys that are going nuts that someone with more muscles isn't playing Brock.

I was there at Comic Con. Grace is playing Brock.

I saw the symbiote drip onto Brock and turn him into Venom. Topher Grace is playing Eddie Brock. Eddie Brock is Venom. No question about it.

This is Venom.

Without revealing what's hidden under the spoiler tag, what's the difference between the two?

Wikipedia (en.wikipedia.org) has a good discussion on this. I'm not as well versed in the Spider-Man universe as I used to be, but I think it's accurate.

This isn't Ultimate Venom. Eddie Brock and Peter Parker are not childhood friends. The symbiote isn't going to be a lab project of Peter's dad.

And first of all, this isn't high school long lost buddy Eddie Brock. This is a heated rival journalist/photographer Eddie Brock.

Cartoon Brew has an awesome commentary up today about why animation buffs should show apathy towards this rather than outrage.
