“This character was so much fun to work on in design and to take [from] the comic world,” director Andy Serkis previously told IGN of bringing these Spider-Man anitheroes and villains to life. “It was wonderful having the opportunity to take this character that’s never been seen before on screen, as much as you do get to know him in our story and to really play with the physicality, how he moves, how he extrudes his tentacles.”
Venom: Let There Be Carnage pits Venom against his arch-nemesis from the comics, Carnage. Serkis directs the film, based on a screenplay written by Kelly Marcel, from a story by Marcel and Tom Hardy. Hardy stars as Eddie Brock / Venom with Woody Harrelson as Cletus Kasady / Carnage, Michelle Williams as Anne Weying, Reid Scott as Anne Weying’s boyfriend, Dan Lewis, Naomie Harris as Shriek, and Stephen Graham is playing Patrick Mulligan, who becomes host to the symbiote Toxin in the comics.
