Will Venom Battle His Alien Offspring in 'Spider-Man' Spinoff?
Social media site for "Amazing Spider-Man 2" may have already pointed at a future villain for the "Venom" spin-off, tease producers.
Venom may not be the only alien symbiote to appear in the planned Amazing Spider-Man spin-off, according to producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach. Turns out the Daily Bugle Tumblr site may be teasing more than just Amazing Spider-Man 2 after all…
IGN asked Arad and Tolmach about a story that ran on the Bugle Tumblr last week in which Eddie Brock — a Bugle reporter who becomes Venom in Spider-Man mythology — reported on the capture of Cletus Kasady, an “escaped serial killer and notorious redhead.”
In the comic book continuity, Kasady joined with an offshoot of the alien that turned Brock into Venom to become Carnage, a psychopathic super villain with all of Spider-Man’s powers but none of the responsibility (or even the tortured anti-hero responsibility of Venom). When IGN asked whether or not Carnage would appear in the Venom movie, Arad said “What a great idea.”
“The idea of Venom and Carnage?” asked Tolmach. “Taking it into consideration. Watch out for this Venom movie. We are crazy excited.”
