A fine cinematic moment. The entire film was brilliantly crafted. Still, Bale always appears so calm. Does he have the ENERGY to be Carnage?

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH. You'd look at Cleutus and see Ace Ventura. It'd be awful. sick

Well if there is one thing that the 2 spidey movies have proven to me, its that their casting agents are not stupid. Molina and DeFoe are both excellent choices for their respective roles, and few can argue otherwise. I have faith that, should they do Venom in a future movie, they will get it as close as they can. I like the idea as Gary Busey's kid as Carnage, tho. Busey is friggin crazy, and if the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, then it'd be a good fit.

I'd say Jim Carrey is past the point in his career where he could do a good Carnage. Maybe 10 to 15 years ago, but alas, time travel is impossible. And even then, he was a bit to goofy.

It seems that there are no actors nowadays that have the right ability. I would cry if it was Vin, since he has the acting ability of a pigme spearchucker from some jungle. He is a good action hero, and he may fit the image, but as far as the sheer talent for filling the character out, he just doesn't have it. However, I can't really think of anyone else who could fit the bill, so maybe my argument means nothing.

Like I said before and I'll say it again they are better off picking an unknown.

It isn't so much a matter of picking an unknown as avoiding someone exceedingly well known. Look at the choices for the villains in the last two movies. Dafoe and Molina are both talented, recognizable actors, but they're not superstars. As such, they have to get by more on their acting chops, which ultimately benefits the characters they portray.

Now that I see what Everbeck looks like, I'm a little more assured that he at least looks the part. I am a little concerned about him being a bit too young for Brock, but that's a relatively minor quibble. Whether or not he can act--and perhaps more importantly, whether or not he can act like Brock/Venom--is the real question.

If I were making the decision, though, I'd recommend Nick Chinlund for the part. Good actor, looks the part, recognizable but not a headliner, great voice for the character, and fairly charismatic to boot. Compare his picture here with the one of Brock in badsymbiote's sig to see the resemblance. Any comments on the suggestion?

The man behind Darth Maul (vocally). He's got a voice like gravel. Like heavy gravel. He rocks.

I know I'm prolly gonna get killed for this. Brock/Venom should be played by a B-movie actor *koff* Bruce Campbell *koff koff* Why? Because, as you plainly saw with 'Snooty Usher,' Bruce is completly capable of playing a charismatic "villain." Look at Evil Dead...there's a guy who was having a bad day, went villain for a tiny bit and then became a hero. If you express any distaste...just tell me, I welcome all opinons.

Chinlund or Everbeck. Those guys are both actors, and they are both luscious. Mmmmm. Either one would make a fine adddition to the cast.

I don't think that would a very good choice because it would be the third different character Bruce plays in three Spider-Man movies! Besides that your right he can pull of both a good guy role as well as bad one as we have seen before in Army Of Darkness where he played two characters Good Ash and Bad Ash.

What about Ron Perlman... He's a very underrated actor. Played in such movies as Blade 2, and the recent Blockbuster Hellboy. He's not a pretty boy, and is pretty old, which Im sure both can be fix by the make up ppl... but i think he'd a good fit for Brock/venom...Oh and he is pretty buff!

I don't think they would pick him since they probably want a young person like Tobey or something. You know what maybe if those Hollywood big shots read our oppinions they would learn a thing or two about casting actors.

Too old IMO.

How about Brock Lesnar? He's even got half the name big grin

Oh oh wait, give it to the Rock! The Rock will tell Tobey where he can stick that webbing.
