In the first Venom film, Eddie Brock is described as being able to lead a normal life. Although sometimes he eats criminals.
Now, Venom 2 has been introduced. The trailer for the sequel to Venom: Let There Be Carnage has just been released and shows the difficulties of Eddie Brock and his symbiote.
Eddie looked like he was tired of hunting down baddies to eat. He returns to being a loser, even having a strange relationship with Venom. But there’s a lot more going on here than just relationship drama. The trailer also gives us a better idea of Woody Harrelson’s Cletus Kasady.
Cletus is in maximum security prison for his crimes as a serial killer. But when Eddie comes to profile him, Cletus bites Venom’s host and ends up with enough symbiote DNA to create an equal and more dangerous version of Carnage.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage will also bring back Anne, played by Michelle Williams, Eddie’s lover from the first film. He is described as engaged. The sequel will also feature Naomie Harris as Shriek which we briefly saw in the trailer.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage will release in theaters September 24. The film is directed by Andy Serkis.
Venom tells the story of journalist Eddie Brock, who during the course of investigating experiments at the Life Foundation, ends up bonding with an alien symbiote, while the lab is experimenting on humans and symbiotic life forms. The symbiote, named Venom, manifests in Eddie’s body as a monstrous creature and grants him special abilities.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage shows Eddie Brock trying hard to get back to his normal life. Venom, who doesn’t like this, attacks Eddie, forcing him to eat his prey. Until finally, when it needed to appear, Venom had a bit of an argument with Eddie. He asks Eddie to promise to return to eating humans.
Carnage and Venom share the same biology as they are both symbiotes. In the comics, it is also stated that Carnage is actually a descendant of Venom.
Because of that, Carnage is said to be stronger than his ‘father’. Carnage and Cletus Kasady’s bond made him far more ruthless than Venom.
Because Kasady is a serial killer who has a sadistic personality and their bond is stronger than Venom and Eddie. Carnage is more deadly than Venom. It can also be seen from the larger size, the many arms as weapons
Director Andy Serkis who worked on Venom: Let There Be Carnage, compared Venom with Gollum. In a video on Apple TV featuring Serkis talking about the film.
He discussed how he previously played a two-sided character and linked him to Venom. He talks about how he wants Carnage to look and move.
“I’ve spent most of my life playing characters with two sides to their personalities and there are similarities there. Digital characters have to be serious. They have to be totally believable. I wanted to find a physical vocabulary for Carnage that was completely different from Venom,” said Gollum in Lord of the Rings.
