venom 2018 rating – Michelle Williams Officially Returning For Sequel

Presumably returning to his career as an investigative journalist, Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) is summoned to San Quentin, where Harrelson’s character — a serial killer who refuses to speak to anyone but Brock — waits in a cage for the reporter.

venom 2 trailer real – New ‘Venom 2′ Plot Details Concerning Carnage & Shriek

Venom 2Naomie Harris could be joining the Sony Venom universe. Presumably, unless Disney and Sony end up mending fences (not likely, considering the tone of finality in Kevin Feige’s comments at the D23 Expo), Spider-Man’s extraction from the MCU kills any possibility of, for example, Venom meeting the Avengers. If that’s the case, then Venom 2 could end up being a lot bloodier than its predecessor.

Like Venom, Carnage is a Symbiote — the race of aliens that bond with their hosts and grant them superpowers. In the comics, the Carnage Symbiote is Venom’s offspring and bonds with Brock’s cellmate, Kasady (the comic books and movie diverge when it comes to Brock’s origin story; Brock isn’t a criminal in the movie).

Michelle Williams, who stars as Eddie Brock’s ex-wife Anne Weying, will also return. The actress told Yahoo! , simply “I’m in.” The sequel will hopefully turn the question mark over her relationship with Eddie at the conclusion of the first movie into a full stop. Or an ellipsis. Or some more positive punctuation mark.

If you’re a Marvel Comics fan, then the hints about Woody Harrelson’s role in Venom’s mid-credits scene weren’t very subtle. No one in the scene refers to the character by name. The closest they get is when the prison guard who leads Eddie Brock to Harrelson’s cell calls the prisoner “Red.” That nickname, Harrelson’s curly red wig, the fact that he’s a serial killer, and his closing line (“There’s gonna be carnage”) point pretty hard to Marvel supervillain Cletus Kasady, a.k.a. Carnage.

It’s fine, but Captain Marvel” feels like a movie from before Marvel Studios really hit its stride in Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Right now it’s a movie that seems very much out of place. Whether or not Cletus already has the Carnage symbiote at this point in the film remains to be seen, but it sounds like he hasn’t transformed into the film’s big-bad just yet.

Special thanks to all the editors whose footage was used to create this concept trailer of what Venom 2: Carnage might become. I do not own any of this footage, all credit goes to the rightful owners. The rights to Venom and Carnage are the property of Marvel and Sony.

That line is an on-the-nose reference that confirms Kasady’s identity. In the comics , he merges with a symbiote named Carnage, a kind of “offspring” that Venom shed once while breaking Brock out of prison. Carnage bonds on a deep level with Kasady, developing violent abilities that even Venom doesn’t possess. It’s uncertain how much of Carnage and Kasady’s storyline will be pulled from the source material for Venom 2, but we can be certain that it’s going to bloody and violent as all get out.

You could certainly make the argument that “Infinity War” does not really hold up on as a complete movie on its own, because it kinda begins with the second act. But I don’t care. The culmination of this ten-year shared universe experiment should stand on the shoulders of the movies that came before it. The fact that it packs such a profound emotional punch, however, is what really makes it work.

Deadline has the scoop on Stephen Graham joining the Venom 2 cast. Graham is one of those great character actors who always makes an impression, even if his role is small. He was Al Capone on Boardwalk Empire, and has parts in Rocketman, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Snatch, and many more. He’ll next be seen in the dark reimagining of A Christmas Carol due out on FX this month. At the moment, though, he’s getting everyone’s attention as the short-tempered Tony Pro in The Irishman. His part isn’t huge in the movie, but he makes the most of it, smacking ice cream out of Al Pacino’s hand, showing up late for meetings while wearing shorts, and chomping on cigars.

The Potential Plot: The first movie opened up a number of possibilities for a sequel, including Venom battling against other symbiote aliens like the villain Carnage, to be played by Woody Harrelson. Carnage has been featured in numerous comic book storylines with Venom, the most well-known being Maximum Carnage, which featured a prison for supervillains. Carnage creates a team of villains including Shriek, Demogoblin, Carrion, and Doppelganger. Shriek is expected to appear in Venom 2, which could make an adaptation of this story likely for the sequel.

As Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige stressed on multiple occasions in the lead up to Venom’s release , Hardy’s Venom and Holland’s Spidey exist in distinct universes (Sony’s Universe of Marvel Characters and the Marvel Cinematic Universe respectively); however, Feige’s stance appeared to change somewhat this summer after Disney and Sony renegotiated a new deal on the Spider-Man movie rights, with the producer stating that Spider-Man happens to be the only hero with the superpower to cross cinematic universes”.

The recently Morbius trailer revealed direct connections to the Spider-Man films with a cameo from Michael Keaton’s Vulture. While there have been rumblings about Spider-Man showing up in the Venom sequel that has yet to be confirmed.

