Carnage will reportedly be the villain in the Venom solo film.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock will be facing off against Carnage. In the comics, Carnage is a symbiote, just like Venom, who attached to Brock’s prison cellmate, serial killer Cletus Kassidy.
The Hollywood Reporter has also heard that, even though Spider-Man star Tom Holland is only contractually obligated to Spider-Man 2 and 3, the plan is to still bring him into the spinoffs films, like Venom, as well as potentially other Marvel movies.
Venom will open in theaters on October 5, 2018, with Zombieland’s Ruben Fleischer set to direct.
