Which DC Movie Heroes Could Use One Of Marvel’s Symbiotes?

The world of comic books is completely filled with interesting and novel concepts and characters. One of the better ideas that has sprung up from the Marvel Universe is the symbiotes. The symbiotes started with Spider-Man’s black suit in the ’80s, which quickly morphed into the famous Venom. Venom spawned countless others like Carnage, Sleeper, and many more. Almost every big-time Marvel character has been bonded with a symbiote, at one time or another. However, they are an entirely Marvel creation, so no DC characters have yet had the honor.



Some DC film characters would definitely benefit from having a new, goopy, alien best friend. The symbiotes are absolutely explosive in live-action, as demonstrated by Spider-Man 3 and the Venom movies. Ideally, a symbiote either enhances a character or changes how they interact with the world. This can mean completely overhauling a character’s powerset, or complimenting the skills already there. Plus, there are usually some personality shifts. The symbiotes tend to prey on negative emotions and bring out the worst in their hosts.

James Gunn DCU is sure to bring in new characters. However, there are names from the Arrowverse that deserve a second chance as well.


10 1997’s Justice League Needs An Edge

Matthew Settle, John Kassir, Michelle Hurd, Kenny Johnston, Kimberly Oja, David Ogden Stiers

Appears In

Justice League of America

Released

1997

1997’s Justice League “movie” is one of the most forgotten pieces of DC media out there. It stars Flash, Martian Manhunter, and a couple of other lesser-known heroes. The team are all pretty underpowered compared to their comic counterparts. The Flash is noticeably slower than usual, and the resident Green Lantern mostly makes glowsticks.

These heroes could really use a little oomph. With all the multiverse shenanigans going on in comic book movies these days, it would be cool to see this team come back with a twist. Something like a symbiote that completely changes and updates the group’s powers would be the perfect change.

10 Facts to Know About DC’s The Authority

The Authority is getting their own film in the new DCU as well as appearing in Superman: Legacy. They are a unique team that many fans may not know.

Will Appear In

Untitled The Authority Film

Release

TBA

One of the more surprising announcements from DC’s upcoming movie slate was The Authority. While they’re certainly a cool team, they don’t have the same appeal as Batman and Superman. However, they do have some iconic characters, one of which is the cybernetically enhanced Midnighter.

Midnighter has strength, speed, and reflexes beyond the capabilities of regular humans. This makes him a more than capable fighter and combines well with his enhanced healing. A symbiote would really just enhance his already incredible powers, and potentially make him a threat for the whole DCU.

8 Deathstroke Didn’t Get A Chance

Justice League, Zack Snyder’s Justice League

Released

2017, 2021

Joe Manganiello’s version of Deathstroke only appeared at the tail end of Justice League. Allegedly, this was a tease for the Ben Affleck solo Batman film. Instead, audiences got about a minute and a half of Slade Wilson standing around on Lex Luthor’s lot. However, Deathstroke is a great DC anti-hero.

Deathstroke has, in recent years, ridden a line between hero and villain. He’s certainly no boy scout, but he’s still been willing to do the right thing. A symbiote would create an interesting dynamic with Deathstroke. It would definitely make the mercenary lean into his darker tendencies. Maybe it would also finally give him an edge against his usual foes.

7 Peacemaker Could Be Agent Venom

John Cena

The Suicide Squad, Peacemaker

Released

2021, 2022

Peacemaker has been one of the most successful and beloved Max shows. It picks up right where The Suicide Squad left off, and follows the continued adventures of Peacemaker. John Cena brings a lot to the role and really revitalizes the character. He’s got a cool gun and an assortment of specialized helmets. But a symbiote would really push him over the edge.

Peacemaker with a symbiote could become an Agent Venom-like character. Agent Venom is the moniker Flash Thompson used while bonded with the symbiote. He used the alien’s power to generate a lot of military weaponry, as well as store more on his person. Peacemaker could definitely benefit from the symbiote’s abilities.

10 Marvel Characters Who Would Make Great Robins

Between Peter Parker, Kitty Pryde, and X-23, there are many Marvel characters who would be great as Batman’s most popular sidekick.

