VIDEO GAMES: THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Will Be Linked To Symbiote And Doc Ock
IGN has revealed new information about The Amazing Spider-Man video game which reveals a connection between the game, the symbiote, and Doc Octopus. Read on for details.
IGN has revealed, through information gathered at this year's E3, that both the alien symbiote and Doc Ock are connected to The Amazing Spider-Man videogame.
Below is an excerpt from the actual article:
"...Oscorp physicist Dr. Otto Octavius dug into Curt Connors’ research as quickly as it became available to him. Not satisfied with simply infusing human DNA into a highly venomous black fat-tailed scorpion, Octavius also threw in a touch of a mysterious, organic “black goo” of unknown origin, which Oscorp had recently retrieved from one of the company’s fallen satellites in secret. The result was Scorpion..."
As you can see, it has revealed a backstory for the villain, Scorpion, not Scorpia as previously rumored, for the videogame. In doing so, it has revealed the presence of Doc Ock and the symbiote in the game. However, the article goes on to say that:
"This bio is intended only as back story. Neither Dr. Otto Octavius nor the “black goo” appear in the film The Amazing Spider-Man or its videogame."

its cool that they are at least mentioned, would love to see them in a sequel, especially venom
Oh god, they're going with the Mac Gargan Scorpion-Venom? What shit...
You don't say. All kidding aside this looks to be the "Arkham City" for spidey. it really sucks that Everything (exaggeration) has to be compared to batman all the time. This looks like a superb spiderman game. Easily looks to be the best.
I hope there is a classic spider-man skin for this game.
So once again Venom wouldn't get a fair shot?!
I see what they did there tho wit the combo.... not crazy about the idea tho
I am glad being black suit Spider-Man isn't in the game, feel it has been overdone, much in the same way as the character was in the comics.
Wait until the sequel to introduce the black suit and Venom.
Will Topher Grace voice Venom? I hope so. Nobody can do a better job than him.
I honestly think that the game creators are well aware of where the films are going so I'm assuming that there won't be a symbiote in any of the future films! Think about it...
Spider-Man 1 Game: No Doc Ock
Spider-Man 2 Game: No Venom, No sandman,
Spider-Man 3 Game: "Last Game/ Last Movie" so they decided to go all out with characters such as "The King Pin", "Lizard" , "Kraven" and the list goes on!
Mixed feelings on Venom, especially after the disaster of Spiderman 3. It would have to be done in a creative way of course. I'd prefer Ultimate with a mix of 616. And if Venom is brought to the big screen he needs to be HUGE. As big as he was in the Spectacular Spiderman television show, and no useless villain team-ups cause Venom don't need no damn help to fight Spiderman. He's already invisible to his spider-sense, bigger and stronger, physically. Need I say more? - - Anyway, I like the nods to Octavius and the symbiote. It's not important to have Venom right now in film or game. Give other villains a chance to shine. I personally want Electro and the Green Goblin to debut in games again. Update their costumes and origins and I'll be satisfied.
