It’s happening! Not only did Sony get their Venom movie off the ground a couple years ago, with very positive results. But we are now also getting a movie where Venom fights Carnage! Oh what a world!
It’s mind-boggling that this has become a reality. I was only lukewarm on the Venom movie. The only thing I liked about it was the Eddie Brock/Venom character combination. And Jenny Slate was criminally underused.
But here we are with a sequel! And they’re going full Carnage, like they clearly wanted to do from the beginning. But the origin story is out of the way and now we can just do Carnage! Why not? It’s not like the first movie ruined hard-to-see dark blob symbiotes smashing into each other for the big screen.
I’m excited to see how they pull this off.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage arrives in theaters on Sept. 24!
