comic book by the writer of Babylon 5.
Epic comic book = epic movie
Easily at least a trilogy.
Spiderman with his black costume.
At least make 2 movies with this before having Venom enter the picture.
Have him get the costume from a meteor or something at the end of a movie. (kind of hard to tie in Secret Wars)
Sow seeds of discontent within Eddie Brock (at the newspaper) during the black costume tenure. Spidey will fight some new villain during this time as well. Sandman would be one excellent choice (Special effects baby!!!. Spidey will also be a little more brutal but won't know why.
Have Spidey get the costume off (sound blast) at the end of the movie right before the movie with Venom. (actually show the costume crawling away as the movie goes off). Introduce Cletus Kassidy as a character during this movie (in insane asylum)
When Spidey "beats" Venom, have a piece of the Venom costume, crawl off and go into an insane asylum.
After the Venom/Spidey movie have one more movie then introduce Carnage (from the insane asylum). This would have excellent special effects (Carnage changes his costume to make stabbing weapons).
