September 17, 2014 07:01:30 GMT

Alex Kurtzman gave another update on "Venom Carnage" movie. "The Amazing Spider-Man" co-scribe who gets promoted to serve behind the lens for the Spidey spin-off says he is still deciding who will wear the Venom symbiote. In the comic books, the suit has been worn by a series of characters like Peter Parker, Eddie Brock and Harry Osborn.

"I would not say it's an easy choice," he said. "I would say that there are quite a few things about Venom that are interesting. Venom had several different iterations, and there are several things that are very unique, interesting and specific. And so I think we all want to make sure that we're making the right choices for a character that's so beloved."

She begins by criticizing the plot. "Sure, it's sort of hidden, but the search for a man/love/Prince is still the reigning plot line in the movie, as it is with pretty much all movies for young people which are animated," she wrote. "The sister's desire to marry this guy she just met, and the other sister getting mad at her - we still have a plot about the identification of a woman being based on her desire and search to meet a man."

Ben Affleck Says He Relates to Batman's Anger Issues in 'Batman v Superman'

September 16, 2014 08:33:01 GMT

Ben Affleck says Batman is a perfect role for him because they both have something in common, that is a "character flaw" when it comes to dealing with their rage. The actor reveals he has a bit of moody side, and he says it's good for his portrayal as the Dark Knight who has a lot of bottled-up anger.

"I think it's a necessity, historically, in the tradition of these films," the star who plays a murder suspect in David Fincher's "Gone Girl" explains in a new interview with The Sunday Times. "For me, anger is so deeply buried and contained that when it does kind of come out, it comes out in stronger bursts."

"Once we got past the list of people we could cast as the different characters in the film, once we got past one or two names which made them very comfortable, making a movie at that price, it became this bizarre endeavour to find which three names you could rub together to make platinum."
