Re: How IRON MAN 2 ruined Jon Favreau's relationship with Marvel

Wow Iron Man fans just won't let go of the Demon in the Bottle story. I still maintain there are enough elements from that arc that have made it into the films i.e. Tony's drinking problem which has been touched on. As for Venom being one of the good parts of Spider-Man 3 did you watch the movie? The build up to Eddie becoming Venom was pretty good I'll grant you that but the actual performance from Topher as Venom was horrid and bizarre. Venom isn't a humorous character except for maybe the odd well timed one timers (I always chalked that up from the symbiont taking pieces of Peter's humor) and the bad sexual jokes were just bad and had no place in the film. I agree with Sandman. Sandman was useless and a fine example of how not to adapt a comic book villain to the silver screen.
