This mass-murderin’ monstrosity took evil to a whole new level when he was first introduced, and even made Venom seem positively logical by comparison. By bonding with Cletus Kassidy the symbiote took an already unhinged killer and imbued him with incredible powers of strength, speed, and shape-shifting – turning his body into a living weapon!
How do you begin to describe Venom? He’s part antagonist, part anti-hero. He’s part man, part monster. He’s one of Spider-Man’s most dangerous foes, but he’s also sometimes a grudging and reluctant ally. Whatever he is, Venom’s larger than life personality and twisted appearance has made him incredibly popular with many of the artists and designers here at Sideshow – so for us, adding him to our rogues gallery has been a true labor of love!
“See, this is what I’m talking about! NO ONE takes crazy Eddie Brock seriously.” – Edward Brock
Developed and manufactured in partnership with Prime 1 Studio, we are proud to present Anti-Venom. Eddie Brock was debonded from the Venom symbiote, traces of it were left in his body. Later, suffering from cancer, Brock started working as a volunteer in the F.E.A.S.T. Center. Martin Li, the alter-ego of Mr. Negative, and founder of F.E.A.S.T. used his powers to cure Eddie’s cancer. In the process, he accidentally infused the remnants of the symbiote in Eddie’s bloodstream with his power and fused them to his white blood cells, creating a new hybrid symbiote which manifested when the Venom symbiote attempted to leave its then-current host and return to Eddie. This new symbiote had powerful healing powers and other powers that differ from the Venom symbiote, producing antibodies that can cure any known disease and remove any other impurities within a human body. Unlike other symbiotes, this symbiote is completely mindless and Eddie Brock is in full control of his actions. Continue reading

A month ago, while promoting his passion project Live by Night — which he directed, wrote, produced, and starred in — on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Ben Affleck confirmed that he would be directing The Batman, his first standalone film as the Caped Crusader.
However, after Live by Night bombed at the box office — causing a $75 million loss for Warner Bros. — Affleck reportedly experienced a crisis of confidence, questioning whether or not he could simultaneously direct and star in a big-budget superhero movie. In the end, he chose to step down as director of The Batman, citing his desire to focus on the acting side of the role. And according to recent reports, Matt Reeves, the director behind Cloverfield (2008) and Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014), will take the helm.
While many of us had hoped that would put an end to all the drama surrounding The Batman, John Campea is now claiming that three separate sources have told him over the past four days that Affleck no longer wants to be The Dark Knight in the DCEU. Continue reading

If you’ve ever mistaken a photo of an action figure for a movie still, you might have been looking at something made by Hot Toys. Based out of Hong Kong, Hot Toys has been producing high-end Star Wars figures since 2014, covering the entire Star Wars saga in 1/6 and 1/4 scales. Its work is nothing short amazing, a testament to the growth of what’s possible in a collectible. Face sculpts, from Han Solo to Jyn Erso from the new Rogue One line, that look real; outfits and accessories, like Luke Skywalker’s cloak or Rey’s Jakku tatters, made of actual, weathered cloth and leather. Indeed, if Kenner marks the start of the evolutionary Star Wars toys chart, Hot Toys is somewhere near the end. Continue reading
