"I like being bad. It makes me happy."
—Eddie telling Spidey that he enjoys his villainy.

Eddie Brock/Venom is the main antagonist in the filmSpider-Man 3. He is played by Topher Grace.


Like his comic-self, Brock was once a highly respected photographer whose career was left in disgrace as a result of Spiderman.

While praying at a church, at the same time Spiderman was removing the symbiote costume, the church bells's ringing caused the symbiote to fuse with Brock instead, granting him new superpowers and resulting in the birth of Venom, the most dangerous enemy Spiderman had ever encountered.
