Marc Webb Teases Venom In Amazing Spider-Man 2?

This month marks the 25th anniversary of Venom, the symbiote foe of Spider-Man.

Well, Amazing Spider-Man 2 director Marc Webb tweeted "#happybirthday" along with the following image.


The image appears to be a #14 locker door (not a morgue - there's a keyhole), which is similar to a panel (via SSH) in the Brian Michael Bendis Ultimate Spider-Man comic book (below), which sees Peter and Eddie Brock discover the Venom experiment (the Ultimate Comics Venom origin is different than the regular version).


Could Marc Webb be adding Venom to the line-up? Perhaps as part of the Amazing Spider-Man 2 Sinister Six?

Or could this be a tease of what's to come as Sony has stated there are plans for a Venom movie, and producer Avi Arad hinted that it could merge with their Spider-Man movies as well.

Webb also previously tweeted "think bigger" to another tweet that read "@MarcW Isn't Making A Sequel. He's Mapping Out A Massive Spider-Man Universe."

So from that, we could take it to mean not just "Spider-Man."

But Venom?


The "Amazing Spider-Man 2" swings into theaters May 2nd, 2014 directed by Marc Webb starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Shailene Woodley, Jamie Foxx and Dane DeHaan.
