I must say, it's a bit of an inigma as to what to expect from this wave, and the oddity of the announcement of this wave leads one to believe (me at least) that the intention is to fold this into the main MCU. I mean it's not like this was a hostile takeover like the mutant license. Sony and Marvel have been working together for a bit now. It's not inconceivable that negotiations started early enough during this project to at least loosely tie it to MCU. I would assume it's a strong possibility Venom could make it in to one of the upcoming Spider-Man movies, especially if there's gonna be some type of Sinister Six project.
As far as what other figs could make it into this wave, who knows. It's just so random. I suppose we can be sure to get at least one more symbiote, but if you ask me the entire symbiote thing has gotten way outta hand. Beyond Toxin I really could care less. To me, Lasher is already reaching and wash actually the lowlight of the Lizard wave. Maybe we can gets some characters through his Sinister Six connections or maybe his Thunderbolts or the symbiote's Dark Avengers connections. I could see possibly guys like Scorpion, Winter Soldier (comic), a Daken redo, a Ghost reissue would make sense, a new USAgent on a larger buck has been on my wish list for some time, Iron Patriot would be cool. Maybe some other guys from Spiderman's rogues gallery can make it in there as they tend to share allies & enemies. I could see maybe Tarantula, Cardiac, Vermin, the doors just wide open. Anyone past Carnage is gonna be a loose association at best, but at the same time I don't want some wave full of just a buncha symbiote clones when there are so many other characters worthy of plastic representation.
As far as BAF's go, again I just have to speculate according to who he's crossed paths with. They could do Kingpin, Mister Hyde, Skaar, I know a lot of people wouldn't be upset with an Atlas either. To me this is just a strange & random (I know I keep saying that but its the best description I have right now) wave to predict and my wish list is so long. I guess we'll just have to wait and see on this one. Like I said, my biggest fear is we get some lame wave full of any number of weird symbiote's that no one really cares about.
