The upcoming Venom sequel will introduce the world to his most iconic offspring, Carnage. Even as the franchise has not connected to Spider-Man, it is trying to build up its universe and rules. Of course, throwing out one of the biggest characters from the symbiote family in the second film seems like Sony is already showing their hand too early. Yet, director Andy Serkis believes that there’s enough to play around with for sequels. In an interview with ScreenRant, he teases that we might have just scratched the surface for potential villains.
But I think there’s real mileage in some of the other supervillains that reside in Ravencroft. There’s such fertile ground to be uncovered there. That would be the sandbox I’d be really interested in playing. Who’s lurking in there that could break out?Andy Serkis
It’s certainly curious and might be a good sign that the film’s hiding some Easter eggs once we enter Ravencroft. Trailers did show Carnage’s escape, which might be how some of these bad guys find their way onto the streets. So, Let There Be Carnage may also kickstart the franchise and introduce a variety of thugs for our favorite symbiote to take on. If they start connecting the universes, it would be interesting to see if they would also introduce a new host for Venom. Imagine Tom Hardy‘s Eddie Brock losing him to a character like Mac Gargan. They have built up their relationship quite a bit and seeing a fallout between them, only for Venom to realize how good he had it would make for some fun drama. Plus, they’d not rely too much on a symbiote vs. symbiote format for these films.
