24TOPHER GRACE AS VENOM
In last place is Topher Grace as the journalist-turned-alien-monster, Venom. The first few trailers for Spider-Man 3 teased Venom heavily and it got fans excited. What we got was a less-than-satisfactory adaptation of a classic member of Spidey's rogues' gallery. That's mostly the fault of director Sam Raimi, who admitted
that he hated the character.
Topher Grace did his best as Eddie Brock in Spider-Man 3. For example, he didn't go over-the-top in conveying the frustration and anger Brock felt toward Peter Parker, he just wasn't believable as a psychotic alien monster. He didn't seem to change much after getting the suit. At one point, he tells Peter, "I like being bad... it makes me happy!" But does it? His behavior didn't seem too different from before. You'd think all that power would make someone a little more excited. Venom was memorable because he was a classic villain, Eddie Brock as a character in that film was not.
