As a journalist, Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) has long tried to unmask the founder of the Life Foundation, the famous scientific genius Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed), an obsession that has ruined his career and his relationship with his girlfriend, Anne (Michelle Williams). Investigating one of Drake’s experiments, the alien entity Venom merges with Eddie’s body, and the reporter suddenly gains incredible new superpowers, as well as the opportunity to do just about anything he wants.
Twisted, dark, unpredictable and driven by rage, Venom: Let There Be Carnage movie forces Eddie to fight to control extremely dangerous abilities that are also intoxicating and powerful at the same time. Since Eddie and Venom need each other to get what they want, they become more and more intertwined.
This is the synopsis of Venom, a Sony movie that belongs to the Spiderman universe, but not the entire MCU despite being a Marvel character. The film has flaws and was not very well received by critics, but it was strong with viewers and managed to gross more than 800 million worldwide.
Months after its premiere, Venom arrives on Netflix with great anticipation and has become the most watched on the platform since its premiere.
The premiere was scheduled for October this year, but the coronavirus crisis has slowed filming and the premiere has been postponed indefinitely. ‘Venom 2’ was originally going to be directed by Ruben Fleischer, director of the first part, but due to problems with agendam he has dropped out of the project, being replaced by Andy Serkis (the actor who played Gollum in The Lord of the rings).
Venom: There Will Be Carnage will continue right where the first one ended after the post credits scene. Woody Harrelson makes a brief appearance as Cletus Kasady at the end of Venom with the intention of playing the villain role in the sequel.
