The early reactions to Venom: Let There Be Carnage have arrived, and here’s what people are saying about Tom Hardy’s highly-anticipated sequel.
The first reactions to Venom: Let There Be Carnage have arrived. Sony kicked off its own Spider-Man Cinematic Universe in 2018 with the first Venom, which was a huge hit financially. The success gave Sony confidence in making more movies starring Spider-Man villains, including a Venom sequel that brings Tom Hardy back as Eddie Brock. Venom: Let There Be Carnage is directed by Andy Serkis and was originally meant to release in 2020 prior to multiple delays caused by COVID-19.
The main hook for Venom: Let There Be Carnage is the opportunity to show Venom fight Carnage. Woody Harrelson had a cameo as Cletus Kasady in Venom‘s post-credits scene, but it is in the sequel that Carnage will emerge and be the latest symbiotic threat for Eddie Brock and Venom to defeat. Venom: Let There Be Carnage also brings Michelle Williams back as Anne Weying aka She-Venom and introduces Naomie Harris as Shriek. There have also been rumors about how the movie connects to other Sony Spider-Man projects, including Tom Holland’s Spidey and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This has only increased interest in the sequel.