Will Appear In

Batman: The Brave And The Bold

Release

TBA

Batman: The Brave And The Bold is a pretty exciting announcement from the new DCU slate. This will be the first time Robin has appeared on the silver screen in years, despite the character’s enduring popularity. Plus, the movie is set to feature Damian Wayne’s version of the character, the most recent and one of the most popular.

Damian Wayne would have an interesting relationship with a symbiote. The kid is already chock-full of rage and is struggling against his assassin training. A symbiote could exacerbate the struggle, which would give Damian an interesting character arc. On the other hand, it would also expand his arsenal. “The Blood Son” would become an even more efficient Robin, which he would definitely enjoy.

5 Cyborg Would Combine Machinery And Symbiote

Ray Fisher

Justice League, Zack Snyder’s Justice League

Released

2017, 2021

Ray Fisher really deserved to play Cyborg more. He was absolutely great in the role. Unfortunately, the character only appeared in Justice League and Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Cyborg is defined by the alien machinery that has bonded to his body. It offers him an array of powers, including flight, enhanced strength, and a giant laser cannon.

Cyborg and a symbiote would be an interesting combination. The symbiote would meld with Cyborg’s tech and make him capable of even more. He could use the symbiote to extend his arsenal even further. Between Cyborg’s innate control over the technological world and the symbiote’s abilities in the physical one, he would become an absolute powerhouse.

4 Jimmy Olsen Already Had Every Other Power

Superman: Legacy

Release

July 11, 2025

Skyler Gisondo is slated to play Superman’s pal Jimmy Olsen in the upcoming Superman: Legacy, which is sure to be a treat. Jimmy Olsen is one of the most iconic characters from Superman’s supporting cast, and it will be great to see him on the big screen again. Jimmy plays an important role as the only person Superman relaxes with.

Jimmy has a history of getting some weird superpowers. In fact, that was kind of his whole gimmick during his earlier appearances. Jimmy getting a symbiote would just be an extension of that theme. Sure, Jimmy isn’t exactly your typical symbiote host, but it would make for a pretty funny story. Plus, it would be neat to see Superman fight him.

3 Harley Quinn Is A Total Wildcard

Margot Robbie

Suicide Squad, Birds of Prey, The Suicide Squad

Released

2016, 2020, 2021

Margot Robbie’s turn as the indomitable Harley Quinn has been pretty universally praised. She’s appeared in both Suicide Squad movies, and Birds of Prey. She’s fun, spunky, and a total wildcard most of the time. While her morality has been questionable, DC has been pushing her as a more “heroic” character after her explosion of popularity.

Harley Quinn would be a perfect partner for one of the more colorful symbiotes. She could work well with someone like Carnage, or Scream. Harley has always had vague powers. She might be slightly enhanced, she might just be superb at gymnastics. Either way, a symbiote would really put her on another level, and it would be great to see two huge personalities interact.

10 Best Batman Crossovers, Ranked

Batman has appeared in many crossovers over the years, with the best of them going down among the best crossovers ever.

Appears In

The Batman

Released

2022

The Batman starring Robert Pattinson, was a smash success. It was a great representation of what Batman should be as a character and a great exploration of his relationship with Gotham City. Batman definitely has a dark side, but this latest movie shows why it is so important for the Dark Knight to be a beacon of hope for the city as well.

Batman and a symbiote would be a dangerous combination. The creatures are known to exasperate a character’s baser impulses, which could be a disaster. Ultimately, a symbiote would represent a new challenge for Batman to overcome. He would need to separate himself from his dark side, and truly hold himself to his code.

1 Blue Beetle Could Have Two Voices In His Head

Xolo Maridueña

Appears In

Blue Beetle

Released

2023

Blue Beetle came out at an unfortunate time. It was sandwiched between The Flash ending the DCEU and the start of the next shared universe. However, the Jaime Reyes version of Blue Beetle is a great character, who bonded with an alien symbiote that gives him a suit of powerful armor. Sound familiar?

Blue Beetle is already the product of a human and an alien symbiote. Throwing another alien being into the mix would certainly spice up the dynamic. The two aliens would be at war over how Jaime could go about being a hero the best, while the teenager just tries to do things his way.
