Venom: Let There Be Carnage is an upcoming superhero action film starring Tom Hardy and the second film in the Venom franchise.


On October 5th, 2018, Sony Pictures released the film Venom in the United States. During the film's post-credit sequence, the character Cletus Kasady, also known as Carnage, (portrayed by Woody Harrelson) appears on screen (shown below).

The following year, on August 5th, 2019, The Hollywood Reporter[2] announced that actor Andy Serikis had been hired to direct the film. That day, Serkis announced his hiring on Instagram.

The post received more than 55,000 likes in less than one year (shown below).
