I think I am still in the minority when I say that Venom is an entertaining movie. It’s messy and weird, but kinda lovable in the sense that Tom Hardy is given free reign to just let loose and be this conflicted dork in the most enduring of ways.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage immediately sounded like an interesting endeavor, because they are introducing Carnage (played by Woody Harrelson) and yet still continuing the weird romance between Hardy and Michelle Williams‘ character.
Carnage is a character most popular from the comics for being the “harder” and more “R-rated” take on the bond between man and symbiote. The man that morphs into Carnage is a murderer with absolutely no redeemable traits, which makes his introduction into this cinematic universe (loosely associated with Marvel) interesting, because you’d think, Sony definitely has to go hard R with this, right?
I’m guessing Sony borderlines the PG-13 rating, much like they did to financial success with the first Venom, which surprised pretty much everyone.
Andy Serkis is stepping in for directing duties, with a script written by Kelly Marcel.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage opens exclusively in cinemas across the globe this September.