Tom Hardy will return to play Eddie Brock, a hapless journalist whose body bonds with an alien, providing him with superhuman power and strength. Serkis revealed that Hardy is already at work helping to write the story. With Andy Serkis at the helm, the new Venom sequel is charging full steam ahead, and here are ten things we wish are included in the film.

Venom 2 will include fellow Spider-Man villain Shriek in addition to Carnage; in the Marvel Comics, the villains are in a romantic relationship. That’s exactly what Venom” does. Not only does the alien symbiote decide not to eat Eddie Brock’s liver, or any other part of his body, but he even insists that they will co-exist in relative harmony.

According to Deadline, Carnage’s romantic interest from the Marvel comics will be joining the line-up for the sequel. Following the success of Tom Hardy’s Spider-Man spin-off Venom, it should be no surprise that a sequel is already in the works.


Venom 2” is likely to be released in October 2020. The movie will mark Serkis’ third directorial effort after Breathe” and Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle.” Williams can next be seen opposite Julianne Moore in the Sundance melodrama After the Wedding,” opening August 9.

With that said, Venom only loosely follows its source material, and Kasady’s transformation into Carnage might not go by the book. And depending on how well Venom does at the box office, a sequel isn’t necessarily a given. But if one does happen, Carnage is ready to go.

In the film, Cletus Kasady (played by Woody Harrelson) is set be executed by the state of California for multiple murders committed and escapes Ravencroft Institute For The Criminally Insane alongside Frances Louise Barrison aka Skriek (reportedly played by Naomie Harris).

Just like the character of Eddie Brock that he portrays onscreen, Hardy has occasional superhero moments offscreen as well. In April 2017, Hardy made headlines when he reportedly chased down a man who ran away after crashing a stolen moped in London. Hardy apparently chased after the perpetrator on foot, pursuing him for a while in the city before eventually catching up to and apprehending the alleged thief. Hardy also patted down the man before turning him over to the local authorities when they arrived on the scene.


In October 2018, Venom producer Avi Arad told Collider that — in spite of the inclusion of the villain Carnage, who is a symbiote linked to a prolific serial killer — the sequel would likely be PG-13 just like its predecessor. However, with Marvel and Sony parting ways , there’s some speculation that Sony will follow the example of Deadpool and Logan to make Venom 2 an R-rated superhero flick.


Michelle Williams is officially set to return for Venom 2 Williams often appears in critically acclaimed films, and has even been nominated for four Academy Awards, but she also appeared in her first superhero movie just last year. Ruben Fleischer’s Venom introduced Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, while Williams played his love interest Anne Weying.

Therefore, not only is the jury is still out on what kind of Spider-Man will be incorporated into ‘Venom 2,’ if a deal closes for Holland, it does not seem likely the ‘Venom’ films will be canon to the MCU. Directed by Andy Serkis and once again starring Tom Hardy, Venom 2 is scheduled to open in theaters on October 2, 2020.

Insiders claim that Sony Pictures is negotiating a cameo role for Holland in the Venom sequel that is currently in production. Sony has yet to confirm the rumors. Venom 2 started filming in November, with the movie presumably aiming for a October 2020 release date.

The scene is animated and centers on a young boy whom comic fans will quickly recognize as Miles Morales , a Spider-Man who originated in an alternate Marvel universe. Morales was ultimately absorbed into the main universe’s canon, thanks to dimensions collapsing and other comics hijinks. The credits scene is an extended look at Sony’s upcoming film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse , which arrives in theaters on December 14, 2018.

Right now the role is not filled, the net is cast wide toward many kinds of actresses,” a source explained. The filmmakers are allegedly looking mostly at unknowns right now.” Andy Serkis will take on directorial duties in place of Ruben Fleischer, who directed the first film.

Black Widow is finally getting a long-overdue solo movie. Scarlett Johansson has appeared in six Marvel movies, beginning with Iron Man 2 in 2010, but she has never played the lead. Black Widow will be a prequel, set after the events of Captain America: Civil War but before Thanos fights the Avengers in Avengers: Infinity War. Black Widow is on the run, a fugitive from the law after she decides to help Captain America in Civil War, and travels to Budapest to confront the secrets of her past.

This mansion estate, now in ruins, is where Cletus Kasady grew up as a child. A number of years ago, a fire gutted the institution resulting in the death of its disciplinarian administrator. Although no evidence was found, it is suspected that Cletus Kasady may have had something to do with the fire. When Kasady became the super-villain known as Carnage, he had his first encounter with Spider-Man in this building.

With Riz Ahmed’s Carlton Drake (who eventually fused with the symbiote Riot) out of the picture after, uh, exploding inside a spaceship towards the end of the first film, Eddie and Venom’s initial nemesis will most likely not be back. Luckily, Venom’s mid-credits scene was a strong, bankable indicator as to who is going to fill the villain void in the sequel.

Venom 2 is currently filming and is set for an October 2, 2020 release date. Check out our 2020 Release Schedule to see all of the big movies headed to theaters next year. The success of Warner Bros. Joker has made Sony’s Venom producers rethink the rating of the next film.
