In this world of superheroes, Sony’s Marvel Universe, along with Columbia Pictures, has brought us super villains like Venom. After being spotted in Spiderman 3, Venom attracted the attention of its viewers with its inexplicable and mysterious nature. Though, in the first part of the 2018 movie, Venom, we don’t find any connection with the Spiderman series.
This point has irked the viewers and the critics, bringing negative reviews to the film. But that didn’t prevent it from rising to the charts of popularity becoming one of the highest-grossing films of the year.
The first part shows how the entry of Venom became a turning point in Eddie’s messy life.
Venom… Spoiler Alert!!!
The movie begins with a bio-engineering corporation, Life Foundation discovering a comet covered in symbiotic lifeforms. Investigative reporter Eddie Brock finds out about the incident and confronts the director of Life Foundation, Carlton Drake, not getting much out of him. The movie then takes a six-month leap where Life Foundation, employee, Dora Skirth confronts Eddie asking him to help her. It is while helping her that Venom gets into Eddie. And with the flow of the movie becomes an inevitable part of his disheveled life.
The movie portrays an unnatural friendship between Venom and Eddie, who help each other to make their lives better. Though the movie ends with Eddie returning to journalism, in a mid-credits scene, we find him being invited to interview the incarcerated serial killer Cletus Kasady, who promises “carnage” when he escapes.
That brings us to Venom 2, where Cletus Kasady is expected to have his promised “carnage” after his escape.
Venom 2 is expected to release on October 2, 2020.
We can hope to see the following stars in the second part of the movie,
- Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock / Venom
- Woody Harrelson as Cletus Kasady / Carnage
- Michelle Williams as Anne Weying
- Reid Scott as Dan Lewis
- Naomie Harris as Shriek
in the lead roles.
Also, there is news about Stephen Graham being cast in an undisclosed role.
Though a lot of buzzes has been created by the fake trailers on youtube, none seem to be an official one.
Stay tuned for more updates!!!
