Even though fans have to be patient for almost an entire year for Venom 2, the first details of the plot have now become known. In addition to main counterpart Carnage now another villain was announced, which will make it difficult for Venom.
In Venom 2, Eddie Brocks and Symbiont Venom get a strong headwind. The psychopathic serial killer Cletus Kassady, who was presented at the end of the first film, will also connect with a symbiont in the second part. The resulting creature is called Carnage and is in the comics the most brutal and bloodthirsty opponent Spider-Man. The combination of psychopathic host and aggressive symbionts makes Carnage an opponent that even Venom is dangerous. The fact that Carnage is Venom's opponent in his second solo film has recently been officially confirmed.
But Carnage will not make life difficult for Venom alone. He still gets help from Shriek, a female superhero who can fly, shoot sound waves and control the thoughts of other people with the help of their worst fears. Shriek is a drug-baron escort who unleashed her powers after a trauma. In the comics Shriek is the lover of Carnage. Currently looking for an actress who could embody Shriek. Allegedly, Sony is looking for a newcomer and not a Hollywood star.
Whoever joins the cast next to Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams and Woody Harrelson will show up over time. Until Venom 2 starts in the cinema, several months pass. The sequel is scheduled to start on October 2, 2020 in American cinemas. Although a German theatrical release is not yet known, but should be close to the US start.
