Venom: Let There Be Carnage Producer Tease Eddie Brock’s Ultimate Adversary

Venom: Let There Be Carnage

Wherever Venom goes, Carnage doesn’t tend to be too far behind. Spider-Man is also typically in the mix, but Sony’s shared Marvel universe hasn’t quite reached that stage. Though, the recent rebranding made clear it is happening sooner rather than later.

When Ruben Fleischer’s Venom was gearing up for release in 2018, many fans wondered why Riot had been chosen as the villain at the expense of Cletus Kasady’s alter ego. After all, Riot was Eddie Brock’s most famous enemy. When Woody Harrelson and his distracting wig made a surprise cameo to set up second installment Let There Be Carnage, the answer became clear. And the film is now less than four weeks away from release.

Avi Arad, who knows a thing or two about overstuffing a comic book franchise with symbiotes having requested Sam Raimi include Venom in Spider-Man 3, teased that Carnage is Venom’s ultimate adversary.

“Carnage is who the fans have been waiting for, finally making his big-screen debut. He’s Venom’s ultimate adversary, stronger and more violent in every way. It doesn’t help that serial killer Cletus Kasady is Carnage’s host, enhancing his maniacal worldview into something incredibly sinister. In the comics, Carnage is Venom’s offspring, his ‘son,’ if you will, which makes the conflict between them far greater.”

General audiences might not be so clued up on lore. After all, Venom: Let There Be Carnage isn’t part of the all-conquering Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the second chapter in Sony’s Spider-Man Universe; it doesn’t come with the same built-in awareness and cultural cache.

Fingers crossed that Arad has stayed away from production. Though, leaving the cast and crew of the movie to do their jobs completely unimpeded to the best of their abilities.
