I don't care who gets cast: I don't want Venom in the reboot. I also don't want Green Goblin, FYI, because that fucker is played the hell out.

How about the Vulture? Or even the Owl, or Kingpin? Electro could be badass. Hell, I'd take Rhino.

My point is, few characters have as big a rogues gallery as Spider-Man. And the animal theme means they don't have to do the "my nemesis is my polar opposite" schtick, which I'm gonna tell you right now is my absolute least favorite superhero trope.
