I think the biggest problem with 3 was that Rami didn't want to include Venom, and as a result the Venom story elements fell flat. It's hard to do things well when you have nothing but contempt for them. The whole black costume thing was bad. The way it was introduced. The way it changed Peter's personality. The fact that we only saw one relatively short battle with him in it, and in that battle it didn't really help him at all. The movie could have been much better if had been all red-and-blue Spidey against Sandman, with Osborn thrown in the mix.
I'm actually happy Rami killed Venom at the end, because this ensures Venom isn't in the next one, so Rami can focus on the villains he's actually passionate about.
