Venom 2: Woody Harrelson Carnage Image Reveals A Re-Imagined Version

Nice shirt Cletus.

29 Comments

The sequel to 2018's hugely successful Spider-Man spin-off Venom is currently in production, ahead of its October release. The movie stars Tom Hardy as reporter Eddie Brock, who is host to the titular alien symbiote, Venom. Woody Harrelson will play the character of Cletus Kasady, who has been possessed by the equally dangerous Carnage. The first image of Harrelson from the Venom 2 set has been posted by Hardy.

Fans of Venom will remember that Harrelson actually appeared as Kasady in that movie's post-credit sequence, where he was sitting behind bars. Based on the new image, it seems that he's out of jail in Venom 2 and has undergone a makeover.

More specifically, the terrible wig that Harrelson was wearing has thankfully gone, and he's now wearing a very colourful shirt. Check Hardy's Instagram post out below. [UPDATE: Hardy has now removed the post, but you can still see the image in the tweet below.]

Venom 2 is directed by Andy Serkis, who takes over from the first movie's Ruben Fleischer, and also stars Michelle Williams, Stephen Graham, and Reid Scott. In October, it was reported that Bond star Naomie Harris was in talks to join the cast as the villainous Shriek, but this is yet to be confirmed. The film hits theaters on October 2.

Venom is one of several characters from Marvel's Spider-Man comic books that Sony is basing new movies on. The next release will be Morbius, which hits theaters in July and stars Jared Leto as the "living vampire" of the title. The first Morbius trailer was released in January.

Why does it seem like a lot of these articles have already been posted in the past? I swear I have seen this same one multiple times here. Right down to the "UPDATE: Hardy has now removed the post, but you can still see the image in the tweet below."

The first movie Venom was just trash. No conceivable plot, incoherent pacing, underwater CGI, and acts 2-3 crashed into a mountain. But, Tom Hardy william shatner'ed the **** out the script and deserves some praise. Still though Venom was a very weak character in the MCU and less so with out spiderman. And Carnage was even less so.

Venom movie looked like it was all shot on sound stages and everything was kept dark to hide tearing CGI throughout. With a bigger budget and the film staying as much as they can on Harrelson and Hardy a sequel could be pulled off. If half the movie was just on Cassidy becoming Carnage with a long strong performance by Harrelson, then we could have something.

I have no idea why so many went to the theatre to watch Venom, though, glad i saw it .... later.

Here is a comprehensive review. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5V-1awbWYSw Venom Moviebob review.

I still have not seen Venom. For some reason, it did not feel right. I am correct 99% of the time when I am not eager to see a film based on a bad feeling from the trailer.

Good! I left the theatre with a bad taste in my mouth after seeing that wig. It wasn't even close to reasonable.

Having watched Venom recently, I can't believe it got a sequel.

Venom doesn't possess Eddie Brock until the second half of the movie, they made up a bunch of lore for the symbiotes in this franchise which are terrible, and the movie is too damn dark, especially since the main character is a pitch black CGI monster.

@WarGreymon77: Why do they need to give Spider-Man to Marvel - because Disney is buying everything up and they can't get certain Marvel characters? If they ever get him, superhero films will be played out, since Marvel is coming with new world order propaganda.

@superdoyle1: It got a sequel cause it brought in a ton of money lol. Maybe now that they have an empty slate and not trying to write and rewrite a movie from ten years ago, it'll turn out better.

Just make the movie Rated R , i mean even in the comics they show how brutal he is by dismemebering and impaling people. we gotta see that to its full glory.

making it Rated R will not affect sales from kids because their parents will take them anyway. When i saw Deadpool on premier night it had plenty of kids there with their parents.

@alastor529: So many flaws with the movie that can't be corrected by simply having blood, gore and swear words. Most everything wrong with the film fundamentally is at its core.

Venom’s Eddie Brock must be one of Tom Hardy’s most boring characters he has ever portrayed.
