Cinema is stocked to the brink with great villains, as well as mediocre and even ridiculous ones. Some of these are so iconic, we spend countless hours contemplating further adventures with these foes, perhaps even plotting them against heroes in other universes.

On this episode, with Venom conquering the box office, we decided to look at other villains that could benefit from a solo film or franchise. Surely there are more than just Eddie Brock’s alter ego?

Also this week: James Gunn to write Suicide Squad 2, Chris Evans retires as Captain America, Dresden Files and Chronicles of Narnia come to TV, and much more. Then we close out our episode with our Venom spoilercast, as we take a look at all aspects of the latest Marvel offering in the Spider-Man universe.
