Sony has announced the title of the sequel to Venom, the film about the enemy of Spider-Man will be called Venom: Let There Be Carnage and will be released in June 2021 instead of October 2020. A title that refers to the villain of the film, embodied by Woody Harrelson: Carnage.
Directed by Andy Serkis, who realizes for the first time an adaptation of comic book, the feature film is carried by Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Woody Harrelson and Naomie Harris (Shriek, the supervilaine). It is rumored that Tom Holland may appear in the feature now that Sony and Marvel Studios have signed a new agreement.
Remember, the post-generic scene from Venom introduced us to the ugly Cletus Kasady, aka Carnage, played by Woody Harrelson. Confirmed for Venom 2, Carnage should not be the only antagonist of this sequel which will be produced by Andy Serkis. If we believe Deadline, it will be accompanied by another super nasty, the so-called Shriek.
Appearing for the first time in “Spider-Man Unlimited # 1” in 1993, Shriek, also known under the names of Sandra Deel or Frances Barrison, is a former drug trafficker who discovers her powers after crossing the Dark Dimension of the Cloak and Dagger’s Cape. She sinks into madness and meets Carnage with whom she escapes from Ravencroft asylum. The duo, as romantic as they are violent, gathers other criminals around them to sow chaos.
No name is still circulating on the actress who could interpret the super villain. One thing is certain, Shriek will be a great ally for Carnage, himself already being an even more violent version of Venom in the line of symbiotes. The confrontation between the three heralds epic battles. We will have to wait a little longer since Venom 2 has not yet entered production.
Andy Serkis would have found Shriek’s face! According to Variety, Naomie Harris is in negotiations to play the supervillain Shriek in Venom 2 where she will be the ally of Carnage (Woody Harrelson), who will be the other big villain of the film. Naomie Harris (Moonlight) had already worked with Serkis on Mowgli, and plays Eve Moneypenny in James Bond from Skyfall.
In the comics, Shriek is a former narco-trafficker who discovers her powers after crossing the Dark Dimension of Cloak and Dagger’s Cape. She sinks into madness and meets Carnage with whom she escapes from Ravencroft asylum. The duo, as romantic as they are violent, gathers other criminals around them to sow chaos.
With Andy Serkis directing, we can understand that the performance capture of which he is one of the specialists will be at the heart of the film. The director will have the difficult task of matching (ideally surpassing) the success of the first film, which had brought in $ 855 million worldwide. We follow the adventures of Eddie Brock who finds himself with a symbiote in him which makes him become Venom, an entity which he sets out to control.
