Each week Sony’s Spider-Man spin-offs get more interesting. We just got word that Venom movie just got it’s main villain.
Are you wondering which of Venom movie nemesis will be facing off with him in the upcoming Spider-Man spin-off? Read on…
CelebNMovies247.com just got word that the now R-rated Venom movie that is set for release next year will be featuring non other than Carnage, aka Cletus Kasad.
Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) will be at the helm of this R Rated Marvel movie. Carnage will be introduced in the Venom movie.
The studio is currently developing several movies, which will be centered on various characters from the Spider-Man universe, but may or may not actually include Spider-Man. The news of Carnage was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter, who recently spoke with Sony’s Tom Rothman about the Marvel Universe.
Tom Rothman explains:
“As for the expansion plans, Tom Hardy is starring in Venom, dated for Oct. 5, 2018, which will also feature the villain Carnage. A source says Holland is only contractually obligated to Spider-Man 2 and 3, but the intention is to bring him into the spinoffs and possibly other Marvel films (he is currently shooting Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War).”
In case you’re not familiar with Carnage, he is one of the most ruthless and violent villains in Spider Man’s Marvel Universe. Not only that, Venom teamed up with Spider-Man, Black Cat, and Cloak and Dagger, in order to stop Carnage.
Who is Carnage?
“Cletus Kasady became a serial killer. He was then captured and sent to Ryker’s Island prison for 11 murders, though he bragged about killing a dozen more, where he shared a cell with Eddie Brock, the host of the alien symbiote that turns into the supervillain Venom. When Brock’s symbiote soon returned to be bonded again, allowing Venom to escape prison, the symbiote unknowingly left its offspring in the cell; due to its alien mindset, the symbiote felt no emotional attachment to its offspring, regarding it as insignificant, and thus never communicated its existence to Brock via their telepathic link. The new symbiote then bonded with Kasady, transforming him into Carnage.”
It was also reveled that the Sinister Six movie apparently got scrapped. However, bringing Carnage to Venom movie and Spider-Man: Homecoming bringing in Vulture and Shocker. So where does that leave Kraven the Hunter and Mysterio?
Basically, they are expanding the realm of Spider-Man this time around to give fans more:
Amy Pascal explains:
“It will all take place in the world we are now creating for Peter Parker. It’ll be adjunct to it, it may be different locations, but it will all still be in the same world and they will be connected to each other as well.”
“There’s always a chance. I think one of the things that Kevin has done with Marvel that was so brilliant is by bringing the fans along and making each movie seem like a chapter in a book. That you have to read that chapter in order to go forward, and I think the investment that fans get to feel in being part of a larger story and understanding what’s happening, I think is something that I know Sony would want in everything.”
