Venom: Let There be Carnage Pre-production
Reid Scott, who played Weying’s ex-boyfriend Dan in the previous film, was set to return in September 2019. In addition, Shriek was scheduled to feature as the film’s secondary antagonist and as Carnage’s love interest. In mid-October, Naomie Harris was cast in the role. Stephen Graham, who plays Detective Mulligan, had also joined the picture by the end of the year. Considering the success of the R-rated Joker (2019) and other popular R-rated comic book films such as Deadpool (2016) and Logan, Tolmach believes the sequel may be classed R. (2017).
The first Venom’s PG-13 rating led to box office success, but Tolmach emphasized that they wouldn’t modify the franchise’s tone just because it had succeeded for others. Because of this, Venom 2 will center on Brock and Venom’s connection. Tencent Pictures, a Chinese production firm, co-financed the sequel after doing the same for the original.
Venom: Let There be Carnage Cast
Tom Hardy would have to reprise his role as Eddie Brock, the journalist who shares a human body with Venom if we were to see Venom 2 and more cast to be expected as follow as
Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock / Venom
Michelle Williams as Anne Weying: A district attorney and Eddie’s ex-fiancée
Naomie Harris as Frances Barrison / Shriek: Kasady’s love interest, whom Serkis described as a damaged soul who has been living in isolation and has a dark side to her.

Stephen Graham as Mulligan: A detective hoping to use Brock to find the remains of Kasady’s murder victims.

Venom: Let There be Carnage Plot
Serkis disclosed a little more about the narrative of the film in his trailer breakdown, saying: “They’ve reached the “Odd Couple” stage of their relationship. They’ve been dating for about a year and a half, according to the previous article. And they’re figuring out how to interact with one another. And it’s like living with a crazed kid.”
Serkis went on to depict Eddie and Venom’s poor relationship, with Eddie “very straining” to focus or work, and Venom feeling imprisoned “because he can’t leave Eddie’s body until he gets his consent.”
So, apart from whatever antics Shriek and Carnage get up to, Venom: Let There Be Carnage will eventually be about Eddie and Venom’s ongoing problems.
This is consistent with Venom’s producer Matt Tolmach’s introductory remarks that the sequel would center on Eddie and Venom’s connection (via CinemaBlend.) “The bond between Eddie and Venom was always at the core of Venom.”
According to producer Avi Arad, the film will not be R-rated despite the larger ensemble and, especially, more villains. “When you hear the word Carnage, the only thing that comes to mind is R. But, if you know his narrative, if you know the comic, you’ll see that there’s no R here “He revealed this to Collider.
“He has a tortured soul. It’s not about what he does since we never have to see the knife moving from here to there with blood streaming. What you must demonstrate is the motive.”
Venom: Let There be Carnage will hit theatre only
If you’re wondering if the film will be available on streaming sites, the answer is NO. According to the teaser, the film will be released only in theatres. So, although the picture is still in theatres, it will not be available on a streaming service. Following that, the rights will be sold to the Starz network as part of the label’s long-standing agreement with the network. On the other hand, Sony just inked a deal with Netflix, so the picture will almost certainly be available on the OTT platform at some time. Sony has also inked a contract with Disney, although it is only for projects that will be released after 2022, and Venom 2 will not be one of them.
There’s also a chance that Venom 2 will cross over with the upcoming Morbius film starring Jared Leto, and more, which is set in the same world. Once any further information is out, we will keep you updated.
