Who Can Replace Topher As The Gooey Spawn Of Evil?A Venom spin off is in the works, because clearly everyone liked him more than Peter Parker in Spider-Man 3. This may be partly due to the fact that Topher Grace's acting completely eclipsed all three standard recurring characters thus far. Alas, the rumor is there will be no Topher in this Venom (not a big enough star). Although we still think Topher could carry a tentpole production (he was a lovely foil to Spidey), click through to see our suggestions for back-up Venoms. Leonardo DiCaprio: Who Can Replace Topher As The Gooey Spawn Of Evil? Why He's Destined To Don The Skin Tight Unitard: DiCaprio is a much better fit as Venom than as Captain America. Even though you may think he'd never do a movie like this, you could argue that Christian Bale opened the door for more A-listers to take super-roles. Why He'll Fall Flat On His Big Venom Grin It's still DiCaprio and my money is if he gets this role, he'll phone it in big time cause it's beneath him or something arty like that. Casey Affleck Who Can Replace Topher As The Gooey Spawn Of Evil? Why He's Destined To Don The Skin Tight Unitard: Showed us all he could play crazy in that ridiculous cowboy flick, so now it's his time to shine. Why He'll Fall Flat On His Big Venom Grin: Does anyone want to see another Affleck movie, even if it is the younger brother? Sam Witwer: Who Can Replace Topher As The Gooey Spawn Of Evil? Why He's Destined To Don The Skin Tight Unitard: He's going to be huge after The Force Unleashed as the secret apprentice. Huge I tell ya, huge. He's already proven that he can play the bad guy, what more do you need? Plus I'd pay to watch this guy read his mail for two hours, he's that good looking. Why He'll Fall Flat On His Big Venom Grin:Banking pretty hard on the fact that he will become able to carry a film based on a video game is a big risk. James McAvoy: Who Can Replace Topher As The Gooey Spawn Of Evil? Why He's Destined To Don The Skin Tight Unitard: Proved he could do action in Wanted, looks good in action, and is pretty decent actor. So he could pull off the crazy villain thing. Why He'll Fall Flat On His Big Venom Grin:McAvoy would need to go seriously dark for anyone to take him seriously in this role. I'm still used to seeing him in as the romantic lead, in spite of Wanted. [Hollywood Reporter]
