This Animatronic Venom Was Nearly Used in Sam Raimi’s ‘Spider-Man 3’! [Video]

Sam Raimi‘s Spider-Man 2 is easily one of the greatest comic book movies ever made, which is why the third film in his series is one of the most disappointing.

Spider-Man 2 also featured revolutionary game-changing special effects that brought Marvel’s Doc Ock to life and promised to do the same with Venom in Spider-Man 3. Unfortunately, the end product was nothing short of a CG disaster, not to mention the critical miscasting of Topher Grace as Eddie Brock/Venom.

But that wasn’t always the plan, as revealed in the below YouTube video that shares a look at an animatronic Venom created and used in early screen tests.

According to the video, the impressive animatronic was created by Frontline and once was covered by foam latex that had either been removed or rotted over the years.

The animatronic is incredibly detailed and looks way more in line with Todd McFarlane‘s creation than what Raimi ended up putting on the screen in 2007.

Interestingly, the host notes that this animatronic was actually used in early promotion for the film, featured in the very first teaser trailer that initially debuted in front of San Diego Comic-Con attendees back in July 2006.

It’s well known that Raimi wasn’t a fan of Venom and was forced to cram the character into the film by producer Avi Arad, who would eventually shoulder all of the blame.

Would an animatronic Venom have made Spider-Man 3 work better? Unlikely, but at least he would have looked cool.
