Despite the initial concerns of Spider-Man fans and the strong criticism from critics, Venom eventually became a monster sleeper. Obviously, this movie reflects the tone of the 1990s comics to some extent, and the super villain/anti-hero is ultimately what the audience has been looking for, combining the crazy Tom Hardy performance with some interesting actions sequence. Now, the trailer for the sequel has arrived, which shows that the next one will be a big step forward than the first movie.
Sometime after the first movie, the serial killer Cletus Kasady escaped from prison and started a new rampage. When the already dangerous criminal connection with Symbiote turned into a carnage, things got worse and worse, and only Eddie Brock/Venom could stop him. Check it out below:
Venom: Let There Be Carnage is directed by Andy Serkis, written by Kelly Marcel, who was one of the co-writers on the original film, and produced by Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, Amy Pascal, and Hutch Parker. Returning from the first Venom movie are Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock/The Symbiote/Venom, Michelle Williams as Anne Weying, Reid Scott as Dr. Dan Lewis, and Woody Harrelson as Cletus Kasady/Carnage, the film’s central villain who was initially teased in the mid-credits scene. Confirmed to join the cast is Naomie Harris as Frances Louise Barrison/Shriek, Carnage’s partner in crime. Other actors involved with the film in undisclosed roles include Stephen Graham, Sean Delaney, and Larry Olubamiwo.
Aside from „Venom: Let There Be Carnage“, Sony is also keeping busy with Spider-Man: No Way Home, set to release at the very end of the year. The sequel’s release date puts it in fairly close proximity with Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, another superhero movie based on a Marvel Comics character.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage will release in theaters on September 24, 2021.
