All the Venom fans have gotten some solid info about the movie’s sequel, including the villain who may be making an appearance.
An all-new report from Variety has now revealed that the second Venom film is now in the works, with Kelly Marcel who will pen this sequel. This report had hinted a few of the characters who will return, and these included Anne Weying, played by Michelle Williams and Cletus Kasady aka, Carnage played by Woody Harrelson.
While many of the fans have assumed that Cletus may make an appearance in the second movie, especially after his introduction in Venom’s post-credits scene, it now looks like this fact has been confirmed.
It is not clear as of now what shape Venom 2 will take up with the director, Ruben Fleischer possibly not even returning due to a few conflicting schedules with Zombieland 2. Fleischer and Harrelson’s rapport had factored into the way that Cletus had been introduced in the movie, Venom:
“I obviously have a close relationship with Woody,” Fleischer had said.
“And he’s one of my favourite actors, if not my favourite actor, and he’s just also an incredible human being. So, when we were thinking about including that scene and laying the groundwork for a potential sequel, he was the first person I thought of and a just because selfishly I’m really excited to work with him again, whether it’s in Zombieland 2 or the potential sequel to this film. But if you think about Natural Born Killers and Mickey, the character he played in that film, I feel like there’s a real lineage that you can trace from Mickey to Cletus, and I also think that he hasn’t gone dark in that way for a while.”
“You know what? When you hear Venom…forget Venom. When you hear, Carnage, the only thing you can think of is R. But, if you know his story, if you really know the comic, there’s no R here.” Avi Arad, the producer, said.
“He’s a tortured soul. It’s not about what he does, because we never have to show the knife going from here to there, and the blood is pouring. What you have to show is, what is the motivation? Was he born like that, or it’s someone we should feel for because if you are succeeding to make a villain someone, you can feel for, jackpot.”
Venom is now available on DVD, BluRay, and Digital.
