Fresh from the news that Tom Hardy has been cast as Venom, the tongues will soon start wagging as the speculation mounts that Carnage is set to be the main antagonist of the film. Quite frankly, it would be incredibly stupid if he wasn’t. Considering how both characters’ histories are so closely tied together, it can only be a matter of time before we see Cletus Kasady’s symbiote menacing it up on the cinema screen with his big daddy.
So, the big question is, who could portray the serial killer with a serious bloodlust? Undoubtedly, the actor chosen will need to be able to show off the craziness, violence, and downright psychopathic nature that we’ve come to expect from Carnage. This supervillain has no sense of morality, so we’ll need someone with major acting chops to convey this chilling message in a live-action adaptation.
There’s a host of talented actors who could easily take this role and make it their own. So, in an effort to make things easier, we’ve gone and narrowed down the list to 10 real possible contenders (no Jim Carrey here, folks). As always, we welcome your feedback – whether it’s positive or negative – about our choices, so don’t forget to leave a comment down below with your thoughts.
Well, let’s get to it then. The “carnage” starts on the next page.
