Let there be more Venom: Let There Be Carnage on a TV site releasing new footage from the Sony-Marvel movie. The next installment in Sony’s Spider-Man Universe, Gift 2 pits symbiotic host Eddie Brocks (Tom Hardy) mortal protector against the escaped serial killer Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson), who becomes a living weapon when he attaches himself to the ultra-deadly Carnage symbiote. Before Venom swings into the cinemas for another symbiotic showdown on October 1, you should see a screaming new look at Shriek (Naomie Harris) and her killer accomplices ahead of Venom and Carnage’s clash in Venom: Let There Be Carnage.
“Eddie and Venom have been living together and sharing a body for a while now. They know each other from the inside out, literally. And like any nearby life situation, their ticks and weaknesses are starting to get a little thin on each other,” screenwriter Kelly Marcel, who helped write Gift 2 story with star and producer Hardy, said in production notes from Sony. “They have been forced together through circumstances, and this film begs the question of whether there is a will to save the relationship or go their separate ways. Are they just cohorts through coincidences, or do they really belong together?”
As the “odd couple” struggles with growing pain more than a year after bonding in the 2018s Married, their ultimate opponent turns out to threaten everything they love: the serial-slaughtering carnage.
“Carnage is the one fans have been waiting for and finally debuted on the big screen,” said Avi Arad, producer of Married and SSMU’s forthcoming Morbius. “He’s Venom’s ultimate opponent, stronger and more violent in every way. It doesn’t help that serial killer Cletus Kasady is Carnage’s host who amplifies his insane worldview into something incredibly scary. In comics, Carnage is Venom’s offspring – his ‘son,’ if you want – which makes the conflict between them far greater. ”
