A little over two weeks ago the first official trailer for the movie “Venom: There will be Carnage” / “Venom: Let There be Carnage” arrived. An advance that came along with a significant amount of information from director Andy Serkis. Details that covered in what situation we would find Eddie Brock with respect to the previous film, the relationship between him and the villain Carnage, etc.
In the midst of all that amount of detail, the filmmaker also spoke about the supervillains of the film. This comes from a resurgence of those comments Serkis made a few weeks ago. The words of the director of the second Venom: Let There Be Carnage movie were more extensive than what we summarized at the time, and that is why it is convenient to make this extension. The interesting thing is that it references more Marvel characters than have been officially announced.
These words fit the rumors that have been sounding for months and that indicate that we are not only going to have Carnage / Matanza as a villain, but that we could have other appearances. Obviously nothing is confirmed, but these are the words of the director when he talks about the Ravencroft prison.
Obviously, Serkis’s words evoke Francis Barrison (Naomie Harris), alias Shriek / Grito, a Ravencroft Institute recluse who in the comics has been a companion of misdeeds and even a lover of Matanza. A shot of Naomi could also be seen in the trailer. About her, Serkis explained that “she is a damaged soul and has really suffered from it in her childhood” and that in the film we will see “a very, very dangerous and dark side of her”. All unconfirmed if we will see Barrison as the villain Shriek. It should be remembered that we also have the potential appearance of Toxin, although he is allied with Venom in the comics.
The sequel, set in the Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel characters, follows investigative reporter Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy), now with 18 months of experience as a lethal protector alongside the alien symbiote Venom, who works with Detective Mulligan (Stephen Graham) and the San Francisco Police Department to find the bodies of victims killed by serial killer Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson), an inmate at Ravencroft. But when the lethal injection execution goes awry and the killer escapes from San Quentin State Prison, Kasady bonds with the blood-red symbiote that he will use to unleash the ultimate carnage.
