It sounds as though another famed Marvel symbiote will be showing up in the Venom movie.
The Hollywood Reporter has learned that the villainous Caranage - aka Cletus Kasady - is set to square off with Eddie Brock in the upcoming Spidey spinoff.
"As for the expansion plans, Tom Hardy is starring in Venom, dated for Oct. 5, 2018, which will also feature the villain Carnage."
This should really come as no surprise. Carnage is really the only natural fit to oppose Venom, and the pair have had an interesting past within the pages of Marvel Comics. The character, who debuted in the pages of The Amazing Spider-Man #344 back in 1991, is a serial-killer who merges with the Venom symbiote during a prison breakout.
The same article goes on to mention that, while Tom Holland is only contractually obligated to do Spider-Man 2 and 3, there are plans in place to possibly bring him into the Sony film.
"A source says Holland is only contractually obligated to Spider-Man 2 and 3, but the intention is to bring him into the spinoffs and possibly other Marvel films (he is currently shooting Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War)."
Seems like the next logical step to us!
Venom hits the big screen on October 5th, 2018.
